A short and simple menu, and nothing wrong with that. Very nice food overall especially the confit of duck served with spinach and potatoes. My crispy pork starter wasn't crispy, tasted nice, and beautifully presented, but crispiness is hard to achieve and this didn't make it. The creme brûlée with chilli pineapple jam was masterful, a great pairing of smooth,... More

This was my worst dining experience ever. I would not go there again as we ended up in the basement with a ladies night out party. Very noisy and not pleasant. Good view of stacked chairs and kitchen, toilet doors though. Would have walked out if it wasn't for partner not wanting to make a fuss.

Homemade fishcakes, roast beef cooked medium rare. and homemade brownie all delicious. Service was great no name badge so not sure who served but very pleasant and efficient girl with... More

Our second visit to 31 Castlegate - as great as the first one! From the moment we arrived, the staff were all very friendly and attentive. A busy atmosphere, but not over the top. The menu was mouthwatering as the previous visit, and the food was as good it sounded. A fantastic evening, and I cannot wait to go back... More

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a meal after an afternoon in York. We were spoilt for choice as so many of the restaurants in York offer great 2-course menus for around £15. We decided on 31 Castlegate and were really happy with our choice. We were given a really warm welcome from the waitress on arrival... More

I visited this restaurant this week with my sister in law in the early evening as we were going on to the theatre. The food was lovely and well presented and the location very comfortable. We managed to book late in the day but I imagine it would be more difficult to do so in the busy tourist season and/or... More

Our guest house in York had a flyer for 31 Castlegate offering a 2 for 1 offer which "should be mentioned when booking or ordering." We arrived at the restaurant just after 8. The host was bit curt with us asking us "if we had booked?" No but there were only two other tables occupied in the upstairs room. He... More

We decided to try this restaurant having read the reviews on trip advisor. We walked in just after noon to find we were the only ones there which was a little worrying, but we were joined by a couple of larger family parties soon after. We the food to be of good quality, my daughter opted for the fishcakes and... More
