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

Lovely place to eat and gorgeous surroundings, however if you're a veggie I'd advise not going here. We went for a Sunday roast and couldn't see a veggie option on the menu, I asked the waitress if there was one, her reply was "yes we can do one, it's the same as everyone else's but without the meat", she then...

We booked whinstone view for a staff meal for 40 people. The food was delicious, the setting was perfect and the service was brilliant. It's the perfect setting for a large do or a romantics meal for too. Thoroughly enjoyed and will be back again!

Excellent food, beautiful peaceful surroundings, the service is very polite and helpful but painfully slow. We've been here about 4 times and I would make the same comments each time. I don't want to wait 10 minutes to be given a menu and asked what I'd like to drink, then another 10 minutes waiting for the drink to come.

Sorry to hear that you believe the service side to be on the slow side. I do pride myself on giving great customer service and even I know that at times I am going to fail and that thee may be times during extremely busy periods that diners may have a wait. During very busy periods I do try to... More
