Yorkshire's Independent Restaurant Guide

Spurriergate Centre, York

St Michael’s, a redundant city centre church has been given new life as a cafe known as the Spurriergate Centre, and if lunch in the presence of the Order of Nine Angels and the Tree of Jesse, depicted in 15th century stained glass, appeals then this is the place to say grace. Even the altar is there, complete with the Ten Commandments and the Apostles’ Creed on the ornamental screen. With grand civic pomposity, St Michael’s magnificent 18th century doors record the names of the city’s mayors. The food is fine if plainer than such surroundings: soups, potato bake, mushroom strogonoff and a selection of scones and cakes. A cheap and cheerful shopping stop with profits going towards Christian charitable projects in the city.
