Cut & Chase has been packing in the crowds since opening its doors on Goodramgate, and it’s not hard to see why this trendy hotspot has gained a following as one of the fastest-rising names in York’s restaurant scene. Don’t let the industrial-chic interiors distract you from the menu at this kitchen and bar, which focuses on all-time British favourites with a modern twist. As you might have heard, the cocktails here are exceptionally drool-worthy too.
Whet your appetite with homemade soup, steak tartar or crushed avocado & chilli bruschetta, before tucking into the pan-fried lamb loin served on a creamy colcannon mash with carrots, minted broad beans, peas and a rich gravy. Afterwards, sink back a cocktail from the lengthy selection on offer – we recommend the Ruby Rose – a unique take on the classic mojito, made with a special blend of rose petal vodka and rose liqueur, in place of white rum. Given its central location in York, a stone’s throw away from the railway station, Cut & Chase is one stellar outfit no self-respecting foodie should ever miss. Reserve a table before you visit, however, as seats tend to fill up fast.
Great food / drink / service. Couldn't recommend enough! Steak was cooked perfectly and the wine (Mt Holdsworth S. Blanc) was fantastic. Banquette was a too upright in the booth - but that's being a little picky haha!
Fantastic friendly service. And the food is always outstanding! Always our go to for any special occasion. Cannot wait for a girly night on the cocktails in a couple of weeks!
Fab service and food in very nice surroundings We booked on the day for a table of 2 the staff were very helpful and polite. The bar had a good selection of wine and gins! The food was lovely and timed perfectly - I don't like courses coming out too quickly
Quiet night for the restaurant but great food, good wine, relaxed atmosphere and excellent friendly staff. Wished we lived closer ! Lovely evening. Thank you.
We had friends from Canada visiting York for the first time and took them to Cut and Chase for the evening after reading some really good reviews. We booked for 06.30 and were glad that we did as the restaurant filled up very quickly but it was a Saturday and a Race Day. The menu is not extensive but food quality and presentation was really good. We were very well looked after and the atmosphere was excellent. Our friends really enjoyed themselves and thought it was a great choice. Will definitely visit again.
Our First visit on Friday 16th September and was warmly greeted by the waitress. First course of Duck salad and my wife had Quinoa Bites and both were excellent. My main was the liver which asked for it to be cooked slightly pink was very good and was cooked how i liked it. I had finished it but had some sauce left which was to good to leave so i asked for a piece of bread which was brought to the table and had been warmed on a griddle pan and was thick and tasty My wife had a second starter of venison meat balls which she said were lovely and soft. The "Puddin" as they call it, was the "ALL five sharer" which was fantastic. All this was washed down with a good house wine. The service was great. Ambiance was good with soft lighting however the music was more for the younger age group than us but didn't detract from an excellent evening. We will call again. THANK YOU CUT & CHASE.
We celebrated New Years Eve at Cut and Chase. The service and food were both very good. Samples the "nibbles" with crackling and marinated seafood. These were a little disappointing but the mains were terrific. The chocolate fondue was also a nice way to finish the meal. Our server was very attentive and the bartenders were also excellent. So overall, a great night and we'd recommend to others.
Quite disappointed with the whole experience. We were sat in the table for 2 right at the back and felt we were in the staff corridor as the kitchen hatch was just behind us so staff back and forth all the time looking after other people but felt we were a little bit ignored. You had to ask staff to move in order to get into the toilet and had to be very careful coming out that you didnt whack the door into any staff member who then looked very peeved that had come out of the door into their space. The food menu is limited which is quite often a good thing but I wasnt taken with anything on it so we both opted for fillet steak but i was pretty disappointed with the lump of meat on my plate. The peppercorn sauce had more onion than peppercorn as was very watery I had liked the look of the cocktail menu when i had researched the restaurant online but there wasnt a bar area to enjoy them in really and didnt want to stay sat in my "corridor" seat so we left. Bill was £70 for 2 steaks and a bottle of wine but I cant say I felt it was worth the money we paid and I wont be going back.
Oh wow it was amazing! We started with a cocktail and a beer- the cocktail was perfect and there was a great selection of beers in the fridge! I started with the duck spring rolls and my other half had the avocado bruschetta- best spring roll I've ever had and the fried poached egg was great! My lamb loin main was far more filling than first appearance and it was the perfect balance of flavours and textures- particularly liked the mash. The lamb itself melted in the mouth! We finished off with sharing the nuts about chocolate cocktail and I'm glad we shared! Great food, great portions, and lovely service
Cut and Chase had a warm and friendly atmosphere. The food was excellent, well presented and the portion sizes were good (my wife couldn't manage a dessert after a starter and main). Serving staff were efficient and attentive without being over bearing. All in all, a very enjoyable evening, would highly recommend it.
First visit to Cut and Chase ! What a great little place. Food was awesome ! Only sorry we did not know about the Valentine sharing menu until we had already ordered. Will definitely be back ! Thank you !
Outstanding meal and fabulous service thanks to all at Cut and Chase. The restaurant is modern with a great vibe and atmosphere. The wine is reasonably priced and a good choice of wine by the glass too
Superb meal, food was perfect, I like my steak blue and often this results in a charred outside and raw cold inside. The chef here got my fillet steak absolutely spot on. The service was excellent and the prices are realistic. For 2 of us to have 3 courses with coffee and wine with our meal our total bill was £82. We will most certainly be back here. Highly recommended.
Excellent cocktail very unique with a great taste. This is an excellent idea while you are waiting for your meal.The starter was very nice and fresh (we had the crab) and main meal very good (fish and the duck). I was very disappointed with the desert. We took the banofee with end up to be 2 small meringues (not even home made) with a bit a banana cream and was quite expensive. I recommend this restaurant but careful with desert.
Cut and Chase serve Amazing food and have brilliant service we loved it. Very impressive cocktail menu too, would definitely recommend and hope to return in the future
Lovely food and very friendly service - we went for Sunday lunch and had specifically gone there as the website stated there was nut roast ( 2 of us are vegetarian) However although that is no longer on the menu the staff made a great effort to provide an alternative which was delicious! The meat eaters enjoyed their beef as well! Would also recommend the infused gins!
Well we went there for my boyfriend birthday. Very nice ambience for a romantic meal. My boyfriend had a king scallops for a starter. It was only 3 and testless , he was very disappointed. For main course he had a fillet steak, with peppercorns sauce and and prawn as a side dish. It look good when it arrived but as he start to eat his steak in the middle it was like rare ! Which he asked to be cooked midium to well so he left it. My meal was very nice , very satisfied with it. We told the waitress about the my boyfriend starter and main meal wasn't what he expected to be. I must say waitress dealt with very well and refund the money for my boyfriend starter n main meal. Maybe it was a one off ! They wont even that busy to be honest. So not sure but , I would like to give a second try in future.
After two visits here I have to say the quality of the food is excellent. Very nice variety of dishes. Good wine list, reasonably priced and a nice selection of cocktails. The service was very friendly, helpful and prompt. The food was served hot from the kitchen. One of my new favorite places in York!
Very good service. Food was excellent. I had fish, it was so fresh and well cooked. Would have been nice to have had more mushy peas. House wine was brill. Pud was very good , although the brownie could have been reduced to one piece and served with ice cream or a small amount of double cream. Excellent all in all .
We went as a group of four and couldn't fault either the service or the food. Excellent atmosphere. Would definitely recommend the Cut and Chase.
