An amazing delicatessen serving a massive range of hot and cold sandwiches, in addition to breakfast rolls. Quality is extremely high and the sandwiches are great value for money. A friendly welcome! A regular stopping point whenever I am in York.

Many wonderful products available here to take away or eat in. A distinctive and personal range of delicacies and delights. Somewhere to go to treat yourself.

Living nearby we often get sandwiches from Mairs and they are truly amazing, packed to the rafters with fillings and the cakes are pretty yummy too! Personally I have never had a problem with the service and found the owners very helpful and friendly but I do know several people who have been given short thrift for asking questions that... More

I occasionally visit this deli as a treat. The food is generally good, certainly better than I could do, or be bothered to do at home, but is vastly over priced. Dont expect much change from a fiver for a sarnie

This used to be my local deli when I lived in York and I absolutely loved the food there. I now live in Manchester but was passing York (!) today and couldn't resist its draw, which speaks volumes about the place. Ingredients are great and the sandwich possibilities are almost literally endless. The service is great and the owners are... More

Almost don't want to review Mairs, as it's my local cafe and busy enough already!! Loads of choice (and I'm a vegetarian, even more if you eat meat and fish), incredibly popular with the locals (always busy), huge portions, interesting specials (today my friends got onion bahji, bacon, egg, mozzarella and chilli chutney sandwiches!), kid friendly and reasonable prices. Don't... More

You cannot knock the food here, but the service has always left a bit to be desired. Cages should never leave a customer feeling like they are a nuisance but this has been a common complaint from both myself and a number of people I know. It's a shame as they have a captive audience, but they need to take... More

I love Mairs, and wish we lived closer. But then I'd be broke and enormous, so perhaps it's for the best. Massive variety of top-quality foods. My fave sandwich is the New Yorker (pastrami, roast beef, cheese, pickles, etc), but today all I got was a chicken salad sandwich and even this was completely delicious. Only complaint is that there's... More
