Nestled near Regent’s Park in North West London, Gordon Ramsay’s York & Albany restaurant is a former 1820s coaching inn that's been transformed into a well-appointed townhouse restaurant, bar, hotel and terrace.

The Georgian townhouse, built by historic British architect John Nash, has been re-decorated by Russell Sage. From awesome arches and gilded mirrors through to vaulted ceilings and restored furniture, there are many areas within the venue to suit your needs with two private dining rooms and a hidden courtyard, in addition to the restaurant and large open bar.

Menus focus on modern British food and guests can dine all day, from breakfast through to dinner.

The actual restaurant is nice but looks very dated! Burger was so salty and should come with chips! I would not go back, much nicer places around that area

The food was AMAZING. It was cooked beautifully. I visited the branch on Sunday and thought I’d be disappointed by their small Sunday menu but actually I was pleasantly surprised. The Hiramasa king fish tartare was delightful - a mix of flavours - I advise putting it in the lettuce/greens to consume. For main I got the crispy skin trout and it was cooked to PERFECTION. The mix of flavours left me wanting more but I was unable to eat more as I was so full. My plate was as clean as possible, I left NOTHING. My friend and I got triple cooked chips and grilled broccoli as sides and they were delicious. Next time I come here I WILL get dessert! The only negative was the loud family next to our table but that can’t be blamed on the restaurant. By the way for every main meal purchased, a child can eat for free!!

We 4 adults had a lovely late lunch after a day at the zoo with 2 primary age children (one household). The food was excellent and the service exemplary. All the staff went our of their way to ensure that our lunch was relaxed and enjoyable. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, despite the restaurant being relatively quiet in mid afternoon. The seasonal menu is very good value.

A quiet night in town, unsurprising given current restrictions, but it didn't help the ambience in the restaurant which was very dark. The bar was more lively and we would have preferred to have been offered the bar menu. My wife's meal was tepid and needed to be re-heated, and came back only marginally warmer. The quality of my steak was poor, very sinewy. If this is the dining experience in a more central location we will stay local. Disappointing

The autumnal chill matched the funereal atmosphere in the room. As we walked in it felt like something terrible had just happened. The restaurant was almost empty. We were offered a large table near the window with low seats. The staff happily showed us to another table but the steely blue formica style tables and deep blue seats continued the morgue-like theme in the stark lighting. An injection of colour and warmth is needed. Perhaps when the sun shines through the impressive curved Georgian windows there is more joy inside the dining room. Our meals were good but the ambience let down the whole experience.

Very attentive and polite service, but sadly the food was a little boring. We ordered beetroot salads, which were great, but our burgers that followed were overcooked and the bread was dry and stale.
We tried the 'Love London' menu, so the meal was good value and the food quality was fair, but we would have been disappointed if we were paying full price.

The food was lovely - fish and chips and the chicken burger followed by toffee sundae and brownie. Nice and quiet, plenty of space around us. Two of their chairs need an update but that’s nothing to complain about. Service was attentive and efficient and the Rose wine was light and fruity.

I rarely put feedback but felt I needed to this time.
Booked thinking that a Gordon Ramsay restaurant would be good quality. It wasn’t.
Restaurant: gastropub. Neither restaurant or pub. A bit shabby.
Service: Friendly. Took food off the bill that wasn’t up to standard.
Food: limited selection and a bit basic. Cottage pie ok but nothing special with tasteless broccoli. Chicken burger looked and tasted awful. Covered in a sickly spicy/cheese sauce. My wife couldn’t touch it. Kids menu looked ok. 5 yr old had fish/chips. Floury batter not up to standard. Chips fine.
Drinks: no complaints.
Facilities: nasty smell downstairs from the loos. Baring in mind it’s COVID, the loos were dirty.

First dinner out since Lockdown and was a positive experience. We sat outside. Menus were online. There was hand sanitizer inside the doorway. Extra sanitizer in the bathroom as well as soap and hand cream.

We had chosen the restaurant as we expected this from a GRH establishment.

Food as always was good. The Love London Menu was extremely good value for money.

We went shortly after Lockdown was lifted. So our experience might have been affected by the unusual circumstances. The restaurant was very quiet with little atmosphere. We ordered Old Fashioned cocktails, which were not well made at all and difficult to finish. The starters were fine but small. We had burgers which were pretty good. Dessert was disappointing.

Overall you would not think that this was a fancy gastro-pub, certainly not for the price paid.

The food at the Albany and York was delicious. Both my friend and I chose the cauliflower as a main and it was exquisite. However the staff were a bit slow to ask if we wanted a drink when we sat down. Also the bare tables made the place feel more like a refectory than a restaurant. Although the staff weren’t wearing masks it was clear they were taking Covid seriously.
