We fell on the Dawney Arms by accident but we were so glad we did. The food was amazing. The member of staff who served us was faultless, really accommodating, efficient, helpful and friendly. The landlady, who is also the chef came to our table to make sure we were happy with the food. Really must say that this was one of the best pub meals we’ve had in a very long time and would highly recommend checking this little gem out. Wonderful 👍

Popped in for a meal when passing. A warm and friendly welcome by staff and locals. A good selection of drinks and food on the menu to cater for all tastes. Quality, quantity and value of our meals were outstanding. All appearing to be homemade, fresh and served piping hot. Will definitely call in again if we are passing by !

I would say this is without a doubt the best pub for food, service and atmosphere I've ever had the fortunate luck to have discovered. The landlady is the chef and she's so good that she introduced herself and personally came out to make sure we were satisfied with our food which of course was possibly the best quality and home made available and the portion sizes are very generous but isn't reflected in the price. Exceptional value for money. We would dedicatedly call in again next time we visit York.

Had a wonderful lunch there recently with my family. The food was excellent, the atmosphere great (lovely roaring fire) & Victoria & Neil’s hospitality was second to none. Beer wasn’t bad either! Highly recommend a visit! 🍺😀
