About The Brierley at Acklam Hall
The Brierley offers a unique dining experience within the beautiful Acklam Hall, Middlesbrough's only Grade I listed building.
The Brierley is named after York architect Walter Brierley, one of the finest architects of the early twentieth century who was appointed by the Hustler family in 1910 to undertake alterations to Acklam Hall.
Home to The Salon and The Dining Room, two beautiful and unique rooms providing the perfect setting to indulge and enjoy.
It was my hubby birthday and the staff made a fuss it was very much appreciated
Staff friendly as ever, pleasant relaxing morning
I was going to email today to say how fantastic I thought our waitress was. She was polite, friendly and couldn’t do enough for us and all of the other tables booked for an afternoon tea. I’m really sorry I didn’t get her name but she was a young lady with dark hair, she was the only girl serving the afternoon tea in that room. Thank you.
Waitress service 1st class
The starters and the mains were all excellent. Two of our party had venison which was lovely but a little tiny on the portion of venison. The confit was nice but needed a bit more jus on the plate to stop it being a bit dry. But overall the flavour was excellent. The side dishes of roast veg and creamed leaks were scummy.
We love everything about Acklam Hall! Lovely friendly staff, amazing surroundings, great food and service. Amazing gin and tonics! We are from the south of England visiting family and bring friends and family to Acklam hall to show off its class and incredible style! Just wish I could move here, maybe one day! Then I’d line a job at Acklam hall in the events and management 😜
Lovely place for enjoying a Cosy meal and gorgeous afternoon tea. Exceptional service highly recommended.
The food was delicious and the staff could not have been more helpful!
Lovely breakfast. Excellent service. Would recommend.
I held my daughter’s baby shower in the room upstairs. It was the happiest of days made all the more special by the lovely surroundings, brilliant staff and lovely food. Thank you all so much for a wonderful day - many guests commented that it was the best baby shower they’d ever been too!
Lovely place! Lovely atmosphere, brilliant service, would love it to be a little bit less expensive. Had a wonderful time - thank you!
Was disappointed as I had made a reservation and received a email confirming it only to find when we arrived you had no booking for us so we had to stand about for 10 minutes waiting for somebody to find us a spare chair when quite clearly there were tables available. It made us all feel really uncomfortable as people were looking at us🤔
We had a lovely evening and enjoyed everything. Thanks very much and we look forward to coming again
Nice lunchtime meal. Great staff and great venue
Beautiful room with wonderful food and service was second to none! Another totally enjoyable evening for our valentines day meal and can’t wait to go to the Brierley again.
As always a friendly, professional experience in a superb environment. Helen and the corporate events team are a class act....

Another gorgeous experience at Acklam Hall. It’s my favourite venue in Middlesbrough by far
I would like to say how pleased I was to try your evening menu as I’ve only ever had Sunday lunch with you which is lovely. Our evening meal on valentines night surpassed my expectations and certainly did not disappoint the flavours in your cooking I could taste all the ingredients used and blended beautifully any restaurant is only as good as it’s chef and you have a fabulous chef can’t wait to come again thank you for your excellent service and lovely staff I would recommend Acklam Hall to anyone who has not tried your excellent menu keep up your hard work .
Staff were great. Really unimpressed with how packed the bar restaurant was and how you had to squeeze past people when trying to go to the bathroom. Also. Some of the scones and sandwiches weren’t as fresh as they should have been. Considering I paid almost £100 for three afternoon teas and drinks, the least I expected was some feedback when I comented on their freshness. Scones aren’t supposed to crumble if they had been made fresh that day? The service was great and couldn’t fault the staff in that respect.
This was my third visit for afternoon tea. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.
Delicious afternoon tea. Pleasant knowledgeable waitress. Good cheese scone, fresh pannecotta, delish choc mousse. The Brierly has an atmosphere all of its own. One issue I had with the decor. The grey nets st the window made the room ratherdark and gloomy on a not very bright Winters day.
