We offer three rooms in the property, over our first and second floors. Each room is beautifully appointed, spacious, and comfortable. All feature a super-king size bed and en-suite walk-in shower room. There are no single or twin rooms.

Single-night stays are recommended so as not to repeat the restaurant experience. For similar reasons, we’d also recommend not dining for lunch if you already have a dinner reservation with us.

Alternative local stays are also available:

Castle Howard

The Feversham Arms

The Pheasant Hotel

We have a large free car park to the rear of the property for our customers.

We are in a very old, listed building, so unfortunately there are some areas which have limited accessibility.

There are two small steps to the bar area, through both the front door and between the dining room and bar.

We do not have a disabled access toilet.

Please let us know any requirements in advance so we may allocate you the best table for your needs.

Yes. Just inform us at least 72 hours prior to your booking date – otherwise we won’t be able to make the changes and you will still be charged.

If you are making a group booking, it is your responsibility to make us aware of any dietary requirements for all guests in your group.

Whilst we follow best practice at all times, our dishes are created in an environment where allergens are prepared, stored and cooked. This makes it unsuitable for those with severe allergies, as we are unable to gurantee the menu will be completely allergen free. These are the allergens we are unable to cater for:

Dairy, including butter, cream and cheese
Wheat and gluten
Soy
Allium
Mustard
Mushroom
Suphites
Egg

We are unable to offer vegan or gluten-free options.

For any other dietary requirement, the alternative dish will be taken from our vegetarian menu. Just inform us at least 72 hours prior to your booking date – otherwise we won’t be able to make the changes and you will still be charged.

If you are making a group booking, it is your responsibility to make us aware of any dietary requirements for all guests in your group.

Yes, as long as we have at least 72 hours’ notice. Your deposit in non-refundable and non-transferable if there are any cancellations or amendments to bookings (in part or whole) with less than 72 hours notice.

This charge reflects the cost of food, drink and staffing incurred with short-notice changes. However, if we are able to successfully re-sell your booking at short notice, we are able to offer a refund or transfer to a new date.

Any refund made for a cancelled booking will be less a 3% administration fee.

Modifications to your booking are subject to availability.
