It can be a tough choice trying to decide where to go for Sunday lunch in York. York has blossomed in recent years with regards to food and restaurants. However, I recently had the opportunity to review a roast dinner on a Sunday at Oxo’s On The Mount, which is located at the Mount Royale Hotel York.
I’ve previous visited Oxo’s On The Mount for many family occasions such as birthdays, but I hadn’t been for years so I was really looking forward to it. I asked my boyfriend Kiel to come along with me for Sunday dinner as I know he loves them just as much as I do.
Once we were seated at our table, the very lovely waiter brought over our drinks and some fresh bread to nibble on whilst we had a good look at the menu. The ingredients used within the restaurant are locally sourced and Oxo’s On The Mount pride themselves on having high standards of dining.
To start, I chose the Crayfish Cocktail as I hadn’t ate one in ages and I really like sea food. Kiel, however, opted for the Serrano Ham which was presented beautifully (as you can see from my photograph of it above). I’ll be honest, I did have food envy after seeing Kiel’s starter.
For main, Kiel had the lamb dinner which I tried a bit of and it was delicious. I decided on the pork dinner, as usual, because pork is my favourite meat. The crackling on top of the meat was crisp and cooked perfectly. Just look at those huge Yorkshire puddings! The sunday dinners also come with gravy and a dish full of different vegetables. I liked this because it meant I could select the vegetables I specifically enjoy.
After we’d finished our two courses, we didn’t have enough room for dessert unfortunately. We decided to have a walk around the Mount Royale Hotel’s stunning gardens, which was lovely because it gave me chance for my food to settle.
On a Sunday, you can have 2 courses for £19.95 or 3 courses for £23.95. I think this is totally reasonable considering the options, service and quality of the food. A delicious Sunday lunch in York always goes down a treat in my family. We will definitely be back in future! Find out more information about Oxo’s On The Mount on their website.
