“Good for drinks, bad for food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended to me by someone who is a regular. I can see why it is popular as a drinking haunt, but the food was terrible. The burger was practically in edible & portions overfacing. Good selection of beers, however and discount given with loyalty card. Bar staff were friendly but waitress was very moody, did not smile & just looked resentful we were there! Not somewhere I would rush back to.

“Perfect night out with the lasses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Never been here before and I will be going again. Four lasses, Friday night, dinner and drinks, menu choice was amazing - lots of veggie options. Two starters to share, 4 mains, 2 bottles of wine £20 each, that was without NHS discount and we missed Happy Hour!! Portion sizes are epic, staff are lush, great atmosphere. Might need to book!!

“Amazing service, value and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We came for a hen do, after struggling to find somewhere that could accommodate 20 of us, and we were not disappointed! The service was amazing considering we were such a big group and the food / wine was excellent value. It was delicious and I'd definitely go all the way back to York just to go here again!

“Lovely, lovely place, great and very reasonably priced food/drink and it's child friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

One of the nicest features of this place is that it has a large outside dining area with a leafy garden feel (no worries about the weather it has a roof on)! There are also upstairs and downstairs dining areas. It's always buzzing here at whatever time of day you visit. I'm a greedy girl but a house burger defeats me! I come here for lunch with friends, on a date, when I have visitors and it's a great place for an after-work bash.

My man and I shared the Mediterranean Platter. Lots of delicious hummus, grilled artichoke hearts, roasted aubergines, masses of olives, parma ham, spiced oils and balsamic vinegars and lots of pitta bread to dip and scoop with.

We had two large glasses of red, the platter and two large freshly brewed coffees all for £21. Amazing value! Everything is freshly cooked and you may wait a little longer than average, but I'd rather that than be served 'ping cuisine'. You always know when food has been microwaved - ugh!

The decor is cool, upstairs dining area has clocks all over the walls and the posters and stuff in the ladies loo are fab.

Can get very busy, but it's worth the wait.
