“An outstanding neighbourhood bistro that strives to produce and make sustainable food fresh from local produce, game shoots and day boats” – Stephen Andrews (supported by manager Yohan Barthelemy) delivers a “menu that’s small but perfect” in this inviting industrial-style space, complete with lots of concrete and wood. He took on these premises in April 2020, after a succession of pop-ups in other venues. Top Menu Tip – “incredibly fresh fish, well executed”.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Owner's description

We began Fish&Forest to provide York with a forward thinking sustainable fish and game restaurant, with accountability of sourcing the best ingredients at the forefront of what we do.

Situated in the heart of York, on the top of Micklegate, Fish&Forest is an unpretensious sustainable fish and game bistro by Chef-Owner Stephen Andrews. It is with the help from Yohan Barthelemy that we are able to offer a dynamic, season driven, produce led menu. We want to bring the quality of fine-dining in the techniques we use to prepare and source the ingredients but are committed to maintaining a relaxed attitude on the restaurant floor, with a vibrant atmosphere and welcoming staff

"Fish portion more generous than many. Felt a little like a transport cafe with intrusive music and over perky waitresses. "
