Skosh Is

Skosh started simply, as a word that represented a concept.

It has evolved into a contemporary dining room serving uncomplicated yet refined dishes in a comfortable and informal manner.

At Skosh, we serve our food in the form of snacks and small plates, this allows you to have as little or as much as you want, grazing as you go, or if you prefer, gradually served course by course to give you a complete dining experience.

Chef proprietor Neil Bentinck and his team of local tradesmen reimagined the space of a Grade II listed building, situated just beyond the ‘Micklegate Bar‘, a 12th Century gateway into the Historic city of York. A bespoke dining room with an open plan kitchen was designed to specifically create a unique experience in which to enjoy the eclectic food on offer.

We do look forward to welcoming you soon.
