    Good food on the whole - a couple of the starters were slightly disappointing (trout fritters), service initially slow, but once orders were taken, it was very good. Good cocktails, wine, ambience. Reasonably priced. Nice people. Beautiful setting.

    A great venue for a 50th brunch made all the more special by being treated so well by all staff and given the opportunity to sit in the lounge for a drink afterwards.

    The miracle is that we found the restaurant because the Open Table app map puts it in Harrogate, thus causing us distress and doing damage to the restaurant

    The Refectory has recently been recommended to me and does not disappoint. A beautifully appointed venue with a fantastic outside space (we didn't use this sadly, owing to the weather!!). Inside was stylishly decorated and has kept many of the original features of the building. The food was superb: reasonably priced especially considering the quality and presentation. The service went above and beyond with the staff going the extra mile to make our meal very special. One of the staff even made us a special cocktail which was no longer on the menu. The only downside of our visit was a wedding party who arrived in an upstairs room half-way through our meal. There were clearly, a number of small children who were shouting and screaming and running about on the wooden floor above us, they were having a wonderful time but it was very noisy and spoilt the ambiance. Again, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and understanding and were happy to move us away from the worst of the noise. I can wholeheartedly recommend the Refectory.

    What a delightful evening with high attention to our party. The creative and delicious mains, salads and sides were wonderful. Quiet venue perfect for intimate family chats for the hearing aid enabled. So close to the Minster and a gorgeous open air/patio sheltered area out front. Perfect for lunch and afternoon drinks.

    Beautiful building that has been tastefully transformed into a very nice eatery. The staff were attentive and polite from the off. Good menu with specials of the day available as well as al a carte. The food was delicious and we would not hesitate to return.

    We booked a table for six at 2.30pm on a Sunday. The building itself is stunning, as is the outdoor seating area. This was packed, as it was a warm and sunny day and unfortunately there were no tables left outside by the time we arrived, so we were seated inside - but the building is beautiful, so it wasn’t too much of a hardship. We were the only diners in the restaurant for the majority of our meal, so the atmosphere felt a little strange at times but it didn’t spoil our meal and it actually allowed us to chat and laugh freely without worrying about disturbing anyone else. The staff were welcoming and attentive and the food was absolutely beautiful. High quality ingredients and everything tasted wonderful. All six of us opted for different dishes from both the main a la carte menu and from the Sunday lunch menu, and we all agreed our choices were delicious. We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and we will definitely return.

    Another fabulous visit to York Minster Refectory. The team there are always so welcoming, drinks are amazing and food is outstanding. We had Sunday lunch which is certainly the best in York. A big thank you to Marcus and all of his team and Chef Ronny (Josh) and the team. Food really is exceptional.
