About The Rattle Owl

The Rattle Owl is an independent 42 seat casual dining restaurant housed in a restored listed building. With a commitment to exceptional food, using the best local produce and an amazing selection of wine together matched perfectly with great service and atmosphere.

We also have beautiful and unique historic upstairs room for private dining and for business meetings. Please email for further details.

ResDiary allows you to book directly into our Reservations System for tables of up to 4 people.

For bookings of 5 or more people please send us an email: [email protected] or call us 01904 658 658.

Due to a number of large booking no shows, for bookings of 5 or more we now ask for a £10pp deposit. Ts&Cs on refunds apply if you cancel with prior notice.

Please inform us of any dietary requirements in advance. We can accommodate and adapt but it is much easier if we know beforehand rather than last minute on a busy Saturday night service.

Great service and top quality ingredients used. The menu could do with being a little more expansive.

We enjoyed a nice meal for my girlfriend's birthday. The atmosphere and decor throughout was really nice. The food was of a high quality, although limited to just a Sunday roast menu which I had not realised. Nonetheless we enjoyed the food! The waiter was willing to accommodate cocktails given a limited choice of ingredients which was a nice gesture, however we eventually settled on a bottle of Rose from Austria which we would highly recommend!

The lamb was very tough, having to leave half of it. The chocolate delice and ice cream combinations of tastes did not work for us.

This is the equivalent to a three star Michelin restaurant. I should know - I’ve been to 3 of them.

Fabulous tasting menu with drinks pairing. Each course was sublime, well executed and perfectly sized. The drinks pairing was unusual - cocktails, wines & beer but matched perfectly. Six drinks for six courses. We were upstairs in a lovely dining room where the lighting was just right and created a cosy atmosphere. The staff were knowledgeable and attentive. All in all we had a great night, and hope to return soon.

Had a lovely meal here, the food was amazing as always. The only slight criticism was that it was all over a bit too quick! We had a bottle of wine, water and a 3 course meal and we were finished within the hour. It would have been nice to have had a little more time between courses...but then it’s better than waiting ages I suppose! Fantastic restaurant, great atmosphere, food and staff.

Lovely Sunday lunch & friendly staff. Our 6-year-old grandson particularly enjoyed the cauliflower velouté which really was an excellent combination of flavours. We had a table on the top floor under the eaves and were impressed by the care taken to make the premises as 'covid safe' as possible.

The Best meal I have eaten in York this year !! Interesting tasting menu, cooked and presented to perfection - accompanied by a compelling drinks choices (go for the drinks package - well worth it) Service was brilliant and not effected by COVID constraints.

We thoroughly enjoyed the “Blind Tasting Menu” on Saturday evening. Each course was stunning; the presentation was beautiful and flavours were delicious. The staff are very friendly and very knowledgable about all the ingredients. Would highly recommend and we will be returning very soon. Thank you for a superb evening.

The food and staff were superb. The price is willing paid for such quality. My one reservation was being at the very end of the restaurant, I only had a fire door to look at. But definitely recommending to friends.
