The Ivy St Helen’s Square Brasserie brings friendly, sophisticated all-day dining to the city of York. From modern British cuisine to brasserie-style classics and fantastic vegan and vegetarian dishes, there’s something for everyone to love, seven days a week.

Within easy reach of the city’s most iconic sites, including York Minster and the National Railway Museum, our restaurant offers a luxurious haven for tourists and locals alike. A striking, marble-topped bar and locally inspired artwork are a feast for the eyes, while burnt orange leather banquettes offer comfort and a vibrant pop of colour.

We also have an elegant private dining room for special celebrations and big-occasion dining. Whether you’re booking for breakfast, brunch, dinner, lunch, or a Champagne tea with friends, everything you need is right here.
