Popped in for a quick snack at late lunchtime on Saturday. One of our fairly regular haunts when in York at a lunchtime and always turns up trumps. Always busy which is a good sign in itself, but generally able to find a table. Service food and price are all just fine for a city centre wine bar/restaurant. Well worth... More

Came here as a party of 12 or so in December with the purpose of fuelling up before an afternoon of festivities. We have come here for the last couple of years for this reason and it's always good. The food is the typical 90s wine bar food - Cajun chicken, nachos, burgers etc but it's tasty, you get enough... More

Went here purely by chance on a busy Saturday lunchtime. I must admit I didn't hold out too much hope to start with as it was obviously very busy and there didn't seem that many staff but I must admit to be pleasantly surprised. The food did take a while to appear but not too long and was very good.... More

Great tasty home cooked food. Been visiting for years now and have never been disappointed. Don't know what some people want who criticise a tiny, atmospheric pub like Wildes. It's not fast food, microwaved rubbish. It may take a tad longer, but if you want plastic food then go to a chain pub.

Really excellent find! Came here on a Sunday when it was fairly busy. The food was delicious, I ordered a hot sausage baguette and my boyfriend ordered the hot mexican - did not disappoint! The music was great and the decor inside is really quaint. The two blonde waitresses were so lovely and accommodating even though they were both rushing... More

Went 01/12/14 50 mins wait for three simple dishes whilst trying to entertain a 2yr old wasnt what i call a great experience. Add to that the place was only half full at best. Food was very very mediocre and not particually well executed both in cooking or flavour. I did detect a sense of open a jar on some... More

Popped in by chance whilst meeting up with family and friends during a shopping trip. Managed to get a table even though it was reasonably busy and during the time we were dining, there was a constant stream of people coming in. The food was good , served promptly with a smile, and overall the prices were reasonable. It is... More

We decided to try out the Swinegate, Grape Lane area of York where there are a plethora of very good eating establishments, wine bars and quality restaurants. We came across Wildes tucked in the corner of Grape Lane and decided to give it a try. We were pleased we did the food was very reasonably priced and of good quality... More

Friday lunch with my Mum. Awful weather. Never stopped raining. Had looked at their menu on line and thought the venue looked cosy. However it was very cold once inside, seating wasn't particularly inviting (a pew that was narrow to sit comfortably and wobbled) We chose the from the hot menu a beef Baguette which my Mum enjoyed. I opted... More
