About Norse

THE FOOD

Norse serves modern food using Yorkshire produce.

We offer a familiar a la carte menu (Starters/Mains/Desserts) or a tasting menu (59.00 per guest) as an option for guests who would prefer not to choose

We also offer an early evening menu from 5pm - 6.30pm (Tue - Fri) and serve a similar menu at lunch on Saturday (12pm-2pm).

2 Courses - £21
3 courses - £25

THE DRINKS

We champion aperitifs to start your meal - which we feel have fallen a little out of fashion. We’ve assembled a range primarily from France (who are probably the masters) but with some nice additions from elsewhere too.

We love wine and have a varied list many of which are available by the glass thanks to the coravin preservation system that allows us to access wine without exposing it to oxygen. We enjoy interesting wines that have a story behind them. They may use less well known varietals, be from emerging wine regions, use modern or ancient techniques in the production process or just have something a little bit different in the way they are created.

With the return of the tasting menu it is only natural that we also bring back our popular drinks pairing, a selection of drinks chosen to work with the food we serve and to allow you to try some things you might not ordinarily select.

THE SPACE

The restaurant space uses natural tones to create a calm and cosy environment that we think you will really enjoy. We’ve combined pale oak for our tables with beech that makes up our bar and we’ve retained the moss wall centrepiece that stood in the space before we took it on. Photos by local landscape photographer Tristan Campbell complement the natural feel and are mounted on specially designed acoustic damping frames, made from recycled plastic bottles, to improve the auditory experience.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS

We are pleased to be able to able to cater for gluten free, pescatarian and vegetarian diets on our a la carte menu without prior arrangements. We will endeavour to accommodate vegan diets and other requirements by prior arrangement.

Our tasting menu is available by prior arrangement. This means we can cater for gluten free, pescatarian and vegetarian diets, but please do note these during the booking process - we will not be able to alter the menu on the night. We may be able to cater for other requirements by prior arrangement but we regret that we cannot offer a vegan tasting menu.

DRESS CODE

The atmosphere at Norse is relaxed, please wear something in which you feel comfortable with the only caveat being it is not something that may offend other guests.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new space.

Regards

Paul, Simon, Gareth and the Norse team.

Fantastic meal, bit too long of a wait for the wine after initially sitting down but it didn't spoil the night

everything was very slow and disorganised. Shame really as we were looking forward to it very much. We have put it down to your new location and possibly you overstretched yourselves.

Lovely food, pleasant staff. Each plate looked fab and was a delicious surprise. Nice new premises and great to be able to enjoy the Norse experience at lunch times as well.

We had a fantastic evening. The new venue is lovely. Comfortable and stylish, the welcome was warm and the service was great. We enjoyed the a la carte menu and had very pretty, very tasty interesting plates of food. It is great that we can now eat lunch at Norse too and I am looking forward to doing that as soon as I can. The only thing I missed was the puffed rice/ seeds to dip the bread in!! Thank you and well done

Quite wooden service, but possibly due to opening day nerves? Incredible food and amazing decor. Thoroughly enjoyed and have already recommended to about 20 people. Awesome.

Fantastic new venue that complements the excellent and unusual cuisine. Providing an intimate, yet friendly environment everything from the tactile mossy wall to the comfortable seating is designed to enhance the array of beautifully presented dishes. Not only does the food arrive looking good - on warm stones, in danish designer tableware and mossy platters - it tastes divine. Spoilt for choice there are dishes to suit every taste with vegetarian and gluten free options abounding. I particularly enjoyed the fish on offer especially the charred mackerel and the Whitby crab in an onion broth which looked, and tasted, amazing covered with delicate slices of grape. Offering a mixture of smaller and larger plates meant that we were able to sample a wider array of delicacies, each creatively presented. However if you are overwhelmed by the choice and variety, then go for the yeast glazed short rib of beef if it is on the menu and you won't be disappointed. Do leave room for a desert, they arrive as a piece of artwork with hidden explosions of taste. Great venue, inventive menu and an enjoyable all round experience from the friendly greeting as you walk in the door until you leave feeling like old friends.

It was my friend's first experience of eating at Norse, I was excited to share the evening with her and you didn't let me down, it was everything and more that I have come to expect. The food, service and ambience were exceptional, you have created a space that still has the feel of the "essence" of Norse - congratulations and here is to more accolades - you deserve them xxx

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Norse, the food was absolutely amazing with lots of different tastes and the meat was cooked to perfection. The staff were really friendly and attentive but not annoyingly attentive! We will definitely be coming back soon.
