I love this place for food, it's my type of food and my type of place. Loads of fresh ingredients and all homemade, none of this processed rubbish. I love to eat a healthy balanced diet and tend to cook all my food from scratch...More

I’m not sure my unfavourable review disappeared last week, I’m guessing the owner reported me for voicing my opinion that £6 (or even £5:50) is expensive for a juice. Maybe smaller options could be offered so that not all customers have to shell out this...More

Hi Jem. In your last 1 star review you said our £6 (it’s £5.50) juice was expensive compared to the £4 Green Juice at the Ivy. You haven’t made that comparison this time. But for those that missed it... I explained the Ivy Green Juice...More

I haven't been here in ages, but I love it. Great food, with a short but varied menu which makes choosing easy. Each day they have a soup of the day plus a meaty option (like chill, chicken tagine etc) as well as a couple...More

I have visited the Shambles Kitchen on numerous occasions over the years and have always been impressed with the high quality of the tasty and imaginative food and drink. All freshly-prepared and served with a smile. There is nothing else like this in York

We try and come to eat at Shambles Kitchen every time we come into York. It provides really good vegetarian options, perfect for my daughters, and the famous pulled pork or chicken shawarma for my husband. Really good flavours. Staff are friendly too.

Hello! We only have a few tables so we don’t take reservations. It’s a very quick turnaround though as people are only eating a sandwich. If it’s a nice day you can also eat out food in the Shambles Market covered area... 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

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.
