  • Betty's, St. Helen's Square

    4 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    Tell anyone you are visiting York and it's quite likely that they will tell you to go to Betty's and have a fat rascal. So I figured on my 3rd trip to York that I should finally visit although I did pass on the fat rascal. We went around noon and there was a short queue, if you didn't mind eating downstairs with no windows you could walk right in...

  • The Hare & Hounds at Staxton

    Scarborough Restaurants

    We enjoyed an evening meal at The Hare & Hounds in Staxton during a weekend visit to Scarborough in June 2015. This traditional countryside pub, housed in a 16th Century coaching house, is located on the main A64 road a few miles outside Scarborough. We were staying at The Ganton Greyhound, just a few minutes' drive from The Hare & Hounds. It was...

  • Magpie Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    Whitby Restaurants

    They have the reputation of serving the world's best fish and chips. Unfortunately, that reputation has spread around very far which means that you can queue for quite a long time before you get a table. If you want a table for classic lunch or dinner times, reserve ahead or prepare to wait – especially during the summer season and on...

  • The Masons - Hopperton

    Knaresborough Restaurants

    We heard that after a period of closure The Masons at Hopperton was under new management. The new people have refurbished the main bar area which is now a lovely restaurant and they call the back bar their dog friendly snug. As dog owners we are always on the lookout for a nice dog walk near a good place for lunch or dinner. At lunch they do huge...

    5 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    Meltons on Ravenscroft Road is one of York's top restaurants for fine dining. Meltons Too cafe/bar/bistro is owned by the same people and has a well-deserved reputation for very good food at reasonable prices. It's housed in a lovely 17th building, has several floors, nooks and crannies and very comfortable seating. We met there for a family...

  • The Welcome Inne

    Scarborough Restaurants

    During a visit to Scarborough in June 2015, we were looking for somewhere to have lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We would, of course, be having fish and chips...it was just a case of where. Like any English seaside resort, Scarborough possesses dozens and dozens of fish and chip shops; some just offering takeaway, but many also offering a sit...

  • The Duke of York

    4 out of 5 stars

    Whitby Restaurants

    Whitby is almost as famous for its Scampi as for its Vampires A type of Langoustine, also known as the Dublin Bay Prawn; no trip to the coastal town would be complete without sampling some of this breaded fishy goodness! The Duke Of York is considered one of the best pubs in Whitby to get your teeth into this local delicacy, and at the bottom of...

    York Restaurants

    My friend and I are a big fan of Betty's. Please see Betty's York link for for further information about Betty's Cafe Tea Rooms. We wanted to visit their second cafe, Betty's Stonegate, this time round. The cafe is situated on Stonegate, one of the medieval streets, and housed in a listed building. On the ground floor there is small shop selling a...

  • El Piano

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    When Colin (Britannia2) organized our VT meeting, he proposed the El Piano for our venue for dinner, and I was very happy about it because it looked like a fantastic vegan restaurant - and so it was! The food really belonged to some of the tastiest I have eaten in a restaurant so far, and I equally enjoyed the colourful interior and the friendly...

  • Michael's Brasserie @ Galtres Lodge...

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    On every trip to London I've been dying to try a tradtional roast with Yorkshire pudding, I figured York was as good a place as any to try it. Michael's Brasserie is attached to a hotel in York, Galtres Lodge, and they had several chalkboards outside announcing the daily specials including roast with Yorkshire pudding. Since we were eating early,...

  • Royal Oak pub

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    We ate here on VT members Josiejo's recommendation on her York pages. We needed a venue that could supply plain English food for elderly relatives and vegetarian food for younger relatives. The food is very good and the standard high - the vegetables are fresh and the quality of meat good too. Reasonable prices at £5.50 for a main course. This is a...

    York Restaurants

    Ask is a part of a UK wide chain of restaurants but each has it's own particular style. Ask in York is situated in the former Assembly rooms which is a Grade I listed building. It was designed by Lord Burlington and is one of the earliest neo classical buildings in Europe and one of the most influential pieces of architecture of the early 18th...

  • Goji Vegetarian Restaurant

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    Goji's reminded me of my first vegetarian meals - in the homes of students and alternative types in my home town of Leamington Spa. These houses would all smell of curried lentils and joss sticks, and while the aromas in Goji are much fresher, the ambiance is the same. If scruffy carpets and wobbly tables don't put you off, you can enjoy a...

  • Spurriergate Centre Restaurant

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    The Spurriergate Centre is located in a former church (St Michael's Spurriergate). The main part of it is a restaurant where you can have very affordable, but tasty and homemade food. There are many tables and a counter where you can order, everything is done by volunteers and the food is really fresh and just like if it was done at home! I had a...

  • Punch Bowl, Stonegate

    3 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    It was only after I returned from York that I've read that the Punch Bowl was part of Whetherspoons. It certainly doesn't look like any Whetherspoons place I've ever seen before and this is partly because it was and still is a pub, rather than an old bank turned into a theme bar. The place is good for a few drinks after a long day's walk around...

  • Teddy Bear Tearooms

    York Restaurants

    The shop and tea rooms are housed in a 15th Century medieval building. We had a quick browse around the shop earlier on in the day but we decided to return and have a coffee in its tea room. It was nice to have a coffee there and look out onto Stonegate and admire its historic buildings. It's a perfect place to stop and have a drink whilst...

