The restaurant, Hudson’s by Craig Atchinson, at The Grand Hotel and Spa in York has now reopened as part of a £15m renovation across the whole five-star property.
The three AA Rosette restaurant has been downsized, with the number of covers reducing from 60 to 28, and moved to a smaller, adjacent room in a bid to focus on culinary excellence.
The restaurant has changed its menu and now offers a nine-course, locally-sourced tasting menu and wine flight by award-winning head chef Craig Atchinson and Hudson’s restaurant manager Antonio De Angelis.
Craig Atchinson, head chef of The Grand Hotel & Spa’s restaurants, said: “The team and I are so excited to re-open Hudson’s with a fresh look and a new menu where nature and luxury combine. The menu features a few signature dishes with a focus on wild food.”
Philip Bolson, general manager of The Grand Hotel & Spa, York said: “We’re delighted to see Hudson’s re-open. The Grand is Grade II listed so while the space hasn’t been dramatically overhauled, we’ve unveiled a few exquisite historic details that we love – and we think our visitors will too.”
The hotel has been undergoing an extensive refurbishment since June 2016, with 100 bedrooms being added in the £15m development.
As part of the project, a new 130-cover all-day dining restaurant, The Rise, opened in June, while the new bedrooms will aim to launch by the end of the year.
