Nestled within the enchanting town of Ripon, North Yorkshire, The Old Deanery stands as a magnificent Jacobean mansion, housing Yorkshire’s newest restaurant destination.  From winter 2023, The Old Deanery has opened its doors as an exclusive dining experience, with renowned chef Adam Jackson at the helm.

If you haven’t been to The Old Deanery recently, you haven’t been to The Old Deanery.  Taken over by family-owned Layton Hill Hotels in late 2021, the site has been operating as an exclusive use wedding and events venue for two successful seasons.  Now, with the addition of Adam Jackson to the team, The new Old Deanery – restaurant with rooms - is born.

The restaurant promises the pinnacle of culinary artistry, where fine dining becomes an exquisite journey through flavours.  Immerse yourself in the opulence of the historic building and city and indulge in the finest pleasures at The Old Deanery, a treasure trove of elegance, hospitality, and epicurean delight.
