    The food was good and we got served relatively quickly. The only thing was, during happy hour, every person was paying a different price when ordering round for the table. The guy at the bar was happy to make 2 for £12 for all cocktails for women but he was making the men paying more (2 for £12 for one pair of cocktails and normal price for other cocktails)…

    The York NR2Responded on 1 May 2022

    Hi Maelys, thank you for your review. We don’t charge anyone differently under any circumstances, our till creates the deal on cocktails, if an error occurred when your group ordered we can only apologise. If you had brought this to our attention at the time we could have resolved the issue. Unfortunately as we were so busy yesterday with service we would’ve just charged what the till showed. Please do get in touch directly if you wish to discuss the matter further. Kind Regards, Management Team

    The Sunday roast we had were really not very pleasant - bland, swimming in horrible gravy and the veggie option was soggy mushrooms filled with grey paste. Such a shame as we ate here last year and the food was really nice. The chef must have changed since our last visit. Very disappointing.

    Blimey the breakfast was good!!! We went for my birthday brunch and my home made eggs Benedict was amazing, swimming in Hollandaise and Parma ham. Loved the pea tips as a garnish. My husband’s full English was delicious too. The service was great and very professional and the new decor looked really cool

    Post match dinner - this was an ideal choice. Great service. Excellent starters and dessert. Only downside was the lamb main dish, which needs re-thinking as there is a lot for tasty dry food on the plate and nothing to help moisten it - 3 of us ordered it and all had the same experience - we had to ask for a jug of gravy to make it manageable. The other mains were great and the duck got a rave review. We’ll be back but won’t order the lamb again

    Really enjoyed the visit. The waitress was brilliant! Food was excellent! Only things i thought could have been better were (a) they're called dining tables NOT dinning tables (b) the menu online did not match the actual menu when you arrived and (c) i told the Open Table App that this was a date and asked them to offer Spanish wine to my Spanish date - the place wasn't busy at all but this message obviously never got through to the pub. Still a solid 4/5 and we will be back as food and service was great!

    One veggie, one teenager, one kid and one Sunday roast-lover, all super happy every time we eat here. It’s safe, staff are careful with masks, distancing, cleanliness, and nice touches like individual pots for any sauces so they avoid plastic sachets as well as cross-contamination. The welcome, generous portions, and attention to detail stand out, as do the high quality of the ethically sourced (often organic) ingredients and excellent menu range. Really recommend.
