Typical restaurant / pub. But food better than the norm and has a good ambiance. Good choice of food, wine and beer.

Had a decent family meal here on Sunday. The place is really nice, very old. Food was adequate, and pretty well priced, if slightly mushy potatoes and a bit tepid. . No complaints about service.

Visited for food on Friday 12th May, the girl who served us was very keen. We ordered fish and chips with bread and butter. the fish was very oily when it arrived and the chips were just oven chips. On cutting into the batter the inside could only be described as white mush. It was disgusting and inedible. we complained... More

We live round the corner and have eaten at the F&R for years.! It has always been good, if not spectacular, up until recently. The last two visits have been awful. Last time, we had two steals which were almost inedible - full of gristle. This time, we had a duck salad which contained barely any duck and the duck... More

First impressions of a very friendly welcoming establishment. The menu had a wide range of food to choose from and the service was excellent. The food was very good and very large portions, a little too much for me though. I will certainly visit again when next in York.

dropped in twice on the offchance in the last week and had superb service and a really good choice of food. Carparking is slightly difficult for blue badge users. Good gluten free options for husband and I even had puddings both times and I am not a pudding person.

We visited Fox and Roman as it was a stones throw from our hotel and were not disappointed. Food was excellent - the shallot tarte tatin was the best starter I've ever had. The chicken pie and trio nut and toffee dessert were equally delicious. The service was exceptional, we were immediately felt welcome by Jamie who was really friendly... More
