Having a disabled friend with us is always a challenge getting in and out of bars. Asked if we could use the dining area just for drinks as we couldn't use stairs down to bar area. Andy kindly accommodated us, explaining table was reserved later that evening which wasn't a problem to us. If they hadn't been full we would... More

Monday this week when staying in York overnight, we were beginning to lose hope of finding anywhere decent open on a Monday when we came across Brigantes on Micklegate. Excellent food and great service from attentive and enthusiastic staff. We will certainly eat there again when we visit York. I had the fried haddock and requested sweet potato fries -... More

We visited York after a 7 day tour of North England and arrived on a Monday with a number of eating houses closed. We chanced on Brigantes which seemed busy and had a very good plain meal there at reasonable prices. Pleasant service although the food took a little time to arrive it was all freshly cooked. A good find.

Looking for dinner saw Brigantes brightly lit with lots of people. Elsewhere "no room" so in we walked. Friendly welcome bar or restaurant area? Drink? Which beer? Try the Black sheep lots of choice for every taste. Gammon and egg with all the trimmings you could wish for, chips cut striaght from potato, delicious. Tofu on noodles with peppers ditto.... More

Once again at Brigantes for a whisky tasting so took the opportunity to have dinner first. Had the fish and chips (again) and not disappointed. Very good food and as usual plenty of beers to choose from. Premises clean and tidy. Happy to recommend.

Called in at this place on the recommendation of the owner of the B&B we were staying at. Excellent selection of real ales (10) and good, reasonably priced food. Casual atmosphere.

Had a family and friends lunch; food was good and on the whole a nice place to eat, but the service was pretty poor - lots of waiting between courses and waiting on other requests and drinks etc. Would probably be a nice place to go at less busy times.

Perfectly good grub, and really excellent beer, in this place. Not sure if it's a food pub, or a restaurant with a bar. Anyway, it's nice.

We chose this restaurant, based on Trip Advisor reviews and the restaurant's on-line menu, for the first evening of a five night stay. First impressions from outside were that it must be good as it looked so busy! As soon as we stepped inside we noticed a strange smell -- vaguely rancid. the only free tables were covered in empty...

Food was nice, very delicious pub food, especially the steak, which was juicy! However, the nachos and chicken strips was out of my expectation. There was only chicken strips but no nachos. When I ask the staff where the nachos is, he answered it was hidden under the chicken... Anyway, we enjoyed the food.

Thank Esther L
