Perfect venue for a decadent banqueting experience

Discover a unique gastronomic experience inspired by the sumptuous banquets of the Middle Ages right in the heart of modern day York this festive season!

Barley Hall, York’s hidden medieval townhouse, is decorated for the festive season and is the perfect venue for a decadent banqueting experience, inspired by the Lords and Ladies of the medieval period.

Take your seat at the dining table of William Snawsell, Goldsmith, Alderman and former Lord Mayor of York as he invites you and your guests to make yourselves at home in the stunning Great Hall, with its exposed timbers and vaulted ceiling.

Your guests are sure to leave feeling satisfied and full of festive spirit!

You also have exclusive access to all of Barley Hall, meaning that you and your guests can explore this fascinating building and uncover the many stories it tells. Make sure to check out our special ‘Magic & Mystery’ exhibition as well before the banquet is served.
