Description: Moments from York racecourse and the River Ouse you���ll find local gem, Melton���s. Picked up by all the major food guides, and the only restaurant in York listed in Egon Ronay's Top 200 Restaurant's in Britain, Melton���s menu is Melton���s menu is an immaculate collection of local and international dishes using fresh regional produce. 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.

We went at lunch time as Melton's had been strongly recommended to us and neither Moby nor I have big appetites in the evening so probably couldn't do it justice. Our starter of fondant parsnips with chestnuts was artistically presented and delicious, and our main course of smoked haddock with crab cake on a bed of leek and crushedpotato equally so. The wine recommedation matched the food perfectly and because the portions were so generous we were unable to manage a pud so shared a delicious platter of 5 Yorkshire cheeses, the standout for me being the Huddersfield brie. We have some good restaurants here in Bath, but if we have anything to match the flair of Melton's, I've yet to eat there. Outstanding.

We went to Meltons on the 13th feb as a family to celebrate a birthday. We chose the fixed menu with a different wine with every course. Wow! What unusual and interesting wines to accompany great food!!!!

We have just returned from a quick trip to York for an anniversary. Melton's was really good on all counts. Service was informal yet thorough. Couldn't fault the food, the lamb with swede purée was particularly tasty. I'd definitely return if I was in the area.
