Sprawling outwards from a largely Victorian house, 2015 saw the opening of a glossy spa and health club at Ramside. Culinary options run from straightforward carvery dishes to the menu in the brasserie-style Rib Room, a temple to slabs of locally-reared 28-day aged beef. Just choose your cut (a peckish pair might go halves on a 30oz tomahawk rib-eye) which then arrives with roasted mushrooms, braised onions and a choice of classic sauces. Non-carnivores could go for grilled sea bass with braised fennel and herb velouté. Preceding this there might be confit belly pork with black pudding and toffee apple, and puddings such as retro knickerbocker glory or baked Alaska.
