The Terrace At The Kimberley
Kings Road
Enjoy exceptional food and excellent service at The Terrace bistro. The Terrace is a place to meet, eat and relax, just a short walk from the centreof Harrogate and next door to the International Conference Centre. The stylish interior, warm welcome and menu bursting with seasonalflavours will have you returning again and again to experience the taste of The Terrace.We are very proud of our food and our talented kitchen brigade work hardto create dishes using locally sourced, fresh ingredients.Not only does our head chef Rudi Heer select rare breeds for his menu, as a Swiss Yorkshireman he is one himself. Rudi, originally from Switzerland, is from a long line of Swiss/Italian restaurateurs, chefs and farmers and feels totally at home in the Yorkshire Dales.He says: “As a young boy I enjoyed an outdoor life hunting, fishing and farming, but the greatest memories were helping my grandmother cooking and baking, watching the amazing things she was able to create from the produce around her”. After leaving school Rudi served his apprenticeship at a leading lakeside hotel and then went to work in top hotels in Switzerland and on the international hotel scene in Kuwait, Malawi, Italy, France and Germany.Rudi’s knowledge of Yorkshire produce would put most locals to shame. He has built up a network of Yorkshire suppliers that he can call on to supply the finest meat, fish, vegetables and cheese to create some stunning dishes. Rudi’s dishes have the fine touch of a classically trained chef with the appeal of rustic, home cooked food.
Zolsha - Crosshills
Skipton Road
Zolsha Restaurant has always been the dream of an 18-year-old boy, Tufail Miah, who decided within six months of working as a porter in his initial job, that he wanted to open his own restaurant.We have been nominated for customer excellence and also been awarded the best restaurant in 2008 by quality foodsAt the age of 18, the dream was realised with the opening of a restaurant, seating 80, on Castle gate, Knaresborough called ‘The Spice Merchant’. Since then, through sheer enthusiasm, determination and hard work, the restaurant had been very successful, always going from strength to strength, however due to some complications with his joint partner he decided to sell his share thus the dream remained just a dream.After working elsewhere for a while, He still didn’t want to give up so he decided to again embark on another business. In winter 2007, He launched Zolsha restaurant in Knaresborough, a few streets away from his previous Restaurant. This was going to be his dream accomplished! The name ‘Zolsha’ is a word widely known as a ‘place of gathering’ in Bengali language and thus he thought what better name for a restaurant!Whilst the food at the restaurant is outstandingly consistent, the restaurant also has its own themed design. The restaurants have been designed to provide a contemporary atmosphere and carry a certain aura which is no less than being in any major city in the world.Ever since the opening of Zolsha, It has gained a huge reputation for its high quality cuisine, vibrant atmosphere and first class service and even old customers from his previous restaurant are now regulars to this one. The Restaurant has already been nominated for the customer Excellence Award and is in the finalists.
