The quality of the food was excellent and our waiter Jon was attentive and helpful, with an excellent sense of humour. We were accompanied by relatives who are also food bloggers on a round-the-world trip sampling the best local cuisine; they were very impressed by Miller's and rightly so! More

Contemporary British | York, North Yorkshire

We came for a special occasion as although regularly in York we usually eat within the city walls. We were very glad to take a very short cab journey to this great restaurant. We had the 7 course taster menu and at least 4 courses were beyond superb. 2 were very good, and one was interesting. The meal caused much delight and discussion in itself, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was absolutely wonderful. As we live in London, we found the price very competitive and we will most definitely return. More

We love the Punchbowl..brought friends and it didn’t disappoint!One observation is, however...we would like to have eaten outside as it was a lovely day.But the wooden tables had benches and we are all in our sixties and find it uncomfortable with no back rests.The small tables and chairs were adequate for snacks but not meals for 4.So, better outside seating would be great!

Imptressed with getting a table for 6 on a busy Saturday night. As it was a last minute booking, it meant we resulted in having a further 25 minute wait for the table, but it was for a table of 6 and we were not in a rush so totally understandable. We all really enjoyed the food, good portion size and all stuffed after a starter and main course! Most awkward of the group to please said the food was nice (which is high praise!). Staff very friendly and accommodating to questions and requests. We shall be returning in the future. More

The Oak Tree Inn
The Oak Tree Inn

££££
Gastro Pub | York, North Yorkshire

We have always chosen the Oak Tree Inn it is a very nice little place and the steak is absolutely to die for, the Rib Eye is a bit pricey but I definitely not going to complain as it is always nice and juicy, tasty and succulent. However the only issue I have is I ask for a Well Done steak I like a well done steak, I can only surmise the chef took offence? As the steak was cooked, no blood but definitely not well done! I don’t like to listen to the Cow Moo and jump up and do the highland fling as I cut into it! Trust me as my wife cut into hers, I could hear the cow moving and could see the cow dancing on the plate as my wife cut into it! The dessert was gorgeous and sweet but such a small portion, we shared it but I could have had it all to myself. The staff were amazing as usual, so can’t complain there. More

Came here for Sunday lunch with 2 children. At £10 the roast is amazing and the staff are lovely. Only reason I’ve marked it down slightly is that it’s a lot more like a bar than I was expecting compared to its old incarnation in Horsforth, but given its centre location I guess that makes sense.

Afternoon Tea | York, North Yorkshire

When we arrived, the Principal didn’t have our booking down and looked very concerned, so it wasn’t a very nice welcome. I was told this may be because it was an Opentable booking so be careful of that. We were seated but were put on one of the worst tables, which we felt was due to the booking error, not our fault. We had a lovely glass of champagne and service was very good throughout the food. The sandwiches were dry but the rest was lovely. When we left, we had to get up to pay the bill as all the staff had disappeared. Not the best food and service but was a nice experience More
