Food was delicious. All staff so friendly! Drinks reasonably priced My all round favourite place in town Highly recommend
A brilliant venue and a great experience
Booked for my daughters birthday, we had a lovely evening. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
The look & feel is great, the food came out quick & hot but the only thing that let it down was the table service the staff was nice but no one look after the tables or are table we had to ask to order go to the bar to ask for drinks etc.....
My daughter and her friends had a great time at Escapologist in Selby celebrating her birthday. The World of Wizardary Escape Rooms were great fun and the food was to a good standard. The staff were very attentive and did all they could to make sure everything ran smoothly.
Helpful friendly staff, great atmosphere and good food.
Hi, I wouldn’t usually leave a review but we were really surprised with our meal at the escapologist. First of all, we sat down and after 15 minutes of no service we had to gain someone’s attention to get some menus. Things followed in a similiar pattern, no one ever asked about drinks, worst of all however was even after asking for cultery twice, the cutlery didn’t actually arrive until 5 minutes into starters, whereby obviously we were halfway through. Some of the food was excellent (halloumi sticks and beef salad), however again some of the food was so poor. The peri peri chicken burgers tasted 100% plain and after looking at the, they were literally plain chicken fillets. We did mention this to a manager who offered to change them immediately but after how long we had waited, and considering our other two guests had their food, we didn’t have time to wait any longer. It was obvious there was a large christening taking place and I’m sure the kitchen was busy. But we were out for a birthday meal and at no point did any of the staff ever bother approaching us, it was genuinely bizzare. We were even more surprised that the manager did not take it upon himself to make up for the lack of service after we complained. It should be stated he was super polite and apologetic however!
What great fun highly recommend
Overall service great my daughter and her friends had a fabulous time! They didn’t make it out of the escape room but thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks.
Very nice day for the bottomless brunch however service was Very poor!
Fantastic party venue. The trail room was great and good fun. The staff were really helpful and made the party easy to organise. They were very accommodating! The children had a great time and I would definitely book another event here. If the second bar (in the reserved area) had been open, that would have been perfect! I think you’d have made lots more money on drinks that way too!
Lovely staff but no one seemed to know what they were doing. Food arrived cold but was offered a refund of that particular item
Went for bottomless brunch yesterday and we had a fantastic time, food was beaut and our waitress Georgia was fantastic she was fast, friendly and really helped us have a great time. Would definitely recommend this to everyone it’s great value for money
Very impressed with the service received from our group booking
Very disappointing. Would certainly not recommend it.
lovely food, lovely environment, friendly staff, really enjoyed our visit :)

Great place! Been a couple of times with the escape rooms and work party. The only thing that’s lets them down is the food side. Food tastes great but staff are worked too hard! They are stressed and food comes at different times or wrong. Maybe more staff and chefs would help.
The staff are lovely and the bar/restaurant is nicely decorated but the food wasn’t great. It felt quite greasy.
The family and I would like to thank you and all the staff for the two wonderful 18th birthday party the food was wonderful and the staff are great .
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.
