eating & drinking at the Cleveland Tontine

With its beautiful Grade 1 listed ceiling and huge open fire, our Bistro is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy our fantastic food and wine. Provenance is at the heart of our menus. Our head chef showcases the very best in local produce from our legendary Yorkshire breakfast to our fabulous Yorkshire beef, hung and aged on site.

There’s nothing more indulgent than Afternoon Tea, and here at the Tontine you’re in for a treat. Freshly baked cakes, delicious scones and sandwiches all served in an elegant ‘room with a view’ – perfect!

If it’s something light you’re after, take advantage of our lunch time Lounge Menu and enjoy soup, salads, sandwiches and sweet treats. Perfect for a midday meeting or an impromptu get together with friends.

We have plenty of options for private dining, parties and business meetings too, from our intimate Snug to the glamorous Cleveland Room.

Polite Notice: access to the restaurant and hotel is via a pair of staircases, and we can assist guests if required, by making us aware when making their reservation with us. A garden entrance is available into our main conservatory.
