“Stunning Meal”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We visited recently to celebrate my husbands birthday and had a truly wonderful meal. The service was excellent and the food simply delicious. My husband loved the scallops to begin and followed with the duo of beef with he pronounced simply perfect, he is already talking about a return visit to sample this dish again. The menu is very interesting with a great range of desserts. Thanks to everyone for a super evening - see you again soon.

“Worth every penny”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

A fine dining experience. We booked this at the last minute through tastecard and I have to say I would happily have paid the full price, Excellent attentive service, delicious food at a reasonable price.

“Amazing Restaurant”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

Had a fantastic meal in this restaurant last night, it,was packed on a Thursday night which shows how good it must be. I had the Scallops with Black Pudding which were amazing, one of the nicest starters I've ever had, & then the Rack of Lamb for main course. This was beautifully tender and cooked nice & pink. My husband had the Smoked Duck Salad to start then the Venison Rump for main course. Both were delicious and beautifully cooked & presented. Our plates were clean! There is a nice wine list with plenty of choice under £20 & the staff are lovely, they really seem to want you to have a good time. We were too full for pudding but that gives us an excellent excuse to return for a second visit so we can try them!

“Excellent food at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Took my wife on a lunch time as we were visiting York. The three course set price menu was wide and varied and the food uniformly excellent, my wife's risotto and my lemon posset being exemplary. The portions were just right for a lunchtime. The wine (a crisp Chilean Sauvignon Blanc) was excellent and relatively reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be returning.

“Another cracking independent in York!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

A nice little place, with very good service and lovely surroundings. Give all the chains a miss and support these places, superb for a couples night!
