We travelled to York to try The York Roast Co. After spending a small fortune, we were left feeling completely and utterly ripped off! A few scabby bits of frozen veg, scraps of beef, was dry as toast and had to ask for more gravy...(at an additional cost), frozen Yorkshire pudding where the end was missing and frozen roasties disappointing! I will never go there again! Overpriced and overrated! Waste of money!More

Delicious food, good prices, and fast service. Perfect for a lunch stop while seeing York. The ham in my sandwich was delicious :)

Yorkshire pudding, potatoes and veg are home cooked but straight out of a bag! Ordered two beef puddings to eat in and were served pork. Could not be bothered to go back downstairs to change it. Staff seemed dis-interested whilst serving us and the way...they handled the food was very sloppy.More

Yeah, instead of being on the hoof enjoy a hot roast sandwich at a table, basic but the food is good.

I visited the York roast and co on the 15th of July with my friends.I had heard about the place from the youtube channel Rate My Takeaway.I was Immediately greeted by friendly staff when I walked in.My friends and I were thoroughly impressed with the...overall feel of the place.The York roast and co was well decorated with fantastic pictures and was painted in a gorgeous black which made the whole building stand out. There were a selection of comfortable seats and large tables which catered to large and small groups of people.I ordered a Yorkshire pudding wrap which was absolutely mouth watering. I would recommend getting the apple sauce with the wrap as it really brings out the flavour of the wrap.Overall, I would recommend the York roast an co to anyone visiting York.More

We arrived tired at the end of the day... and had NEVER had Yorkshire Pudding before. We tried two mini's with pork. Very delicious. The staff offered helpful suggestions.

I don’t know how to even describe the pure excitement of this place. The food is just amazing, the staff were so friendly and welcoming! Would recommend getting the cracking for £3, it’s so good and it’s genuine crackling not like the packet ones you...get. We wished we could’ve come back for every possible meal and snack but we only had a short stay here, would definitely come back!More

A little bit of a gimmick, but entirely delicious and a great little lunch. I've often thought that the sandwich format could do with a bit of a shakeup and here was a fun alternative to what was on offer at other cafes.

I dunno, are we Americans just easy to please? I don’t understand many of the grinch review, not our experience at all. We ordered and got a generously-sized meat and vegetables meal served in a crust/bowl, great presentation. Hot and big chunks of potato, copious...gravy, well cooked green (but still bright green and Al dente) beans and carrots complimented my beef, which had some nice crust. Husband’s pork was also succulent and juicy. So much I couldn’t finish all of the crust bowl. Served with a horseradish sauce dumped in the corner so you can dip as you please. Total- £16.75, less than many pubs for less food.More

Got a veggie roast meal. Felt very expensive for what you got, the Yorkshire pudding was large but there was a lot of empty space on it! Veggies were very overdone and didn’t taste of much, potatoes were very floury. Had to as for some...more gravy, and wasn’t offered a sauce. When I asked as he was boxing it up, if it came with a sauce. He said he wasn’t sure (it said it did on the board). The upstairs seating area was quite dirty and very very warm (it’s only April!) the way it was served with meat everywhere and no wiping in the time we were in the queue did not inspire me with confidence it was clean!More

Very average for a quick eat. The portions are small for what they charge but the idea of the Yorkshire pudding as the wrapping is fun. A bit more flavor could be added i think.More

After seeing the meats on display and the gorgeous smell we couldn’t resist but to have dinner here. The que went down pretty quick, we had full wraps at a price of £8.50 each. I had pork , the mrs had turkey. Portions are no...way big enough, think I had 3 chunks of pork, service was sloppy, no care was taken in placing in box, handed over with gravy and apple sauce all over it. Went upstairs into a very cramped seating area and had to get another chair as legs were wobbly, finally got eating but again disappointed as the food was cold. Tried it, won’t be returning.More

I lived in York 92-97 as a student then working, I took my current girl to places I loved, the Hansom Cab is much the same but Dave's hog roast was the place I always went to eat in town, more often when I worked...in the centre. I always took girls I dated for lunch their to see if they jibbed when faced with a really good sandwich eaten on a bench outside a toy shop. I didn't even try to order as everything looked uninviting as did the sour-faced staff. We went to an italian I remembered and that was still good. Don't bother,More

There was a small line when we arrived at lunch time, but the staff did a good job to get people served in the right amount of time. We ordered a pork and beef wrap. Portions were a bit small for price paid, taste was...as expected for a quick option. Location is very convenient if you are visiting the city centre and want something fast.More
