The first thing to mention is the exceptionally competitive prices and friendly staff. Every time we've been (and we've been a few times now!) we've found the couple cooking/serving to be both friendly and professional.

The found is excellent with generous portions and is cooked well.

Drawbacks? The decor is dated, but then you can't have everything!

We'll certainly be back.

We tried the Go Down on spec as it was a handy walk from the Novotel. We took advantage of the early bird offers and enjoyed a wonderful 3 course meal (there were 7 of us including children). There wasn't a kids menu as such but they offered up a reasonable choice of smaller meals which were good.
A small family run restaurant, well managed and well served. The food was quite simply superb in every respect.
In summary, excellent food, wonderful service and very good value. Would recommend to anyone.

Visited The Go Down on a pre theatre trip last Friday.Owner run the booking and reception was first class only overshadowed by terrific local produce served in great surrounding.Very good wine list and a real must for a revisit -- we had the early starter menu and unlike other restaurants the quality and portion size matched the al la carte.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Go Down. We arrived in York early evening on the Friday and found The Go Down by chance. It was the best thing we ever did - the only disappointment was we couldn't book for Saturday as it was full. The food and service was absolutely excellent, we enjoyed everything. Personally my disappoitment was that I was so full I couldn't have my favourite desert - Sherry Trifle but I will make sure I get it next time if it's on the menu.

Group of 4 from Stalybridge, Cheshire.
