Set in 200 acres of North Yorkshire, this informal bar/brasserie is an “interesting conversion of stables attached to the main house” (there is also a posher dining option here, ‘The Forge’). An all-day operation, it offers food that’s “reliable and well presented” from a series of menus, including breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner (with the focus on Mediterranean char grills).

For 29 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Have you eaten at The Coach House?

Owner's description

Middleton Lodge is a Georgian country estate and a family home. Built in 1780 by the architect John Carr, it is a classic example of a Palladian country house. The estate is set in 200 acres of our own beautiful English countryside, with views across North Yorkshire.

The Main House, still home to the Allison family, is available for private hire. It has become a favourite for weddings, balls, shooting parties, photoshoots and has appeared in film and television productions. The events team has repeatedly won accolades at national level.

The Coach House Restaurant, Hotel and Treatment Rooms, in the lovingly restored honey coloured sandstone stables and farmhouse buildings, has become a destination in its own right, winning awards from the Good Hotel Guide and Alistair Sawdays Special Places to Stay. For the ultimate in relaxation, The Treatment Rooms focus on natural, holistic facial and body treatments from VOYA, REN and Kiss The Moon.

The emphasis in the restaurant is on homemade local seasonal produce, where possible sourced from the estate. The courtyard gardens, filled with lavender, rose, apple and rosemary make their way onto your plate. We have recently been restoring our 2.5 acre kitchen garden and orangery, which will provide produce for the restaurant.

We are five minutes from Richmond; ten minutes from Tees Valley Airport and Darlington Train station; 40 minutes from Newcastle, an hour from York and 2.5 hours from London via train.
