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.

I've only been for food so can't comment on the hotel or spa (though I've heard bad things). Been for food thrice. Eleven dishes in total. Two of the eleven, to be fare, were exceptional and I'll remember them. The other nine though were 3 x OK, 3 x bad, 3 x shockingly awful. Customer service is approaching the worst... More

Been for afternoon tea and Sunday lunch before. This time it was afternoon tea and we were so disappointed how much the quality and quantity had changed (for the worse). Price slightly up too. For £19.00 each you expect better than this and I can list several delightful places between Sandsend and Scarborough which lick the Raithwaite into fits. The... More

A faultless 3 course evening meal for my wife & I in quiet comfortable surroundings. Service to match from Kevin & Shu. It's a pity we live 130 miles away as we'd dine here on a regular basis. The icing on the cake of great stay at Raithwaite hall. Thanks

The restaurant manager was un professional in delaing with our complaint after my partner cut his finger on a... More

We wanted somewhere special for a meal to celebrate my father-in-law’s 75th birthday and decided to try the Brace Restaurant at Raithwaite Hall. We couldn’t have chosen anywhere better. The Hall and grounds are very impressive and we were warmly and very professionally welcomed by all the reception, bar and dining staff, they even wished my father-in-law a happy birthday.... More

Myself and two friends came for a drink and a snack to Raithwaite Hall thinking we were going to have a different experience in a top class establishment, How wrong can you be ? The sandwiches we ordered came and had absolutely no fillings in them whatsoever, a scraping of tuna one slice of cucumber, 6 crisps and a handful... More
