Really enjoyed our meals here. It's really great to go somewhere that a meat eater (myself) and a vegan (my gf) can both eat something top class and one of us not having to compromise with a menu choice that's clearly an afterthought or loosen our morals so we can eat together. The food was awesome and the staff were nice . Thanks source.

I already can't wait for my next trip to york to try more of this food! Great mix of Vegan and non vegan food which made both me and my bf happy! I had the avocado followed by vegan ribs and partner has a cauliflower starter which can be made vegan followed by beef brisket. Both waitresses were lovely and were very knowledgeable about the menu even though it was new! As a vegan i was absolutely spoiled for choice! i am used to only having one or two things to choose from !

Bf finishes with a chocolate sundae and i even had a VEGAN CREME BRULEE !!! made my night haha !

I visited Source recently with my partner and friends due to them offering a decent vegan menu. I went a few years ago and really enjoyed the food so I was looking forward to it!

I ordered the vegan fried chicken which came with a bunch of southern-style sides which were all delicious. It’s good to have vegan coleslaw with a creamy dressing as most places don’t bother with those sorts of touches! I was also really impressed that I got 9 pieces of vegan chicken. At over £13 though, I felt like it was pretty expensive. I understand the costs involved in running a restaurant but as far as I’m aware there were no particular “speciality” ingredients involved. As it was a unique dish I was just about happy to pay it.

However, my partner ordered the BBQ jackfruit which although delicious was really small. Again, it came with a range of southern-style sides but we felt like the amount of jackfruit was pretty tiny. Whereas I thought I had a large portion of food his was pretty small so it seems a bit like luck as to the amount of food you’ll be served. Again, this dish was priced at over £13 and it felt too expensive due to the portion size.

Overall Source is a nice place to eat and the food is good but it definitely suits people with a higher budget!

What a fantastic meal! We loved everything. The food was gorgeous. Particularly enjoyed the grilled avocado with lime and the slow cooked brisket.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
Can't wait to go back.

We went to this restaurant with our two boys aged 5 and 7, the staff was very friendly with them as we waited for our food, and the meals were delicious and very nicely presented. A good selection for vegetarians.
