Source is an innovative fresh food restaurant on Castlegate in the heart of the ancient city of York. We literally have something for everyone and specialise in slow cooked meats, super foods and tasty vegetarian cuisine.
The confidence of the staff was welcome and refreshing as he was very competent and natural in his approach to us. Nachos were huge and delicious and really enjoyed the whole Experience.
I came about a month prior to this and had the vegan ribs and so did the person I was with and I have to say we were blown away. The ribs were cooked to perfection and had the texture of meat falling off the bone perfect sweet sticky glaze. The cornbread was a beautiful singular piece of crumbly bread and there was nice salty juicy crunchy pickles. However! The second time I came (Dec 28) I had to go back for the same thing cause it was so delicious. But! It was sooopo disappointing. Honestly. It's almost like you tried to make it cheaper to produce everything was of a worse quality. The ribs were over kneaded and spongy and they were cooked in a big tray so only one side was crispy and glazed. Very disappointing seitan. The glaze was wayyyy to spicy to. the point where i couldnt eat any more, my boyfriend and the vegans next to us also commented on the overly spicy sauce.The pickles were big and soft and cut into halves which ruined the beautiful previous combination of the salty crunchy pickles and the sweet glaze. The cornbread was much too sweet, so sweet that after eating the spicy glaze, the bread actually tasted like cake which put me off a bit and I had to leave the cornbread. The previous time I had a really nice savoury singular bun, however this one was cooked on mass and cut into slices and along with its spongy texture made or seem even more like cake. Overall I was really disappointed with this visit after being so impressed the first time and I suggest toy should probably make the directions for the recipes to be stricter because whoever made it the second time I are it completely ruined your food.
Amazing food, very friendly and helpful staff and lovely restaurant. Great vegan options and actual choice too! Will definitely be back!
Good selection of vegetarian food. Tried BBQ jack fruit, was great. Restaurant owner was friendly. Had a lovely evening to celebrate a birthday.
Great service and the food was yummy!! Fab vegan options!
The food was amazing, the staff were all lovely and very understanding about changes to our booking. So lovely to see such a good range of vegan options
Really enjoyed the food and drink, except the To-fish and chips could have done with more seasoning / flavour. Great service and loved the place but our table by the door was really draughty with people coming in and out. A little bit pricey for what it was, but only a little not extortionate. We’d definitely come again!
Great evening with tasty food, friendly service and a bustling atmosphere. Will definitely come back! Few small comments - the chips were not seasoned like our first visit and the tray dishes were a little dry without any sauce. However, tasted great and the fries were easily salted. Thanks for a lovely meal!
Our first visit, really enjoyed it, great food and staff. Thanks!
Tasty food, good atmosphere, not too long wait time
Good range of vegan options. Good, friendly service.
The new year taster menu was excellent. We had two vegans and two non vegans in our group and everyone enjoyed equally. Great job, I look forward to more events like this!
My wife and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary together at source. My wife is transitioning to Vegan and I was recommended this would be the ideal place to take her. We booked our stay in York basted on this recommendation. We were not disappointed, service was efficient and friendly, the Vegan food was lovely, we had the 'sticky ribs' and Crispy chicken'. The slow cooked meat tray was also delicious. Due to a computer glitch we were given a widow seat which we didn't mind, however on arrival we were delighted to be given 2 complimentary glasses of prosecco which was a lovely surprise. We would definitely return and recommend.
Service staff excellent lovely meal but food a little slow. Would happily visit again - nachos were spot on!
This was a fantastic place to eat - especially for vegetarians. The choice was wide and the staff very friendly and attentive. The only reason for three stars on service is it took nearly 45 mins from ordering to getting our starter. The host was very apologetic and offered us a free drink. I can only presume something went wrong with the ordering. I would return here.
The food was delicious.
Varied and imaginative menu, love the menu parti for vegetarians.
As always we were served in a polite and friendly manner. The food was delicious and generously positioned. We were made to feel welcome.
Gorgeous food, excellent service, beautiful atmosphere, made my family feel very welcome
Food was absolutely lovely, really interesting and flavoursome. Only slight issue was due to the open kitchen, our clothes and coats smelled really strongly of food when we left. Great service and overall really good experience.
Excellent dinner with food for everyone. My wife of a veggie, and I’m very much a meat eater and we were both catered for with an excellent and diverse menu. Can’t wait to come back soon.
The main problem with the meal, was that we had to wait 60 minutes for the meal, with the excuse that the "ratatouille" took 20 minutes.
Food and service excellent.
Have been a number of timed, never disappointed. Food always amazing. Great menu.
Excellent service and amazing food which catered to a gluten and dairy free diet too! Really impressed and would definitely return.
