A grand treat: ASK in the York Assembly Rooms

Kind friends treated us to a delicious meal in ASK, in the York Assembly Rooms.  The venue was amazing, and the service friendly. The food and drink was scrumptious and gorgeous, respectively, but the toilets were only average, if that.

The toilet itself was clean, but the toilet seat was unpleasantly askew.  The loo roll holder was hygienically covered, but the cover served absolutely no purpose, as the toilet roll itself was on the floor.  It was, however, plain white and relatively free of pretension.  The cubicle was cramped, and the bin unpleasantly close.  The coat hook, however, was excellent.

To our delight there were mixer taps, but the water was only lukewarm.  The soap, however, had a pleasant scent.  There were only air dryers. It was not possible to exit without touching the door handle.

Total points: 3/15 

The restaurant was busy, and so were its toilets, and therefore it was unfortunately not possible for us to take more pictures (it being ever our aim not to appear unduly eccentric).  However, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Assembly Rooms at this website:
