Restaurant in Horsforth Hall Park

Post by Bugblatter »

I have been trying to remember the name of the restaurant which used to be in Hall Park in Horsforth. This would have been during the 1970s and 1980s. Anyone able to recall?

[quote="uncle mick"]I think it was Low Hall

I do remember there was a Restaurant in a small Park, Horseforth owned by the Stanhope ( ?) family. could this be the one. The owner around the 1960s was the first to ban smoking on his premises
Not being too familiar with that area i could be well off.

Just realised that place was always known as at Rodley.

Not Low Hall, that was the other side of the A65.

Not 100% sure, but I think this was the structure: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.83753 ... !1e3?hl=en

It was an Italian restaurant. Might it have been called The Roman Garden? I visited it on several occasions. My recollection of its name could well be incorrect as is often the case these days.

I lived in Horsforth and can confirm that It was certainly The Roman Garden in 1979: we enjoyed a lovely meal there on my 30th birthday.
