Formerly a hotel and built on Roman graves, The Fox and Roman in York is furnished with classic Victorian oak and brickwork and Roman artefacts from the site. The country pub boasts seasonal British pub cuisine, which can be enjoyed by the warm hearth, or in the al fresco beer garden.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Fox and Roman menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Fox and Roman ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Fox and Roman is adjacent to the York Racecourse, and is merely 5 minutes’ drive from York.

    We can always rely on the Fox & Roman for a good meal - although we've never been for Sunday lunch which we enjoyed yesterday.
    Pleasant polite service, good food and great vegetables, lots of them!

    We found the whole experience very pleasurable, excellent table next to fire, food was wonderful especially the seabass on a bed of risotto with pesto & the sharing pud platter was awesome.
    Only one very minor criticism, the waiter took out payment which was 4 £20 notes which we should have had around £7 change, which we would have left as a tip if given the chance, however the waiter didn't return with our change but obviously assumed it was his tip!
    This didn't spoil our was excellent....thank YOU

  • ((((( 8 November 2016 by Susie Field from York

    Service was very friendly and attentive. Specials were recommended to us and both the massaman curry and slow braised short rib of beef were excellent. My mother in law (it was her 85th birthday had the ham hock and it was delicious. Starters were a similar standard and portion size good..A great evening.??

    2 x Hunters Chicken, 2 x Burgers, 1 x sirloin steak - all well received.
    Good atmosphere and excellent service.
    Reading menus in well lit area not a problem, but good eyesight needed in the darker corners!

    Always a warm welcome from the team, the atmosphere is cosy and really relaxing, we went as a family, there was no rush to take our table, we sat in the comfy chairs and enjoyed a drink before our meal. The food was really delicious, my daughter and I having our favourite chicken pie which never disappoints- we finished with the sharing platter of desserts which was just right after a really satisfying main.
