A mountain of food on the Mount at Valentinos York

Valentino’s is a relatively new (well new in York years) Italian situated on the Mount. Despite walking past the venue numerous times I’d not had the chance to visit. Therefore after a nice drink in the Windmill just a stone’s throw away it seemed the perfect chance to sample a new place. We arrived not…

A happy night at Happy Valley York

On a rather wet Monday evening recently I headed out to meet a close friend for the evening. After a couple of drinks and a good catch up we decided we had got rather peckish so wondered out in search of food. As it was raining we didn’t fancy venturing far so decided we would…

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 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…

Independent restaurant – check ✅ New cuisine for us – check ✅ Never eaten there together…

Dinner at Khao San Road, York

I had eaten in Khao San Road many years ago and for some reason I had never been back. Therefore as April was my turn to pick where we went, and Khan San Road fit our criteria we booked a table for two. After a quick drink in Sutlers we headed up to Walmgate. Khao…

Dinner in Delrio’s restaurant, York

One of my favourite places in York is Delrio’s on the corner of Micklegate. I’m a big fan of Italian and so had been banging on about going here for ages. Yet for some reason we never managed it, until February. It was a very cold snowy evening so after a quick stop in Brewdog…
