Steeped in history, Middletons York is a four-star hotel just minutes from the city centre. The hotel is spread across an array of 17th-century buildings, including an old hospital, two Joseph Terry Almshouses, an organ factory, a sawmill and a row of Georgian townhouses. Aside from the range of cosy, comfy, executive, cottage and dog-friendly rooms, Middletons York is well equipped for all types of dining.
Guests can start their day with plenty of choices, as the breakfast menu covers all the bases. Larger options include a full Northern breakfast, with eggs, sausage wheel, bacon, Lancashire black pudding, grilled tomato, mushrooms and baked beans, while healthier options like granola and smoothies are also available.
After a morning of exploring the city, guests can pop back in for soup, hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, fish and chips and other lunch options. In the evening, the menu expands to four courses. The nibbles list features entries like arancini and crispy cauliflower bites, while starters include the likes of baked camembert, tempura prawns and chicken liver parfait. For the main event, there is plenty of choice: cider infused pork fillet, fish and chips, beer-braised ox cheek, pan-seared cauliflower steak, risotto or confit cod loin. Alternatively, diners can peruse the grill menu and opt for meatier dishes like steak, burgers or chicken breast.
To finish, guests can end their meal with a decadent dessert such as sticky toffee pudding, baked vanilla and pistachio cake or a lemon and grapefruit tartlet. However, it would be a shame to miss the range of Yorkshire cheeses from Cryer & Stott, so we recommend ordering this too. Classic and house cocktails, as well as an impressive range of wines, beers and spirits are also on offer.
Sunday lunch is a firm favourite here, with options like roast sirloin or spinach and butternut squash risotto. Bollinger packages are available for those looking to splash out on an indulgent treat.
