“very poor evening meal”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Whilst on holiday in York (17th - 24th May 2014), we had booked an evening meal, followed by theatre. Theatre was excellent, however the meal before at the Treasurers House was very poor. When we booked on the phone before the holiday, the menu was a choice of 'Summer Chicken Casserole' or a Ravioli dish, followed by Caramel and Apple Tart, or a Fruit Meringue. I asked if I could have ice cream as I didn't like either of the dessert choices, but was told it was not possible as they do not hold a stock of ice cream. On the day the Chicken casserole turned out to be no more than a bowl of very watery soup, with a few (very few) chopped vegetables, and a few pieces of chicken. With it was a piece of bread and a plate of 'Green Leaves'. The Caramel and Apple Tart was served with ICE CREAM, which I was told was not available. The cost of this meal was £18.00 each. Extremely disappointing. I did complain to the Treasurers House, who said they were sorry, and someone would probably call me back, this never happened. So when we got home I sent an email to the National Trust, who did not bother to reply. Never Again - beware!

“A Grand Old House”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

This beautifully maintained house dates back to the earliest days of the York Minster, when sitting on the cathedral grounds, it housed the minster's treasurer. Ancient history, ghost tales and a nice tea room for lunch complement this special place.

“Ghosts in the cellars and attic tours!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Another fascinating and mind bending 'big' house in the centre of York. This is a National Trust property. Transformed by Mr Frank Green from a wreck to a period time piece this house is a mystery waiting to be unravelled. Your eyes really do deceive you in this quirky house. The ghost tour of the cellars is well worth doing as too is the tour of the attics, where the servants slept. The guides are wonderful, they 'know their stuff!' and they are wonderfully approachable and eager to impart the story of the house, the items in it and all about Mr Frank Green too. Excellent place to visit.
