Tasteless white baps, no choice of brown given.
Turkey 2 thin slices which doesn’t fill the batch, stuffing ball placed in the middle of the bap they can’t even be bothered to slice over the turkey. Cranberry sauce 25p more! Total of £4.50 for something that had no taste at all.

Bloody terrible!! We were looking for somewhere quick and tasty to eat whilst shopping and were tempted in by the lovely looking meats. I ordered 3 baps and brought 2 cans & 1 water....I nearly passed out when the rude waitress asked for over £18. We were charged 25p for apple sauce and 25p for the smallest piece of crackling. The order came wrong, staff were walking through the restaurant with bin bags and the music was blaring loud. It was complete day light robbery....will never eat there again.

I had eaten at the York Hog Roast some 3 months ago and been thoroughly disappointed but I thought I would give them a second chance, I wish I hadn't bothered. The joints of meat in the window look so tempting but once inside the very cramped cafe the temptation soon goes.
I ordered a pork bap with extra crackling and as I don't like dry food asked for some butter.
Not only did they not have any butter when it came it was without the crackling and as dry as a bone. The nice young waitress took it back and suggested some gravy, the bap returned with 4 small pieces of what can only be described as "pork scratchings" and a bap so soggy with gravy as to be inedible. Needless to say the York Hog roast will not be getting a third chance.
