York itself was relatively quiet and the park and ride served us all well coming in from different directions. Only £2.80pp return makes more sense than the parking charges in town. We could get off only a few steps from the RY. And so to lunch it was. I was going to drink my usual water until the other two were mulling over the cocktail list .I decided I wasn't going to be the odd one out. We had a lovely lunch and all choose the warm chicken and mustard coleslaw as our many course- sorry no photo on that as we had already eaten half of it before we remembered we had forgot to take a photo - blame the cocktail.
I started with ham hock with quail egg and homemade piccalilli and toasted monkey bread. Only as I write this I wonder if it was called monkey bread as it might have had peanut in it. it was delicious no the less. Christine had the most amazing fruit cake with Ampleforth Abbey alcohol added with Yorkshire cheese and a pot of butter too.
It was really nice of Nick to come out of the very busy kitchen to take time to speak with us . It was very busy and buzzing with conferences and people enjoying the food and surroundings.
We would all certainly go back again.
