Located just outside the city walls in a lovely leafy area of York. The building was once a orphanage and has been tastefully transformed into a stylish hotel. The Sunday Brunch is excellent value for money, if you can manage it you can eat 4 courses, soup for the first course and an excellent farmers market, with a great choice of seafood, pates and hams. The roast is excellent.The service is good and all the staff are very helpful. A popular choice with families as just about every other table was a large gathering of several generations.For smokers there is an outdoor room, complete with armchairs and fake fire - very considerate. An excellent venue, with rear parking.
