We pre-booked as a group of 10 for August Bank Holiday weekend on the Sunday evening, and were given a nice location separate from the rest of the main restaurant (which looked very empty). However, we'd specifically reserved so we could have some steak and were left very disappointed by the experience. It took three attempts to order, because they... More

We happened upon this delightful Wine Bar after rambling through the Shambles and poking around the many little laneways in Old York. Warmly welcomed with beaming smiles, we were seated and served tasty ales. We happily negotiated a platter of grazing meze to wile away a relaxing respite from our footslogging and sight-seeing. The whole experience was enthralling. It was... More

Found this little bar / restaurant by accident. Was just really look for a place to sit down for a pint when we stumble upon a small alley with tables and chairs. Sat on the first table available and it turned out to be one of the better places where we got a really decent dinner for a penny. Well,... More

Stumbled upon this place by chance and how glad we were that we did. Service was attentive and efficient on a busy Friday night. The house red wine was exceptionally good, in both taste & price, as was the food which was served promptly in a very relaxed & pleasant Bistro setting. We particuluarly enjoyed the chocolate cake as a... More

Great simple food with a selection of nice side orders. Friendly service and good location. Needs to develop menu and decor to improve the quality of food on offer and the atmosphere! Given some time and investment this could be a great place.

We have dined here many times and the food is first class. The service is normally fine but this time was different. When we arrived we asked for a table for six and were told there are two in the back (area of the restaurant), so we led ourselves to the table of our choice. Eventually we were brought menus...
