This is a smart bar offering a good range of drinks especially cocktails. The espresso martini was very good and the negroni packed a punch ! The bar is smart and the staff helpful. Prices are not low but this is York !

The cocktails were amazing. However, the food was a bit of a disappointment for £13.50 I won’t be having the steak and ale pie again. The gravy featured on this was extremely salty and due to it being all over my food I couldn’t eat...More

Visited Banyan York today for the first time and had the most amazing prosecco afternoon tea. The food was one of the best afternoon teas we've ever had and Josh, who served us could not have been more helpful. Will definitely be visiting again.More
