Kneeton Lane, Middleton Tyas, Richmond DL10 6NJ

The chefs at The Coach House work closely with their gardening team to bring sustainably-focused food from the estate to your plate – and they work with local producers to bring you the best the North has to offer. Their seasonal dishes are always packed full of flavour, from smoked salmon crumpet with poached Wensleydale eggs to grilled Hartlepool mackerel with garden chervil mayonnaise. Whether you’re celebrating or treating yourself, you can be sure of a relaxed dining experience within characterful surroundings.

The Burgoyne Hotel
On The Green, Reeth, Richmond DL11 6SN
01748 884292

The menu at the Burgoyne’s 1783 Bar and Restaurant is all about fine dining in a relaxed and informal setting. The chefs here are passionate about home-grown food and they grow their own produce in their kitchen garden. Their eggs Benedict with Yorkshire ham is a real hit, but our highlight is on the dinner menu – the duo of spring lamb (lamb rump, ballotine, sticky red cabbage, pommes Anna, baby roast veg and a red wine jus).
