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.
We are submitting this review almost three years after visiting your restaurant. Some could say that we cannot possibly reliably recall the quality of the experience or even remember what we've had for lunch back then. As it happens, we do. We have been to numerous restaurants since, both in London (where we live), elsewhere in the UK and abroad. The most recent is the visit at Feitoria in Lisbon which holds a Michelin star. Still, after all these years, every single time we have a fine dining experience, we end up concluding that they do not quite match the standard of Skosh. The mussels on a bed of pumpkin custard were utterly unforgettable. We have just realised how long it has been since our first visit and already started planning the next trip to York. We shall hopefully see you soon!
Excellent dining experience. Can't wait to go again.
Interesting food cooked well and excellently presented. Loved the tapas-style approach of multiple starters and then a couple of main courses. Front of house staff friendly and nothing was too much trouble. May you continue to grow and deliver even more exciting food.
A wonderful evening (Tue 20th Dec). A party of 4 "Amateur Foodies" who loved everything on the night and told you as much. The Octopus was the highlight, Hake 2nd - the rest very close behind. Now.....if only you could squeeze us in again on Fri 30th around 19:00!!!! Sean, 0789 115 2088.
We are devout foodies and had been dying to visit Skosh. The experience was fabulous. The food is absolutely divine, the service superb and the atmosphere had a real buzz about it. York is blessed with some of the best restaurants in the North but we now think that Skosh tops the list
Faultless. Great staff. Lovely venue. Wonderful imaginative food.
Food superb but meagre. Like eating a few canapes. Had to buy a pasty straight afterwards as I was so hungry!
Great food and service, will recommend.
Brilliant service atmosphere, service and food. Could not recommend Skosh enough. 10/10
Staff very attentive, and the food was amazing
Great food, great service in great surroundings
The immediate feel of Skosh is of relaxed efficient and welcoming. There were 4 of us. The menu is full of exciting ingredients - and the problem is what to choose. We chose a few plates to start and after tasting each - we then chose another few dishes! All different and all very interesting. We then chose some more - but repeated a few we really liked. Finally we had desserts and I've got to say the 'Bauble' was a work of art and unbelievable in taste. It was a memorable meal - one to savour but one to repeat in the New Year.
Best food in York by far. Only hope it lasts.
Delicious food and a great atmosphere. The staff were all really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Brilliant evening. The best meal we have had in York
Fantastic adventure :) I recommend it to everyone who is fond of unusual flavors.
Delicious food and a lovely friendly service.
Fabulous as always, the best in York. We look forward to sampling some more dishes on our next visit. You guys rock it!!! 5 stars all the way.
My 5th visit - loyalty card please!! Excellent food as always with wonderful combinations of flavours. This time with family and elderly parents - atmosphere is noisy but they coped mosty due t the great food, wine and service!
Nice atmosphere, good service and very helpful staff.
Excellent restaurant. Not been to one better. Hope to return.
We had 9 meals in total, the cold dishes were strange and I probably wouldn't have them again. The warm meals were lovely but needed to be a little bigger or cheaper. I liked the concept and the way they were served. A little slower would be better.
Wonderful evening. The wine list was fairly limited but the 3 wines we had were excellent (good sourcing!). Flavours of food and variety were superb. Service was polite, friendly and professional. Great value and we will be back to see my (ex) Leeds fan chef owner. Well done.
Absolutely delicious. Attentative service and relaxing surroundings. Will be back!
Stunning guys as usual - well done!!!!
