A few months ago, one of my Instagram friends posted a photo of their meal at a steak place in York. I’ve been dying to go ever since.
Cut and Craft is in the centre of York, it’s a steak house and sells craft beer, amongst other drinks.
You can’t book, you just walk in and hope there’s a seat. You can go to the bar if you need to wait. We were given a 15-minute wait. Initial thoughts of the place is were that it looked very ‘modern trendy’. It was packed and they were playing loud pop/chart music. This ruined the mood a little bit as it made it seem more like a Revolutions or Whetherspoons than a nice place to grab a steak.
I think this instantly lowered both of our expectations of what was to come.
We both ordered fillet, mine medium rare with popcorn sauce, while my boyfriend had rare with a blue cheese sauce.
It was actually delicious. I’ve had lots of steak and I can tell you, that was a good steak. My boyfriend agreed. I just wish there were a little peppercorn sauce and a little less loud music!
I also got a free glass of wine. To be honest, I don’t know what happened. I think the waiter thought we both asked for a new drink but I didn’t, but she told me just to keep it so he didn’t get in trouble with his boss and he wouldn’t charge us for it! So I drank two large glasses of Shiraz. Oops! I’ve quit drinking and have like one glass of wine a month with a meal out, but I wasn’t going to say no to free wine! I was a bit tipsy but thankfully not hungover the next day.
I’d go to cut and craft again, but probably not on a Saturday evening!
