No. 88 Walmgate is the latest restaurant to open in York’s most foodie of destinations. Inspiring diners to delight in all things Yorkshire, the focus is simple, cracking dishes with lots of local flavours and seasonal ingredients.

88 Walmgate

Everybody’s favourites are on this menu, I want guests to enjoy warm Yorkshire hospitality with delicious local food and have a great night out.

- Mike Sweeting, General Manager Hotel Indigo York, boutique hotel in York. 

West Riding steaks, Harrogate blue cheese and – of course – Yorkshire pudding are among the hand-selected dishes on the main menu. The Yorkshire Wagyu Steak Burger is set to become a firm favourite. Wagyu Beef was once only eaten by Japanese emperors but we won’t be checking your credentials! A Plate Pie of the season with its light puff pastry topping, features chicken, beef, boar or mutton according to what’s in the market or chef’s mood that day. Fish lovers can choose between Roasted Sea Bass with, chive mash or Grilled Salmon with spinach and tomato butter sauce.

Puddings feature strongly on our York hotel's restaurant menu. Choices include Strawberry and Wakefield Rhubarb Crumble, Almond Bakewell Tart and a delicious Mature Wensleydale Cheese. Diners in a daring mood should try the 88 Freakshake – a riotously decadent concoction of local Yorvale ice cream and toppings – but you may not finish it!

A mix of local craft ales and beers appears alongside a well-chosen wine list to complement the menu or simply enjoy at the bar with some simple bar snacks.

No. 88 is open daily from 12 noon until 10 pm for food in York and you can choose your dishes to suit the time of day. At lunchtime, there is a short selection of soups, sandwiches (or butties if you prefer) the Yorkshire Wagyu burger and beer battered fish and chips. The house salad features Yorkshire feta cheese and a garlic dressing. The restaurant also offers a special menu for young diners, a lunch menu including the ‘ey-up butty’ and tapas-style selections, which are ideal for sharing.

The restaurant was designed by architects Matthews Mee and is a light airy space with different seating areas to suit your mood. The 65 cover restaurant also has a separate area ideal for private parties of 10.

This hotel is a gem, comfortable, personal, with delicious food, and non-ostentatious, yet with all the amenities you could ask for.

Hotel Indigo York Reviews



A lovely hotel within walking distance to the centre of York. Very friendly, helpful staff on reception, bar area and dining room. The rooms were immaculately clean and well presented. The bed was absolutely huge and was extremely comfortable. The hotel has a modern, funky feel to it and was very welcoming. The breakfast was superb . Would definitely stay here again.



<p>Conveniently positioned within easy walking distance of the city and Minster. This was our third visit so obviously we’re fans. That said although the previous visits were excellent this time the stay was even better. On check in we were given a complimentary upgrade to a superior room as IHG elite members. The room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Large TV. Massive comfortable bed with high quality bedding. Complimentary snacks with fresh milk and the bonus of a Nespresso coffee machine complete with six “pods”. Decent sized bathroom which was clean and well stocked with quality toiletries. Breakfast on both mornings was excellent. Wide choice of hot and cold items. Plenty of quality juices and smoothies. Service excellent even when busy nothing seems rushed. Very highly recommended.</p>



Excellent hotel. Rooms very nice and extremely clean and quiet. Friendly staff both at reception and restaurant. Breakfast had fantastic choice. Location was really good lots of nice bars and restaurants just minutes away. Short walk to the Shambles and they offered parking just 2 minutes away for a small daily charge. Would definitely stay again. 5 Stars.


Perth, Australia

We have found that it’s the little things that make a huge difference when you’re travelling. They’ve nailed the little things here! You’re always warmly greeted when you pass reception. Comfortable bed, soft towels, immaculate room and free chocolate in the fridge! Breakfast is delicious and finally a coffee I enjoyed. Location is fabulous and parking was easy. Well done to the Team at Hotel Indigo.



We stayed at the Indigo for my birthday recently. It was very modern with quirky room features. The breakfast was world class - such a great variety of treats, including a good selection of gluten and dairy free food. The staff were very helpful and attentive.

Stayed for 2 nights, very good quality modern hotel with good sized rooms and breakfast. Cold buffet and hot food freshly cooked to order . Great location within a 5/10 minute walk of York center. Would highly recommend.



<p>My partner, daughter and I stayed for 3 nights on a city break in April 2018. The room was great, Fresh milk in the complimentary mini fridge, fantastic big bed, really really clean, excellent room service and thick black out curtains. The service was excellent from all the staff at all times - reception staff were helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was also fantastic, so much choice on offer and again, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is really well located for the city. It was excellent value for money and we would definitely stay there again. Absolutely 10/10 all round.</p>

This is a nice hotel in a quiet area of York, but still within easy walking distance of the city centre / shambles walls etc. Lovely continental breakfast and a quiet bar area. Ideal if you want a bit of peace in a busy city.

We had a very pleasant stay on a Saturday night when visiting York. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the Shambles and central York area. The staff were all good and friendly with good check in service and also in the bar. The breakfast choice and service was also very good. The room and the hotel was decorated very well. We stay here again if staying in York.
