A refuge that offers decent food and drink in comfortable surroundings where the welcome is warm, the advice wise, the wit keen and the atmosphere easy.
The Foundry is a dining experience of the highest standard. From front-of-house, the kitchen to behind the scenes the quality is clear to see.
Here is a restaurant that understands its clientele and, most importantly, fully understands the food it's serving its customers. Hearty fare, quality ingredients, expertly cooked and executed with absolute care and precision. The menu is simple and to the point - classic British dishes, some retro stylings, some modern twists.
The Foundry Restaurant & Bar opened in November 2005 by founders Phil Richardson & Shaun Davies who are both proud Yorkshire men with over 50 years’ restaurant experience between them. The philosophy is simple: to find the best local produce, meat from the Dales, fish from Whitby on the East Coast, game from the Yorkshire Moors and artisan wine from quality independent merchants.
The embracing and lively bar offers British menu with a twist in warm surroundings and has a reputation a local bar for local people offering the best in local produce. The extensive wine list features more than 100 house and speciality wines, as well as local beers, spirits, hot drinks and juices.
Needless to say it was once a foundry, but now the loudest sounds can be attributed to laughter and people enjoying the atmosphere. If you fancy something simple, something traditional and comforting, The Foundry is the place you've been looking for.
