The food is extremely good and well-presented. We had 2 vegetarians with us - and they also had a choice. And while this is a !"smart" restaurant it is also friendly.

Oswalds was a recommendation from our B&B hosts and we loved it. Although busy, it was quiet and relaxing. The food was excellent. I asked for the rack of lamb not to be too pink and it came absolutely cooked to perfection. The accompanying chips were home made and a million times better than any frozen specimen that you usually... More

We visit Yorkshire for the County show every year--thus we have visited this restaurant a significsant number of times. The Ambience was as usual very good. Food was good, though probably not as perfect as it has been in the past. Service was somewhat erratic, the main course was fairly quickl--but the sweet was not. After 20 minutes we queried... More

After reading the wonderful reviews we thought we were going to have a really nice meal in lovely surroundings with friendly staff but this was definitely not the case! The reception we received on our arrival at the restaurant and bar was non-existent, there was no smile, no hello, no eye contact. The food was only part delivered and not... More

We have eaten here a number of times, the food is absolutely gorgeous. The service is really warm and friendly,love the big sofas,especially with a large glass of red in your hand....the house merlot is really very good. It would be even better if there was music playing in the bar area :) The dining area is really pretty, however,... More

A lovely quiet spot only a 10 minute walk from Thirsk town centre. Bar area has very relaxing chairs & sofas and restaurant is nicely laid out with round tables. Staff are friendly and are more than willing to try and meet your needs. We stayed 2 nights on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis which we found was good... More

The restaurant and bar has a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. I ate on my own and felt comfortable to sit in the bar with a drink afterwards. The food was lovely, and the service friendly and helpful. One evening I was offered an alternative choice of sauces to go with the salmon I had ordered as I was unsure about... More

We used to live in Thirsk and have been to Oswalds on previous ocassions, the last time being around 7 years ago, I think. We were always impressed with the food there. We decided to try it again last weekend for my wife's birthday. The place still has a nice ambience and obviously attracts the affluent set of North Yorkshire,... More
