The Bow Room restaurant dining experience was truly remarkable. After discussing our food tastes, head chef Joe created 9 sumptuous "tasting menu" dishes which took us on a journey of sensory delight. Artfully presented with intricately woven flavours, each different dish left us marvelling. The historic Bow Room looks onto the stunning gardens at Grays Court where some of the evening's ingredients even originated! Staff were charming and professional. Dining here is an experience not to be missed.

The whole experience at The Bow Room was just fantastic, from the chef introducing himself and asking about our dietary needs/likes/dislikes until the last course was. The service was great and each dish in the 9-course blind tasting was a delicious surprise.

It was really lovely, delighted that we got more than one scone each, and it was really nice to be able to sit in the beautiful garden.

York is renowned for food and ‘The Bow’ is the best of the best. A superb feast of nine courses with the chef visiting each customer prior to the meal to discuss the menu; a nice touch not even the four seasons outside Oxford does this. My only criticism is that a utter mix was served, plain butter should have been served alongside – otherwise wonderful.

The service was second to non. The lovely chap who served us, saved you from us writing a very negative review on trip advisor. The afternoon tea we received was very poor in terms of sandwiches - 2 finger size sandwiches one just cucumber. Very poor indeed. We have visited you many times and have brought with us relatives and friends. But not anymore. I would no longer recommend your establishment. Which is such a shame as your building and gardens are beautiful.

Simply superb! Outstanding food in a beautiful setting. The attention to detail and the level of service is exceptional and perfectly balanced. Enough to enhance your experience but not at all intrusive. The serving staff are incredibly knowledgeable and having the opportunity to chat directly to the Chef at the beginning and end of the meal is a real treat, allows the whole experience to be fully personalised and (for us) ensures that we could let Chef know just how much we enjoyed the 'kitchens' efforts and also to pick his brains a little! Any concerns of a pretentious environment were completely unfounded. Highly recommended.
