Meaning ‘garden’ in Latin, much of the produce on the menu at Horto is grown in the restaurant’s own abundant kitchen garden. Located within the spa at Rudding Park, by day this charming venue is an informal spa café but things are very different in the evening. The feel is contemporary, with modern art on the walls and the latest tunes playing. Staff are smartly dressed, tables are bare, and the dishes on offer change and evolve depending on the seasons and availability of produce grown on site, including herbs, salads, vegetables, edible flowers and fruits. Techniques are up to the minute and flavour combinations simple and clean but with fantastic depth. Witness a starter of cauliflower tart with Berkswell cheese and walnut, or perhaps garden beetroot with almond and mustard. Main course might bring east coast lobster with Isle of Wight tomato and summer squash, or salt-aged Yorkshire lamb, ewes' curd and gem lettuce. To finish, Bruce Farm strawberries, honey, elderflower and yoghurt makes for a refreshing finale.

About the area

Discover North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire, with its two National Parks and two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is England’s largest county and one of the most rural. This is prime walking country, from the heather-clad heights of the North York Moors to the limestone country that is so typical of the Yorkshire Dales – a place of contrasts and discoveries, of history and legend.

The coastline offers its own treasures, from the fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood Bay to Scarborough, one time Regency spa and Victorian bathing resort. In the 1890s, the quaint but bustling town of Whitby provided inspiration for Bram Stoker, who set much of his novel, Dracula, in the town. Wizarding enthusiasts head to the village of Goathland, which is the setting for the Hogwarts Express stop at Hogsmeade station in the Harry Potter films.

York is a city of immense historical significance. It was capital of the British province under the Romans in AD 71, a Viking settlement in the 10th century, and in the Middle Ages its prosperity depended on the wool trade. Its city walls date from the 14th century and are among the finest in Europe. However, the gothic Minster, built between 1220 and 1470, is York’s crowning glory.
