    We have tried so many cafes and restaurants in York but this is always top of the list. Great atmosphere, staff and food...what's not to like.

    Forest is such a lovely place to eat and a surprising find. We wanted a Sunday roast and struggled to find somewhere that wasn’t trying to be all fancy and that was good value for money. Forest didn’t disappoint. The meal was presented in a beautiful way and was very tasty. Portion sizes were good, and with a shared starter of Camembert we didn’t have room for pudding. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. We would definitely visit again when in York.
