We had a special lunch here and was one of the best meals we have ever had. The food was extra special with so much care being taken on presentation and every element of what was being served. Every bit of the experience was thoroughly enjoyable and worth every penny! Well worth a visit but make sure you book in... More

Always wanted to go for a meal here and now I have i will be going again. It isn't cheap but it's well worth the price. I couldn't fault it. The food and the service was excellent. Lovely canapés to start and home made bread. Had the pigeon and then venison. Both were cooked perfect. The peppermint tea parfait tasted... More

Five of us ate here on very cold damp night in February. We arrived quite early so initially we had the place to ourselves and this meant we could avail of the reasonably priced early bird menu. The waitress noticed that I was cold and immediately put on an extra heater and arranged warm tasty amuse bouches. This set the... More

We had the tasting menu , £45 for 5 courses, all of which was very good - venison was excellent. We also had the wine flight, £25 for 5 glasses, which was very well explained with each food course. All in all, a very nice venue, excellent service, so an enjoyable night.

My husband and I have just had the most amazing lunch at Meltons. Every course was truly scrumptious with some lovely extras thrown into the mix like a delicious amuse Bouche of celariac soup and warm bread plus free coffee and petit fours. The service was efficient and friendly creating a lovely atmosphere. I loved the fact that the set... More

We had a meal for 4 on a weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Limited vegetarian options on the menu but no doubt they will do something on request. The huge selection of wine was very impressive. The service was swift and courteous and the only downside was a rowdy table near us - too... More

We visited on a Saturday evening. The scallop starter was very good and the venison and hake entrees were excellent. Service was very attentive as well. I would highly recommend!

Melton's is a stunningly beautiful restaurant. We were greeted by its friendly staff. The restaurant is relaxed with a beautiful ambience. It is outside central York so tucked away from the hustle, bustle of the city. We chose the Pigeon Wellington & Beetroot for starters both of which were gorgeous & full of flavour, but before they were brought out... More
