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 York is in the centre of the beautiful 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 Wetherspoons than a nice place to grab a steak.
I think this instantly lowered both of our expectations of what was to come.
Cut and Craft York
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 steaks 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 York again, but probably not on a Saturday evening!
