Whenever we visit York, my wife and I dine here at least once. It is a wonderful building, with giant columns and a very high ceiling. The food is nice too! The food is delicious actually, with a very good menu. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful building but dinner was ok. Got a voucher for 30% off which made it worth it. A friend said she still felt hungry. The vegan chocolate cake was amazing though
