New Years Day and heading South from Edinburgh, Loz was very excited to try a proper Yorkshire Pudding in York. Down South (London etc) your average roast dinner comes with a small to medium sized Yorkshire Pudding on the side. But in Yorkshire, you roast dinner is served in a Yorkshire Pudding the size of your plate, mmmmm. Loz had done some prior research and found this pub as one recommended for a good Sunday Roast.
Value: 8 - £7.99 for a huge Yorkshire Pudding filled with meat and gravy. Vegies served on the side for you to mix yourself.
Quality: 3 - I had the roast pork and it was dry as a bone. The spuds weren't roasted, they were boiled so big poo-poos for those factors. Loz said the beef was nice but unfortunately I have to vote on my experience.
Atmosphere: 7 - a nice little Brittish pub but nothing inspiring. I can't remember if there was music or football on but it certainly didn't compare to something like The Mitre in Holland Park.
Service: 9 - the bloke was really friendly and the meal came fast, job well done.
Would we go back? Given it's in York we won't be going back but even if we were, I wouldn't be back in a hurry.