    York Restaurants

    A great dining out experience with delicious food and pleasant ambience. Everything I tried was delicious. If you like fish, I would recommend: Fresh Mussels flavoured with Rosemary, Garlic & Vermouth for the starter and Spiced Monkfish with Crab and Prawn Boulangere and Sauteed Cabbage for the main course.

    They are actually a butchers, supplying many well known London restaurants, however, on Sundays they put out a hog roast, I had beef with mustard and fried onions for about £2.50. They also have pork and turkey on offer. Very nice.

  • Lendal Cellars

    York Restaurants

    In what used to be the Lord Mayor's wine-cellar, with tables in the brick tunnels. There's an outdoor seating area (partially roofed) with, weirdly, a pool table under one roofed bit. The food is ok (pub-standard, not particularly cheap, and not as good as it was years ago), the beer is well-kept (there's usually a good choice of guest ales) and...

  • Ye Olde Starre Inne

    Said to be Yorks oldest licensed Inn as it was established in 1644 and was once a Posting house where coach horses would have been changed, before 1733 it was open to Stonegate (it is now reached by a narrow poassage) and would have been accessed by rear gates where there would have been stabling. At the end of the Starre Inn passage is Starre Yard...

The other two actually have replicas of Gallows. This pub has memorabilia reminiscent of the...

    I think it is fair to say there are better Italian restaurants in York but their prices match their quality - I found this inexpensive but pleasant restaurant by chance when I had an hour to kill and wanted to get out of the rain. Far better than national chains this small restaurant plays cool Italian beat music from the 60s and is decorated in...

  • National Trust Cafe, Goodramgate

    The National Trust shop in York has a small cafe that is well worth visiting. It appears to have only a small menu with a very limited number of types of sandwich but on the wall near the till is a board showing the specials of the day. Self service now (although you only order and the food is brought to you) and the food is of a good quality and a...

    York Restaurants

    The restaurant has a very clean, healthy feel to it with modern furniture. The atmosphere is probably designed to be peaceful (as this is quite a small restaurant) though it will depend on the clientele. Service is good though not hurried. The quality of the food is high and is organic where possible. I adored the vegetarian lasagne that I had...

    Too many tips on VT are just about great places to eat. This is not one of them! Russells has 2 locations in York. They are both crap. They share the same traits: • Not friendly to VT groups • Poor service • Ignore you for at least 10 minutes when you come in • Poor food • Overpriced • You have to chase them to get a drink Please do not eat at...

    The Building here is very interesting. The inn is made up of a number of small rooms with old fashioned gas lights in the room where we ate. The place has a lot of character but does look a little dark I suppose. The food was of ok quality and the price was quite good for the location. The only grumble would be that the service was really quite...

As luck would have it, it was a Sunday night and we could take advantage of the eat as much as you like buffet for £7.99. We enjoyed Poppadoms with pickles, a selection of mixed starters...

  • Starbucks, Coney Street

    York Restaurants

    I wouldn't usually recommend a Starbucks, especially in York of all places. But the American chain has done an excellent of restoring a beautiful historic building, and it's worth coming inside just to appreciate the amazing moldings on the ceiling. Give credit to Howard Schulz and Co, too: the Starbucks here opened at least an hour earlier than...

    The food provided at this shop is sausages, eggs, scones, and coffee, and tea. It is a small friendly cafe. Really it was the best and most wonderful way to wake up in York to just sit in the market and enjoy a hot scone and cream and a coffee. Also Cheap!! I am a fan of the scones and cream and tea deal

  • Viceroy of India

    York Restaurants

    A little out of the main tourist area in Monkgate (not far from Monkgate Bar) and consequently that little bit cheaper. Therefore if you are on a budget a few minutes walk will save you some money. Very typical Indian restaurant that can be found anywhere in England but friendly staff and good interior. Prices are ( in 2007) £6.95 for a main course...

  • Cornish Pasty Bakery

    York Restaurants

    Pasties (pronounced like the word past not paste) are a quick filling snack if you don't want to interrupt a busy day in York, they heat them up for you and then you can eat as you're walking or find a bench in the nearby square. We got a chicken pasty, a bacon & leek pasty and a sausage roll, more than enough to tide us over until dinner. Pasties...

  • Petergate Fisheries - closed

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    The best 'chippie' in the city centre if you still feel it is morally justified to eat fish (none left in British seas soon). Yorkshire is one of the places where fish and chips is said to have been invented, even if probably not true, so a lot of people still eat it and this is as good as any place to try it if you have no time for the freshest...

  • Cafe No. 8

    York Restaurants

    I've only just discovered this small cafe/ bistro. It serves an excellent range of drinks, snacks and meals, well-cooked and good value. Best of all, it has a walled garden at the back, a real sun-trap with pleasantly shaded corners. Highly recommended!

    The Kings Arms is a famous pub. The building has been used as an inn since the 1780s. When York was a thriving port this was the busiest quay and the place where the King would board and alight from his boat. The Kings Arms is also York's famous underwater pub, they say it seems to flood almost every year. Upstairs is where the bodies of criminals,...

    Pitcher & Piano Bright and airy, with high ceilings and huge windows facing out onto the river. There's a boardwalk outside where you can eat and drink on a warm summers day (or evening).

    I tried Upper Crust in York first. But I noticed there was one at Euston Station in London. I became a big fan of the Brie, Tomato and Cucumber baguette.
