Steakhouse | York, North Yorkshire

Birthday dinner on a Sunday. The main menu wasn’t available (the option was a Sunday lunch menu) but the waiter said they would be happy to make us any of the steak dishes from the main menu. Given steak is the speciality of the house, that’s what we ordered and it did not disappoint. High quality produce, expertly cooked to our requirements and attractively served. It’s not cheap, but it is good value. My only criticism is that the Sunday menu is more limited for all 3 courses and previous dining experiences (not on a Sunday) have been better due to the greater variety of choices on offer. More

Contemporary British | York, North Yorkshire

We had the 7course tasting menu accompanied by the wine flight. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and passionate about her job and the food/wine pairings. I had pre warned that I do not eat red meat, and the chef had prepared an alternative main course for me which was just as delicious. I was also served an alternative wine to complement my food. Attention to detail! We did have to ask for service to be slowed down as we felt the courses were coming too quickly for us to appreciate them and savour the food and wine flavours. This was not a problem. Staff were attentive and not over bearing. The only criticism was the choice of "background music which we felt was inappropriate for a relaxed fine dining experience and a bit too loud. Otherwise, a superb evening. More

How they manage to do all they do with just the 2 of them is a wonder and a credit to them both. I convinced my husband to try the pork as he gets very upset if the crackling isn’t up to scratch thankfully he was not disappointed!!! Otherwise it would have been a long drive home.
