Grassington House Hotel and the award winning restaurant and bar - 5 The Square are located in the heart of Grassington, a quaint village in upper Wharfedale, North Yorkshire, where the charming cobbled square is home to an array of lovely shops and cafés. Grassington is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the area is renowned for its rolling hills, river valleys and extensive cave systems, making it popular among walkers and outdoor enthusiasts.
But lovers of good food and wine are now equally well served; 5 The Square is an ideal restaurant for destination dining and special occasions, with national award winning Chef John Rudden’s. Proprietor’s John and Sue Rudden boast seasonal menus featuring mouthwatering local produce -including their own hand-reared rare-breed pork. The welcoming bar offers a relaxing spot to enjoy a drink or a lighter lunch – with views over the town square year round and log-burning fires to warm your toes by in the winter. Alongside the wine list which combines an eclectic mix from around the globe with traditional European and New World wines, there’s a fine selection of beers including local traditional cask ales and locally sourced ciders.
The Georgian Grassington House is one of the town’s most notable historic buildings and was inhabited by distinguished local families before being converted into a hotel in the early 1900s. The elegant architecture, combined with the Hotel’s recent, extensive renovation, now provides 7 individually designed luxury rooms and 2 suites, featuring Italian lighting and fabrics and designer furnishings. From the contemporary chic of the Red Room to the cosy Georgian Cottage Room – there’s a style to suit every taste.
Having gained 2 AA Rosettes for food, John and Sue Rudden are happy to share their culinary secrets at Master Classes - held in the dining room with the demonstration table replacing the grand piano! The themed demonstrations are followed by a delicious 3-course lunch.
