Riverview Restaurant

Dine with a view in our light and airy Riverside Restaurant, which overlooks the Tees. Our menus reflect the changing seasons and feature dishes made from locally sourced fresh ingredients. Expect the likes of oven-baked lemon sole, steak and ale pie and chicken supreme with dauphinoise potatoes. And be sure to leave room for dessert - Eton mess or chocolate fudge cake perhaps?
A hearty breakfast is served every morning, and if you want to treat someone special, book a delectable afternoon tea with selection of dainty sandwiches and pastries.
During the spring and summer months, you can also dine alfresco on the beautiful riverside terrace.
