REVIEW | The York Roast Co
I’ve been meaning to try out The York Roast Co for ages after they invented the Yorkshire pudding wrap which became a massive media sensation. It got a whopping 25 million views on a single Facebook clip and has been raved about by everyone from the likes of This Morning to The Guardian. Therefore, it was about time the Girl About crew got in on the Yorky action and I can report back that it was worth the wait!
Yorkshire puddings are the Holy Grail of Yorkshire cuisine and this place is a temple to the fluffy creations. Why on earth should this county’s finest culinary masterpiece be reserved for just Sundays? Well, we can get our everyday Yorky pud fix at The York Roast Co. Their signature Yorky pud wrap consists of a full roast dinner rolled up burrito-style in a flattened Yorkshire pudding. It’s a genius concept to use a Yorky instead of bread to create the ultimate roast dinner sandwich. Proper Yorkshire fast food.
With Christmas fast approaching, I opted for their special Yorky pud Christmas wrap. It had the full works of roast turkey, stuffing, pigs in blankets, a dollop of mulled cranberry red cabbage, sprouts and a drizzle of thick gravy, all wrapped up in a giant Yorkshire pudding. And I mean GIANT! This was one hefty wrap and it was quite a challenge to eat it in a remotely lady-like fashion. But who gives a stuff about that! This is not first date food. This is gravy dripping down your chin, shove it all in food. I bloomin loved it! The meat was succulent, the Yorkshire pudding was crispy and all the trimmings worked together to make this a really tasty, hearty delight.
You can pick some sides to go with your wrap. I chose roast potatoes which came in a cup-size portion but to be honest I barely touched them as the Yorky pud wrap was so darn filling. Other options are crackling, veg, stuffing or even extra mini Yorkshire puddings for those who can’t get enough of the golden beauties.
The Girl About blog squad have had some heated debate lately about whether Yorkshire puddings belong with a traditional Christmas turkey dinner. That classic festive conundrum. Our conclusion is that hell yeah they do and so they jolly well should, given that we’re in Yorkshire! The York Roast Co wrap them together perfectly with their Christmas Yorky pud. By ‘eck it’s good.
Thank you to The York Roast Co for inviting me. Yorky pud wraps start from £5.75 (the Christmas wrap is £6.95) and are available to take away, eat in or order via Deliveroo.
There are 2 branches in the centre of York – 78 Low Petergate, YO1 7HZ and 4 Stonegate, YO1 8AS.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
Before I move onto the impeccable five-course tasting menu, it’s only fair to mention that Grays Court is the only hotel in York with private access to the city’s mediaeval city walls and the view of the Minster from some of the hotel’s well-appointed rooms is incredible. There’re only 12 rooms making this little piece of 12th century Jacobean real-estate more like a rather large and rather plush family home than a hotel.
Food trucks offering an epic selection of food flavours from across the world hosted under the iconic railway arches of Glasgow Central station. This place ticks all my boxes – kid-friendly, dogs welcome, great food selection, beer to keep the hubby happy (including a microbrewery within), play area to burn off some toddler energy – but not compromising on style, decent wine if required or cool location.
Thyme Café is the perfect balance between eating in a nice establishment, without feeling awkward for taking small children. Great food, where the standard does not drop for the kid’s menu.
Loads of tasty choices on the menu, enough to keep you wanting to go back several times over!!
