Rudding Park extends life of Horto pop-up restaurant

Rudding Park extends life of Horto pop-up restaurant

The Horto pop-up restaurant at the four-red-AA-star, 90-bedroom Rudding Park hotel in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, is to be extended until April 2017 following its success over the summer.

Focused on seasonal produce, the restaurant will then be relocated to the hotel's new £9.5m spa development, due to open May 2017.

Peter Banks, managing director of Rudding Park, said that the popularity of Horto, which opened four months ago, had extended the life of the restaurant.

"The whole team put their heart and soul into creating the Horto experience," he explained. "Taking inspiration from head chef Murray Wilson [pictured left], kitchen gardener Adrian Reeve [pictured right] and the interior design team, we've turned our vision into a reality and created a new contemporary dining experience, which our guests seem to love.

Wilson, who was runner-up in the BBC TV programme Masterchef: The Professionals in 2008, said: "We have built up a fantastic following. I am looking forward to continuing to build on this and really excited about the move to the new spa extension in the spring."

The name Horto is taken from the Latin for kitchen garden.

Rudding Park also operates the two-AA-rosette Clocktower restaurant
