This is the best restaurant in York everything about it is excellent the staff the service and especially the food. The owners have worked extremely hard over the years to maintain such a high standard. We have been going to this restaurant for the last 17 years and would highly recommend it.

We were a group of 30 having our christmas lunch and the staff and kitchen were so helpful and accommodating - they were very understanding of some last minute cancellations and even packaged up a whole 3 course meal to to take away for someone who couldn't make it. Throughout the meal the staff were so polite, the atmosphere was... More

We went here for a team Christmas meal before going on for drinks in York. You could walk past the place not knowing it is there but you would be missing a little gem. We had preselected from a set Christmas menu but was like the food your mum would make - great! We were a large group and the... More

Lovely greeting on arrival, taking our coats and seating us. Top class service and my starter black pudding with sauce and crispy bacon was delicous. My main course salmon with a sweet Teryiaki topping was divine served with the wonderful assortment of vegetables including tasty red cabbage. For dessert I had creme brulee and finished off with seasonal mini mince... More

My Fiance and I dined here on Saturday night after a day in York. Although I had booked the table for 7.00pm, we were ready to eat by 6.30pm so called in early on the off chance they could fit us in. Luckily our table was ready and waiting and we were able to dine. The staff were extremely welcoming... More

We were served quickly but the menu's we were given, which were laminated, were grubby and quite greasy which was more than a little off putting. In fact, we... More
