    I am annoyed that i was charged for soda water after spending £44 on wine and wanted the water to mix with the wine. I gave a £10 tip but was not told that I had been billed 12.5 % service charge not acceptable. Will not leave a good review for this reason
    The YorkResponded on February 19, 2024
    Hi Diane. Thanks for the feedback. We have always charged for soda, whether in a spritzer or a soft drink. As we have to pay for the gas and water. We apologise if this was not made known to you. With regards to the service charge, it's printed on our menu and at the bottom of the bill that we add optional service to all food bills. Again, we are sorry that this was not pointed out to you when you paid your bill. We would be happy to refund the service charge to you. Please contact us at hello@theyorknorwich.co.uk. Many thanks Wendy- The York

    Only 4 Mains on the menu. One was finished at 7pm. The second didn't have a key ingredient. I had to chose something I didn't want and it gave me indigestion.

    Waited 45 minutes for a main meal and the food was cold & the chips were burnt. The waiter was very nice & apologetic but I had to return my inedible steak with a slab of cold horseradish butter on top twice. Really awful cold uncooked sinewy steak. My meal was refunded but we will not be going back. I felt really sorry for the waiter who was a genuinely nice guy

    I think the ambience and service was just outstanding. They were kind and welcoming and really good with my toddler. The menu was limited, the food was brilliant. Needs to advertise its food better as I only found it because I know the area but it needs to show more on google hits. Great place and will be back

    Great service and atmosphere. I had the pumpkin which was delicious. My friend had steak and asked for medium rare, and it was much more on the rare side! The cheese plate seemed quite small given the price. Everything tasted nice though.

    We booked a table at this pub as we were visiting our Aunty and taking her for lunch. It was very quiet at 1.30pm but soon became busier. We ordered lovely wine and our food. Nothing disappointed and we have to give special mention to our Bavette steaks ....they were second to none. Thank you to the lovely family run pub .....everyone must try!!! No burgers here!

    Disappointed, had called for drinks previously and thought the food offer looked good.Having booked a table for dinner on arrival we were informed that only snacks were being served, as a large party were in the private dining area. I understand not overwhelming the kitchen but there was no effort to contact us to say that there were limited dining options. Presumably the large party had not booked in the 10 hours between us making our reservation and our arrival. The reservation system should have been updated to not allow our booking if it could not be honoured. To be fair the manager did apologise and the ordered drinks were not charged. There is no second chance to make a first impression, left and went elsewhere for dinner. Unlikely to return as not local to Norwich. Probably taken longer to write this review than we spent in The York.

    Really tasty roast dinner at The York. Love that you get extra gravy without even asking and the meet cooked brilliantly (I think it’s hard to get perfectly pink beef at a pub and they nailed it). Recommend going the whole hog and getting the extra sides. The cheesy leeks were lush!!

    It’s so nice to see a place doing so well in difficult times. Folk of the York, you were amazing. Phenomenal food (bavette 🥹) absolutly inspired wine menu, and lovely, knowledgable staff who did all they could to please. Couldn’t ask for a more hospitable venue. Thanks for a lovely evening, I’ll be back.

    I went to The York Tavern after being told at The Eagle in Farringdon, London, that someone who had worked with them for ages had reopened The York. My reasoning was that if it was 25% as good as The Eagle, it would be brilliant. I’ve now been to The York to eat three times in about six weeks. I think this speaks for itself.

    A very pleasant, sunny evening in the back garden of the York. We chose a table by the herb border which was pleasant to smell. The mushroom parfait starter was recommended to us by the very attentive, friendly waiter. It came with three generous pieces of toasted sour dough. We thought it was very tasty - a bit more onion jam would have been good! My husband very much enjoyed his steak and chips. I had the aubergine dish. The baba ganoush and giant couscous was delicious but the aubergine could have been chargrilled for longer or even slow roasted for more flavour. I had imagined a whole aubergine but instead it was 3 slices. Tasty though, nevertheless. A pleasant evening all round.

    Steak was thickly cut, not ideal for bavette cut. Chips good. Doesn’t come with veg. On the expensive side.
