Review on D.C.H at the Dean Court

I love the table that overlooks the Minster writes one Mobile Food Guide user, D.C.H at the Dean Court boasts one of the finest locations in the city of York with not only fabulous views of the Minster but also first-rate cuisine. The restaurant is stylish, contemporary and elegant with superb design features and is the only Restaurant within the city walls with 2 AA Rosettes.

Chef Paul Laidlaw looks to local producers for ingredients and the cooking is modern yet simple in style with the well-balanced menu including popular dishes like Yorkshire ham-hock terrine with chorizo quince and thyme dressing, roast butternut squash veloute, haunch of local venison celeriac, roasted pear, rosemary glaze or roasted monkfish, scallops & mussels simmered in a coconut lime and chilli broth, bok choi stir fry. This was Chef Andrew Bingham's famous signature dish and one that helped put D.C.H on the gastronomic map.

Service is willing and relaxed, and there's an excellent choice of wines by the glass from the extensive wine list. Sunday lunch is a great treat with roast sirloin of Yorkshire beef carved at your table while on Tuesday nights the mood changes as the Minster bells practice provides the background music.
