Showing surprisingly good taste for in both its decor and on its plate, Thorpe Park Hotel and Spa, has become a magnet for corporate diners in the fast-developing east Leeds business park. Take lunch in the Courtyard, a dramatic, glass topped Parisian-style atrium that rises through two stories, with a mix of Mediterranean and Yorkshire dishes, typically spinach and ricotta crespelle with formaggio sauce or a slow-braised Nidderdale lamb with mash and onion gravy. For dinner, there's a grown-up dining room of leather and crisp linen and a towering floodlit wine rack . The menu again pits Italian against Yorkshire: mozzarella, artichoke and red pepper salad with basil pesto and Yorkshire calf’s liver and Wensleydale bacon. Pannacotta and tiramisu compete with treacle tart and Swaledale cheeses. It's pricey but principled, with intelligent local sourcing at its heart.
