In York for a couple of days so looked on TripAdvisor for good restaurants. We weren't disappointed! The meal was well worth the great fixed price of £16.95 for two courses and the service was friendly and attentive. Will be back again when next in the area

The Go Down is a little gem, we booked for the early bird menu which was £15.95 each for 2 courses. We had a choice of six starters and six mains which for me is about right, I prefer a smaller choice well executed, than a large choice resulting in overstretched chefs and average food.

The front of house staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was beautifully cooked and well presented: a starter of black pudding, rosti and crispy bacon for me, and fried whitebait for him, were lovely. Our mains were stuffed lamb and fish morne . My partner had lemon meringue pie to finish, I had a taste and it was lovely and sharp. A nice way to finish the meal.

I had never heard of this restaurant until my work friends booked it for a birthday meal, now I am looking forward to going again!!

The staff were lovely and very attentive, the wine was really nice and the food was delicious! We all ate off the set menu which was fantastic value for money and you can decide after if you can squeeze in a pudding too!

Will definitely be taking my friends and family here!!

Followed ratings advice from websites and found this wonderful restaurant. Do NOT be put off by the unassuming exterior, the moment you "go down" into the restaurant you know it's going to be good. Staff very welcoming, service very prompt and food excellent. 3 course set meal at £18.95 with a really good choice. The warm bread with (garlic)butter was a lovely touch. We ate their 2 nights running and enjoyed our choices both times. Best Onion soup I've ever had, my wife had melon with shrimps and marie rose sauce which again was rated as excellent. Mains were superb and sweets equally good on both visits. Looking forward to our next visit to York.

Thank you for yet another amazing meal.
Black pudding starter, steak main and tipsy trifle pudding.
Where do you start, the staff are so welcoming, fluffy hot bread with butter and garlic butter while you wait for your food. I'm not sure where they get the garlic butter from but wow delicious.
We always ask for a bottle of water which is free. Thank you again for fast service and fabulous food and a welcoming atmosphere.
I'll be back!
