The Nook is a relaxed hideaway, perfect for a fresh cup of slow roasted coffee or a bite to eat from our locally sourced menu. Better still, nestle in and we'll craft your favourite tipple into a delicious cocktail or suggest something new for you to try. Tucked away down a charming street in York city centre, we've got plenty of space for you to spread out with the paper or catch up with friends.
