Return trip as good as ever

Had to visit again as last one was so good. Very busy as it was a race day and buzzing atmosphere. You really cant go wrong with the jugs of cocktails, the long island ice teas are very potent and we only managed two all evening so ended up a fairly cheap evening in the end. Always good and well... read more

We didn't book so there was a 45 min wait but this was fine as we could enjoy some cocktails in the very nice bar area. The main dinning area was a little full (you could also sit outside under heaters if you wanted) but didn't feel too packed. Wine range of choice for food and wine which was both... More

Visited with sister, who has been several times and always happy with the food. The cocktails are good, and good value at £5ish. We ordered a pasta and chicken skewer meal with garlic bread. Not expensive and tasty. The big plus is the atmosphere and outside dining. They have created a real Mediterranean feel with heaters and optional blankets, although... More

We travelled to York to have a reunion dinner and drinks with former work colleagues. We arrived at this restaurant only to find it very full due to it being race day in York. We were taken to the bar to have a drink whilst a table became available. We didn't have to wait long before a table was available... More

Thank you David for your review, We can't apologise enough for the unfortunate pigeon situation. We do have spikes in place to discourage any birds from being able to reach this point but will certainly be investigating this further to ensure this does not happen again. We thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are pleased to enjoyed... More

Very busy restaurant with really nice atmosphere. Good service at bar so didn't mind waiting for our table at all. Meals were good and everyone enjoyed. Cocktails we ordered were good. Table service maybe could have been slightly more attentive and this is only reason 4 rather than 5. Would definitely go back.

Called on a busy saturday evening and were lucky enough to get a table outside straight away.Heaters turned on and blankets available if needed, why would you want to be indoors. The pasta was delicious, fusilli norma, totally recommend it although the belly pork looked great to
