    I ate here recently just for a quick lunch as I had seen the restaurant had become available on tastecard. Without a doubt it had to be the best burger I've eaten in York, I had the Black and Blue burger which was a niced size patty, with a good helping of pulled beef brisket, and a nice bit of blue cheese on top served with fries. Great selection of beer on tap, and service was excellent. Tastecard was really easy to use, I actually only rang 10 minutes ahead to see if I could come and use it and that was no problem. Will definitely be back in the future to try a full 3 courses. "
