“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.

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).
