The food has always been mediocre here at Wilde's, but nonetheless a group of us kept returning as we had plenty of space to catch up, and the happy hour deals meant made it more palatable. Unfortunately after our last visit, we will not be returning. The pasta in the lasagne was almost mush, slabs of cheese carelessly plonked on... More

My husband and I have been to Wildes many times over the years- used to live in a little flat round the corner. We still visit now as often as we can for wine and nachos (or IPA for my husband) and like to sit out the back if the sun is shining. The nachos are amazing- piled high with... More

Food wise we found this place OK not brilliant but adequate but sadly that is all I can say that was reasonable about Wilde's, the service levels were atrocious with only one member of staff trying to do a sterling job as bar keeper, waiter (running up a flight of steps to get food),order taker and table cleaner, this resulted...

My wife and I were srarching for a snack and came across Wildes. A lovely atmosphere with great staff. We took advantage of the sandwich deal and had two of the best presented sandwiches we have ever had along with a drink each for just over a tenner. My ham and cheese was just enough to fill the gap until... More

Goats cheese and caramelised onion tart was huge and the accompanying salad delicious. The chips, well cooked and plentiful. Best tart I have ever had. My friend had a prawn salad that filled the plate, with lovely soft brown bread. Place was busy Saturday around 5.30) and somewhat noisy, our usual spot upstairs was taken so moved towards the back... More

Although we were informed that there would a half-hour wait we thought it would be worth waiting. Unfortunately, we were disappointed with the quality of the burgers. The plates were cold as were the burger buns (which also disintegrated). We've previously had good food here which made this visit all the more disappointing.

Went in here to have a quick glass of wine. Seemed nice atmosphere and ordered a cabernet sauvignon and riesling: ch ching...£10 please. When my wife tried the riesling she likened it to a cheap lambrusco...she asked for a prosecco instead and got charged again and then the barman took the original drink away. Welcome to York! RIP OFF

Called in one tea time, and had the special they do there. The food was nice, and the staff were polite and helpful. If you fancy a cheap tea time meal, this could be the place. I'd recommend .
