Dating back to the 15th century, the Pipe & Glass Inn stands on the site of the original gatehouse to Dalton Park, still the residence of Lord Hotham. It was here that some of the visitors to the 'great house' were offered hospitality and lodgings during their stay. The old gatehouse was eventually replaced by the present building, part of which is 17th century.
James and Kate took over The Pipe & Glass Inn in March 2006, and undertook a full refurbishment. The bar has kept a country pub feel, while the restaurant was transformed into a warm, welcoming, more contemporary area, with bespoke wooden tables made to James and Kate’s specifications, and a conservatory area looking out over the garden and housing a spectacular long table seating up to 28 for those of you with lots of friends! There is also plenty of room for dining outside.
In 2010 two luxury boutique suites were opened ‘Sage and ‘Thyme’, both with king size beds, their own patios and stunning views into Dalton Park.
Chef-proprietor James is committed to sourcing as much local and seasonal produce as possible – but first and foremost, its quality that counts. The Pipe & Glass Inn was awarded East Yorkshires first and only Michelin star in 2010, James is the current ‘Yorkshire Life’ chef of the year and Delicouslyorkshire champion. The menus, which include vegetarian options, change regularly and if there’s something you’d like that’s not on there, please ask, and James and his chefs will do their best to make it for you. We can also cater for special dietary needs with prior notice. Children are welcome with their own menu provided.
Our wine list offers something for everyone’s taste. We work with wine producers we feel deliver the quality and style of wines that compliment the excellence of the Pipe and Glass menu. We also offer a wide selection of regularly changing hand-pulled ales including ‘Old Rosie’ hand-pulled cider and local guest beers from the Wold Top, Old Mill Brewery and York Brewery. Our resident beer is Black Sheep.
The aim of all at The Pipe & Glass Inn is to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable. Please call us for further information, or to make a booking, on 01430 810 246.
