Roots, York

BritishMichelin Star
Sister restaurant to The Black Swan at Oldstead and both proud to hold a Michelin star, Roots is a relaxed tasting-menu restaurant located in the heart of historic York.
Set in a characterful nineteenth century building on Marygate, Roots was opened in 2018 by chef director Tommy Banks and restaurateur Matthew Lockwood, to bring a taste of Oldstead to the city. Offering just one menu, a tasting menu, allows us to showcase a constantly evolving palate of produce grown on the Banks family's twenty-acre farm and three-acre garden. Our unique dining experience is an intimate reflection of the evolution of our Oldstead 'roots', with dishes nodding to the past, and some brand new creations too.
