The Blue Bicycle in York
« on: Mar 19, 2005, 10:45 »
This place is absolutely wonderful you have to go.

The restaurant itself is done out superbly, lit well and has a great ambience.

A nice touch was to bring out some freshly baked bread, butter and a giant whole bulb of roasted garlic. Dip yer knife in and spread. mmmmmmmm

The food is heavily biased towards seafood and the twice i have been there I have been astonished at the attention to detail. The king prawn thermadore for starters was absolutley delish and my Bass was devine.

really if you are in York you gotta try it.

Slightly pricey. Meal for two with generally about 75 nickers last time I went mad and it cost us 113 squid

but that includes deserts, coffees, wine etc.

Went back again yesterday.

Git the traqin from Durham at 3.20 had a couple of drinks and a wander around York and then went to the Blue Bike at 6. Again another truly wonderful meal.

Superb cooking, fabulous menu, good service.

Well done blue bicycle

Last time I was in York I was with son daughter in law and two grandchildren. I would need a loan to pay prices like that. Can't see it being worth that much more than a simple pub meal

Ask the Pope for a loan! He is loaded.

Whilst the Istituto per le Opere di Religione is commonly known as the Vatican Bank, with the Pope as its ultimate head, It is not a bank in the sense of the word as we know it therefore it does not offer personal loans to people even us Catholics.
I would be better off going for a loan from the Swiss as posted by The Big Cheese

Well, I think it was well worth it. I frequent a few pubs that do perfectly good food for less than the Blue Bicycle. It's the attention to detail and flavours that make it worth. (plus me oats when I get home).

There is no way on earth I could justify wasting that much on a meal. That amount would feed myself and most of my family for a month.

It would have to be a very, very special occasion to pay that much for a meal, and it's by no means the most expensive in the region. In fact it's quite reasonable compared to some spots.

The really top prices tend to be charged for pretentious la-de-da food, prepared by chefs who are totally up themselves, that I wouldn't eat anyway. The type of places that serve it tend to be populated by stuck up, chinless wonders who think they're better than everyone else. No thanks. Food is for filling you up, not for admiring as an artwork.

A nice rare steak onion rings and garlic mushrooms with home cooked chips is fine for me. Costs for it vary from £6.00 to 15.00 which is the most I have paid. Don't need home baked bread and other useless titbits.

That's fine for me too. The Joiners Arms where I live has been doing 2 fillet steaks (with the trimmings you suggest) and a bottle of wine for £25 or 2 local sirloins with wine for £20. Great value if you ask me. You even get a bit of salad with it!
