Barley Hall Coffee Shop

Continue your historic exploration of York with a relaxing hot drink in the new Barley Hall Coffee Shop.

More than a café, immerse yourself in the history of our newest venue, once home to Thomas Gent’s printing shop and an 18th-Century coffee house. Perfect for refreshment indoors, or al fresco in the aptly-named Coffee Yard.

Where possible our produce is locally sourced from businesses such as bread, cakes and pastries from Haxby Bakehouse and Bluebird Bakery as well as our very own coffee blend from York Emporium.

Make sure you pick up one of our loyalty cards too, so you can get your 10th drink for free.

Opening timings

We are open between 10am – 4pm daily.

Except 24th-26th of December we are closed for Christmas. 

Venue     :  Barley Hall Coffee Shop

Phone     :  01904615505

Address  :  2 Coffee Yard
