Over the last 16 years we have created a unique partnership with Newby Hall and North York Moors National Park Authority at Sutton Bank and 2015 saw the start of a new and exciting joint venture with Harewood House. At our enchanting tea rooms we have created delicious seasonal menus using the very best of local produce.

Newby Hall, Sutton Bank and Harewood House are renowned as three of Yorkshire’s best family days out, with a range of things to see and do which appeal to adults and children alike.


The Garden Restaurant

Newby Hall

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren and home to the Compton family, Newby Hall boasts 25 acres of award winning gardens. The Garden Restaurant is run by The Yorkshire Party Company who have designed a menu which focuses on homemade recipes using local and seasonal produce. Whether it is a warming bowl of soup, a fresh and delicious salad or a cup of tea and a piece of cake that will tempt your tastebuds, there is something for everyone in the restaurant, including a children’s menu for little ones.
