Two MICHELIN Stars : Excellent cooking, worth a detour!
The personality and talent of the chef and their team is evident in the expertly crafted dishes, which are refined, inspired and sometimes original.
This former drovers’ inn in a pretty rural village was originally part of the Raby Estate and its name refers to it being a favourite finishing point for the old hunt. It’s owned by the Close family, with son James heading up the open kitchen, which looks out over the sleek, clean-lined dining room. Self-taught chef James is full of passion and in his pursuit of perfection, has never missed a service. His enticing, highly original menu is a showcase of precision, from a selection of snacks that reflect his global travels to signature dishes such as a seasonal salad of 48-52 top-notch ingredients, presented in a beguiling array of textures and temperatures. To conclude, you’ll find some of the country’s most sublime desserts. Chic, restful bedrooms complete the picture.
