Food hygiene 'fair'

This is a big plus for public access to information collected by public officials - food hygiene inspection undertake by local authorities like York is public and one the web - search for 'scoresonthedoors'
So as reviews here say - expensive BUT score for hygiene two stars - out of five. So thats three worse than Macdonald's and the like. 'Some non-compliance with legal duties and industry codes of recommended practice. Standards are being maintained or improved.' Hmm I should hope so at those prices!

This has to be York's best kept secret!!!!

After several near perfect meals at Melton's over the years, I feel obliged to shout about this place to the world. The menu is small, but don't let that put you off as each course has been cleverly crafted to offer interest and a memorable experience, complemented with a well balanced wine list compiled by Lucy the owner of this friendly yet professionally run gem just minutes from the city centre.

On our last visit we were welcomed by their new manager who appeared to manage a full house with grace and calm, yet still found the time to share his enthuasism for the place and make us a couple of great champagne cocktails, before we tucked into yet another fabulous meal topped off with an incredible hot lemon souffle.

Make sure if your visiting York to put this at the top of your must visit list.

If you are wanting to splash the cash on a meal out and impress your lady or business associate then this is your place. I have been for some of their meal deals they offer once a month, and if the standard of food on those occassions is anything to go by then, this is seriously good food. But it comes at a seriously big price The wine list is wide and varied. If you were thinking of going there on a race day especially the Ebor meet then booking is essential. For a more relaxed atmosphere the sister bistro Melton's too is going to be more your style

Good Food

Meltons has been around for years, so it must have been doing something right.

It has got some bad points though. It is very stuffy and pretentious, and you can see that it thinks very highly of itself. This has been enough to put me off at times. The food is very good and tasty, but the menu does not vary very much. They know how to make a very good sauce, but then they use it on everything!

They do a good early birds menu, if you want to give it a try without breaking the bank, as it can be very expensive.

It is good, but trying too hard to have the atmosphere of a michelin starred restaurant. Try J Bakers if you like things to be a little more relaxed.
