About The Bow Room Restaurant
From a relaxed catch up with friends to an exceptional meal over a bottle of English sparkling wine; good food plays a central role in our work here at our 2 AA Rosette restaurant The Bow Room at Grays Court. With seasonal ingredients sourced from the highest quality suppliers, our innovative team of chefs guarantee a dining experience like no other. Exceptional dishes come together with the peaceful beauty of our historic building for an evening that will stay with you forever.
We visited Grays Court and the Bow Room restaurant on a Monday night to celebrate a friends 60th. We had the library for 7 of us as we wanted it to be just our party. The hotel itself is lovely, all wooden floors and great antiques. Adds to the atmosphere. And it was lovely and warm. We were worried as the weather outside was so cold. The library is beautiful. We had our own table, comfy sofas for a pre-meal drink and coffee afterwards. The food was fantastic, we had the 5 course tasting menu. One of our party said the duck was the best she'd ever eaten. We started with Yorkshire sparkling wine which got us off to a great start, had wine and ended with cheese, port and coffees. The staff are friendly and attentive without being over the top. All in all had a great time and would recommend to anyone. I've given 4 stars for value as we all wish things were cheaper than they are but actually it's not bad at all. Will definitely return. Many thanks to Rhiannon for organising so well.
We had a lovely day for my sisters baby shower. Sarah and the team we’re attentive, friendly and organised. Would definitely return and recommend.
Great experience. Absolutely amazing food and great atmosphere. Will certainly come back to try new dishes.
Lovely atmosphere and surroundings with excellent customer service. Food excellent too although quite expensive
One of the nicest afternoon teas we have had in York. We are working our way through as many as possible. Very relaxed afternoon Staff quite happy to leave us be to chat No rush to leave.
The staff were attentive and careful not to be too fussy. A very professional team. The food was delicious - the ambience perfect.
Excellent experience. Great food. Innovatively created and very well presented!
The food was amazing, I will never forget the dining experience, my only criticism is the extra charge for our pre dining cocktails when we were ushered into the bar & a charge for coffee at the end of the meal, 2 small items that I think could have been swallowed by the overall cost, but the food was second to none.
Another beautiful afternoon tea in such a fabulous setting. Can't wait for another visit.
What a beautiful place, wonderful staff and fantastic cuisine. One of the best culinary evenings of my life!
We thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea in the library, a perfectly relaxing and most comfortable venue for tea. The jams were bursting with flavor!
Lovely experience from walking in the door. Friendly attentive service and wonderful afternoon tea. Dietary requirements were no issue and certainly did not impact the quality of what was offered. Will visit again
Food was amazing. Ambiance and attention to detail fantastic. The most amazing meal I have had in a long time. I will definitely be back next time I visit York. Thank you.
The food, wine pairings, and service were outstanding! What a talented team! I enjoyed the experience very much and hope to return in the near future!
We had such a relaxing time made possible by friendly experienced staff. However I had been before with a friend and was surprised to pay extra for more tea. That isn't charge at other similiar hotels.
Thank you to all the staff From walking through the door the welcome was lovely Food and service second to none Definitely return 10/10 Thank you
Absolutely wonderful place - great service, wonderful food and atmosphere! Cannot recommend enough for an afternoon tea. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you very much again!
Went to celebrate my mums birthday, had an amazing day. Every member of staff I spoke to was happy, polite and kind and made my day even better. The chefs/bakers create an amazing platter. We enjoyed our visit that much that we are intending on coming once a month.
First class service. We had 8 course tasting menu which was one of the best meals we have ever had. It was up there with the best. Grays Court gets better and better each time we visit. Warm and Friendly atmosphere, the staff are most accommodating and helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending the hotel and the restaurant Donna & Barry Shaw
The most convivial ambience, we were so well looked after from the moment we walked in the door, the food was delicious and the five course with wine pairing was so enjoyable. I loved the food, the cocktails, the relaxed atmosphere and the decor. Book it!!
We reserved a table for four for afternoon tea at the last minute. We sat in the library, a very pleasant room with good comfortable seating. Our company was good as was the afternoon tea and we spent an enjoyable 3 hours under no pressure at all from staff. We were well attended by staff but not at all intrusive. Overall a fine experience.
The venison and duck courses were outstanding; a real treat!
Possibly one of the best meals I have eaten anywhere. I travel extensively and consider myself a foodie. Exquisite taste to creative dishes, one better than the last. Everything was fantastic - the setting, the food, the wine and the service
Had afternoon tea and a gentleman afternoon tea. Very nice, VERY filling. Breakfast very nice as well.
