A range of menus to suit all tastes


Our menus are created by Lee Stainthorpe and his talented team of chefs. Lee has been head chef for more than eleven years and his reputation was established with high quality contemporary cooking using local, seasonal produce – this culminated in achieving 2 AA Rosettes for 2013/2014.


The menus change frequently to make the most of seasonal ingredients and we pride ourselves on using as much local produce as possible. The pork used in our breakfast sausages comes from our own pigs reared on Barbara & Peter’s farm just a few miles from the hotel. Our own chickens provide eggs and we grow fruit including apples, pears, plums, damsons and grapes to make jam and sauces.

Our commitment to local ingredients gained us the accolade of Taste Durham Highest Quality Assured and Local Produce Champion. Read more about our trusted suppliers.

At The Morritt we’re committed to finding you your perfect meal. Please ask a member of our team if you would like to see our allergen menu during or before your visit.
