We booked to have a Sunday roast following many friends recommendations and could not have been left more disappointed! We all had roast dinners and whilst the food was well presented it was completely cold and the vegetables were still raw. We raised this with the staff who brought out a plate full of carrots and parsnips and Yorkshire puddings however these were just as cold and the Yorkshire puddings were nothing more than raw batter. For the prices on their menu we were extremely disappointed and paid for our drinks however said we were not prepared to pay for food which was simple inedible. Having raised this with the assistant manager we were advised by her and the chefs that “the food is on the chefs but you should not return in future”! From hearing such good things and having enjoyed previous visits (drinks only) I couldn’t have been more shocked or appalled at the treatment we received. It’s understandable that food may not be up to standard every now and then but the way we were spoken to by staff has to go down as the worst experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant!
Nice friendly team, good beer options.
Didn't eat but I will soon as the food looked good!
Great service, very polite and attentive. Food was good on the Sunday roast, except the carrots and parsnips were really hard! I don’t mind ‘al dente’ but this was ‘just warmed through‘. Brownie dessert was lovely, not too big. Otherwise very nice.
Sunday lunch with a friend. Warm welcome from Andrew and the team. Beautifully cooked roasts and starters, service great throughout and very good value. Highly recommended.
It was amazing food. You should try the fantastic sauces. Short ribs - wow! Very good mushroom burger for the veggies too with 5 different mushrooms. Delicious chicken salad - looked very attractive too. Very good value for the quality of the food. Lovely service and felt Covid safe. We have booked again!!
Well run establishment through the COVID times. Very organised and safe. Good beer and good quality food
Very interesting menu, particularly starters. Recommend the wings and potted crab. My local. Lucky me.
Incredible food, fantastic service and lovely company! What better way to spend a Friday night!
Staff were very friendly food was great
Really nice greeting by staff member. Good explanations of the precautions they are taking for customers and staff. The young girl who waited on us was really attentive and friendly. Slightly disappointed the menu was minimal. Small bites were varied but main courses were limited. Fish chips. Various burgers and Sea bass. I have to say, we had the sea bass and it was delicious. Would've liked to have seen more on the menu.
Nice food and friendly staff. We arrived just when it open so it wasn’t busy which was nice.
I would recommend this for food but I would put in the caveat that the kids food wasn’t as described. You have to use an app, and the staff aren’t able to give guidance. I ordered a plain burger for my son, what turned up was a lovely gourmet burger for an adult, looked homemade and was full of herbs and spices. We had to order chicken goujons off of the app, which arrived after my daughter and my wife had already finished their meals. If there was a paper menu probably it would have had a far more embellished description and we wouldn’t have ordered it. My wife and I both had the crab salad which was delicious, great chips, the chicken was a hit with both kids. Lovely atmosphere overall, some loud swearing from the table next to us ( 6.30 on a Saturday night..bit out of order) but this isn’t the pubs fault. We had spent the day at bewilderwood and this was a great way to finish.
Fantastic tasty roast! Menu is very limited to wings or a roast so my wife had to order off the children’s menu for a chicken burger. But my roast was brilliant! And so was the chicken burger to be fair!
Lovely pub, friendly staff good value, would definitely be back
The place is very nice and they have a beautiful garden. Nice pub to gather with friends having a beer. However the food is not good, in fact the roast is terrible.
We had fish and chips but the fish had not been properly descaled and wasn’t cooked through. Not very enjoyable. Good covid measures in place.
Veey impressed at compliance with social distancing and food safety when serving us.
Ate out on the last day of eat out to help out. Knew it was just a bbq before we arrived but choice was very limited and for the money food was very average. Glad we didn’t pay full price. Staff were very good though and Covid-19 policies Eg hand sanitiser and one way system were really good.
Food was amazing, once the app 'Round' was downloaded everything was very prompt and smooth
Great food. Nice atmosphere in the garden - excellent beverage selection. I’ve been twice this week; great Covid measures.
Lovely dining experience with really friendly staff. And the food was gorgeous. Would definitely visit again!
Not sure why we paid such a big service charge. The perils of the app!
Very quiet when we visited to eat. The food was very expensive and the sides were an additional cost-£12 for a burger in its own - so terrible value for money in this area where there is plenty of competition.
We finished our drinks then left to eat elsewhere. The waitress was querying something for us regarding the food but never returned with an answer so I doubt we'll be back for anything more than a pint. Shame.
Booked a table for food and drinks, ordered food was then told by quite an unfriendly waitress that the kitchen wasn’t accepting food orders anymore. Not good service at all. It wasn’t even that busy.
Fab - felt super safe and the cauli wings were 👌🏻
I felt very safe here . The precautions taken are very good and the place is lovely. Would recommend it to anyone.
Food was amazing although the crab was out of stock. Several things missing from our order but the waitress seemed to busy to keep bothering.
For example, a portion of chips, bacon on a burger and croutons on a salad.
Although you have to order from an app let’s not forget the service guys.
Quick, friendly service! Great evening in the beer garden
Very good covid safety measures. Staff very friendly and nice atmosphere in the garden. Food good but very expensive for what you get!
Completely joyless experience. No fun. Had to use app to order drinks.
Great service, the waitresses couldn’t have done more for us. They also let us have the function room upstairs to ourselves as it was my friends birthday. The food was all homemade and tested great! The team were happy to explain new measures that are in place at the moment and didn’t make us feel rushed. We will definitely be back! They made our night!
Very cool place, original and very good food. Very good service
Great service and atmosphere. I will definitely visit again soon.
We had to wait an hour and a half for food. No real reason given save they were busy and getting used to the new app.
New guidelines in place worked well but it also meant our food was slow to arrive as they were adjusting to a new order system. Staff were friendly and food was good but when ordering a burger I expect fries to be included when paying over £12!
As long as the summer is good we'll be back as can only eat outside in a group.
I felt very safe here with how the York had thought about our safety and theirs with regards to the virus. They were thoughtful and could not have been more helpful. Very happy to go back any time. The food is lovely
Lovely to be back! The garden is looking great, and tables are well spaced. Ordering by app was easy. Fish and chips delicious.
Fantastic food. Amazing BBQ burger with a fig jam. The crab pot was amazing - loved the pickled radishes on top. Very nice large garden.
Delicious meal, excellent and friendly staff who, spotting our average age of 50'ish, asked if we'd like a table in a quiet area.
The food was super yummy but we all felt the portion needed to be bigger! Clam and mussel tagliatelle.
