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.

Lovely pub with friendly staff. Menu was a little limited but this maybe due to post lockdown/bank holiday pressures. The food we did have was lovely and obviously homemade. Bit of a delay bringing desserts but I suspect this was due to the rain! Overall - nice pub and would recommend

Due to Covid restrictions we were seated outside in a large garden, tables were large enough not to be sitting on one another and far apart from others. Burgers were nice. Could have done with some heaters outside and some gentle music for ambience, but as it's a residential area that might not be allowed I guess. Heaters would be a plus though. Thanks for a nice evening.

Our first outing since lockdown and our first meal out in 8 months and it was fantastic. All the staff were fantastic - all wearing masks and cleaning down tables after use etc. The tables were also actually 2m apart from each other which was great, and made us feel really safe.
