There are few places that can compete with the British country pub for cosiness and decadence. With a roaring fire, a range of drinks and some comfy sofas to while away an evening, the rural inn has long been a favourite in the UK, and with an increasing number offering superb food to boot, it isn’t surprising to see this traditional institution go from strength to strength. One such inn is The Cleveland Tontine in the North Yorkshire village of, well Cleveland Tontine, just outside Northallerton, where you can get a drink, a superb British feed and a place to bed down in the North York Moors.
Food and service excellent staff are very friendly and helpful hotel is spotless we had the afternoon tea which I thought was good value for money
Had a lovely evening at The Tontine. Most of us had steaks which were cooked to perfection. Staff were very attentive. Will definitely go again.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea - would recommend anyone to go and have one! There were, however a couple of glitches in the arrangements, which the staff corrected magnificently - so, no complaints there!
On taking a trip to the North York Moors, you’d be remiss to pass up an opportunity to nip into The Cleveland Tontine. They offer lodging, of course, and an enviable position on the edge of the national park (not far from Northallerton) and a warm welcome, but what we like is food, so that’s what we’ll focus on. When you arrive in the eponymous village of Cleveland Tontine, you’ll be treated to a selection of favourites from Yorkshire and beyond, washed down with British ales and international wines: so make a move to their address, just off the A172, for a superb feed.
The menu is the star of the show at The Cleveland Tontine, so let us explain the offerings available on the outskirts of Northallerton. Their food is seasonal, but classic British dishes are always prominent, such as ham knuckle and wood pigeon, as well as steaks with poivre or bearnaise sauce. Take a trip to Cleveland Tontine for an introduction into the best that Yorkshire has to offer on a plate: just remember to book your table ahead of time, as they can get busy on occasion, even in such a rural location.
