There are so many restaurants in York and this one is as good as any of them. We had a nice friendly welcome and prompt service.

Booked and had a table for 6 confirmed for this Saturday but when we arrived we were told they had mistakenly overbooked and had no room at all. Very poor. Beware.

We ate here last night before attending the theatre and it was one of the best meals we've ever had. We both had the fixed price menu and it did not disappoint. All three courses were amazing and we were very impressed. The black pudding starter, pork main course and backewell tart were beautiful, along with the fresh bread served... More
