* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“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”.

For 31 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).
