Restaurant - English, next open Thu 25 Jan 2018 - Sun 31 Dec 2028, free entry




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.

Head Chef Sam Wilson’s relationship with food and hospitality started very early growing up in his family’s restaurant, The Java. Raised in a vegetarian household his professional career started at age 16 in 2001 cooking vegetarian food in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

In 2008 Sam moved to London to work at Gordon Ramsay’s Maze and since then has worked in a string of the UK’s most prestigious Michelin-starred restaurants including working for Phil Howard and Tom Aikens.

After joining Grays Court in August 2017 Sam has been working closely with local suppliers to source the best of local seasonal ingredients to produce some of Yorkshire’s finest cuisine.

With Yorkshire's finest produce in our kitchen we believe the menus will write themselves.
