We re infrequent visitors to York and were charmed by this great little restaurant where we had lunch. The waitress was really lovely and the service excellent. Deciding on which dish to order was difficult, as they all sounded good, but in the end we had spicy squid to start followed by a beefburger and a chicken burger, neither of which were your normal run of the mill 'burgers' but raised to a much higher level and were just delicious. They're licensed, so we had a couple of glasses of red and then a couple more for dessert, although the actual deserts looked very enticing. The 'ambience' was perfect and we felt very relaxed, even before the wine. We'd definitely go again.

While this place has a hipster vibe with the decor and the menu (pulled pork, superfood salad, avocado, halloumi burgers) and despite them being fairly busy, the host was super accommodating of our request to bring a pushchair after failing to get childcare sorted. We felt very welcome as a family and had a most enjoyable evening amongst the pompadours and tattoos with our 3-year old in his pajamas.

I thought the price was a little steep, but in my opinion it's only a few small steps away from being well worth it—It took a while between being seated and getting water at the table (at a lesser restaurant I wouldn't expect the water at all), the fries could have been more crisp, and despite there being superfood salads on the menu, the non-superfood options are imbalanced towards meat and carbs and imo a little short on fibre and micronutrients.

As you can see, these are far from dealbreakers and I would definitely go again. It's a pity they open at 9am—their breakfast menu looks great!

After wandering round York for a while looking for somewhere to eat we were really happy to find this place. We had a veggie, a vegan and two meat lovers in the group so it was great that it catered to us all! I had the pulled jackfruit, which was really tasty. My partner had the veg curry, which was also great. The meat eaters were also really pleased with their dishes. The presentation was lovely and service great. The only thing I would say is that it’s a little pricey for what you get.

The menu is original. the service very good and the prices very reasonable for a very original menu. The ambiance was good and the service was extremely pleasant. The meat platters were very good with the Beef, Pork and Chicken all 'pulled'. This works very well for the Pork and Beef but 'pulled chicken' isn't something I'd order again in a hurry. My starter of Yorkshire black pudding was very nice despite it not being genuine Lancashire black pudding. Any differences from what might be expected e.g. the panna cotta with coconut milk, was well explained at the time of ordering. Definitely somewhere to go and return to for a meal from an original menu..
