2 for 1 at The Storm Restaurant at The Best Western Dower House and Spa

Sat on Bond End in the picturesque North Yorkshire market town of Knaresborough, the Dower House and Spa offers a warm welcome to locals and visitors to the area.

The hotel is set within a 15th century property and is home to a host of fantastic services, including a relaxing spa and swimming pool, a fabulous work out centre, and an exquisite bar and restaurant.

Offering all that walk through the door a wonderful setting in which to enjoy some sumptuous fare, the Storm Restaurant at the Dower House and Spa is a delightful spot for a pleasant meal with loved ones. This is further enhanced for tastecard members, who are able to enjoy all of the dishes served on the a la carte menu at a superb discount when they call in advance with their card. The a la carte menu features plenty to savour, from a delectable assortment of starters that include the likes of a scrumptious crispy duck salad and a glorious collection of scallops, through to the mouth-watering main course options.

A succulent red wine adorned slow braised ox cheek, a divine smoked haddock, and a delicious chargrilled chicken breast make for just three of the gratifying entrees. These are joined by a selection of succulent steaks that are ideal for the particularly carnivorous diner and an enticing vegetarian alternative in the tartiflette of potatoes, garlic, cream, and Rembluchon cheese, on a menu that is fit to suit any palate or appetite.

Visitors are encouraged to conclude the dining experience with one of the divine desserts on show, such as the irresistible double chocolate brownie or the heart-warming sticky apple and ginger pudding, before dipping into the savings and enjoying a tipple or two at the bar – finishing off a feast at the Storm Restaurant at the Dower House and Spa in style.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is unavailable throughout December. You must book in advance to be entitled to the discount.

    We took some friends on Sunday 15th March having had a wonderful meal last year, the barman who was also the waiter and receptionist offered a limited menu which had mackerel as a main course. My wife and I ordered the mackerel which turned out to be smoked mackerel. When this was pointed out to our busy waiter(etc.) he said "oh yes ill tell the chef"
    Our friends had the chicken breast which was well cooked but a very small portion.
    The restaurant was very quiet considering it was mothering Sunday.
    Nothing further was said about the meal when we left no one asked if everything was ok and although we paid I don't feel it was worth the money even with the 50% discount. "

    Went with friends after having the spa treatment at imagine (next to the Dower House). The food was gorgeous, we had a 3 course meal and got 50% off with the taste card. Highly recommend a visit! I'll be going again soon. "

    Storm restaurant at the Dower House Hotel, Knaresborough, was surprisingly empty over Sunday lunch time this weekend.

    The quietness may have been to our benefit, as we were squeezing in a quick family lunch together (Sunday roasts were great, reasonably priced and service was attentive and friendly) but I wonder if locals aren’t missing out. "
