Featured Ripon Restaurants
1. Samuel’s, Swinton Park Hotel & Spa British, Modern restaurant in Masham Swinton Park - HG4
With its gold-leaf decoration, the stylish dining room of this grand country house hotel and spa provides a traditionally luxurious backdrop to a meal. But ratings have come off the boil a little with personnel changes. Mehdi Amiri – in post since mid-2017 – sometimes gave reporters the impression that “the sheer confidence and assurance typically found here was lacking”. He himself then moved on after our survey in summer 2019. We have maintained last year’s survey scores on the bet that further changes are more likely to be positive than negative, but further upheavals may be afoot.
3. Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall British, Modern restaurant in Grantley , - HG4
This newly refurbished luxury hotel and spa in the heart of Yorkshire opens in Summer 2019, with Shaun Rankin in charge of the main restaurant; there will also be an Asian restaurant (EightyEight) and a casual all-day restaurant (Fletchers).
4. The Terrace, Swinton Park Hotel & Spa British, Modern restaurant in Masham Swinton Rd - HG4
2018 Review: Chris McPhee, formerly head chef at Three Chimneys on the Isle of Skye, heads up this grand country house hotel’s new upscale all-day café, which opened in summer 2017 and adds a more relaxed dining destination than the well-known Samuel’s; the aim is to use as much produce from the estate as possible.
5. ChefsTable at TRUEfoods British, Modern restaurant in Melmerby 9 Hallikeld Close - HG4
A tasting-menu-only chef's table (10 seats) that's the test kitchen for TRUEfoods, makers of proper stocks and sauces for retail and much of the hospitality industry.
