Trying Thai at Sangthai in Escrick, York

Last month we decided to venture outside of the city walls of York, but not too far… just down the road to Thailand – well Escrick’s version of Thailand at the Sangthai Restaurant. Eagle eyed Cand had spotted an amazing deal, where every Wednesday and Sunday evening you can ‘Try Thai’ for £20 for two…

Revisiting an old favourite – 1331 York

One of the good things about meeting up with an old friend that you haven’t seen for a while is that you tend to also revisit places that you haven’t been to for a while. In this case it was a trip to 1331. This used to be one of my favourite places to eat,…

A Review of Tapas for Tea in Sotano, York

We are doing pretty well so far, half way into 2018 and working our way through our ‘to eat‘ list, so when it came to our meal out in July we found ourselves reviewing our list and pondering where to eat next. As we both fancied tapas, the decision of Sotano seemed a good one!…

Late night pizza stop at Zizzi, York

Recently I met up with a friend for a couple of drinks at Judges Lodgings. We both decided we were peckish but having left it rather late we went for the nearest place to us that was still serving – Zizzi on Lendal. Of course I never say no to a pizza so I was…

A Review of The Ivy, St Helen’s Square, York

Well, I have been keen to visit The Ivy, York for quite some time. Yes, I appreciate it is a chain and there are plenty of them scattered around the country, but I am a basically drawn to beautiful interiors like a moth to a light. Having walked past many times and peered through the…

A taste of Italy at Marzano, York

This month we decided to go a bit radical and go with my seat of the pants side taking the lead (rather than Jane’s let’s book six months in advance organised side!) so we didn’t book anywhere. Instead we decided we would head towards Fossgate as there were a couple of restaurants on our list…

A review of Spark:York, where York is the new York

I’m not going to start this post by lying. 23 shipping containers, in York? Huh? I wasn’t too sure I liked the sound of it when it was first announced, but it certainly sounded intriguing and something different for York. Then I found out where it would be – well come on Piccadilly needed something…

Experience India at the Cat’s Pyjamas, York

Having been to the Cat’s Pyjamas in Leeds last year, as soon as we heard one was opening in York it got added to our list, and we weren’t disappointed. After a quick al fresco drink in our new favourite spot Spark, we headed over to the Cat’s Pyjamas. This is no bog standard curry…

Dinner in the dog friendly Aldwark Arms, York

Last week I was on dog sitting duty for a friend, so Foodie Friends had a furry pal to take out to dinner. Rather than go into town, we decided to head a little way out of York to The Aldwark Arms – they welcome dogs in the bar (in fact they have doggie treats…
