Deerhouse Lunches and Dinners
Alfresco Barbecues in the Parkland
For those who are looking for something really out of this world, join us for an alfresco lunch or dinner at our charming, period Deerhouse in the parkland. Relax with a refreshing aperitif and watch Michelin-trained chef and Cookery School Director Stephen Bulmer prepare a delicious feast of barbecued meats, fish, salads and desserts, served buffet-style. Once you have made your selections, sit back and enjoy a relaxed, informal meal with views extending over the hotel and parkland to the distant Vale of York.

This is a rustic experience, with uneven ground surrounding the Deerhouse. Please take care on arrival and departure. Warm clothing and footwear highly recommended in the evenings, which become cool after sunset.
