’Great British Menu’ winner Tommy Banks and family, who run legendary country-inn-with-rooms The Black Swan at Oldstead, have opened this newcomer in central York: a converted Tudorbethan pub near the river.

Roots Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Has lost something of its opening fizz. Feast is the only way to eat; prices otherwise exorbitant. Feast price edging up!"
"Fresh, exciting although complicated. The Douglas fir pine needle mousse is extraordinary and the beetroot cooked slowly in beef fat superb. Welcoming young staff."
