Considering the high quality of the meals served here you would expect on a special fixed price menu to see some corners cut! Not so here I don't really know how they can turn out such value for the money. We would still have been delighted had we paid full price. Very well done.

Staying in York for a theatre weekend as a post-Christmas treat we wanted somewhere really good to eat, and we certainly found it here at 31 Castlegate. We were very early arriving, but it posed no problem for the manager who welcomed us to sit and enjoy a drink whilst he continued to set up (other staff hadn't yet arrived!).... More

Heard some people talking outside saying how lovely it was and thought that I would go in and see if a table was available. Certainly not disappointed. Staff were friendly and welcoming the food was delicious and obviously cooked fresh. Good wine choices and gorgeous pudding! Well worth a visit.

My boyfriend brought me to York for the weekend as a birthday surprise. It was a Saturday night and everywhere was full. We walked round the city centre and stumbled upon this amazing restaurant - so glad all the other restaurants were full! Food was absolutely amazing, I had the 3 course menu deal which was absolutely fantastic. Was great... More

My Husband, my parents and I attended 31 Castlegate on Saturday 3rd January to celebrate my Husband's Birthday. We had been before and were looking forward to the meal and, once again, were delighted with the food, service and whole experience. The choice of food was vast and there was plenty of lovely flavours. Portion sizes were great. We had... More

We wanted a really nice restaurant for our pre-Christmas Christmas lunch and Castlegate was perfect. Lovely service and really good food with some great individual touches. Restaurant small and quiet too, we shall certainly go again.

Great food, friendly and professional staff and an intimate but vibrant atmosphere made our New Years dinner an absolute pleasure. We have visited four times now and will be back again. Other restaurants could learn a few lessons from this place.

Another return visit and it was just as good as ever. Great ambience, fantastic food and service at a reasonable price. Special mention of the prawns in Bloody Mary sauce - amongst the best starters I have had. If visiting York, this is a dining must.

This restaurant is staffed by very friendly and helpful staff. Being coeliac, we asked for help with diet and a menu with wheat free options was quickly available! The food was excellent, tasty and nicely served. The risotto was perfect and the venison dish presented with several different styles of being cooked. Washed down well with the house Chilean Merlot... More
