One of the Finest Restaurants in Ripon

Great food

Our locally sourced, high quality food is prepared with skill and enthusiasm by Calvin Porter – head chef, Josh Scaife – sous chef and Bobby Scott – commis chef. Together, their youth and enthusiasm for food makes The Old Deanery one of the best places to eat in Ripon.

We are proud members of Times+. the Darlington and Stockton Times Eat Out Guide and The Gourmet Society so you can enjoy extremely good value as a member.

Fresh, Local Produce

We try and source local ingredients wherever we possibly can, bread from Lancasters of Harrogate, beef and lamb (when in season) from R and J at Kirkby Malzeard, fish from Hodgsons of Hartlepool, our milk, fresh juices, cream and yoghurts from Bellerbys of Harrogate, and all our cheese, the best of British, is from Cryer and Scott.
