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.

lovely food

we ate in this restaurant twice, the food was very good both times. My meats we tender& cooked just to my liking & masters fish was "spot on" when I asked him. Our meals were part of an inclusive deal but the menu was the same either way.

Both my husband and I eat out and enjoy new food so it was a surprise to order what sounded like a fairly normal meal (lamb and veal) and to discover such exciting new tastes.

My fiancé and I went for a 2 night stay last year to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. It was beautiful. Everything from start to finish was fantastic! My fiancé is lactose, wheat and yeast intolerant and they were able to accommodate his needs without any disruption to us. I look forward to going back again when time allows!

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

The meal was very good, not a lot to choose from but from experience less is usually done far better, here this was certainly true. 7 people ate and my 16 year old daughter tried something new for all 3 courses and loved them all, only slight issue, had to pour own wine a couple of times as waiter was...

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.
