Advantages: Nice meat
Disadvantages: Cost of Drinks
We had Sunday Lunch at Russells in August and found the whole experience a total rip off. Firstly, at £10.95 for lunch it was a little pricey but we thought we'd treat ourselves. The meat was very nice and plenty of it, but the vegetables were very limited by mixing peas with sweetcorn and mashed carrotts with swede, obviously if you don't like one of these veg this excluded both to you. Then they put the gravey on the plate which is not to everyones taste. But the worst was to come when we got the bill, the drinks we ordered were a glass of lemon & Lime and a pint of lager shandy. The cost of these drinks were extortionate. They charged us £1.85 for a glass of lemonade plus 50p for a dash of lime. The lager shandy was £3.70 for the pint of lager and 50p for a dash of lemondade. Total cost for 2 drinks came to £6.55!! Needless to say we will not be visiting Russells again. We knew that Dick Turpin has visited York, but didn't realise he was still there!
Summary: Extortionate cost of sunday lunch
