Bar & Lounge in Otley near Leeds
Chevin Country Park Hotel is such a friendly place, many of our guests just want to come in and join us for a drink. Our lounge and bar areas are warm and welcoming at any time of the year and in the summer the outdoor space is idea for a chilled glass of Prosecco or a Glass of Pimms on the decking.
Chevin is great for catering to different moods and guests. The Acorn Bar, as its name would suggest, hosts Chevin’s main bar, along with several tables surrounded by mounds of cushions on its informal benches. The bar is a place for guests to sit with friends, grab a bite – our lounge service menu is available 10.00am for mid-morning snacks, and from 12.00pm to 9pm for bar meals and afternoon tea.
The cosy Snug Lounge, popular with families and friends alike, is a smaller area just outside the bar which stocks board games and books, and even more cushions than you could shake a stick at – and there are plenty pf those around Chevin! Its natural wood décor and warm colours are all part of the “snug” feeling of the lounge.
If you fancy some quiet time, make yourself at home in the Garden Lounge, where you’ll find yourself in a place without background music, only comfy sofas and room to read your newspaper in peace. The open fire is a relaxing feature in the evenings, and the patio doors giving direct access out to the main gardens are perfect for a breath of fresh air in the warmer months.
Every Crerar Hotel has its own malt whisky menu. The Acorn Bar stocks over 30 single malts, including whiskies from the Highlands, Lowlands, Islands and Speyside as well as a selection of quality gins and vodkas.
We love our wines and Champagnes and over the years have found many gems and a few absolute diamonds. Our list is a comprehensive selection of varieties, flavours and styles from all around the world and has been exclusively hand-picked with the help of Crerar Hotels personal master of wines, Tarquin de Burgh.
If a pint is more your thing, Chevin has two lagers on draft, one being Crerar’s very own Heart & Soul brewed exclusively for Crerar Hotels by Belhaven Best. A real ale tap is also ever present with changing guest ales courtesy of local Ilkley Brewery. Traditional Olde English cider is also available for lovers of the pressed apple.
Chevin’s cocktail menu includes all the classics, though perhaps best of all is Chevin’s own creation, in homage to our sister hotels in Scotland - The Flying Scotsman. A moreish concoction of whisky, vermouth, Angostura bitters and honey served over ice.
Chevin’s lounge service menu is available until 9pm for hot food and 11pm for sandwiches and lounge treats. These can be taken in the Acorn Bar, Snug Lounge or Garden Lounge, or can of course, be taken up to your room.
Afternoon tea is served in the Garden Lounge daily.
