What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
City of York Council

West Offices, Station Rise, York YO1 6GA, UK – 01904 551550

I've only had experience with going in and talking with the front line but all my experiences have been very positive and staff helpful. There is an easy enough to follow ticket system, get your ticket, wait, and you can see on the many monitors when it's your turn and how many people before you. Lots of places to sit too and computers to use.

Guildhall

St. Helen’s Square, York YO1 9QN, UK – 01904 613161

Went here for the York Christmas Market and there were good vendors with plenty of good product. A hidden gem in town.

My favourite location in all of York. The coat of arms amongst the flagstones is particularly impressive. A tour of the chambers with it's secret passageways is a must. Watch out for the rats as you head down the ramp into the Ouse River.

Mansion House

St. Helen’s Square, York YO1 9QL, UK – 01904 552036

Very pretty well kept house worth a visit. Ask for the audio guide device when buying your ticket (it's free) and your visit will be much more enjoyable! Staff was friendly and helpful. They recommended a great Cosy cafe afterwards where we had a lovely hot chocolate (best in york!)!

A beautiful building

Dental Surgeries

Andrea Ubhi Dentistry

22 Goodramgate, York YO1 7LG, UK – 01904 639667

Just been today for the second stage of my implant. The skill and technical ability of Dr Adam Glassford and his team of nurses are unbelievable. The whole set up from the receptionists right through to the Dental Surgeons and Andrea Ubhi herself, give a very relaxed and family atmosphere to this dental practice. The standard is set high and that is definitely what you get. First class. I would advise anyone to consider Andrea Ubhi Dentistry for their dental work. The reason five stars. Just excellent!

Great friendly staff, really good care. Can tell all the staff are really passionate about their work and my partner has been absolutely delighted with her veneers by Dr Glassford. Great coffee :-)

Bupa Dental Care York - Lawrence Street

107 Lawrence St, City Centre, York YO10 3EF, UK – 01904 411993

Myself and hubby have had excellent dental treatments from Liz Gibson for the past 20 years. Genuinely sad to hear she's left the practice. Liz always made our bi-annual check ups light-hearted with her humour.. Please send her our future good wishes. That said, an infected wisdom tooth requiring a short notice appointment was dealt with very well by Mr Browne. The practice is professional, friendly and has a good duty of care.

I've been with the dentist for over 30 years, very helpful staff as I am so scared! Natalia Sobczak who has been my dentist for a couple of years now is excellent. I would highly recommend this practice. 5stars all the way.

Nunnery Lane Dental Practice

97A Nunnery Ln, York YO23 1AH, UK – 01904 639779

I'm so scared because I was unconscious during treatment in Japan when I was young. I'm Japanese. I told a doctor in the dentist about it and a doctor in Japan didn't give me "nerve sleeping injection" He released my worries about the pain and all staff are so friendly. I am so impressed by his skills. No pain!!!!! He is so excellent! All staff working at the dentist are so nice!!!!

Skin Doctor York

66 Blossom St, York YO24 1AP, UK – 01904 633833

Priory Medical Group

Clementhorpe Health Centre, Cherry Street, York YO23 1AP, UK – 01904 646898

Following a slight complication with my medication the surgery gave me a courtesy call to check that everything was okay. Great attention to detail.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Treatment satisfactory. Thankyou.

My husband has spent many weeks over the last few years in York Hospital and the care he received was second to none. All the doctors, nurses and care workers are wonderful.

Nuffield Health York Hospital

Haxby Rd, York YO31 8TA, UK – 01904 715000

The aftercare I received following my knee operation was absolutely appalling, I was informed to "check on the internet" because the surgeon neglected to inform me of the what he had actually done to my knee and whether I was to use crutches or not. I left the hospital with no stick or crutches, holding onto my friend's arm and the wall, in tears and pain, in order to leave the hospital. Except for the receptionist no-one came to my assistance! Having said that, once I was actually seen by a physio therapist, the care, imparting of knowledge and management of my progress has been outstanding.

Celebrating international nurses day !

York Elim Pentecostal Church (Sunday Morning Meeting)

Archbishop Holgate’s School, Hull Rd, York YO10 5ZA, UK – 01904 422322

I love York Elim. The church lunch on the first week of every month is a particular highlight! The youth work is fantastic. My boys have been enjoying the food related Sunday school this term. The variation is great. I recently got back from a men's weekend which I thoroughly enjoyed. Elim is a wonderful community who really practice what they preach and love each other.

