Traditional venue, contemporary menu
Named after one of the North East’s most famous artist John Gilroy – best known for his Guinness advertising posters – The Morritt’s award-winning restaurant serves up innovative dishes that vary according to what’s in season. Ingredients are carefully sourced from local suppliers. Fruits – apples, pears, plums, damsons and grapes – handpicked from the gardens are used to make deliciously fresh jams and sauces.
Gilroy’s is smart without being stuffy – local artists work adorns the walls with oak panelling, a woodblock floor and leather-upholstered seating. Head chef Lee Stainthorpe treats diners to a complimentary amuse-bouche, followed by oven-hot homemade breads and flavoured butters.. Finish with one of the pastry chef’s signature puddings, or an intense Anglo-French cheeseboard (if you’ve room, try all 8) complemented by a full-bodied red. Artistic flair – on the walls and in the kitchen – make Gilroy’s a first-rate dining experience.
