Carefully selected classic British dishes feature on the Grilled menu, with many creations showcasing the supreme local produce found dotted across Yorkshire. Sample the likes of garlic and rosemary-crusted lamb rump and black pepper-crusted duck with honey and ginger dressing.

Indulge in "The Queens' Afternoon Tea" with its beautifully presented traditional treats that are baked in-house. To start, there are delicate finger sandwiches with gourmet fillings, moving on to home-baked plain and sultana scones served with Cornish clotted cream and red berry preserves.

    My friend and I had such an enjoyable afternoon at the Queens having Afternoon Tea. The service was excellent all the staff were attentive and friendly. Whilst adhering to strict Covid rules. The food itself was so good. Four finger sandwiches, a fruit scone with jam and clotted cream topped off with four mini cakes, which were freshly made and absolutely delicious. We went for the Prosecco Afternoon Tea, but you could have a Gin Tea or just a plain old tea Tea. The only disappointing thing about the whole afternoon was that we were the only people enjoying the Afternoon Tea. More people need to go as they’ll thoroughly enjoy it.

    Perfect location for everyone to meet, love the Art Deco hotel. Very clean and welcoming. Afternoon tea was nice, would have liked more sandwiches than deserts. Wide range of alcohol options.

    We enjoyed a thoroughly enjoyable Afternoon Tea, beautifully presented and outstanding taste on every item. Service was extremely polite, friendly, quick & very attentive, bringing extra tea having asked if we wanted another pot. The location was excellent too & the seating was very comfortable & the table very clean & well laid out.

    Nice table and staff, unfortunately the afternoon tea was very poor sandwiches had hardly any filling. The scone was lovely the best part of the tea. Cakes very poor quality and dry.
