lovely way to spend a summer evening.s

We spent last Thursday evening dining once again in the lovely restaurant. As previously the food was excellent, service with a smile and relaxing atmosphere. Who could ask for more?

Ate lunch here with my Mum. Despite the restaurant being quiet when we arrived we were seated by the door which leads down to the toilets, a very poor choice & a table to be avoided at all costs. Our order was taken quickly, the food arrived promptly & the portion sizes were good. However my burger had the bacon... More

Despite a late enquiry we managed to book a table. Service was friendly and helpful and the food just great. Despite one of us having the set meal and the other had a la carte there was no problem and both meals were equal in terms of quality and quantity.....Really enjoyed our evening, thank you.

Decided to eat here as we walked past and thought the menu looked resonably priced. We were seated promptly by a friendly waitress, food and drinks were delivered quickly. Choice of a 3 course set menu which is great value or you can order individually priced dishes from the menu which has a good choice. Lunch was very nice, had... More

Visited here with 3 other friends, I had a very nice cauliflower soup as a starter and a dreadfully tough and inconsistently cooked piece of chicken, that was still uncooked in the very centre. I didn't finish the meal. A friend had sea bass, which he thoroughly enjoyed and two others had risotto, which they felt was extremely bland and... More

If you enjoy good food, excellent service in relaxed and peaceful surroundings then you really must visit this restaurant. Its an unassuming place from the outside and could be easy to miss. Whilst sill within the City Wall Its on the outer edge but its well worth the short stroll from the City centre

Wife and I stopped over for dinner ... bumped into this place by chance. Had the set menu... mushroom tart was superb. Belly pork was well seasoned. This was followed by lamb and seabass... shared an apple crumble. .. thoroughly enjoyed the food ..

Visited here after a day at the races as it was close by our hotel. All the food we had was delicious, potted rabbit and mixed platter starters and lamb rump and venison mains. Staff were friendly and service was efficient. My only complaint would be the chicken on my husbands platter starter still had quite a lot of the... More

Visited 31 Castlegate with a group of 20 colleagues, including many from out of York. We had the 3 course set menu which was very good value with 3 or 4 fairly standard but nice sounding choices per course. The courses all arrived promptly, hot and well presented. Portion size was just right. Personally I really enjoyed the garlic mushroom... More
