Description: A small sandwich shop with a big reputation. Everything is made from scatch, on site, to our own recipes. We only have 8 seats but have a very quick turnaround and all our food is available to takeaway. Our specialty is our succulent Pulled Pork sandwich and Shambles Reuben. The meats are smoked overnight, rested for 1 hour and served quick-sharp to avoid drying out. Come between 11am and 3pm to avoid missing out on it.

We both had the pulled pork sandwich and loved every bite! A bit messy but it's definitely worth the mess. If we're ever back in York we will be revisiting this place for sure.

Thanks Jess. It's pretty hard to keep all the slaw and pork where it should be. It's either a knife and fork job. Or just get involved in it. I go for getting stuck in too. :)

The pulled pork in this place was very tasty! We decided to go to the Kitchen as someone had recommended it to us and we weren't disappointed. If your going to go down the Shambles, defiantly pop into the Kitchen and grab yourself a pulled pork sandwich!

Had the cajun halloumi wrap which was lovely. Nice and spicy with something a bit different in each mouthful. Also had the berry smoothie which gave me brain freeze, but that was entirely my own fault for necking it too quickly. I intend to work my way through the list of smoothies and juices over the next few months and will try the soup next time too.

Thanks for the lovely review. We have some new drinks on the menu next week - including pineapple & coconut smoothie. You can always make your recipe too.

This is such a popular little place and we thoroughly enjoyed lunch here during our weekend trip to York. It's very busy so seating is at a premium during peak times. Pulled pork buns are delicious as was the smoothie we had with them. Simple but very tasty and moreish. Staff were quite welcoming too. Might like to see a few more choices on the menu though. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

I have visited here before and really felt the need to go back due to the food and drinks served. The location within the Shambles is ideal and the service is very good, allowing you to taste the soups and pork to help you to make a choice. Although there are harldy any tables here (to be expected within the Shambles), it is clearly all about the quality of the food, which is top notch. I had heard so much about the slow cooked pulled pork sandwiches from other reviewers on this site and just had to choose this for a late lunch. The pork was to die for and was cooked perfectly. The dressing and coleslaw that was added just added to the great flavour. It is quite rare for a place to get taste combinations perfect, but this place managed it. The choice of smoothies was also great and chose one with strawberry, pineapple, melon and cranberry juice. I will definitely come back here as it had some of the best tastes from my year to date. At all costs make a visit to here.......
The only slight drawback was the cajun halloumi sandwich that my girlfriend chose hardly had any halloumi within it

Thanks a million. The Pulled Pork is getting even better too. We've got brioche buns now. Thanks for the heads up on the halloumi, it should be just the right amount for halloumi lovers, without making the wrap too heavy. Joe the wrapmaster is on it. :-)
