Well thank you to the person who had the audacity to give Edgar House in Chester a poor review, it always pays to have a nosey where else the reviewer has been and that is exactly how we dropped on Melton’s so a big thank you even though he couldn’t be further from the truth, Edgar House is simply stunning,...

We always eat at Melton's and it is always amazing. We had planned to eat in the elegant upstairs dining room, but on being advisded that we would be eating alone, the staff had thoughfully provided a table in the bistro as a backup. Having still not recovered from Oxo experience we went light on the booze, and started with... More

The imaginative tasting menu was one of the best we have experienced. Perfectly balanced flavours and satisfying portion sizes so we left sated not bloated. Modest exterior belies a warm atmosphere inside where our charity trustees and donors relaxed and all enjoyed gorgeous food professionally served and presented without any of the pretentiousness often associated with this level of lovely...

Lovely meal at this beautiful little restaurant just outside of York city centre. The food was beautiful - including the lovely little touches like the amuse bouchée and the coffee accompaniments. The wine was very reasonably priced - mostly in the £25 - £35 for a great bottle. What really made it was the friendly but not over the top... More

We were looking for somewhere special to eat with friends visiting us here in York and Meltons did us proud. We went for the earlybird offer at 6pm on Saturday. The food was superb and the service was excellent- very friendly but unobtrusive, efficient yet unhurried. Fairly priced with some nice surprise extras. Highly recommended.

I booked a table for my wife and I following her return from working in Scotland, in the expectation that we would have a lovely meal. What we were given surpassed even our expectations - one of the best we've had ion recent years. Service, menu, presentation and quality were first class, culminating in the most beautiful, light and tasty... More

Had read very positive review on TA and wasn't disappointed. Excellent food, including some lovely fish options on the menu. Very welcoming and friendly service. The restaurant was busy, but still felt intimate with two of us there for dinner. Above average price point, but absolutely worth it for a special occasion or treat.

Mix that with Melton���s friendly, warm service and it���s easy to see why this charming restaurant has remained a local favourite over the years. Sample the delights of local duck with five spice and soya, steamed rice and pak choi, or flavorsome mussel risotto with anise air.
