Fodor's Review

One of York's best restaurants is in a building that once served as a brothel, a past reflected in its murals featuring undraped women. The menu changes with the seasons and concentrates on local seafood. Typical dishes include pan-seared scallops with five-spice confit pork belly, roast stone bass with pumpkin puree and beetroot, and char-grilled fillet of venison with root vegetables and puy lentils. Downstairs are four intimate walled booths, and at street level is a lively candlelit room. The wine list is impressive, and the service couldn't be friendlier. The restaurant also has six self-contained apartments—called the Blue Rooms—in a courtyard to the rear.
