York’s New Year’s Eve Ball 2023

The Grand Assembly Rooms, Blake St, York YO1 8QG

The one and only place to be this New Years Eve is York’s Grand Assembly Rooms for York’s New Year’s Eve Ball.

With an evening reminiscent of Gregorian elegance, delectable food, and variety of wines, we promise a night you will never forget.  The New Year’s Eve Ball 2023 is brought to you by the same team who delivered the sell out ‘Coronation Ball’.


The Whippet Inn

15 North St, York YO1 6JD

The Whippet Inn is a steak and alehouse with a fine line in seafood too.  It’s a bit of a hidden gem, tucked away as it is on North Street, but once you have been you will return.  Lovely, friendly staff look after you in a comfortable and relaxed environment with a stylish and quirky decor.  The food is fresh,  imaginative and great quality.

Why not spend your New Year’s Eve at The Whippet Inn restaurant with our cracking 5 course menu

How about dinner out followed by a few drinks for NYE in York?  

Say farewell to 2023 in the best possible way at The Dormouse – surrounded by those you love the most as you raise a glass (or fork) to new beginnings.

To make sure 2024 is the year you deserve, you need to end 2023 as you mean to go on… That means taking a seat at your countryside local with friends, family, and a sensational selection of the finest seasonal dishes and drinks!

Your only New Year’s resolution should be making sure you treat yourself to something delicious from our Festive Menu, including our beloved Sunday roasts, or save yourself for the main event: our NYE Evening Menu, available from 7pm onwards*.

Then, as the countdown begins, make sure you’ve got your favourite tipple nearby to raise a glass to a better, brighter year – with plenty of our country charm, of course.
