At the heart of The Coach House is an all-day Restaurant serving up breakfast, lunch, dinner and roasts on a Sunday.

In the evening, sip one of the seasonal cocktails or craft ales at the bar, with cool sounds and a laid back atmosphere. Followed by a visit to the relaxed restaurant, with original features dating back to the 18th-century Georgian carriage house.

For those looking for an intimate party, the Private Dining Room can host up to 24 guests, and is located just off from the main Restaurant.

After dinner, take a visit to the snug, cosy up by the fire in the restored chesterfield armchairs and order your favourite night-cap.

The food was not very warm. The sauces were very vinegary. The whole place seems a triumph of image over substance. Brilliant PR shame about the food!

We were a party of 4 staying 2 nights for a 70th Birthday celebration and we dined in The Coach House on both nights. Everything felt very Covid safe, service was attentive and friendly and we all enjoyed our food choices on both nights. The courtyard area was also a pleasant area for pre dinner drinks. Would happily return whatever the occasion.

Couldn’t fault service & food, but the restaurant was cold!!! I asked for doors to be closed but they wouldn’t, I presume they think covid won’t spread if you’re cold!

The food was beautiful, and there was a really good choice of vegan options as well as meat/vegetarian. The staff were all very friendly, and we felt safe there due to tables being well spread out and masks being worn by all staff/patrons while walking to tables.

Had three course lunch on Teesside Restaurant week for £15.00. The choice was good considering deal and we were offered free sparkling or still water when we first sat down which is nice as you usually pay fortune for this.
The courses run smoothly maybe bit quick between main and desert but we could of asked for this to ne extended.
The place itself is lovely and we would highly recommend this place.

Just a wonderful place to be. Perfect in every way. We sat outside for Sunday lunch and loved every minute of it. Staff could not have been more helpful and food was delicious.
If you can, be sure to have a wander around the walled garden when you visit. It really does cap the day off perfectly.

Never been here before. They are taking COVID 19 seriously. Temperature checked on site before getting close to the restaurant. All the staff took the precautions seriously.

Lovely surroundings and delicious food. My vegetarian options were great only limited by the brunch menu was no longer available but had things on I would have liked to have chosen. Partner’s steak was cooked to perfection. Would happily return.

Another excellent lunch. Service is very good and the menu is varied. Have now been a few times so perhaps it needs refreshing. Food quality excellent and overall I feel it is value for money. Lovely Courtyard awning with the benefit of heaters means that you can continue to dine outside if you wish.

Love the environment. Menu was limited and portions are small. I ordered the Leek dish and literally got 2 whole sticks of leek and not much else which wasn't quite what i expected but the quality of what you get is great and you cant beat the environment. I would recommend but check out that there is something on the menu that you really like first.

Starter heritage tomatoes, mozzarella and ciabatta was disappointing for the price. Very little mozzarella, wilted basil, soft bread. I felt it must have been prepared some timE before.
Main Parmesan gnocchi and summer vegetables was bland and maybe forgot the Parmesan. The vegetables were lovely though.
Dessert vanilla pannacotta and summer fruit was nice, though more of a custard than pannacotta.
I liked the free of charge sparkling water.
