Coffee Shop

The original Bothy was built in July 1991 as part of a major re-development at our York site and in 1995 due to its ever increasing popularity the kitchen was extended and an outdoor seating area and garden was built.

Due to the growing popularity of The Bothy, a new, larger Coffee Shop was built and opened in March 2017.

We do not have a booking system in place, please just turn up and a member of staff will endeavour to seat you as quickly as possible. Once seated, please be considerate to those waiting for a table.

We also have a separate menu made from non-gluten containing ingredients.

In addition, we offer an option of a smaller portion for many of our meals, which is a popular choice for anyone who prefers a lighter meal. A Children’s menu is also available.

Please note, many of our dishes are homemade and cooked to order, and although we always endeavour to serve our customers as quickly as possible, there may be some delays during the very busy periods.

We serve a selection of speciality teas and coffees as well as a selection of cold beverages. Our coffee is made with Puro, a blend of coffees which are ethically traded with Fair Trade Certification and a percentage of the profit from every cup we sell is donated to the World Land Trust.

Our daily selection of homemade cakes, desserts and pastries can be viewed at the service counter.
