I love it here in the summer, the courtyard is pretty, a peacock casually wanders through.. My partner and I have been twice and enjoyed the first time more than the second but will definately be returning. The first visit we ordered sharing platters and then desserts which were all delicious and the second time we had main courses which... More

First of all I would just like to say the location and venue it self is beautiful. Unfortunately even though we had booked in advance when we were seated it felt very unorganised as the table we were seated at was one large table then a very small table plonked on the end makng 3 of the party feeling like...

Love the setting here so decided to book an evening meal for nine, some of whom had travelled a long way. I emphasised to the person taking the booking the number of people/time/date - only one of these was recorded correctly, despite my attempts x three to make sure the information had been understood! On arriving, only a table for... More

We have been going to the bistro here for sometime now and indeed stayed in the lovely lodges. Food is always nice but after having our last meal here we felt the menu could do with an update and some new dishes, as we have pretty much exhausted the menu now, so some new dishes would be a welcome change....

Not been for a while and pleasantly surprised at new layout and food. We had rib-eye steaks that were excellent. Staff brilliant. Seems some positive changes have been made.

Visited restaurant last week and sat outside in the sunshine to eat. Food was fantastic. New restaurant manager came to introduce himself and was very attentive. Will be returning very soon.

Couldn't fault the surroundings on this sunny day of our visit . We tried the 'taster' which consisted of, 2 small crab fish cakes, 2 lemon chicken pieces and 2 tiger prawns (£10). How three very different items could taste the same is amazing ,even the dips couldn't save this meal. Maybe just a drink next time.

My husband and enjoyed great food on a Friday evening at this restaurant. The location on a warm summer evening is particularly pleasing, set back off a winding road on the way to Great Ayton. We sat outside on the sun terrace - cover available if required. There is a large weeping willow tree on a grassed area in front... More
