We found russells by accident while looking for an evening meal. We chose from the carvery and enjoyed an excellent meal. The staff were very friendly and we were served very quickly. It was so good , we returned the next evening. We thought the two course meal was good value for money.

Met up with a cousin and took her for a car very at Russell's of Coppergate. I took her and my partner there because my first visit was very good however things have changed. Being a Coeliac I was restricted on what was available for me, the meat was a choice of two and only two slices. I was not... More

Four of us ate here, 3 had the carvery, one went for salmon. The food was really good, generous portions of meat from the carvery and unlimited veg. The restaurant is centrally located and had plenty of seating. The service was excellent and friendly. We would eat here again.

We dropped in to grab lunch on a Saturday. Not being familiar with york, we didn't realise it specialised in carvery until we sat down. I dislike carveries and would have left at this point, but I saw they also did a la carte. I chose the chicken club sandwich which was very tasty and large and came with wedges.... More

Friendly helpful staff. Food very good. Carvery excellent. It is in the centre of York on a nice quiet road. Large well maintained establishment with good decor comfortable dining areas well designed to give space and privacy if wished.

Nipped in for a meal as prices/carvery looked ok. Not much in regards to customer service, a bit confusing as to how it all works, the carvery ham was very nice, the beef was tough though, veg nothing special ok for the price (& don't expect a usual size carvery plate - unless you pay extra for the 3 meat...

Arrived towards the end of the lunchtime serving hours and ordered a blt, 3 chicken & bacon club and a nut roast. The chicken and bacon clubs were basically just chicken and bacon on toast. I'd expected it to have at least lettuce and bacon on too. It was served with some random wedges that appeared to have been bought... More

We were in York on a family visit and had just completed the York Dungeons, so we were getting hungry. There were three adults and two children, so we opted for a general restaurant that could offer a mix of food. We saw Russell's and liked the look of the cavery (which we saw through the window). We went in... More

The food was fine but a bit bland. Vegetables were mostly very basic. If you like gravy, they certainly give you plenty of that. My father had chocolate Fudge cake, as did the children. He was offered cream or ice cream. We were told the children didn't get that with their fudge cake, only a 1/2 portion of cake. A... More
