Intimate, relaxed dining in the most sublime of atmospheres, and of course exquisite food. That's what guest's enjoy when they take a seat in the Brace Restaurant. Our restaurant takes all the best elements of a traditional steak house and creates a stunning gourmet experience that is not easily beaten.All the meat served in the Brace Restaurant has been reared by Yorkshire farmers, and is cooked the traditional way and grilled on the bone in order to maximise the flavour.With the bounty of the North Sea a stones throw away, guests who visit the Brace Restaurant are not restricted to the finest meats Yorkshire has to offer, but also some of the finest fish and shellfish in the world.

Dinner for two

Good quality food, locally sourced and beautifully presented. Good wine list but pricey. Restaurant mainly full of couples. Service was a bit slow and looked after by many different staff. Wine waiter however was excellent!

Lovely Yorkshire food with a touch of style and an excellent choice of wines. We loved the Petit Chablis. The chef is certainly aiming for fine dining and some of it worked well. The smoked potato mash with the venison was a revelation and the venison was cooked to perfection. My scallops were just 'okay' if a bit cold on... More

Staff were attentive and friendly. Evening waiter had good knowledge of menu and wines. Food was cooked perfectly, and I enjoyed the use of local produce. Prices are not every day but good for a treat.

This is for one of their restaurants, The Brace - I will start by saying that the manager was kind enough not to charge us for dinner in the end but the list of mistakes warrants more than just paying for the bill - they need to revisit...

We just checked into the Raithwaite Estate, and had booked the Brace Restaurant as we had a long travel day and wanted to relax and be spoiled at the hotel's premier restaurant. Our booking was for 7, but we were hungry and were told that they could accommodate us at 6:30. Prior to our arrival, I had sent an email... More

The food at the Brace Restaurant and Grill was amazing, I had the monkfish as a main and it was lovely. A perfect anniversary celebration. The staff and service were top notch too :)

We visited the Brace restaurant and Grill during our stay on the Raithwaite Estate. An excellent menu choice cooked to perfection. My wife, daughter and son-in-law were well impressed. We will definitely be revisiting.
