Half price Monday and happy hour made three pints of Camden pale and three huge tasty burgers around £26 which is a great deal! Waiter Jimmy was helpful and very smiley and swapped goats cheese for halloumi. Thanks so much for a fun cheap evening in York :)

I booked a table online easily. Greeted with a warm welcome on arrival and taken to our table for four. We ordered drinks and water to have with the meal. We all had burgers which were excellent and very nicely served. The wines chosen were very good. Coffees first rate - lates and flat white. Just the way to end... More

Really recommend Kennedys for lunch - we had the 2 for 1 burgers and they were so good. Service is excellent and nothing is too much trouble. Had our week old baby with us, no problems with pram and it was feeding friendly.

I took my Mum to Kennedy's for her Mother's Day lunch and I could not fault the staff/atmosphere/service or the food. The entire experience was absolutely outstanding.

We went for lunch and cocktails on a Saturday afternoon. Great ambience, busy but staff were very helpful in finding us a spot inside when the wind picked up on the terrace. Never had to wait to order and cocktails were flowing nicely. Would thoroughly recommend, and definitely go again.

Went in on Mother's Day with my wife and two grown up children. Ordered 4 black currant drinks with tap water. We ordered four roast dinners to be told they had ran out. Even though I was given a piece of paper with a Mothers Day three course special featuring either a roast or chicken tarragon. So after the no... More

We had a lovely sunday lunch today at Kennedys. The roast beef was really nice and the brownie with icecream was so good. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was great. We weren't rushed at all despite it being busy.
