“Our first blind tasting menu, not completely knowing what to expect. We needn’t have worried!” – Josh & Victoria Overington’s intimate venture at the heart of the city is “a small place that packs a mighty punch”. “Courses flow effortlessly from one to another” with “excitement before each arrival”, and deliver “stunning dishes with incredible flavours beautifully presented”. “Watching the chefs beaver away and then pass the food over to you is great fun too. (Probably the finest thing I ate was a baked scallop with sea urchin butter and Amalfi lemon… makes drooling noise… utter perfection!)”

“Part of York’s culinary renaissance, in the heart of the town, on Walmgate” – Josh & Victoria Overington’s “intimate”, “small” venture again put in one of the strongest performances in this culinarily up-and-coming town. “Josh has his eye on the ball and continues to excel” with his “properly impressive” tasting menu: “full of invention with truly gorgeous flavours” using “hyper-seasonal ingredients”; and “at a decent price, too”. “The knowledge of the front of house team compliments all that is done in the kitchen, they know exactly what they are serving you; and the choice of wines is extraordinary – if you decide to take the wine flight then rest assured you will have an elevated dining experience”. Top Menu Tip – “The boudin noir macron is a thing of joy”.

A “great concept, expertly executed” – Josh & Victoria Overington’s “superb” venture provides some of “the best high-end dining in York”. “Josh is rightly lauded for his food”“unique, experimental, fun, complicated, very intelligent” – and the format is that you get what you are given (which changes between days, and even between tables on the same sitting) from a four-course or eight-course menu. To accompany, there is an “exciting”, “fairly priced wine list with huge number of wines by the glass” presided over by Vicky. “It’s limited by its small space, but they try hard” and the whole experience is “ungimmicky” and shows “remarkable attention to detail”.
