Dining at the York Harbor Inn is truly a special experience. Chef Gerald Bonsey, CEC, AAC, has been at the heart of our kitchens for over 30 years. Choose to dine upstairs in our "1637" Restaurant" with fantastic ocean views, historic, intimate dining rooms, and a lively Tavern Bar and Tap Room (often with live entertainment) all centered around a large fieldstone fireplace, or go "down below" to the SHIP'S CELLAR PUB. The Pub offers a "one of a kind" atmosphere with its décor and construction and LIVE ENTERTAINMENT on many nights. The very popular Pub is designed to replicate the extravagant "down-below" quarters of the large Newport sailing vessels that once graced the waters off the shores of Newport, RI. A "brightwork" of mahogany, cherry, holly and teak surround you with warm, rich tones and fine details that are reminiscent of the great boatbuilding heritage of New England. Our newest addition to our family of Inns is the Chapman Cottage, a 7 room Luxury Inn featuring The Tavern Restaurant and Deck. Small plates with big flavors is the theme of The Tavern at Chapman Cottage featuring fireside dining and outside dining on an expansive deck.
Our extensive MENU is served both upstairs and down and has been recognized by many publications including Food & Wine Magazine, Gourmet, Taste and Country Living. Menu items include creative New American Cuisine, Classical favorites, and an extensive offering of Bistro style preparations from simple to complex. Always featured on the menu is fresh native New England Seafood in traditional and creative preparations. Full bar service is offered in both restaurants as well as a large yet discriminating wine list.
