Freshly prepared by the team of talented chefs, the food includes favorites like Gressingham Duck Spring rolls, pan fried King Scallops and hand pressed Steak Burgers.

Dine al fresco or in the marquee - there is even an ‘exclusive use’ option to put your special event in the spotlight.

having driven passed this venue for years on the A64 we decided to give it a try. The inside is far better than the look from the road, so dont do as we did and miss out. The staff give a very warm welcome and are happily attentive. The food is fresh and also 'yorkshire' portions...our selection did not disappoint. It's not high end cuisine but nevertheless very good and value for money. We shall call again when in area.

Reading some other reviews, we were not sure about going to the Tanglewood. True, with its theatrical themed decor, it is a bit quirky but we enjoyed identifying the stars in the photos and posters whilst waiting for our meals. Service was friendly and timely. The choice and quality of the food was good and value for money in comparison with other restaurants in the area - although child friendly, the menus and surroundings were, in our view, aimed more towards adult customers

It’s fantastic to hear that you had a great experience with us and you found the staff friendly and food great. The décor is from our owner’s personal collection and is very important to him due to working in the Theatre industry.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!
