We have very opposite opinions on the pulled pork bap: my partner liked it and would rate it a 6.5 out of 10 whereas I took a bite and felt immediately sick by the burnt cheese flavour. Needless to say I couldn't eat the rest...More

very small shop on the shambles but the food is great. i would say you have to take the food away as the shop is very small and if it gets busy there isnt much space too sit down the staff are very friendly.

Much better choice for a quick snack before the Comedy fringe than a restaurant. Great fresh, tasty food

Stopped at this small cozy shop for lunch during my day trip. Was recommended the Rueben, and watched in delight as it was freshly prepared in front of me -- a blow torch was even used to melt the cheese! So much meat, so much...More

Shambles Kitchen sells some of the best year-round takeout food in York. Their freshly made specials are always delicious, and their sandwiches (pulled pork and the newer reuben-style) are excellent. Highly recommended and well worth stopping off during a visit.

Possibly the best pulled pork sandwich I've ever had. Speedy service! Small but varied menu! Loved the styling of the place too!

MUST ORDER: Coconut Cool Smoothie. Shambles Reuben. This is quite a small sandwich bar on the Shambles. The seating area is quite small and not especially comfortable however the quality of the food and drink definitely makes up for this, and is worth visiting to...More

Hello. The shop is open as normal but the burrito stall is closed. As always it's best to come before 3pm to avoid things selling out. Enjoy, Simon

Hello. If you're referring to the kebab stall, yes. And it is possible to have it without onion. We have a limited veggie menu at events due to the amount of chicken we get through. Fridge space is at a premium. Hope that's... More

Thanks Amanda. The daily meaty special (except on Sunday) and soup of the day are gluten free. You can also have the pulled pork with salad in a box, instead of bread. And it's not on the menu, but we do a salad box... More

A small sandwich shop with a big reputation. Everything is made from scatch, on site, to our own recipes. We only have 8 seats but have a very quick turnaround and all our food is available to takeaway. Our specialty is our succulent Pulled Pork sandwich and Shambles Reuben. The meats are smoked overnight, rested for 1 hour and served quick-sharp to avoid drying out. Come between 11am and 3pm to avoid missing out on it.
