Harden's survey result
“Never had a bad meal”, say fans of this “favourite” tiny bistro, off the Gillygate, serving “excellent ingredients prepared with some imagination”. It can feel “rather cramped inside”, though. Top Tip: “go for the garden room in summer, under the medieval city wall”.
“Simple, no-fuss good cooking” is rustled up in a tiny kitchen at this small bistro, using “excellent ingredients, and prepared with some imagination”. It can feel a “little cramped”, but there’s a secluded garden at the back adjoining the medieval city walls.
“Amazing food from a tiny kitchen underneath the medieval walls” has won a culinary reputation for this “very cramped” bistro (with cute garden). “It now also has pop ups in the Art Gallery and the Merchant Adventurers Hall with excellent cake”.
It may be home to “one of the smallest kitchens in York”, but this diminutive café (with “recently overhauled garden”) just outside the city walls turns out some “gorgeous” food, including “exceedingly good” puds. It’s “now also in the Art Gallery (100 metres away) where the queues are huge”, making the original HQ “a better choice”.

"Compact cafe offering really tasty food. I had a wonderful stew and glass of wine. The garden under the city walls looked interesting, I visited in December."
