Situated on the edge of Regent’s Park in London, and a stone’s throw from Primrose Hill, York & Albany makes for a perfect pitstop for you and your pooped pooch after a morning game of fetch. With a focus on fresh ingredients, a seasonal, modern British menu is served in a stunning regency townhouse setting at this dog-friendly London restaurant. On warmer days, you and fido can relax in the picturesque courtyard while you tuck into a delicious Sunday roast, or one of their speciality woodstone baked pizzas.

Food and Drink

At the York & Albany

Hues of grey and purple, amidst soaring ceilings and dark wood furnishings, make for a warming gastropub-feel that perfectly matches the classic British menu of this Gordon Ramsay eatery.

Dinner choices change regularly to bring you the best of what’s in season, so flavours are always perfect for the time of year, with daily specials, as well as woodstone baked pizzas, always on offer.

Even in winter, the large townhouse windows make for a bright and airy dining experience in the bar area, while the courtyard comes to life in warmer times.

Doggy delights

Perfect for a post-walk pick me up, there are treats on offer for your four-legged friend, who can dine with you anywhere in the venue – the restaurant, bar area or garden.

By day

A short but sumptuous breakfast menu, including dishes such as buckwheat pancakes with berries and maple syrup, and smashed avocado and smoked salmon on toast, is available from 7am to 11am every day. For a sweet treat, afternoon tea is also served daily between 2pm to 5pm. Don’t forget to book you and fido in for one of their famous Sunday roasts too.

From dusk

There’s a different daily offer to choose from every day at York & Albany. To celebrate successfully navigating the start of the week, we love Monday’s sharing offer of a selection of small plates for two to share, including drinks, for £25. Tuesdays feature live music and an offer of two pizzas for £15.

The extra bits

It’s not just your dog who’ll enjoy this welcoming eatery, it is a great place to bring the children, with under 12s eating free from a set menu.

York & Albany

Rigby's Review

Townhouse tails

Sniffing our way (or Rigby at least!) past wonderful Regent’s Park, we were delighted to turn the corner and take in the grandeur of the townhouse that is home to Gordon Ramsay’s York & Albany.  With its regency magic casting a spell over all of us, Rigby strained to make his way over the crossing to great the patrons, of the human and hound variety, making the most of the outdoor terrace with its park-wards view. After much a do, with wags and tickles galore from many a welcoming hand, we persuaded Rigby that it really was time to head in for din dins.

We were greeted at the entrance by the extremely friendly maitre’d who was delighted to meet Rigby, and soon we were being offered our choice of seats. In the mood to relax, we plumped for a table with big cushiony wing back chairs and space for paws. With a view of the courtyard and my seat turning out to be the perfect height for Rigby to rest his chin on my knee whenever he thought a titbit or scratch may be in order, we had one contented pooch.

A bowl of water was swiftly delivered along with an ear scratch, much to Rigby’s delight. We then settled down to peruse the seasonal offerings, while Rigby settled down to take in his bubbly and cheerfully bustling surrounds.

Struggling to pick just one dish, we opted for starters to share, selecting the truffle arancini and salt and pepper squid with sweet chilli. Truly Italian, the arancini were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and more than enough to share, while we loved the heat of the salt and pepper squid.

We were soon on to our mains, with my dining companion opting for a choice from the restaurants grill. Corn-fed chicken breast, kale, an oh so smooth mash and i’m told a rather tasty jus, all complemented with a glass of the Soraie IGT Veneto Cecilia Beratte. Meanwhile, I selected the roast sea bream, park choi and samphire, with our waiters suggestion of the crushed new potatoes. With a true taste of the sea, it was just right with the fish skilfully cooked.

With more than our fill we couldn’t do justice to the deserts, so it was coffee’s all round while we people and pup watched. The restaurant is enticing, with smiling faces from walks in the park from the young to the less young, and from families to groups of friends, while the light airy surrounds and cheerful atmosphere are hard not succumb too.

With Rigby sensing movement was on the cards, a nose appeared on my knee for a scratch and gentle reminder that there were some corners of Regent’s Park that he could just do with popping back to. So we said of farewells to the friendly staff and headed back to the park.

With its fresh seasonal fair, regal regency surrounds and a welcoming vibe for humans and hounds, this is an alluring pawstop you’ll be sure to return too.

The York & Albany is hard to beat as a place to meet up with friends and their fido’s for lunch on a summers day after a walk in Regents Park. The food is excellent, the staff are very welcoming and it really is a very nice place to relax.

First time here one weekday evening with our little Quijote (Chihuahua) and one of the most welcoming places we have ever visited. Staff were fantastic.
We were well looked after and even offered a chair just for Quijote to be at the table with us 🙂 We will certainly be back very soon. Booking a must though as very busy.
The food is superb too.
Also a little tip that after 6pm it is free to park on the road next to Regent’s Park on the outer circle with plenty of spaces and close to the venue.
