    Amazing food and service and the staff couldn't be more pleasant and helpful. We had a fantastic evening celebrating a friends 50th birthday. And a fantastic location in York. Thank you.

    This is a beautiful restaurant- very old, great history, wonderful ambience. Unfortunately the food didn’t match. I’m gluten intolerant and dairy free. I have travelled around the UK for a month and have had an overall wonderful experience with restaurants that really try to make nice food that meets my requirements. This was the first place that I felt really didn’t care about my dining experience. There was very little available for gluten intolerance. I ordered a breast of chicken. I knew that the sauces that they made were not gluten free. I thought it would be ok. The meal was supposed to come with a fried tomato and mushrooms, chips and onion ring. Obviously I couldn’t have the onion ring so I asked for one of their sides - called cooked greens. I thought that the kitchen could at least make the effort to include the cooked mushrooms and tomato (even if they had to do up a few mushrooms in oil rather than butter). When I got my meal it was just a very dry chicken breast, chips and very dry green beans. I couldn’t actually get it down my throat without taking gulps of water. A server came and asked how our meals were. She was very kind when I explained I couldn’t really eat it and she went to the kitchen to get them to make me some gluten free gravy. It was very nice of her and I appreciated it - but why couldn’t the kitchen/chef think of it before it was brought to the table? I have been so pleasantly surprised at all the other places I have eaten - but this was a disappointment- I felt like I really didn’t matter. Having said that - I can’t fault the servers - they really tried to help me. In this case the chef/kitchen let me down.

    Our visit began with a drink in the bar area which although very small had a great ambience and excellent bar staff who couldn't have been more welcoming. We had booked for Sunday lunch which was absolutely delicious and very filling. Only downside after a starter and main none of us could manage a pudding. Great location and large beer garden. Would highly recommend and will definitely go back if we returned to York in the future

    I would have preferred a greater choice of vegetables instead of only carrots and green beans. However the meal was substantial and service highly attentive.

    We arrived for our anniversary meal, we felt very rushed from the start, wine was lovely but £32 for a bottle of red was a bit much. The food was poor for the price it was. Especially the cheese board which had missing items. I got the feeling staff couldn’t be bothered and it wasn’t that they were dealing with a full restaurant because it was quite empty. The fact that this restaurant had availability on a Saturday night and everywhere else was fully booked speaks volumes. I don’t think I will be returning. Very disappointing
