Absolutely fabulous food here. Quality and service second to none. From someone who is very particular. Piping hot too which is a "thing" of mine. Can't wait to return. Thankyou

We liked this place a lot, the game mixed grill went down well and the fish was well cooked, but we don't like having to pay extra for vegetables.

Reserved a table for a group of friends and I was not disappointed. My wife and I opted for the a la carter menu and we probably had the two stand out main courses on the entire menu. I had the venison, pigeon and wild boar sausage which was simply excellent. My wife had the fillet steak and steak pudding... More

The food that we had here was just spectacular. I had the lamb, sweet potato mash and seasoned vegetables which were all perfectly cooked and presented. The atmosphere was very welcoming, the staff were always on hand when we needed them and overall it was a lovely evening. Would highly recommend.

When I booked online for Valentine's Day I got an immediate call back for a £10 deposit and information that it was a set menu. The menu looked lovely and so I booked. Arriving, we were sat by the door. I thought this would be a problem but as the restaurant was fully booked, as soon as all the guests... More

We had a delicious meal at the Lime House. There was a very welcome fire to sit next to! I chose the savoury baklava, which was very good, followed by a divine lemon posset. The food was excellent quality but also very good value.

Followed by the chocolate fondant sponge, which was eaten in a flash! Both from the set menu. I had a starlet of gravadlax tube filled with crab... More

We have lunched here before but as we were staying for two nights at the excellent B+B York, we were able to have an evening meal on my husband's birthday. It is no exaggeration to say the whole meal was absolute perfection from the soup to the dessert. I am not a 'foodie' but I do know good cooking when... More
