Just lovely!

My boyfriend and I went to York with his little one in tow on Sunday, and he sought out this restaurant on purpose for late lunch/early dinner before we went home - he's been before and it was highly recommended to him in the first place by some local friends.

We stopped for a quick lunch on Saturday. The place tries to look like a French-style bistro and the premises are decorated accordingly. But food is very much of the boring British variety and the wine list is also rather uninspiring. This is again ok if you are into burgers with tons of chips which is, however, not what we... More

Nic atmosphere, food was good and service was friendly and quick. Portions weren't huge but good enough if you are wanting to leave some space for some drinks - which we were! Reasonably priced

Came here on our son's recommendation. Very bijou. Loved the atmosphere and music, ranging from Jake Bugg to Nina Simone.

We popped in for lunch on a Sunday lunchtime. I had the prawn baguette & my partner had the hot roast beef baguette... All pleasant enough but nothing special! The above plus a pint of coke & a cranberry juice £18.50, great service though :)

Granted we were a large party [16, however pre-booked] but the experience started badly and progressively got worse. We arrived at 8.30pm on a Saturday evening and there was only one bottle of Prosecco in the building but that wasn't chilled! Meal was ordered [but not from the specials as they weren't up to date and only 5 rump steaks... More

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.
