The Grand Hotel & Spa York’s interior is suitably fitting for an establishment whose history spans over a century. Set within the iconic former headquarters of the North Eastern Railway Company, the Edwardian building opened in 1906. Today, heritage seamlessly blends with modern touches to create opulent surrounds that suit all manner of occasions. Keep an eye out for the wonderful details, such as wrought-iron balustrades, garland ceiling plasterwork and carved stone flourishes, which are subtle reminders of the building’s history.

At the hotel’s Rise restaurant, terrace and bar, the interior takes cues from York’s local heritage to create a soft industrial dining room, complete with an open kitchen, cocktail bar and heated garden terrace; a prime spot for al fresco dining come rain or shine. Award-winning chef Craig Atchinson puts his foraging and gardening skills to good use in the carefully created Yorkshire tapas dishes, though combining modern techniques with classical flavour pairings is what he does best. Small plates are inspired by the local yield, so expect to see local grouse, rabbit, fish and wild edible produce on the menu. The small plates allow diners to enjoy a sociable dining experience, and range from scallops, cauliflower, apple and hazelnut, and grilled tiger prawns with smoked paprika mayo, to charred octopus, fennel, capers and aioli. Whether you’re a first-timer, returning regular, or hotel resident, Craig makes sure everyone receives the same care and attention.

The range of afternoon teas includes a children’s option as well as Hendricks Gin afternoon tea, and Prosecco and Champagne teas – they’re nothing short of splendid.

The staff here aren’t just purveyors of fine food – drinks are given just as much attention as the food. Work your way through the drinks list of local ale, beer, signature cocktails and a handpicked wine list, or treat yourself to the superb sweet plates and cocktail pairing menu.

The spa can be found in the atmospheric vaults and is a wonderful spot for an afternoon of pampering. Consider concluding a visit with an overnight stay in one of the elegant 107 bedrooms – they are sure to leave a lasting impression.
