Walking around York came across the different street food cabins. Great selection of food. Smells delicious and tastes as good too!

A visit to York isn’t complete without a trip to the Shambles Kitchen for a pulled pork bap. They make the most amazing pulled pork. The staff always seem happy and cheerful. They serve you quickly and efficiently. My favourite food place in York

Consistently great taste, value and friendly staff, the market stall version around the corner serving burritos is also good but the original shop in the shambles serving street food boxes, pulled pork and slow Cooked beef rolls is a must.

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.
