The whole experience was great and as it was to be the start of a wonderful w/e for my partner it worked as she enjoyed the afternoon tea. She also said the people the were welcoming and took time to explain her question about the place. Thank you for a great time.

A stunning setting with fantastic service. We were really looked after very well indeed and I'd have no hesitation in recommending it over and above the other fine dining restaurants in York and the surrounding areas. I wish I'd discovered it before. I don't know why you don't have a Michelin star!

Oh my goodness!! What a wonderful time we had at The Bow Room at Grays Court. This was the first time we have visited. We booked a dinner to celebrate our daughter graduating with a Master of Psychology Degree and we weren't disappointed. The day before the meal Thomas rang me and offered to set up a table in the "Library" as it was for a special occasion. We could not have had a more wonderful evening! The setting was beautiful (lit by candles), there were comfortable chairs to relax in prior to the meal, the staff were very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the food and the history of Grays Court, we felt immediately at our ease and the food was probably the best we've ever tasted. Thank you so much to all the staff for providing us with such a memorable evening - one we will never forget! We will definitely be back!!

A wonderfully atmospheric hotel in the centre of town right next to the minster. Rooms are very tastefully decorated and well appointed. The restaurant is of exceptional quality with great service wonderful food and a good wine list. The long gallery lounge is a great place for afternoon tea or pre-dinner drinks.

The only minor criticism I could make in an otherwise faultless evening was that the 2 sweet courses were chocolate based, and I don't like chocolate puddings!!

Absolutely amazing! The food was fantastic--each course better than the last. The atmosphere is so charming and the service impeccable (and the prices are extremely affordable). I would 100% recommend The Bow Room.

From the moment we entered Greys Court we were made to feel at home, the staff are friendly polite and professional. Every thing about Greys Court is luxurious from the Jo Malone Basel and lime scents that greet you in every room to the Clarins products in the bathrooms. Our room hade amazing views overt York Minster, priceless. Two days after our visit we are still talking about the delightful food in the Bow Room a true tastebuds experience.

Menu not very adventurous. We thought it was going to be a tasting menu with wine pairings, so may be we should have investigated more. Having said that, you have a great team working front of house.
