Very average but not bad not great either , service was good , not sure if I would return, I personally found the beef dry and tough I think they truly rely on tourism

Our first evening in York and looking around for somewhere to eat our eyes were drawn to a carvery counter through the window.The restaurant was empty and remained that way for most of our stay .We had a 3 course dinner for £18.95 which we thought was good value as was the service. There was a selection of 4 starters... More

We tried here on a cold wet Sunday as we fancied a lovely warm/hot roast dinner. Not a cheap place. Roast meat was ok, Yorkshire pudding too well done for us, roasties Luke warm, mash tasteless and Luke warm, not a great choice of veg Luke warm again. We left colder than when we entered. I wouldn't try this place... More

This is a perfectly reasonable carvery and their early bird deal between 5pm to 8pm is reasonable value. The basics were good - the meat was of a good quality and there was an excellent selection of veg - although it could have been warmer. But it was described as seasonal - not sure broad beans are seasonal at the... More

We had a good traditional carvery meal here. Beef, Yorkshire pudding, gravy to sink a boat with, and plenty of vegetables. I had a few disappointing roast potatoes. My friends had Turkey and gammon. They like their food steaming hot, however it is a carvery buffet so it was hot to me. But that was our only grumble. 2 courses... More

Called in here on a day out to York and we weren't disappointed. The cavery was excellent and very good value at £10.95. They do a shoppers' special at lunchtime which is also very reasonable. The ambiance is great, the staff are lovely and the food is really good so do try it next time you're in York.

The nut roast was unquestionably the worst meal I've ever had the mis pleasure to be served. It's safe to say that I will not return in this restaurant again.

Popped in for dessert after a lovely Nando's. Toffee Sundae pretty great. 😜😜😜 Sticky toffee pudding dry & clearly a cheapo ping pudding - not impressed. Not recommended at all - no wonder the place wasn't very full. Should have gone to the Crepe stall outside Nando's 😕 Only gave 1 star cos of the sundae.

Stopped here after walking by and seeing the carvery on display!We had been looking for a pub doing Sunday Roast, but he food looked so good we went in. An excellent carvery and good homemade deserts. Good service and good value for money, highly recommended.

We were staying overnight in York and wanted a good British meal rather than the modern British stuff that most places in York are serving up at the moment, take a look outside most eating establishments in York and you would be forgiven if you felt they all have the same chef as the menus are very identical in whats...
