“We are delighted to announce that the Bolton Castle Tea Room has been taken on by Guy Fairhurst, whose parents ran the successful and locally reknowned restaurant here in the 1980’s.
Since his childhood, Guy has been passionate about food. He qualified as a Chef at York College in 2005 and worked in London at the fashionable Eight Over Eight Thai restaurant in Fulham, before returning to his native county of Yorkshire to further his career among his family and friends and the surroundings he loves.
The licensed Tea Room serves a delicious range of cakes, scones and other treats, a selection of teas, coffees, soft drinks, wines and local beers as well as hot lunches between midday and 3 pm. The north of England is famous for the quality of its stockmen and animal husbandry and we are lucky to be surrounded by farmers who take great pride in the meat and crops they produce and hope that this reflects in our food.
Guy and his team are determined to combine the best local and homemade produce with a friendly welcome and excellent service in the castle’s impressive Guest Hall, where visitors have enjoyed hospitality for over six hundred years.
As well as weddings, we are able to cater for birthdays and other parties by arrangement and can supply menus on request.
Guy caters for all weddings at the castle and is also available for outside events and has just launched a new bistro at The Middleham Key Centre. If you have enjoyed the food at Bolton and want to try his fine dining experience, please give it a try – you are welcome to book at the castle.”
We ask that large groups book in advance.
