Atmosphere all works together with the right music, outdoor lights, size and privacy. Great place to go for drinks. The staff are really friendly and welcoming.

Trendy bar,often frequented by sizeable groups particularly at weekends, so can be noisy, drinks, particularly cocktails seem very weak, service can be very slow,,, some live music (jazz)

I found Kennedys while wondering round York. It had a welcoming atmosphere and the candles on the table gave it a very warm touch. The food came out in no time and was delicious! Staff were super friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Recently came to Kennedys for a meal. Food was very nice, couldn't fault it at all. The venue had a good atmosphere and was lively for a Friday night meal out.
