Stew & Oyster is moving into Malton’s iconic Town Hall

The Fitzwilliam (Malton) Estate have announced that the popular Stew & Oyster brand will open a new restaurant in the newly restored Town Hall.

The historic premises, in the heart of Malton’s Market Place, has benefitted from a £380,000 investment in its restoration by the Fitzwilliam Estate, retaining and restoring many of the building’s original features thanks to a number of skilled local craftsmen

The new Malton site will be the Stew & Oyster’s 6th and latest location and the team plan to open in April 2019, serving a range of regional craft beers and ales, alongside a simple dining-menu

Since 2009, the Yorkshire based firm has seen great success beginning with their first site Calls Landing in Leeds, and now boasting a total of five (soon to be six) establishments across the county.

Having built their portfolio of well-established eateries, specifically in impressive and historical properties, the iconic landmark Grade II listed building was a perfect fit for their contemporary aesthetic, using casual furnishings married up with key focal points of the buildings, such as exposed stone work. 

Helen Barry, Estate Manager for the Fitzwilliam Estate, commented “We’re delighted that we have been able to attract Stew & Oyster to come to Malton and we’re very impressed with their approach to jointly undertaking this significant renovation of our flagship building in the Market Place.  We are very much looking forward to seeing this lovely building come alive, for residents and visitors during the day and into the evening, and welcoming Stew & Oyster to the town!”
