Combining rustic wooden benches with industrial-chic detailing like hanging metal lamps, Cut & Chase is one of York’s trendiest eateries, conveniently placed on Goodramgate in the city centre. The menu focuses on hearty and honest British cuisine crafted from the finest local produce, while the drinks list is more exotic, boasting a range of handcrafted cocktails which fuse together a number of different influences. Bookings are highly recommended at this one.
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.
Very good service and food was excellent. Price was reasonable and was expecting more for service and food received. Would definately go again soon Thanks
Fantastic yet again. Can't wait to return. Great staff and food. Lovely warm gin mulled cocktail, a bit different but was worth trying, defo have it again.
Excellent steak dinner, lovely hand cut skin on chips with a delicious blue cheese sauce. The service was great. We will definitely be going back.
Had a professional and friendly greeting on our arrival. Decided to start with cocktails from the menu which were great. The restaurant itself is nicely presented with modern decor. My wife was delighted with her baked camembert starter and my prawns were also excellent. The mains were also delicious and well presented. The restaurant was full with a nice atmosphere. Based on our experience we can thoroughly recommend.
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.
