Cafe No.8 @ The Merchant Adventurers Hall

“A little bit of history and a little bit of lunch”

Café No.8 at the Merchant Adventurers Hall is somewhere you can have lunch without pausing your sightseeing.


Café No.8 have had a lovely café/bistro on Gillygate for a few years and have run the café in York Art Gallery since its relaunch, but you may not have noticed that they’ve recently opened up in a new venue – the Merchant Adventurers Hall on Fossgate/Piccadilly. The medieval guild hall was built in 1357 and is a stunning building with a fascinating history to match. It has fully recovered from the devastating floods that damaged so many buildings along the Foss and should feature on any tour of York (it’s included in the YorkPass).


Take a look at the photos, read more about the Merchant Adventurers Hall here and plan to have lunch there during your sightseeing in York!
