Bistro Guy swears Christmas at The Hut York and The Island

a chef who closed his Restaurant Mobile is once again making a resolution this Christmas to move to York City Center after ten years.

Guy Whoples of Bistro Guy, who moved out of his Gilligate restaurant in July last year, says that throughout December this year he will donate £1 for every pizza sold to be split between two York charities: mental health charities The Hut York and Dan Island for the City’s Children.

Guy and his sister, Emma, ​​currently take their wood-fired pizza trailer to locations north, south, east and west of York.

He has said he decided to pledge again this year after successfully supporting SASH and York Mind with a £625 donation last year, which was split equally between the two charities.

This year they have a range of special festive Christmas-themed pizzas to entice diners with, offering both savory and sweet pizzas.

Emma said: “We would like to personally thank everyone who has supported us this year and continues to support us.

“Not only customers but also suppliers, work colleagues, friends, family and neighbours.

“Like any independent business we have had our fair share of ups and downs, but it is always a team effort to get through each day, month and year.

“We take care of private bookings, weddings, parties, corporate catering along with serving villages monthly.

“We have some mobile converted horse boxes and there is also a drink tuk tuk that serves lagers and prosecco on tap.”

As The Press reported at the time, Guy ran Bistro Guy for 40 years, ten years in Gilligette, then closed the business last summer to take the road.

He said that at the time the rent contract expired in March and felt it was not the right time to enter into another long rent contract.

He added: “I’d be lying if we said it hasn’t been a roller coaster ride for the past ten years, that put music Nights, theme nights, and bistro nights range from Japanese fusion taster evenings to wood-fired pizza and craft beer nights.

“I have really enjoyed meeting the many wonderful people who have supported Bistro Guy, many of whom have become regulars and friends.

“Many thanks to everyone who has visited Bistro Guy over the years and supported us because without your support there would be no business and over the years so many young people would have been employed.”

Throughout the lockdown, the restaurant, which perched on the city walls, was serving wood-fired pizzas on Friday and Saturday nights for collection.
