About the hotel
The Old Deanery Hotel and Restaurant is a lovely old building situated in its own private grounds in the shadow of the beautiful Cathedral in Ripon, yet only a few minutes walk from the market square centre of this delightful small "city" in North Yorkshire! The Old Deanery dates from 1625 but there have been many alterations over the years and this grade 2 red star listed building was refurbished as a hotel in 2003. It has a unique atmosphere where the old and the new blend in a relaxed and welcoming way. There is a walled courtyard parking area at the front and a large garden to explore at the back, where guests can enjoy drinks and meals in the warmer months.
There are 3 restaurant rooms and a comfortable and stylish bar lounge on the ground floor, with a log fire in winter. The food served is excellent, prepared from locally sourced good quality ingredients and well presented - a place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or wedding, or simply to enjoy a night away. We welcome children and dogs so celebrating can be as inclusive as you wish! Any of the restaurant rooms may be hired for exclusive use: the Cathedral dining room overlooks the Cathedral and leads into the Dean's dining room which has a garden view. The Garden room restaurant is a delightful room from breakfast to dinner for relaxed meals and access to the garden terrace. On the first floor which is reached by the superb 17th Century oak staircase there are 6 individually designed bedrooms with high ceilings, shutters at the windows and either a Cathedral or garden view. A further narrower flight of stairs takes us to the second floor where there are 5 more ensuite bedrooms with sloping, beamed ceilings and smaller windows, but also with a view over the garden or Cathedral. Yes, you may well hear the chimes of the Cathedral clock or perhaps the bell ringers practising on Wednesdays from 7 till 9pm, but it really does add to the charm of the place.

Weekend Break for 3 female firiends
A lovely hotel, perfectly placed.
Very approachable friendly staff and great facilities. Lovely cooked breakfast - only small criticism was the small window of opportunity for breakfast ordering on Sunday, between 8.30 and 9.30 which seemed a little short for a Sunday morning. Other than that we were all completely happy and would definitely recommend whole heartedly.
