We wanted to eat at this place for a long while but as we are usually day trippers and the restaurant doesn't open until 5.30pm we haven't managed it. As we had a overnight stay in York we decided to give it a go and have to say it was delicious. Hubby had cod loin and I had duck best... More

We recently stayed in York for 3 night and ate out each night. The Go Down was our favourite restaurant. Food was great - my wife loved the fish dish she had and all in all, service and food was very good.

So glad we found The Go Down all thanks to TripAdvisor. A lovely family run restaurant, that serves up delicious food in a cosy setting with a great ambience. The place was certainly busy on a Saturday evening and I would recommend booking. The service was quick and we had dishes explained to us in a helpful and friendly way.... More

We dined at this restaurant last night. We visit regularly and it was our third Christmas night out there. Food was excellent. Great menu and very reasonably priced for a Christmas do. The staff are all lovely and made us very welcome. Atmosphere was great. Cannot fault it and would highly recommend it. Can't wait for our next visit.

Me and my Mrs went in and was blown away by the whole thing. My partner is very particular on presentation and service. Although not the best looking place the food and hospitality was great and the food was fantastic. And it was nice to see the chief come out to see and speak to the guests. Will definitely go...

This team does everything well. The food is delicious. The menu offers a good range of classic dishes and gives just the right amount of choice. Presentation was excellent.I could barely contain my excitement at being presented with a selection of fresh seasonal vegetables in a three section serving tray accompanying the main course. We rarely get that attention to... More

Fantastic meal in a super location. Excellent staff and so friendly. Look forward to visiting York once a year and the Go Down Restaurant will definitely be a must. Will be reserving a table for next year as booking is essential. Margaret and Karen from Scotland
