Roots York




Please check websites of all organisations or businesses before you visit. With the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, many businesses are changing their opening hours.

James and Tommy Banks and their parents Anne and Tom, from The Black Swan at Oldstead, have been joined by Matt Lockwood to establish the new restaurant in the old building of The Bay Horse on Marygate in York.

We have roots in Oldstead where The Banks family have lived and farmed for generations. The ingredients that we grow and forage there are the roots of our menu and our passion to design and create is at the root of everything we do.

Chef, Tommy Banks’s talent is in itself truly remarkable. He was Britain’s youngest Michelin-starred chef in 2013 and a winner of BBC Two’s Great British Menu in both 2016 and 2017. He has also appeared on BBC’s Saturday Kitchen and MasterChef.
