Stopped here after walking by and seeing the carvery on display!We had been looking for a pub doing Sunday Roast, but he food looked so good we went in. An excellent carvery and good homemade deserts. Good service and good value for money, highly recommended.

We were staying overnight in York and wanted a good British meal rather than the modern British stuff that most places in York are serving up at the moment, take a look outside most eating establishments in York and you would be forgiven if you felt they all have the same chef as the menus are very identical in whats...

We had been out exploring York since early morning and not having had breakfast we decided we would call in somewhere for something to eat. As we were passing Russell's we saw the chef through the window carving a roast beef joint, that made up our minds! We entered and were shown to our table, the staff were friendly and... More

Came here on a trip to york as it looks nice from the outside. Started off ok but as soon as the staff thought we had finished the bill was placed on our table without us asking for it, which is rude. I found this surprising seeing as I could hear them getting excited when someone walked in and they... More

I'll start with the positive. Service, drinks and meat were nice!!! Roast potatoes standard frozen!! parsnips were unrecognisable! Mash potatoes tasted strange and the carrots, sprouts, stuffing and gravy were tasteless.. we ate it. Paid and left.. every else were busy due to Christmas market. We should have know why the were quiet.. such a shame with that location..... waste... More

Went lastnight had a carvery and the meat was really nice. Just abit dissapointing that the gravy was put on before veg BUT we was offered more gravy after. Quite nice but a little expensive for what we got.

We usually visit here on our annual trip to York and very much look forward to it, but I don't think we'll visit again, which is a real shame. We were quite surprised that it was fairly empty. As we waited to be sat, the man shouted across the restaurant to us to sit rather than come over and speak... More
