“Third visit here didn't disappoint.”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

This a really excellent restaurant to visit in York. Friendly service, excellent food and really good value. The only thing that lets it down is the decor in the back room, which is a little grim and old fashioned and doesn't match the quality of everything else this place has to offer. I'd thoroughly recommend it. Try the sticky toffee pudding! It's literally the best of its type available.

“Lovely Meal”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We booked this in advance of our stay in York and we are glad we did as Friday night was full. We had a lovely meal and the food was very tasty and well presented. The staff are very professional too.

“DISAPPOINTED WITH OUR FAVOURITE YORK RESTAURANT”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

This is the first time we have ben disappointed with our meal at this restaurant which is our York favourite. I ordered Mussels cooked with white wine and garlic cream. The mussels had large shells but the actual mussels were very small and tough, some shells did not have any mussels in them. The sauce was very bland.
For a main course I had the Barnsley chop which was very good which is more than I can say for the hard carrots which was served with it. The Eaton mess saved the day It was nice to see that the menu had changed.

“wonderful steak”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

I had booked this restaurant as it is a Gourmet society member and we had a wonderful meal.
We both ordered the rib eye steak which was cooked to perfection, always a good sign when they don't give you steak knives! Our only gripe was that we were so full after one course we couldn't manage any dessert. Highly recommended!
