Brassiere 1

Brasserie1 is an informal, contemporary recent addition to this grand Victorian hotel. Brasserie1 and the adjoining Bar have French windows which open out onto a terrace at the front of the hotel with views of the hotel's gardens and the Yorkshire Moors beyond. Decorated in a pleasing mix of modern and traditional design with the benefit of a light bright environment and on winter evenings an open fire adding to the ambience. The menu combines simplicity with excellent locally sourced ingredients and offers a relatively narrow selection to ensure a consistently high standard with the choice changing regularly to maximise the use of produce appropriate to each season.
