We’re open all week for delicious breakfasts, satisfying lunches and rather indulgent afternoon teas and for three nights a week we’re also open in the evenings. Or you can just pop in for a coffee and a slice of home made cake – we’ll even let you use our wifi.
The Brasserie offers a relaxed and welcoming ambience (and deeply comfortable chairs). For us it’s all about the food – fresh, local, seasonal and prepared with an eye for playful and inventive new combinations: all from our open kitchen – come and have a look!
Our menu is classic modern British with a twist, and we pride ourselves on sourcing as locally as possible.
We really are passionate about every detail. We cure our own salt beef (from local Dales cows), smoke our own salmon, and bake all our own bread and cakes fresh each morning. We’ll forage for wild garlic, sweet talk local farmers into selling us their best beasts and scour the area for exciting new produce and ideas.
The Brasserie is located in The Courtyard, a beautiful barn conversion just south of Settle on the A65. The Courtyard is home to a handful of independent businesses including The Courtyard Dairy (if you like cheese you’ll love this shop), Dalesbred stunning hand crafted furniture, Abraham Moon & Co’s beautiful Yorkshire wool accessories, The Lime Gallery’s carefully created display of artworks and handmade gifts and our own partner in Wine, Buon Vino.
If you are having a special occasion and would like to celebrate with us at The Brasserie in The Courtyard please speak to a member of staff, we are available for private dining parties even on the evening we are not currently open.
Our staff know and love food and are committed to providing guests with a great dining experience. Providing a friendly welcome and a strong knowledge of the provenance of the dishes and ingredients to be found on our menu, we hope you will be inspired by what you find.
Owner / Head Chef
He has served canapés at Michael Parkinson’s house party and barbecued chicken for Liam Gallagher: Richard got his first taste for cooking at school (where he made cakes) did his training in his home town of Harrogate and earned his stripes in the Home Counties working in West Hendred in Oxfordshire, the Red Lion in Upper Basildon and the original gastro pub, The Crooked Billet at Stoke Row near Henley on Thames.
He has catered at Royal Ascot at Cheltenham Gold Cup, and was chef consultant at the nearby Craven Arms for four years before taking over management and cooking at The Brasserie in The Courtyard.
Probably characterised by his seemingly endless energy and enquiring mind, Richard has a passion for provenance, always delighting in finding exciting new local produce. His style is playful, inventive and unpretentious.
He’s a people person who likes to make sure that everything is properly prepared, which is why he’s perfect in The Brasserie kitchen. Matty’s just starting out in the world of catering and enjoys working alongside the restaurant chefs, learning new things and helping make fantastic things happen in the kitchen.
Now that catering has captured his imagination he’s planning to start an NVQ course in chefing so he can accelerate his learning and progress in his career. He’s particularly interested in seafood cooking and once he’s got that certificate the world will be his oyster.
‘I’m like a much much younger Mary Berry’ says Andrea Thornton, who has been baking her scrumptious array of cakes, scones and muffins at The Brasserie since 2013.
And with over twenty years experience in the hospitality industry, including running a restaurant in the Almeria region of Spain, Andrea is a self avowed people person. She has a keen eye for presentation and creates a daily bake for The Brasserie’s delightful afternoon teas.
Andrea’s favourite cake is an orange cake made with freshly ground almonds for a nutty, citrus flavour. Her cakes are made with love, care and precision – some would call her The Queen of the Afternoon Tea.
Hayley Mace had her first catering job at 13, washing up in a restaurant kitchen and took to the industry like the proverbial duck to water. As soon as she was old enough she was waitressing, and each progressive job saw her taking on more and more responsibility.
Hardworking Hayley likes things to run smoothly and now she’s organising the paperwork, invoicing, wages, rotas and marketing at The Brasserie, she’ll make sure that’s exactly what happens.
‘You meet all sorts of people in this job. It’s really sociable, and that’s what I love about it. I even like the hours!’ says Hayley.
When she’s not working, she can be found charging up mountains in the Yorkshire Dales, Ingleborough is her favourite …
Growing up on a Dales farm where cows and sheep were raised for meat gave Joanne a firm grounding in food production and sustainability. Not only is she committed to serving good, fresh, locally sourced food, she also likes to make sure that Brasserie customers have a great experience.
She’s organised with a fierce attention to detail, which makes her the ideal person to make sure everything is running smoothly. And she’s tidy. Boy is she tidy. Joanne makes sure that not a cup or spoon is out of place.
Joanne is also a vegetarian, which means she’s able to point vegetarian customers in the direction of the tastiest veggie dishes on the menu …

Hebden Goat is made on the farm by Gillian and her eight (yes just eight!) goats. The cheese is slowly set before being moulded and aged for three weeks. The wrinkly rind breaks down to a smooth paste and rich goaty and grassy flavours.

With the milk price falling the Davenports took a short course in cheese-making and invented Britain’s first unpasteurised soft, rich creamy blue. Made by Michael & Mary Davenport in Lincolnshire, England.
