On the corner of Davygate and New Street, our York Davygate store might look as it always has from the outside, with its traditional, ornate crest above the doorway. But take a look behind the doors and you’ll discover that we’ve taken it back to some of its original look and feel, with an added touch or two.
The large, bespoke back bar has room for books and proudly displays York rose carving, while the single seat booths make the most of the narrow space so you can enjoy the views they offer over the busy city street.
Upstairs, we’ve stripped right back to the original brick and exposed the view onto an old churchyard. While natural light floods across the tall bookshelves and central fireplace, casting the image of nearby All Saints Bell Tower onto the window pane.
By evening, the store is softly lit by reclaimed scissor lights from an old factory in the former Czech Republic; it’s ideal for people watching by day or at sundown.
