Good drinks and atmosphere and friendly staff. Didn't eat so can't comment but 2 friends enjoyed their food. App wasn't working which manager was apologetic about and took our order in person instead. Will come back again.

The York is a lovely setting with an expansive beer garden area perfect for the evening. The food was nice, however, after receiving half of the meal I ordered, I was told that they had ran out of the other part of my order. As everyone on the table was finishing their meals I was told, by a young waitress with a terrible attitude that I could order something else, but I would be charged for any extra expense. After voicing my frustrations I was greeted by who I presume to be the manager who was equally unhelpful and verging on rude.

Great service and tasty food. Still feel prices are a little high for the portions but maybe I'm less used to eating out prices these days! Recommend.

Disappointing menu. No classic pub food anymore- American menu such as burgers and wings. Draft beers on show weren’t available. Seating wasn’t very comfortable/ very low table.

Food is absolutely top notch, service was thorough but not too full on. Price is just about what you expect to pay for a decent gastro within the golden triangle.

The food was ok, burgers very nice. Crab salad half frozen and very bland. Chicken wings were good, but the "spicy chilli sauce" Carolina Reaper was so watered down it had virtually no heat or taste at all. Disappointing. All food need more salt and pepper.

Drinks and ambience were great! Nice pub. All of the food was nice but the BBQ ribs I ordered really weren't up to scratch unfortunately - quite dry and the sauce was poor. It wasn't terrible but I think they just need to rethink that dish!

Fabulous staff and great food. We had a table in marque and the sun had finally appeared! Late Sunday afternoon (last outdoor dining) party of four .... table across from us became within minutes extremely noisy/abusive to table of females who arrived in the garden area. It became pretty uncomfortable for all dinersI after a short time. The situation was dealt with with great skill by very young, polite female staff... the abuse hurled at them was dealt with politely and with skill and the obnoxious ‘boys’ left!
So hats off to the Sunday staff... you girls know who you are? We and everyone enjoyed the rest of our time at The York...

Me and my 5 friends went to the York for a meal last night. The staff were lovely and I felt perfectly safe given the current circumstances. Everyone enjoyed the food and felt prices were fair. My only complaint would be the ordering service via the website/QR code was a little difficult. When we had looked at the menu there were several options to upgrade fries or other meal items. Additionally it was difficult to make changes to the burgers for dietary needs. If the QR code website was better for ordering and matched to the published menu then our evening would have been perfect. Overall would definitely recommend the York and would happily return in future.
