The Old Deanery has old fashioned courtesy and old fashioned linen sheets. It also has style. Style in furnishings, style in its cuisine and if ever a hotel deserved a Michelin star it is this one. Describing itself as a 'Restaurant with Rooms' allows a smile. But when the bill is presented in the morning the smile radiates. At £25 per head for two courses at dinner and £105 b&b for a room fit for the eclesiastical heirarchy, with a bath that could house the whole Chapter, I have never experienced such grace and imagination at this price in an English hotel. The chef creates dishes from locally sourced ingredients and presents them beautifully. My Rose Veal was cooked to just the right side of pink and a bottle of light,crisp Rose complimented it perfectly. My wife's Sea Bass, caught off the North Yorkshire Coast, was served on a bed of samphire and set off with Cod cheeks. Breakfast was sumptuous with locally made butter, home made bread and fresh eggs allowing a choice of smoked salmon or smoked haddock also. Brake's Brothers were excommunicated a long time ago. This restuarant has earned its accolades.
