The cycle of life in the gardens and fields at Askham Hall dictate our menus. We work with the seasons and grow, source and preserve the produce from our gardens, farms and woodland.
We offer our guests two dining possibilities:
Dining in smaller groups (six or less), and
Larger parties of six or more.
A special set menu based on the above two options which will be set close to the day depending on what produce is at it's very best at that moment. If you have any particular preferences these can also be taken into consideration in preparing your special set menu subject to price confirmation.
In a building as beautifully crafted as ours, everyday you can dine differently.
Climb our sweeping stone staircase to find `The Bishops Dining Room' where dinner is best taken beneath tear drop windows. Happen upon `The Hilyard' to feast at portly tables laden with spit roast meats and served in the shadows of our fireside. Duck-or-grouse down our countryside steps to `The Derwent' - the most perfect and cosy snug just made for Afternoon Tea and chatter. Or stumble across `The Crypt', our medieval vaulted pub harbouring weary pioneers on the hunt for Real Ale dished up with a generous side of famous `Bar Bait'.
