5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We went for a birthday occasion and they went out of their way to make it special for us. The food is second to none and the service was phenomenal. Would recommend it to anyone.

“Lovely food and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We had the three-course set dinner menu. With a bottle of wine it came to less than three courses and two beers at Loch Fyne. Lovely food, beautifully cooked and pleasant staff. Very good atmosphere, right in the heart of York.

“Great Lunch - Great Service - Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Called for the first time today, after reading some previous reviews, and had a two course lunch.
The Beef Stroganoff was very nice indeed followed by Rice pudding with Plum and very tasty it was too.
The place filled up nicely which created a nice lunchtime atmosphere.

My wife and I will definitely visit again when next in York.

“My kind of food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We tried to eat here on our wedding anniversary in 2011, but it was fully booked, so last year we booked a table and had a great meal. We returned again this year, and again enjoyed our evening. There is a set menu or an A la carte, but they allowed me to pick one course from each! The food is tasty and well executed without being pretentious, and the quaint surroundings in the front dinning area add to the experience.
Give it a go, but make sure you reserve a table!
