Naming our restaurant

Naming a restaurant is no easy feat, but it does allow for some real creativity to shine! So, when it came to naming our restaurant, we thought we’d get a little help from our friends – all of you.

Many of our lovely customers took to social media to make their suggestions, some of which very creative indeed. After much deliberation, The Weathervane was selected as the winning choice for our 2 AA Rosette rated restaurant.

It was an option suggested by Bill Taylor, of nearby Knaresborough, who has visited us at the Feversham Arms Hotel only once, but he remembered the distinctive weathervane situated on the roof of the restaurant.

For coming up with the winning option, Bill has won a meal for two at our newly named restaurant. He commented: “When I saw the competition on Facebook I thought back to the weathervane and felt it had a nice ring to it. I’m looking forward to going back to the Feversham Arms and sampling the food there again, it was thoroughly enjoyable the first time round.”

Our head chef Norman Mackenzie is looking forward to seeing the restaurant get its own identity: “Our menus have a local focus and are heavily influenced by seasonal produce that is available locally, through suppliers or even by foraging for it ourselves.”

Dinner has always been the main focus in our restaurant where we offer a six course tasting menu or three course á la Carte dinner. We also have our infamous cheese trolley and a huge variety of top quality wines, which we can pair for you to each dish.

We also offer afternoon tea throughout the year and, in the summer months; we extend out onto our Mediterranean poolside terrace for lunchtime dining with a difference. It’s a truly relaxing experience, and one to take full advantage of on warm summer evenings.

Our general manager, Charles Merchie, would like to thank everyone who had entered the competition:

“We had some fantastic entries and it took us a lot longer to choose the winner than we first anticipated. We are looking forward to getting the name over the door and letting everyone know our restaurant is called The Weathervane.”

We hope you are able to dine with us soon at our newly named restaurant.
