Melton's was a welcome find on an annual birthday trip to York from our home in Edinburgh. It is slightly off the well-trodden tourist trail around the Minster area and old town, but still only 20 mins from the main station or 5 mins by taxi.
Family owned for 23 years, the menu choice was varied and creative. I had pheasant instead of my usual steak choice and I am assured that the scallops and fish main were outstanding.
The wine list is extremely comprehensive for a smaller restaurant and even old favourites like Merlot and Sauvignon Blancs have more unusual varieties on offer. We went for a light Gavi which was perfectly chilled and sensibly priced at about £23 a bottle.
Melton's has worked hard to build up a clientele with theme nights and tasting menus which change regularly. A successful family run business like this which has perfected the art of a 5 star meal at 3 star prices deserves to be supported. I look forward to a return visit.
