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.

Roots York is open between Thursday and Sunday for lunch and dinner.
