Aristocats Cattery

Aristocats was established in 1995, its aim to provide a superior level of holiday accommodation for cats. When the previous owners retired in October 2010, the cattery was purchased by Calcaria Vet, a local Veterinary Practice with surgeries operating in Tadcaster and York. The cattery is still staffed by the same team of people so you will still see familiar faces when you come to see us.

SangThai Restaurant

Authentic Thai food cooked the traditional way

The finest, authentic Thai cuisine prepared from the very best ingredients including fresh herbs, spices and exotic vegetables sent to us every week from growers in Thailand. The Sangthai menu is about choice, flavours, quality and presentation - a true taste of Thailand.

The traditional Thai food is certainly full-flavoured, soups sparkle with chilli and lemongrass and curries are rich with aromatic and spicy tastes. There is no bland compromised cooking here, but those with a less fiery palate shouldn't be put off as all dishes are cooked to order and so the heat can be turned down!

Warm and friendly Thai staff provide a typical Thai welcome to this beautiful country cottage restaurant. Our extensive grounds feature an oriental garden complete with bamboo furniture and a Thai-style pavilion for outdoor eating. Tropical plants and the sound of flowing water providing a tranquil setting for that special romantic dinner.

A visit to the Sangthai restaurant provides a complete Thai dining experience. However, our reputation for fine food and attentive service does create a demand for tables and so booking is recommended at all times but particularly at weekends.
