Situated just three miles from Harrogate, this ‘model estate village’ was rebuilt in the 1830s by the hereditary owners of Ripley Castle (the Ingilby family), whose duties now include overseeing
The Boar’s Head and its personally chosen wine list. Produce from the estate features heavily on the menu in the bistro/bar and the more contemporary brasserie, with British ideas ruling the roost
– don’t miss the renowned wild boar and black pudding terrine, the ‘manly man’ ham salad or the grilled Nidderdale lamb chops with sautéed lamb’s kidneys and a mini shepherd’s pie. The kitchen also
cast its net beyond these shores for the likes of chicken Kiev, grilled bream fillet on smoked mussel risotto or honey-glazed pork shank with chorizo and bean cassoulet. Visitors staying over can
also gain complimentary access to Ripley Castle and its historic gardens.
