The next chapter,
for the team behind The Black Swan at Oldstead.

25th Best Restaurant in the UK!

The UK’s Independent Guide to the best restaurants, bars and venues Square Meal has announced the UK’s Top 100 Restaurants in the UK and Roots York has been named No.25 amongst some amazing establishments.

Our Michelin-starred sister restaurant Black Swan Oldstead also placed on the list at No.19. A great honour to have two restaurants on the list!

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in the quest to find the SquareMeal Best UK Restaurant of 2019. Thousands of votes flooded in from all over the country and a place anywhere on the list is a major achievement!

Congratulations to all of the restaurants in the top 100!
