About The Bow Room Restaurant
From a relaxed catch up with friends to an exceptional meal over a bottle of English sparkling wine; good food plays a central role in our work here at The Bow Room Restaurant at Grays Court. With seasonal ingredients sourced from the highest quality suppliers, our innovative team of chefs guarantee a dining experience like no other. Exceptional dishes come together with the peaceful beauty of our historic building for an evening that will stay with you forever.
I arranged a surprise afternoon tea for my Auntie here, the food, staff and building are just fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble and the food was delicious. Excellent communication with Rhiannon. Will definitely be returning!
Such a beautiful place! We tried the gentleman’s tea which was so nice and different. The food couldn’t have tasted fresher and nicer and the staff were so friendly and helpful without being around all the time
I would definitely dine with you again and would highly recommend you and already have done so.
Can highly recommend the wine pairings. Steak tartare was just the best. Surprised Foie Gras was on the menu. I asked if we could have something else instead; not a problem, the crab replacement was lovely.
An elegant classical setting in a quintessential English hotel with plenty of character. The food was lovely - though I wish I'd had the 5 course rather than 9 course taster. Perhaps 7 instead of 9 would be better? The wine pairing was very good and the service excellent.
Exceptional food and staff! Loved our dining experience.
We had a lovely afternoon tea. Unfortunately we were alone in the dining room, which was rather strange. You could do with an area in the bar/lounge with a table for the afternoon tea when only one table was being used.
One of the best meals I have had in my life. Perfect service, it all felt so special. The fact it is all local produce is amazing. Thank you for a fabulous evening.
The whole experience was excellent, service, food quality, surroundings etc. The food definitely held its own with other restaurants in this category anywhere in the uk. The only improvement I would make would be the deserts, they were good but not quite as good as everything else and probably just a bit too big after 9 courses. Overall very good and I will be returning very soon.
We had a great evening and 9 course meal experience
We enjoyed the food so much that we had to come back again the very next night. The menu was very focused, the execution was impeccable and the service was excellent! They deserve a Michelin star.
We were treated like royalty ! The service and attention to detail was impecable and my husband and I were made to feel special. You have a fantastic team and we will be recommending you most highly to all our friends and relatives!
We booked as we had not visited before. Every thing was perfect, from the reception pardon, down to the waiting staff. Attentive without being over bearing. Thank you all for a wonderful afternoon.
Visited The Bow Room for a 30th Birthday afternoon tea. Was a very pleasurable and memorable experience. The food was lovely with the team catering well for our dietary requirements (who knew artichoke could taste so amazing in a sandwich!). Felt very relaxed with the team just letting us gradually make our way through the food over a couple of hours. Sitting in the large alcove was lovely and cosy, the perfect way to hide away from the the thunder and rain outside. Will recommend to friends!
We really enjoyed the whole evening and the food was delicious, but not enough vegetables. However this did not spoil our evening. We will be back.
Excellent food and great service...thanks for the experience.
The food at the Bow Restaurant is first class and the whole night was a joy. Thank You.
We had an afternoon tea booking following our wedding at the Bootham Suite. Everything about our visit was wonderful! We were able to sit outside in the gardens as the weather was nice which added to the experience. The service was the perfect balance of attentive yet laid back, the food was delicious and the hotel and grounds were beautiful. Thank you!
Had a lovely relaxing afternoon in the beautiful gardens and the staff were very attentive. Thank you!
We had a lovely afternoon in the garden enjoying our tea. The food and service were impeccable.
We had been treated to Afternoon tea and it's up there with the best. The patisserie were beautiful and tasted heavenly. The service was excellent and the staff were all very welcoming and very efficient. As the sun shone we sat in the walled garden which is just lovely. A perfect afternoon. Thank you
We really enjoyed our afternoon tea for our wedding anniversary. The food and service was excellent. Our waiter was knowledgable and very attentive to our needs. We would love to return!
Outstanding venue, food/wine and service. Chris was excellent as was the Italian waiter with the moustache and English accent.
One of those rare occasions when everything aligns perfectly. Superb afternoon tea, fantastic gardens, perfect weather, attentive but discrete staff. Can not fault it and we can be a bit picky!
Just perfect from start to finish. I’m unable to have cream or cheese and they catered so well for me. Thank you so much, we’ll be back.
