The Lamb & Lion
Slow-Cooked Lamb Shank
With seasonal veg, chive mashed & red wine gravy
Rapeseed oil & balsamic
With tomato & pepper sauce
Food was ok, not much on the menu to choose from!!
Social distancing in the restaurant is appalling we were virtually sitting on top of the next tables, disgusting.
Also it was so dark in the restaurant had a job to see the food.
Didn’t finish what was in the dish and left drinks, found it a very odd place
We have eaten here on a number of occasions and always had a enjoyable experience.
We attended on Sunday last for Sunday Lunch.
Everything regarding the staff and service was as good as we have come to expect.
However we were disappointed in the food we had served, the quality and quantity not to the standard we have enjoyed in the past.
Superb food, beautifully decorated building, great service. Will definitely return when we are next in York
This is a fantastic pub/ restaurant/hotel in a perfect position in the city.
Lovely decor and atmosphere, brilliant food and superb staff. Will def be back ! Thank you
Disappointed as on your website said you were still going to eat out scheme and yet we paid full price. We only booked for the offer. The food was very average.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere with polite and helpful staff. Also, the food is exceptionally good value for money!
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, excellent food, service & value for money. We will definitely visit again
Restaurant very small Food was good but no ambience
Was recommended for Sunday Lunch, what we got was nice but left dissapointed that all we got was meat, a couple of roast pots, a few carrots and Gravy with York pud not a green in sight, when mentioned to the waitress she just shrugged her shoulders, then when i was at the toilet i heard her in the kitchen saying "they asked about more veg but i told them they need to book earlier" Needs some training in customer service!!!!
Had the Sunday roast...beef cooked to perfection but meal was cold.
The Lamb and Lion is a quirky pub with many eating rooms with eclectic design. Service is excellent and equally matched by quality food choices. Over two days we had lamb shank, the curry, halloumi, breads with balsamic and olives. The handcut chips are superb. Cannot wait to return.
Fantastic service, legendary fish and chips - and a great atmosphere.
Both myself and my husband and a gentleman at the next table ordered lamb shank, we heard over the waitresses radio that there was no lamb shanks left, as none of the staff came back to us to say there was none left, we presumed ours were the last.it was a good 10-15 minutes before a waiter came to tell us there was only one left. I was kindly offered the meal but o felt quite guilty. That was the only complaint the food was lovely
Food was fantastic, both had lamb shank which was superb. Nibble sharers of Bread and Oil, Olives and Feta and Halloumi were HUGE...! All very good. If any Negative the Olive and Feta mix was a little Supermarket like. Together they were a great starter. The Halloumi was immense. We booked at 17:30 and was told there were only 2x Steak pies left. And just after taking our order they ran out of Lamb Shank and then Steak pies. At this time of day they really shouldn't be running out of the two main dishes. Lamb Shanks were very good. Cooked well and all very homely. Veg was a little under done for me I'm sure perfect for some. Altogether a lovely Meal, great value and definitely recommend and will be returning.
Possibly the worst steak and ale pie I have eaten and don’t get me started on the chips.
The lighting was too dim, only 3 of 5 lights worked in our room. The Lamb was lovely, but there was too much potato, too few fresh vegetables, and everything was drowned in gravy. Fish and chips was good. Service was excellent.
Our meal was delayed but the staff were so efficient in putting matters right that we hardly noticed. A complimentary round of drinks nicely covered the interim period.
Very pleased , food lovely , staff friendly , definitely go again
A meal for wedding anniversary which was not a great experience.
Appreciate the pressures of the moment and the current promotion of 50% saving on dining, but the restaurant appeared simply overwhelmed and by our time of eating the menu was decimated!
Recognise that the best was done but feel the processes in place were inadequate to cater effectively. Our experience was not a happy one and can only hope that improves and recovers the reputation it has had previously.
Traditional very old inn with characterful rooms, good food and beers including Black Sheep and Timothy Taylor. Excellent service and as much care taken as possible with COVID protection given it’s a very old building
Very nice food and atmosphere. Unfortunately it took 45 minutes for our food to arrive which was unacceptable.
We had a young man maybe an asstant manager? Who was simply lovely and endearing he looked after my husband when he got lost and continued to look after us throughout With humour . A great asset to you establishment!!! Louise
Quaint pub. Would have preferred to eat in beer garden but it was full. Food good but service was really slow.
Hi , we didn’t have a great meal or drinks here ,my pint of perioni I ordered was covered in lipstick on the top edge of glass , very concerning in the current Covid situation , really put a dampener on the weekend visit to york ,, 🙏🏻 Hoping not to have contracted the virus from the drinking glass
The food was lovely and the chef went above and beyond to make my partner's Burger more spicy by adding additional chilly peppers and a homemade sauce to accompany the dish.
The Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Excellent atmosphere and superb beer garden although small and you have to be lucky to get a table/seat outside even though we had a reservation.
Food choice a little limited.
Overall a nice place to spend a weekend Summer evening.
Lovely evening at the Lamb and Lion! Food was brilliant, excellent service and everything felt very clean and safe! A great experience even with all these new guidelines in place, would highly recommend :D
We were able to have a lovely drink from the well kept bar before being shown to a very cosy table for two, by an open log fire. We chose nibbles for starters, warm bread with delicious flavoured butters and deep fried courgette amazing flavours. I had the steak and Ale pie with large chips and a creamed vegetable side, well cooked and beautifully presented. My partner had Chilli beef and he was very impressed with the flavours, very spicy. Highly recommended and will definitely need to return to sample the dessert menu.
Food was very good. Staff was good and attentive. Enjoyed the evening. Recommend this restaurant
Lovely meal and evening, but they didn’t have either of our first choice of red and white wine. Food was good though.
So glad we booked here for New Year. Perfect relaxing atmosphere, gorgeous food and excellent service from John. Would highly recommend.
Always fantastic food and service!
Good food and service. Needed bigger portions of Sunday roast. It needed more meat!
Fantastic service and the food is superb recommend to anyone
The meal was OK but not as good as we expected. The chef seems to like to put crumbs on everything. My hake dish didn't seem to have any chorizo in it.
I booked for a Sunday lunch during our York visit. The pub is very easy to find, very near the Minster. We had a cosy room with a roaring fire. The staff were very friendly and our roast was enormous and very tasty. I recommend the huge Yorkshire puds !
We came here for a Sunday lunch on our wedding anniversary. Food was stunning and setting was cosy.
Wonderful place. Staff are amazing and the food is superb. Thank You
Food, service and everything was perfect a try gem in the heart of a wonderful city.
Lovely room where we had our meal, service was wonderful. Food really good would differently go again.
