Excellentl!!!

Lovely lunch today in relaxing surroundings. One concern is that the menu has no details about allergies or intolerances. Furthermore the really pleasant waitress had no idea which dishes contained gluten and came back from the kitchen with only two choices. I opted for Cajun chicken which was... read more

A rainy Monday night in York and we discovered this little gem. Happy hour between 5-7pm, with some great specials for £5. I had the wildes chilli, huge serving, very tasty. Hubby had vege chilli burger and we shared a banoffee pie. Annie, the waitress/barmaid was very friendly and attentive.

Nice location and welcoming staff, but not much to choose between when it comes to wines. And no bubbles by glass was a disappointment, but the Marlborough saved my day!

Was in town for a few days and went to this little bar for an evening with a good friend. Food was delicious and in large portions. Beer chill and well kept and the location on a back Lane off the city centre was just amazing. The staff were friendly and very welcoming and there was a homely atmosphere to... More

At first I was shocked at the price of drinks - £4.60 or so for a pint of ordinary lager but then we spotted the happy hour menu (applies from 17:00 to 19:00 except Saturdays). My partner and I shared a starter, had two main meals and a litre carafe of very good house wine for under £30. And it... More

I have just been I'll and had very specific food requests. These were met with total thought for my wellbeing with the waitress and chef doing all they could to oblige. Thank you

We have eaten at Wildes on three separate occasions whilst visiting York, once as a couple, once with friends and most recently as a large family group. Each time has been magnificent! It is now my 'must visit' when I go to York. All of the people we have taken there are now as taken with it as us. I... More

Wildes is a small central bistro. It can be found down an alley (known as a Snickleway in York!)that links Grape Lane to the historic Stonegate. Situated over two floors (the small upstairs seating area has views of the rooftops and York Minster). It is simply decorated with no frills but this adds to its charm. Although the menu is... More

Named for the famous wit, novelist and playwright, Oscar Wilde, this cafè bar aims to provide the kind of atmosphere and surroundings which Wilde may have experienced in bohemian France in his last days. Downstairs is dark, cosy and decorated in Art Nouveau stained glass. Upstairs takes advantage of a skylight to provide an indoor version of Parisian street cafes.... More

Our hosts for the weekend decided to take us to Wildes for a drink on Sunday as a stop during our exploring of York. Not sure what to expect we were very pleasantly surprised at the quaint eatery / bar. The food served at the tables around us looked so good and scrumptious that our impromptu drink turned into an...
