Our new summer menu has launched

As we move into summer, with warmer days and longer evenings, our menus are changed to reflect the change in seasons. Our summer menus showcase some of the best seasonal produce much of which is grown in our own kitchen garden at Mount St John.

We have introduced the new Provenance Ploughman’s, a classic for all pubs, which is perfect to be enjoyed while dining on our sunny terrace overlooking the Vale of Mowbray. Or why not try the new seafood platter which our group chef has added a few modern twists to, both of these platters are perfect for al fresco dining with a glass of wine or a cold beer.

With the introduction of our new poultry supplier, Soanes, why not try the classic chicken kiev with a modern twist, or if you are after something lighter, why not try our refreshing dish of tuna steak with roasted summer vegetables. If you have a sweet tooth then try the Strawberry Alaska with a refreshing strawberry granita or a light vanilla panna cotta with raspberry & balsamic macaroon.

Warrendale Wagyu

At Provenance Inns, we aim to provide our guests with the finest locally sourced produce.

That is why we have collaborated with Warrendale Wagyu to make our Black and Blue Yorkshire Wagyu Burger, Harrogate Blue, Skinny Fries, Black Sheep Beer Battered Onion Rings, Yorkshire Relish & Pickles.

Warrendale Wagyu from York was established in 2017 and is one of the largest wagyu herds in the UK, consisting of both full blood and cross bred wagyu beef. Wagyu beef is a softer, more flavoursome meat and contains a higher percentage of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, making it a healthier product as well.

The Harrogate Hospitality Awards

Harrogate’s hospitality heroes were rewarded for their excellence and commitment on the 4th June during a gala dinner with a theme celebrating the best the town has to offer at Harrogate’s Royal Hall.

The Harrogate Hospitality and Tourism Awards aim to promote the town’s hospitality offering through celebrating and rewarding those individuals who show the highest levels of commitment and strive towards excellence on the town’s behalf.

Provenance Inns would like to congratulate Laura Fell, The West Park Hotel, who won the award for Outstanding Customer Service which was sponsored by Slingsby gin. This award was thoroughly deserved. Well done Laura!
