The National Trust has closed its café in Goodramgate, in York.

A spokesperson said: “In the last three years the café has undergone refurbishment and investment to try and improve its success; however this has been to no avail.

“The decision to close comes after a period of consultation with staff to seek alternative options, but with none forthcoming, sadly we have taken the decision to close.

“We have been very grateful to our customers and York businesses for their support over the years.

“Our catering focus in the city will now concentrate fully on the Treasurer’s House tearoom, only 200 yards from the York café, which reopens for a new season on February 16.”

The National Trust shop in Goodramgate is unaffected by the closure of the café and will remain open as usual all year round.
