An institution in Herriot Country, Cleveland Tontine has much to offer visitors to North Yorkshire. Blessed with a reputation for fine food, comfortable and stylish accommodation, and easily accessible on the A19 north of Northallerton.
Dog friendly in the bar and lounge, Cleveland Tontine is a relaxing restaurant with rooms that James Herriot would have seen on his travels in his beloved North Yorkshire and possibly even dined with Helen.
Originally a coaching inn on the London to Sunderland mail coach run, built in 1804, it became a private house after the demise of the coach network and the introduction of rail and then in 1976 the McCoy brothers established Cleveland Tontine as a highly acclaimed ‘must-visit’ restaurant with rooms.
Cleveland Tontine is now owned by Provenance Inns & Hotels which also owns West Park Hotel in Harrogate, The Carpenters Arms in Felixkirk and the Black Bull in Moulton. The group has invested well, and it offers high levels of comfort and hospitality that visitors to Herriot Country from all over the world can appreciate. Both outdoor comfort and indoor spaces have received quite a facelift.
A past finalist in the Flavours of Herriot Country Awards, great food is still at the heart of the Cleveland Tontine and the menus include many local and regional ingredients, an example of which is the Yorkshire beef, hung and aged on site. The Bistro has a huge open fire and Grade 1 listed ceiling and, is a relaxing place to enjoy the food and wine.
A garden entrance is available into the main conservatory. For guests with accessibility needs and assistance to the main restaurant and hotel via a pair of staircases, can be arranged by advising the restaurant staff when making reservations.
