Gert and Henry, York
The Very Best of British...
Gert and Henry
4 Jubbergate, York
A bustling restaurant in York's heart.
In this timbered building at the end of Jubbergate in Newgate Market square,
Now the tantalising scent of of solid English fare,
The restaurant is the sort of place that knows its customers inside out and as a result is packed to the rafters with families and older couples contentedly browsing a menu with a firm emphasis on the old favourites of British food.
Cosy tables exude a quiet hum of relaxed chatter against a background of easy listening music.
People here are not dressed to the eyeballs trying to impress each other with their knowledge of fusion cuisine or New World wine; they're dining among old friends.
Gert & Henry's may be as comfortable as your sheepskin slippers. But while it trades on familiarity, it doesn't treat its customers with contempt by trotting out pale old pub grub.
The food is all the sort of stuff the chef could buy fresh as a daisy from the market
