My wife and I had lunch here and it was great. We both had a different veggie ciabatta and they were delish!! The Yorkshire gin was also not to be sniffed at! Highly recommended.

Stumbled upon Victor J's whilst trawling York's myriad back streets in the vain hope of finding somewhere that served my favourite tipple and, as the board outside mentioned Belgian beers, we popped in to see what they had. Lo and behold, the wonderful sight of...More
