    What a wonderful experience. Gourmet food of the highest standard from the 6 taster menu .The waiters gave good information on each course. The taste and flavour were delightful as was the delicious wine.

    Had a great meal the six course taster with the wine and must say it was enjoyed by all four of us very much! Not only the food and wine but must mention the service is outstanding, Recommended highly.

    We booked Van Zellar's due to the write ups on-line for my husbands birthday. We have eaten in some Michelin stared places and this place was up there with the best of them. We had the taster menu and every course was perfect, the staff were not pretentious which made a nice change and did a super job of reccomending a perfect wine to accompany the meal! We will defiantly be going back!!!

    Not the cheapest meal you will ever have,or the biggest quantity, however the quality of the food is superb and the service is understated, discreet but very efficient. This was our third visit and the experience has proved to be consistent.

    I am still thinking about this meal three days later. Re savouring the wonderful tastes and textures and trying to decide which course of this seven course tasting menu was my favourite. The incredible salmon, the pig's head croquette, the lavender honey and yoghurt taste explosion or the strawberry dessert.? Van Zeller never fails to please with food, or service. Peter and Ashley glide through the evening with charm and finesse. We love coming here to eat and can't wait for our next visit !

    I booked this restaurant as part of a weekend break for my wife's 40th and can confirm the evening at Van Zella was the highlight superb food that has the experts raving and when you sample it you will understand why. It is easy to understand how the Good Food Guide has given it restaurant of the year, we will be back.

    This was my fourth visit to Van Zellers and im pleased to say it was just as fantastic this time as the previous visits. Having booked on the 7 course taster menu for 35 pounds promotion, we were treated to 7 courses of exquisitely presented, perfectly cooked, seasonal food that matches up to most of the michelin starred restaurants i have visited. Service was efficient, low key , yet friendly. Unfortunately it was quite quiet on the Thurs lunctime we visited but that is to be expected. For the price tag you wont get a better meal anywhere in Yorkshire.

    We went to Van Zeller's for our 7 year wedding anniversary. At the time we had a 5-week old, so we called in advance to make sure that we could bring her with us. We went on a Tuesday Night so it was not very crowded, and they were kind to allow us to bring her as long as she stayed quiet. Our baby did a great job - cried a few times and we took her oustide to calm her down but the staff were very understanding. Did the 10-course tasting menu, they allowed us to split a wine course between us. Food was amazing. Each course was well composed, flavourful and delicious. The wine pairing was really excellent.

    We had the 6 course Taster Menu. The quality of the flavours , ingredients and presentation was top class. The presentation and originality of each course was outstanding. In particular the Duck and Foie Gras was bursting with flavour, as was the Salmon and Bacon Jam (yes it worked wonderfully). Everything from the home-made breads, the amuse-bouche, through to the desserts was of the highest order. This was on par with the Michelin Starred restaurants that we have tried over the years. (but with a more relaxed atmosphere)
