Lovely staff. Great ambience. Fabulous food. A pity that coffee for 4 cost almost £13. One cafetiere and 4 smallish cups. Food was very good value. Ridiculous price for coffee.

What a fantastic place to eat, just opposite York dungeon. A 3 course a la carte menu for £18.95. Was the best lamb in red wine sauce I have ever eaten. My husband had the duck and loved it. I think booking would be required on a weekend, we went on a Wednesday evening and tables were available. The atmosphere... More

We could not fault anything about the meal and the staff were really lovely and worked very hard as the... More

The restaurant had a pleasant relaxed atmosphere with courteous and attentive staff that worked well as a team. It was so refreshing to find a restaurant that truly catered for coeliacs; when a bread board was brought to the table prior to the meal a plate of gluten free bread was also provided. There was a good range of gluten... More

Visited the go down recently and had a lovely meal, you get complimentary bread (small loaf) with garlic & plain butter, we then had starters, main and a drink each and the bill came to £38, great value. this place could easily be missed so make sure you are aware of where it is.

Prompt service by well presented waitresses we all chose off the Early Bird Menu, less than twenty pounds per person for three courses. Good choices available on all three courses.The main course comes with potatoes and two vegetables plenty of everything certainly value for money... More
