Places to eat

Here are some reviews of restaurants and other places to eat that have been visited recently. I hope they are useful but it’s always worth checking accessibility with the venue in case things have changed or you need more information than we’ve given!

Sylva café, Oakwood, Leeds

Bill’s, Coney Street, York

Level access, buzzy atmosphere, helpful staff, accessible loo. Food not that impressive.

Mamma Mia’s, Gillygate, York

Great Italian food, accessible if you can cope with fairly high thresholds, accessible loo but restaurant a bit crowded for easy manoeuvring. No parking but cars can mount pavement to drop-off outside.

George Hotel, West Bay, Bridport, Dorset (by mrsmeh)

Ramped entrance, good pub food, helpful staff.

Middlethorpe Hall, York

Only accessible via temporary ramps and loos are in basement – lift probably too small for wheelchairs or scooters. Staff very helpful and food lovely. Conference room all on one level with accessible loo.

The Parsonage Hotel, Escrick near York

Accessible (although threshold a little high) via side entrance. Helpful staff, food nothing special.

Cedar Court Grand Hotel and Spa

Accessible via a platform lift in the entrance area. Staff very helpful.
