Friendly staff and great menu choice
The service was extremely slow but we were the only ones eating! We waited 50 minutes after ordering to getting food. One of my bug bears when out with children is places that bring adults food out before the kids! Children should always be served first, especially after a wait! The bar was very quiet for a bank holiday Monday! Could do with a little more choice on the menu however, my carnivore platter was good! The ribs were quite lean though and didn’t have much meat on them, tasty though! The onion rings were home made and lovely! I could have just eaten them alone!
Busy bank holiday and the restaurant service was lacking - literally lacking some drinks and there were no chips! Nachos had little actual meat or cheese on and when we mentioned this were sort of offered more but grandad had already eaten as many tortilla chips as he could manage. Not much of an apology and nothing taken off the bill for a meal that cost more than the pizza but was mainly crisps. We queried this too and got a shrug and a reminder that more had been offered. The issue was not really with the poor meal but how it was dealt with. We offered to pay half the cost of the meal and that was agreed. We'd had a fab time in the escape room and this took the shine off. I think it's a new restaurant and these are hopefully teething problems but you should tell staff that people will forgive problems and even be more positive if the service is good.
Super place with great food, lovely staff and an awesome style
Went here for my 18th with my friends. It’s was a really good night would recommend this to everyone. Did the world of wizardry room great challenge for all ages.
We had a lovely mother’s day meal. Amazing food and great service
Came in for Mother’s Day. Absolutely amazing food. And the atmosphere/decor are brilliant. Staff couldn’t be more accommodating and helpful. Plus my mother loved it which got me brownie points on Mother’s Day.
Originally I made a telephone booking for 5 people early that week for the restaurant only on Mother's Day and the chap who answered was very helpful and told me that Table 11 (a booth by the window) was available. The booking was quickly confirmed in an email. However, I had concerns that the email said we should vacate our table within an hour. I visited the venue in person and the young lady present assured me that our booking time could be extended to 2 hours. On the day itself about 3 hrs notice I requested the an extra place i.e. 6 people in total which I was told was fine. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Will certainly be visiting again!
Cracking venue, fantastic staff, beautiful food, what more can I say? My wife and son love it as much as I do.
Great atmosphere, fantastic food, good selection of drinks and an absolutely spot on service. Me and my girlfriend have become regulars over the last six months and could not recommend it higher - best bar / restaurant in Selby. Just wish you’d stay opens bit later 😂 I’d be able to pop in after work then! 😂
Lovely place lovely food just needs some finishing touches and it would be perfect such as wine list on the tables and jugs of water offered with wine etc etc
The Escape Room was excellent but unfortunately there was only one staff member having to look after the bar and restaurant when we arrived for our pre-booked meal on Sunday. We saw how she was struggling with other customers and decided to share some nachos and eat elsewhere. The Olive Branch in Selby took us in and it was brilliant. Had been offered 10% discount on food after booking Escape Room, but didn't get it on the nachos we ordered and felt bad for the one staff member so did not pursue.
My 8 year old daughter had her birthday party here. It was fantastic, she and 4 friends went into the wizard escape room. They all loved it. The staff were fantastic right from the booking of the party to the very end. I would recommend this over and over again. So much so that I am going to book a room for myself!!!
Highly recommend escapologist lovely staff very helpful great atmosphere you look gorgeous venue.
Lovely tasty food and very helpful staff.
Brilliant night, 8 of us catching up. We had food and did girls against boys in the escape rooms. What an amazing night, we laughed, we got frustrated, we laughed again, we drank fizz, we ate desserts that smoked. Cant wait for another night out here.
I would recommend that the kids parties are for no younger than 10 and a max of 4 if it’s all children. Staff were very helpful on the night. The look and feel of the place is lovely. The escape room experience was really fun. Organisation of the party could have been communicated a bit better. I was incorrectly informed of a couple of matters but these were resolved and the email booking confirmation didn’t match what I had book. Overall, I would recommend.
Food very nice Staff very friendly
Really impressed, all the staff were top notch.
Absolutely amazing! Best sunday roast going
Great fun night in the escape room followed by great food.
Party of 6 escape room & dinner & drinks - was such a fun night. All the staff were brilliant. Food was really yummy & excellent value. We will be back again very soon!
We loved the escape room and the guy who introduced it and guided us was great, really set the scene and added to the experience. Can't wait to do another one!
We love everything about this place. Just had my birthday party here. It was fabulous! They had even produced a cocktails list all themed on my name!
Was late getting into our room but made up with us by giving us free drinks for us all downstairs food really gd would definitely be going back there again set up the room really well for my daughter's baby shower she loved it
