“Acomb has arrived!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

If you were ever going to put a tiny bistro to the test, you would send in 25 local women a few days after the chef left. To be extra awkward they'd all demand to be served at once!
Not that you would have known it.
Acomb needs a bit of a facelift and Conlan's is hoiking it up Hollywood style - it's a proper bistro with restaurant ( good restaurant) quality .
It isn't cheap - you get what you pay for. Figure in a taxi and drinks in town and you have much more than covered the cost. Saying that, for what you get; it's a bargain.
The food was lovely and there was plenty - I could not eat the pudding after because I was full but I tasted it and it was delish.
I don't feel as if I have to break down the menu - it's THAT good and you will not be disappointed.
Most of all, the service was brilliant-I know they must have been a bit stressed but it never reflected on our party.
I cannot sing Conlan's praises enough - have recommended to everyone .
Thank you all for a fantastic night - Acomb is behind you xx

“Brilliant Breakfasts at a hidden gem in Acomb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Went here for breakfast in December.
Perfect Poached eggs - seriously the best I've ever had.
My stepdad had the full English - and as a breakfast connoisseur - it passed all tests as he says we're going again when he's next in York!
Lovely relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff - oh and yes the coffee is fantastic too!
A hidden gem in Acomb!

Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know what you think of our new little venture. We look forward to spoiling you next time you are in the village. We just made a new website and have some offers available for our bistro on FridaySat nights and also for Sunday lunches. (www.conlanscafebistro.co.uk)
P.S.We just changed our egg supplier to a chap called Paul who is as nuts about fresh produce as we are...would love to know what you think! :)

Thanks a million again
