DAVID HANCOCK – A STILL LIFE
This solo exhibition by the acclaimed Manchester based artist David Hancock features the artist’s latest body of work, in which he renders miniature, staged tableaux in a hyper-realistic style in an attempt, as he puts it, ‘to make palpable the psychological gap between the world that we physically experience and the psychological states through which it is apprehended’.
This week’s lunchtime menu comprises:
Soup of the day
Broad bean and barberry kuku with dill and mint
Sweet potato chips dusted with paprika, polenta and sumac
A vibrant beetroot hummus
Available from noon – to book a table call Robert on 07766 656030
Our popular long table candlelit Supper Clubs continue this year on Friday 22 February and Friday 22 March.
Tickets are £30 to include a welcome cocktail and three courses – contact Robert to book (07766 656030).
16RPM is the new driving force behind the School House Gallery that celebrates the importance of slowing down and paying attention, applying the philosophy of the slow movement to all that the gallery offers. With a fresh team in the kitchen and a raft of upcoming guest chefs, 16RPM presents a daily lunchtime menu that is innovatively vegetarian, often Mediterranean and always delicious.
16RPM commissioned two new ceramics collections by Jo Davies (London) and Makiko Hastings (Harrogate) and these exclusive, beautiful sets of functional tableware can now be enjoyed (and bought!) in the cafe. Jo Davis has created a sumptuous white, hand thrown porcelain tea set with a gold lustre twist, whilst Makiko Hastings’ thrown stoneware is beautifully contained with an understated pureness of colour and form. Both sets are available to be enjoyed in the cafe as well as to buy.

‘Thank you so much for making our [birthday] celebration so memorable for our friends – and for us too. The menu attracted much approval and everyone enjoyed the food; the wine was excellent, the mocktail delightful. The gallery is a charming intimate space, perfect for our group of forty. Its setting under the city walls, in a beautiful garden beside one of York’s medieval guildhalls is delightful. Please thank all your also-charming and very discreet young helpers who made everything go so smoothly.’
