We were visiting York for the weekend, and decided to come here on our first night. It is the most beautiful restaurant I have ever been to! Was not expecting it when we booked it for our anniversary meal. Staff were all really friendly and helpful, and could not fault our meal here at all! Wonderful!

We had a wonderful family lunch here. The food was good, the service was polite and prompt. The restaurant was clean and beautiful inside. The kids meals are epic: starter, main, dessert, drink and babycino!
