Middlethorpe Hall is an elegant place; it's also quiet and relaxing. We went for lunch - a special deal at £19.90 per person for two courses. We waited rather a long time in the drawing room for drinks and the menu. The tables in the dining room are a little too close together; I don't want to have my neighbours' conversation imposed on me. We had starters and main courses which were very nice but on the small side. It's best not to be hungry in this place! The dishes also contained too much salt; chef - please don't add salt, we can add our own if we want it. We took our coffee and petit fours (not included in the price) in the lounge. The coffee was just about OK but not very strong (even though we asked for it strong). They don't have skimmed milk, only semi-skimmed. The service during the meal was efficient and 'correct' but not delivered with much enthusiasm. We would go there again if we wanted a grand place to eat (and take guests) but there is better food to be had elsewhere in the York area.
