    Went here for the Sunday carvery while on a recent visit to York - terrific! Every meat was well cooked and delivered. The Yorkshire puds, roasties and wonderful range of veggies were all great. Lovely booth table upstairs overlooking the river. Just what Sundays were made for! "

    We found it really easy to use the card.

    Service was really slow despite only 2-3 other tables being occupied.

    Starters good (prawns and chicken goujons)

    Fish and chips were decent. The steak pie was over seasoned with pepper and the pastry tough and thick. "

  • JACK said: "Ok.. But nothing to write home about
    Geared more for drinks than dining. Staff are unattentive and distracted chatting with each other. It's obviously a lively evening venue as our quiet lunch was quite busy by the time we finished dining. Coleslaw pots were small and fiddly and the salad mainly consisted of multi colour peppers. Dressed up but certainly didn't impress. The only saviour was our drinks and good company. Staff walk away without giving you a chance to communicate, nobody asked if we were ok and we needed the basics ie knives and forks. I sadly would recommend going next door or elsewhere as its very obvious why this place is discounting meals as it is so shabbily managed. Buck up your ideas folks as it would be so easy to achieve better! "
