The Tented Dining Pavilion

Yorke Arms Dining pavilion (6)

One of Ironart’s most exciting projects in recent years. A beautiful tented dining pavilion, created for Bill & Frances Atkins at The Yorke Arms near Harrogate.  The Yorke Arms is a prestigious venue –  nationally recognized as one of the UK’s top Restaurant with Rooms. Chef/Proprietor Frances Atkins and her talented team have held a Michelin Star since 2003.

The dining pavilion was designed by Andy Thearle at Ironart, it comprises of a sculptural, galvanized mild steel gazebo frame, designed to stand bare in the winter as an eye-catching focal point in the garden. In summer the addition of a weatherproof, fire-resistant canvas cover transforms the struture into a breathtaking tented dining room with an integral table that comfortably seats eight. A domed canopy over an open fire in the centre of the table creates a unique and intimate atmosphere.
