Good main menu, lots of wine choice. Desserts less wonderful. Service prompt and efficient. Always worth the walk out of the city centre.

The wine flights were a nice touch. More draught beer or some beer flights would be even better...

Serious food in a relaxed venue that does not take itself too seriously. Great wine list as well! Shame we were only visiting York as would definately go again!!!

Attended with a large group at the weekend, it was lovely to have the top big room to ourselves, the staff were all friendly and patient with such a big group. Thank you for a great meal!

Pigeon starter was tough, it looked better than it tastes. Chicken supreme was dry and bland. Lamb rack was raw and needed to be sent back. Wine was lovely. Nice atmosphere.

Second time we’ve visited the press kitchen, 1st time was super couldn’t fault it! Although this time was still lovely the food wasn’t as nice as the first time, and the service wasn’t as friendly and we didn’t get asked how we enjoyed our meal

Excellent food, interesting concept of 3 wines to try. Good music -but not too loud so could hear each other speak. Staff very helpful and pleasant.

we did enjoy our food very much although oddly the salmon in my starter was not smoked ??!!., still enjoyed the poached salmon but unexpected and no explanation offered. Main course chicken with scallop was delicious. Would definitely return.

Food excellent but felt that we were a bit rushed through the meal and staff disinterested. It’s about the whole experience in our opinion.

No bread with starters (pate) so we ordered as a side but then told no bread in stock. Lamb was a very fatty cut. Waitress lovely but overworked so we waited a long time for our drinks, finished our meals before so then cancelled our drinks order.

It was very smokey when we arrived which I guess is an occupational hazard of the open kitchen layout and it did clear fairly quickly. My partner found the high wooden chairs a bit uncomfortable by the end of the meal so we'll make sure to ask for a regular table next time we book. And there will be a next time, because the food was exceptional. It was as good a quality as we've ever eaten anywhere and excellent value for money. We loved the jukebox and its brilliant selection of music and the service was also excellent. It was our first visit but most definitely won't be our last.

The service was generally quite poor. We waited more than half an hour after ordering and one prompting for our drinks to arrive, and over an hour with several reminders for the food, and the restaurant didn’t appear to be particularly busy or full. When it arrived, the food was mixed in quality. Some meals were good, but one (dirty rarebit) was inedible, and another came with nuts to a nut allergy sufferer despite this not being clear from the menu or normal for the type of meal (kedgeree). In fairness to the staff, when we complained they dealt with it professionally and courteously, and this did help to alleviate some of our bad feelings about the situation, but we will not be visiting again.
