If you haven’t heard about Taste Card before it is basically a membership scheme that gives you some pretty incredible discounts in restaurants across the country.

Sample Taste CardThere are two offers that restaurants can chose to make available. The first is a 50% off discount. With just one Taste Card all diners in a party can enjoy 50% off their food bill (just be aware that individual restaurants might limit the maximum number permitted in a party).

The second offer is a 2 for 1 deal on main courses – and is more aimed at couples. You’ll get the cheaper dish free but sides and extras aren’t included.

A mix of restaurants in York are signed up to the scheme, including independents as well as bigger chains like Prezzo, Pizza Express, Strada, Zizzi and ASK Italian.

If you regularly eat out, Taste Card is a great way to save money – even if it’s only once a month.

Taste Card cannot be used alongside any other offer – and in some cases this includes set menu deals. (Always best to check before you order rather than having an awkward conversation when you come to settle your bill).

There are some 41 restaurants and bars in York where you can use your Taste Card, including the following:

Restaurants are allowed to set their own Taste Card policies. Some exclude Friday and Saturday nights, others the entire month of December. Quite a few require you to call ahead and explicitly mention that you have a Taste Card. You can check individual restaurant policies and find a full list of Taste Card restaurants in York here.
