Top Quality fare, at a reasonable price. We will go back again they do a fixed price menu which is superb, Good quality service. I would recommend that you book up in advance, we tend to go just as it opens when we have not booked. The place fills up quick as you can imagine. Lovely interior. No dislikes.

Delicious food, friendly staff, warm atmosphere. What more can I say? Its truly one of the most underrated restaurants in York, with the most scrumptious desserts! My one and only complaint is that due to where the counter is in the restaurant its slightly hard to catch the attention of the staff if you need something in particular, during courses,... More

As usual, another well cooked and presented meal from this restaurant's a la carte menu. A crab and apple tian was a clean and refreshing starter on a summer's evening - and probably a better choice than my pork dish which nevertheless was good as well - and the mains of two steaks, one a medium rib-eye and the other...

We went here on a recent stay in York. The food was really good. It was fairly expensive for two, with the bill being £109 although that did include 2 bottles of wine. (oops) The décor is ready for a make over which is why I only rated it 'very good' - on the food alone it would have been... More

I took my boyfriend for his birthday last night, we ate from the al'carte menu and OH MY GOD it was delicious. Every mouthful was divine, washed down with a very nice Rose champagne!! You must visit here, you won't regret it :)

We took pot luck on 31 Castlegate for lunch, never having been to the restaurant before. We were in the area and just popped in - we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, and the service was good. Main courses are about £11 each. The restaurant is just outside the York Museum, and can be recommended.

One of our regular restaurants when visiting family in York. Very good food and excellent value, not to mention the attentive but not over powering service. Very comfortable atmosphere and good choice of wine. If you are in York and looking for a great meal, this is one of the top spots.
