About Bedern Hall

Since the 14th  Century, Bedern Hall has been a place for people to come together. As you admire the medieval timber framing, you’ll dine, meet or celebrate in what was originally the refectory of the Vicars Choral, singers at nearby York Minster.

Nestled in the centre of the ancient city, Bedern Hall is the perfect location for a gathering. We continue our history of hospitality by producing food of the highest quality with ingredients from our very own garden. Our resident chefs craft every dish with care.

The Grade II listed building is full of charming features guaranteed to make any occasion special. From our York stone floor to our soaring beamed roof space, Bedern is a memorable place for weddings, meetings or dinners with loved ones.  All the while, we have the modern facilities needed to make your visit comfortable.
