Fodor's Review

The peaceful rural location of this "restaurant with rooms" belies the sophistication of its distinctive cooking, which has consistently led to its being rated as one of the top five not only in Yorkshire but in the UK. With an emphasis on seasonal ingredients, creative combinations of flavors, and elegant presentations, the kitchen turns out such appetizers as wild garlic tarts with artichoke and apple, or truffled rabbit and smoked chicken with persimmons. Main courses might include honeyed quail with polenta and marjoram or John Dory with scallops. The dessert selection is fabulous, so save room. The dinner menu is pricey, but the set menu at lunch (£40, except on Sundays when it's £50) is a good value. The restaurant is housed in a medieval building that dates back to the 11th century (the monks of nearby Fountains Abbey made cheese in the cellar), and the 11 rooms are spacious and charming. There are also four modern courtyard rooms. Rooms start at £345, which includes dinner and breakfast.
