Tykes is probably our local good quality restaurant, and we've been here several times, starting in 2005. Our latest visit was just prior to York moving into Tier 3, and coincided with a 'Steak Night'. The food, and service were typically great. Mindful of the challenges being faced at this time, we thought that the restaurant was very cold again. Overall, an enjoyable evening in a 'safe' environment. Can highly recommend.
A great meal, only lacking in a bit of atmosphere due to the current restrictions.
The tables are well spaced out so we felt relaxed and we enjoyed our fillet steak it was cooked to perfection compliments to the chef. The rest of the staff were were very helpful and friendly. We have booked for New year's eve we're looking forward to it.
A beautiful place, lovely atmosphere, and great staff. I also have to say extremely COVID safe.
Never any complaints. Always good food, good service. Highly recommend
Excellent all round dining experience considering the unusual circumstances we are currently experiencing.
Thank you for another lovely evening of great food, friendly and helpful staff and service with a smile Wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and looking forwards to coming again in ‘21!! Robert & Rosie
Food and service were excellent.
After getting married at Sandburn Hall two years ago, we booked tykes to celebrate our anniversary meal. Lovely food and excellent service as always!
Graat food and service. We will be back and would high recommend to our family and friends. Thank you
Had a delicious and generous Sunday roast at Tykes. Piles of beef and vegetables and the gravy was delicious too. Service was excellent and friendly as always. Fully recommend
What a fantastic place that makes you feel safe in these strange times. The staff are very attentive and the food and drink are 5 star's. food options for my self with a gluten intolerance has alot more verity then most restaurants and the fact that as well as gf marked you have others that can be made gf with the *. So thank you all very much. And we will be back soon.
The only reason I didn't put 5 for atmosphere was it was dead as a door nail. Absolutely not the restaurants fault. Damn Covid! I hope you can keep going and we will be back in happier times. Good luck. Xx
Always get a good friendly service there. Food is good and good variety of choices.
The food is excellent. The staff are always friendly and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Tykes.
It's a difficult time for restaurants but the staff remain cheerful and helpful all the time.
Lovely food, friendly helpful staff, great ambience
The venue is excellent as is the food. The staff are always welcoming and give first class table service. In the current COVID 19 situation we always feel safe with hand gel a plenty and social distancing measures strictly observed.
Despite the necessary COVID-19 requirements the restaurant service was first class, the food was very good and particularly with the Steak Night and Festive Menu offers on at the moment very good value for money. Also a tip of the hat to them for the way they have decorated the restaurant for Christmas making the whole experience very enjoyable indeed.
Steak night on a Saturday fabulous idea and if so again we will defiantly be there
Lovely warm welcoming staff, and wonderful food, thoroughly recommend
Best steak I’ve had in years
We always come here when we stay at Griffon Forest - food standard always amazing. Staff very friendly too!
Best steak we have had in a few years
We enjoyed our food at Tykes. Good selection of food to choose from. Served hot and the service is always polite and friendly. The only downfall is we’ve been twice and found the restaurant is cool especially the breeze around the legs. We did mention this but told that they had all the heating on. We were pleased to warm up in the car on our journey back to York.
