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.

    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.

    Good ambience and attractive choice of food from menu . WE were surprised that it was not possible to order a non alcoholic wine although non alcoholic lager was available

    Good choice of well cooked food accompanied by very polite and friendly service. Bit disappointed that I couldn't order a glass or two of bubbly to celebrate a special occasion, and had to make do with Prosecco.

    Always very friendly but the food is average. We live close so we keep our fingers crossed that the food quality will improve but sadly no joy yet. I visited with 2 friends and their food was ok though very unimaginative plating. My burger was awful. Overlooked and very chewy. I returned it and when I got the fresh one it was just the same except the chips were half cooked. I gave up and left it as my friends had finished eating long ago. Very pleasant waitress otherwise it wouldn't have been disappointing overall experience.

    Excellent parking arrangements.
    Pleasant surroundings with a good menu and courteous, helpful staff.
    However, we found service on the slow side and when we explained after a lengthy wait that we were dining early due to having a train to catch in the early afternoon our meal came straightaway.
    The final bill was in line with what we expected and our overall experience was a good one

    Booking online perfect.We are very regular diners ,always happy. Yesterday we treated friends as a way oy saying thankyou and were extremely disappointed.We most certainly ordered Fish and chips,Not Sustainable fish and could not understand why none of us really enjoyed the fish.When my husband saId we did not really enjoy the fish we then learned it was pollack and not cod.Thus paying 8.50 and not 11.50 as we had expected when we clearly asked for fish and chips as per menu.If we come again we will ensure that the waiter carries our correct order into the kitchen.
