Exquisitely Individual

The Gallery

Headed up by Australian born Chef Paul Peters, The Gallery offers a wide selection of exciting menus which will infuse the best of Yorkshire ingredients with creative food combinations, exciting taste bud-popping flavours and modern simplicity.

Named for its dual functionality, throughout the day The Gallery is home to ‘Helmsley Galleries’, the most important commercial collection of art in the North  which showcases many original pieces of artwork. The Gallery is open daily (unless privately reserved for events) and welcomes guests to view the artwork on show in this unique environment. As the evening draws, The Gallery then takes on the more functional role as a restaurant and is home to the art of Gastro Artist Paul Peters.

Paul Peters, is the Gastro-artist, and showcasing his creations in The Gallery; a six-course Tasting Menu, the Daily Dinner Menu, and the Market Menu.

To quote Debbie Hall, Hull Daily Mail, on Paul Peters’ food, “It’s just like art on a plate”.
