Gilroy's Dining Room

Traditional Venue, Contemporary Menu

A contemporary restaurant, Gilroy’s Dining Room is not just for special occasions. 

Named after northeast artist John Gilroy, best known for his posters advertising Guinness, his murals decorate our Dickens Bar where you can indulge in an aperitif before enjoying an exceptional culinary experience in the dining room.

Head chef Lee Stainthorpe is proud to change the 2 AA Rosette-awarded Gilroy's Dining Room menu with the seasons, creating innovative dishes with quality locally-sourced ingredients.

“…food served was superb, stunningly presented, very flavoursome. Very attentive staff. Superb!” – K McGregor-Towers

Your starter and main course follow a complimentary amuse bouche and some of our delicious home made warm breads served with flavoured butters. You’ll be presented with a pre-dessert to whet your appetite before you tuck into one of our pastry chef’s amazing puddings – there’s always something unusual and delicious to choose. And if that’s not enough, you can order a wonderful Anglo-French cheese selection to enjoy with another glass of wine before retiring to The Dicken’s Bar or to one of our individually designed guest rooms.

 “Amazing presentation. Service and quality was second to none.” – W Elsender

With a contemporary ambience – a vibrant colour palette and artwork juxtaposed against the familiar quality hallmarks of oak panelling and wood block floor – quality touches create a relaxed, comfortable room for diners to enjoy the creativity and quality of the food. 

“The chocolate cherry pressing was to die for!” – N Ricketts

And it’s not only the quality of the food you’ll enjoy. Our service team are second to none, with in-depth knowledge of the menu and an unobtrusive way of making you feel right at home.

All you have to do is decide whether you want two courses or three and let us take care of the rest.
