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 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

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.

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.
