After being told to 'Go find our own table' we then placed our order for food and drink and let's just say, we were forgotten about. No food or even our drinks sent to the table after waiting 45 minutes. Staff don't seem to be able to communicate at all. We won't be back here unfortunately...

Visited on the Halloween weekend after spotting the pumpkins, we both had the bacon and cheese burger and a glass of red wine each. Great atmosphere and food

Disappointed in the extreme. Always try and come here when I'm back in York after being here at Uni 20 years ago. This is the first time i've been let down. And how... Haughty staff who went out of their way to make me feel unwelcome. Had to wait on arrival whilst the server continually hovered in my way at... More

It does 'happy hour' mon-fri with a selection of meals at £6 and carafe of wine from £6. so really good value. The food is... More

Always stop here for at least one meal when visiting York. Steaks always perfectly cooked, and tasty alternative options (although I always have the steak!). Good value food of the tasty and robust persuasion rather than 'fine dining', quaint surroundings and attentive staff. House wine by the litre/half-litre carafe and decent wine list by bottle or glass. Continental draft beers... More

We just love this place, and went back twice in 2 days for lunch and evening meal. The food is great and generous portions too. We were really impressed with our evening meal and went back for lunch the following day and that was equally fabulous. Lovely staff,nice chilled atmosphere, really great little find .

Lovely atmosphere, rustic furniture with varied bric-a-brac. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere, this is a place for leisurely lunch rather than quick stop. We had small nachos, potato wedges and lasagne between three diners. All lovely. Cotes du Rhone was also tasty!

Thank kmlevitt
