Review on Crathorne Hall, Leven Restaurant
One of Yorkshire's grandest country houses and a bastion of stately Edwardian opulence, Crathorne Hall stands proudly in 15 acres of immaculate grounds overlooking the Leven Valley and the Cleveland Hills. Old-world formality is the order of the day in the Leven Restaurant, with its wood panelling, amazing prints and logs blazing in the ornate carved stone fireplace.
The kitchen delivers modern Anglo-French cooking based on carefully sourced produce (fish is from Hartlepool, game is from the moors and meat is reared locally). Begin with Crathorne sweet-cured venison, marinated figs, parsnip and lentil vinaigrette before poached skate with roast salsify, homemade black pudding and capers or corn-fed duck with pistachio mousse, foie gras and butternut squash. Desserts might include green tea brûlée with cherries and praline ice cream, and the wine list is an impressive collection of fine bottles courtesy of Bibendum.
For something more casual, try the food in the Nancy Tennant Lounge or the Drawing Room, both of which are open for lunch and dinner (as well as afternoon tea).
