A rather pedestrian evening menu, and no bitter beer on offer. Stick to breakfast - which is excellent - in my opinion!

A stylishly decorated small restaurant in one of the best UK hotels I have stayed in . Arriving late I didn't want a full meal and selected two starters. I like dim lighting in restaurants but there's a difference between dim and peering into the...More

Visited this restaurant with friends! We had a lovely evening with lots of flowing prosecco, friendly and helpful waiting staff who didn't mind us showing up with decorations (including lots of confetti) as it was a celebration. We all enjoyed our meals and had a...More

The food was generally fine with the exception of a disappointing eggs benedict. Very tastefully decorated room but not a good view. Well positoned for walking into town and the Minster.

Meal was poor at best though price was extreme for the quality. We had lamb and had trouble finding the morsel on the plate. We ate lamb at several places in the UK on this trip. This was the worst.

  • This restaurant is at The Churchill Hotel
With two AA Rosettes to its name, The Piano Bar and Restaurant available for dinner every night and open Sunday lunch, set within the beautiful Churchill Hotel just moments from the city walls, is undoubtedly one of York's finest. Overlooking the manicured lawns of the hotel, The Piano Restaurant is elegantly modern, its interior design utterly contemporary but without ignoring the splendid proportions and original features of the room's high arched windows, a curving floor and delicate coving just some of the Victorian features. Begin your visit with a relaxed tipple in the bar, a warmly cosy space with a slightly masculine feel worthy of the hotel's namesake, before taking a seat in the brighter, more spacey dining room. Here you'll enjoy that AA acclaimed food with its fresh,locally and ethically sourced ingredients and constantly changing seasonal flavour. Imaginative and but with a nod to traditionalism, The Piano Restaurant's cuisine is created through the use of cutting edge techniques employed by the kitchen's talented and well trained chefs. Enjoyed to the delicate strains of the baby grand that gives the restaurant its name, the food is as sublime as the setting.
