Good atmosphere and nice decor. Speed of service was good but value wasn’t great for the standard of food. £50 for just a main and soft drink for two. Service charge included in the bill which is fine but the rest of the change outside of service was never bought back to the table. I would have tipped this anyway but would be nice to be given the option.

Our third visit, we don’t go out regularly due to family commitments.
Food and service has been top notch each time, and for the Valentines menu well the truffles were full of flavour, main of sea bream cooked perfectly as was the beef wellington.
We told waiting staff to pass on a job well done to the kitchen staff.
Overall the evening was 9/10 only because we didn’t particularly like the music neither genre or sound level .... sorry 😬
Price £149 for two, not cheap but as it was a Valentine evening and the food excellent I’d rather pay more and say I enjoyed rather than pay less and say I’d never go back to a restaurant.

We were warmly welcomed to the table and served promptly, however the food was average, we all had the Sunday roast (pork, beef, chicken) and it was rather tasteless, chicken was a little bit dry, beef had little flavour and the cracklings was soggy; to see it this could be redeemed by dessert we ordered 3 desserts, the cheesecake was still frozen, the other 2 desserts were average. To be honest it usually a really good roast.

This has been a local favourite for many years but alas it has gone down hill due to poor service and management. Staff can’t answer basic questions about the menu. The waitress also got the drinks order wrong. Poor communication about why half our food order was delayed. The manager didn’t smile once and it certainly wasn’t the warm welcome we’ve been use to in the past. Good staff are worth their weight in gold. Poor staff can kill off your business very quickly.

The pros are it’s a nice venue and some of the staff are lovely.
The cons.... we booked on the bottomless brunch which was clearly stated in the email, but the manager told us we couldn’t have the menu even though we had arrived while it hours still be running. She eventually she agreed. Our waitress was very lovely but it was obvious the manager had reluctantly allowed us the menu so the Prosecco was not free flowing. We had to ask for every glass and at times the poor waitress was run off her feet with other tables that there was a huge gap int time for the glasses to be topped up. The food is very average. I asked for no mayo on the bun, it came up covered in it and by the time a replacement bun came I had almost finished my burger. My friends had the veggie breakfast which come with no toast/bread. A further £3.50 was added to the bill for bread. None of my group of 4 were impressed with this place and it will swerved by all of us.

Really good food at a very reasonable price (the January offer) Staff are really friendly my only gripe was that the plates were cleared from the table at the end of each course when one of us was still eating. Really they should wait until we have all finished eating before clearing the plates. Of course that is a small thing and I would certainly recommend the restaurant.

The service staff could not be better. Unfortunately the chef could do with a bit of a less Ramsey attitude. I asked for no bones to be on the plate , that’s how the chef told me it was served said the waiter. I wish this could of been brought to my attention when ordering. The Yorkshire pudding was more cracker , it actually shattered. There was not enough gravy on the plate to try and over come the cracker pudding.
As for the desert , that was wonderful.

For a Gordon Ramsey restaurant that was putting on a special Christmas dinner (with gratuity included up front), we were not pleased with the inattentive service, lukewarm vegetables, limited selection of cheeses and high price. I am happy to pay Michelin “Three Star” (3*) rated restaurant prices when I get the highest quality food and service. Here, we had poor service, marginal food and almost Michelin 1* prices. We have been to other Gordon Ramsey restaurants and had a good experience but his name, portrait (inside restaurant) and his promoting this location for Christmas and New Year’s all make us question whether or not this brand has over-expanded.

It is very unusual for me to write a review and tonight I feel I must begin giving my dining experiences a voice. I have eaten at York and Albany more than once, both as a single diner and as part of a larger party. Tonight I leave the restaurant not wanting to return. There were many issues, beginning with the glass of Prosecco advertised with the meal, to including the table not being set, the creativity of the menu to include the presentation of the dessert. I am a vegetarian and there was a set menu, so I was expecting only one vegetarian choice - the usual. However, my starter was beets and my main, advertised as Vegetarian Wellington, was "beet" Wellington. I love beets but there are other vegetables. ... For £95pp I expect the vegetables to be full of flavour and varied, not for them to be boiled and without flavour.
To add to the disaster of our Christmas meal was the waitstaff, they were completely useless. We waited for more than 20 minutes to be addressed and actually received no service until my daughter went to the front of house to enquire; just receiving a glass of water continued to be an issue. We also had to ask for the table to be set as ours was missing Christmas crackers and wine glasses, items that were on other tables, tables that were empty the entire time we were in the restaurant. The reply to crackers was "that will come later" (referring to edible crackers?), a complete disconnect. If Gordon Ramsey is looking for a Kitchen Nightmare venue, he needs to look no further?

There was nothing outright bad about this Christmas day lunch, apart from the fact that it was completely mispriced: at £95 per person what they offered us was not so much as a tablecloth, any decoration apart from a 50p Christmas cracker and three meagre courses that would at most have cost £40pp in any trendy London gastropub. The food wasn't bad, just really nothing special about it. The service was ok (again nothing to write home about, neither especially attentive nor too poor). Portions were small. For £8 I received half a glass of cheap, unexciting mulled wine that I would have paid at most £4 at any market stall. So really all the blame on the management who set the price: they were really having a trip to another planet if they thought they could get away with it and for starters I took the additional service fee off (something I normally never do). I hope this place is not normally like that - as it really left a bad aftertaste - but me, I'm unlikely to return.

Oh dear - this used to be one of my favourite restaurants for a nice, even special dinner. So I arranged to take colleagues here - mistake.
The food was indifferent- my tortellini was so over salted as to be inedible and no one spoke well of their experience. The service was indifferent too as though the wait staff really couldn’t be bothered. It took 20 minutes for some bread to be fetched to go with the soup etc. The restaurant was also basically empty on a Friday night so Gordon, word has got around that things have slipped badly. And then a bill of £60 per head added insult to injury. Shame.
