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.
Excellent food and friendly service. Beautiful hotel, full of character.
Lovely afternoon tea for daughter's birthday. Particularly enjoyed the Yorkshire Platter.
Stunning 5 course dinner. Each course and the pre-meal offerings beautifully presented and some amazing tastes. A big menu but not one that left one feeling bloated. Excellent friendly and knowledgeable staff. A wonderful dining experience in an historic setting
Wonderful evening. The staff were attentive, informative and helpful.
A truly enjoyable experience. The food was delightful. The taste combinations were perfect and the presentation was superb. The service was excellent and well informed. We were told what each dish was and ingredients. We really enjoyed our experience.
Enjoyed by all of us very much. Impressive venue and afternoon tea excellent as was the service . In fact the whole experience was excellent and appreciated by all of us. Would recommend highly and hope to return again in the future.
This is a hidden gem.
Enjoyed our afternoon tea and the gardens are lovely to look round .The only negative was been charged over £8 for another pot of tea other afternoon teas we have been to in the city have just topped our tea up with no extra charge .
A wonderful meal in the private Minster Room for a special leaving dinner. Staff were excellent and very attentive. Food completely delicious.
Everything about our experience at the Bow restaurant was amazing. The staff were so friendly and attentive and the food was out of this world. The taste combinations proved the chef to be a leader in his field. We all enjoyed our evening very much. thank you to all both fronting the restaurant and behind the scenes.
Excellent food and service. Credit to all the staff. My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves on a rare night out. Thank you very much.
Excellent location ,friendly atmosphere and stunning hotel. Would definitley visit again the Gentlemans Tea was exceptional.
