The beach at Staithes

The Staithes Gallery is in a fine Georgian building in the heart of the old village. Upstairs is a splendid dining room and downstairs showcases the very best contemporary art inspired by the sea, the cliffs, the moors and the people of the area in a village that has always been a magnet for artists.

It was the convivial dinners prepared by Lisa for the residential courses run by Staithes Art School, that prompted us to link up with the Gallery for a series of Squidbeak dinners we have named  Lisa@thegallery.

The evening will begin at 7.15pm in the gallery with a welcome drink and a chance to view the work on show. We will then move upstairs for a three course dinner. Sean Welsh from the independent wine merchants Flourish and Prosper in Howden will present a choice of quality wines to match the food.

Lisa is happy to accommodate food allergies, intolerances, vegetarians and any special dietary requirements, but these should be discussed with Alison at the time of booking. Payment will be taken in full in advance.
