About us

Nikki and Simon are delighted to welcome you to Beatson House and look forward to giving you a warm welcome and a fantastic dining experience. As local residents we saw the unique opportunity to run a well-loved and established local business whilst allowing Nikki to return to a preferred career path in the hospitality industry following a time working for larger corporations.

‘Our main reason for buying Beatson house from the previous owners Anita and Andy was to get back to working in a friendly environment with the opportunity to serve the local community connected to something we love, dining! Our plan wherever possible is to source the best local Yorkshire produce, employing young local people, whilst enjoying running this little gem.’

It’s a real privilege to work with such a loyal and hardworking team and we consider ourselves to be very lucky to have inherited a great Kitchen team under the expert eye of Head Chef Lee Haigh, whilst front of house is looked after by ‘Auntie’ Margaret and Hannah.

As for Simon, no career change for him, he’s been told he’s too clumsy to be allowed out to serve customers and relegated to doing the books. Career highlights are tasting Lee’s next amazing creation and being emergency pot washer should one of the porter’s fall ill!
