Five Stars For Grassington House

CONGRATULATIONS to John Rudden, former chef/director at the White Hart, Lydgate, for being awarded five AA stars for Grassington House, the restaurant with rooms he runs with his wife Sue in the Yorkshire Dales. This cosy bolthole in the heart of the village maintains its 2 Rosettes for food.

John And SueJohn And SueThe AA report reads: “It was an absolute pleasure to return to The Grassington House Hotel where the standards, quality and comfort continue to impress. All areas are beautifully presented and there is a well-cared for feel throughout. There are many strengths and the individually styled bedrooms meet expectations very well.”

The  couple have been at the Grade 2 listed Grassington House for five years. Previously at the White Hart, outside Oldham, John built up a great reputation for his food and won the Craft Guild of Chefs’ Pub and Restaurant Chef of the Year award. Grassington, set in lovely countryside, is an hour an a half away from Manchester by car.