We've been part of York Elim for 8 years and we love it. There are people of all ages and lots of backgrounds and nationalities. We really appreciate the music and the teaching. Now with a young baby we're glad we can use the creche in the middle of church and not miss out on any of the meeting!

St Nicks - Nature Reserve & Environment Centre

I visit this lovely little nature reserve at least once a week. I'm amazed at the richness of the wildlife here - and it's just a mile from the centre of York. Take your time walking through the reserve - and keep your eyes open. You never know what you might see! I've seen both Kingfishers and Water Voles on Tang Hall Beck, where it flows through the reserve

Great place, with lovely staff. They do our recycling and they do a great job.

York Community Furniture Store Ltd

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Heslington

D'vine

20-24 Swinegate, Dvine Restaurant And Social bar, York YO1 8AZ, UK – 01904 633700

Of all the restaurants we've tried in York, we finally came across this little gem. Great ambience and atmosphere, superb menu and excellent staff. Food exceeded all our expectations and for a reasonable price. All served by smart attentive well trained staff. It was that good , we returned the following night for dinner and will definitely be going back.

Excellent from the minute we walked in the door. Although they run a special offer menu which is really good we chose to order from the main menu. What good choices we made. Excellent presentation and taste.

Everest Gurkha Nepalese Restaurant

7 Fossgate, York YO1 9TA, UK – 01904 622688

My days, the momo's are amazing!! Great great food. Different but very flavoursome. Had a lovely chat with the owner who offered an insight in Nepalese cuisine. Can't recommend enough.

Had a great set meal here with my wife. The owners are actually from Nepal and that shows in the food. Think of it as less spicy Indian with a dusting of vegetarian and you are there. The lamb dish was great :-)

The Raj Restaurant

21-23 Bootham, York YO30 7BW, UK – 01904 612017

Indian food, made bland for Brits, Very value for money!!! Centrally located near York Castle. £3-4 each dish. Don't expect North Indian style spicy preparations! Nice staff. Treated us to liquors on our Anniversary!!!

Very standard British curry house. Don't need to see the menu to order. All your favs are on offer. It was cheap, cheerful and a bit bland. Also thought food was a bit cold. Pleasant service.

Bootham School

49-57 Bootham, York YO30 7BU, UK – 01904 623261

As parents we find Bootham School brimming with many qualities, there is a calming atmosphere punctuated with a strong sense of purpose,- forming a perfect baseline to facilitate learning and self confidence. "Adventurous & Liberating" is the School mantra. Our two children have made some wonderful friends and from starting Bootham in year seven, have never looked back. The teaching staff are supportive and motivating. The activities after 1600 hrs add another dimension to the learning and development of children, giving them a taste of things they (and we) would probably never think of in the fast paced world in which we live. Finally, the food is consistently of the highest quality and the children (& us on Saturdays),look forward to every meal !

As a former pupil, I cannot sing their praises high enough. I came from a school (St Olaves) where I was bullied for many years. I was generally miserable and had low self confidence. Bootham brought me out of that shell. The teachers were all lovely, I may not have liked every subject, but i still liked the teachers. The ethos and attitude of staff and pupils quickly formed me into a totally different more caring person. I was much happier, my grades rose and I joined as many after school activities as I could. At my previous school I never wanted to stay longer than I had to. At Bootham I never wanted to leave. School lunches were also amazing, In the 7 years since I left I have tried to keep my home food as varied and healthy as the lunches I got at school. Friends and family love the food I make and I still don't think it is as good as my school food was. I wasn't the only pupil to go to Bootham after being bullied, I think it attracts a lot of kids who are kind and bright but have been stifled through adverse experiences. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is more introverted and wants to develop in a caring and protective environment which still prepares you for the world ahead. My friends and employers have commented on how kind and hard working I am. These are qualities I am certain I formed during my time at Bootham. In the sixth form they give you more freedom and if staff think you are capable they stop spoon feeding information. Deferring to guiding your own research. This was a invaluable skill when it came to university.

York Steiner School

25 Fulford Cross, York YO10 4PB, UK – 01904 654983

Not just a school, but a community. From birth (Gentle Beginnings), through the toddler years (Parent & Child Groups), pre-school (Kindergarten) to the Main School (age 6 - 14) York Steiner School offers a nurturing environment and a rounded education. Highly recommended.

Best school ever.
