About The Rattle Owl

The Rattle Owl is an independent 42 seat casual dining restaurant housed in a restored listed building. With a commitment to exceptional food, using the best local produce and an amazing selection of wine together matched perfectly with great service and atmosphere.

We also have beautiful and unique historic upstairs room for private dining and for business meetings. Please email for further details.

ResDiary allows you to book directly into our Reservations System for tables of up to 4 people.

For bookings of 5 or more people please send us an email: [email protected] or call us 01904 658 658.

Due to a number of large booking no shows, for bookings of 5 or more we now ask for a £10pp deposit. Ts&Cs on refunds apply if you cancel with prior notice.

Please inform us of any dietary requirements in advance. We can accommodate and adapt but it is much easier if we know beforehand rather than last minute on a busy Saturday night service.

Absolutely fabulous! We were a party of 10 (6 adults, 2 children, 1 infant & 1 baby). They could not have done more for us if they’d tried! The service was exceptional in every way. It is not an exaggeration to say the Sunday lunch is York’s best....not because I’ve tried all of York’s Sunday lunches; because it’s amongst the best Sunday lunch I’ve eaten anywhere! My beef, was cooked to perfection, it melted in the mouth. The Yorkshire pudding was huge, with a crispy top and a softer bottom, exactly how I like it! My Chocolate Delice was delicious, the right sized portion. I can’t criticise the food, staff nor restaurant in any way, however it is priced accordingly and so some people might find it a little more than they’d normally pay for a Sunday lunch. Personally I’d pay double, the quality was worth it! Thank you for making a special menu with my closet family a truly memorable experience. I will not hesitate to book the next time in York!

Came as a group of 3 for a late Sunday lunch. Staff were friendly but slightly disorganised and difficult to catch anyone's eye for service. The Sunday lunch menu was good, rather than great. Good value at £26 for 3 courses.

A really good place for a proper conversation due to the layout of the restaurant and lack of loud music. The only drawback is the chairs, which become uncomfortable after an hour or so. Cushions would make a big difference.

Very small portions and not very hot. Cluttered table. Overpriced for quality and portion size. Thinks it is a bit better than it actually is. Good cheese and coffee.

Did not like being seated to a loud group or so close to a younger couple made conversation difficult!

There was a large party upstairs which slowed service but this was explained to us and had minimal impact on our enjoyment. The food was excellent & worth a trip to York.

Booked well in advance, given table near door and very noisy from bar area and opposite coat store so constantly busy from that. Seemed very short staffed, food came in bits! When did arrive was nice

As a party of 8 we enjoyed a long, delicious lunch in the private dining room on the 2nd floor. A warm welcome, excellent and unobtrusive service and some outstanding cuisine (including a perfectly cooked roast), accompanied by a good selection of wines. A lovely experience and I would highly recommend the Rattle Owl
