Up in Yorkshire and feeling a bit (very) peckish? Not to worry, we’ve done the hard work for you and picked seven of our favourite places to stop off for some food.
The Dog And Gun
Whether you’re after traditional British pub food or something offering more of an acquired taste, this family-run pub in the small village of Knayton in North Yorkshire is the perfect place to enjoy something to eat. It was also a Trip Advisor Certificate Of Excellence winner in 2015 with one reviewer claiming ‘the food is amazing and would match any ‘high class’ city restaurant.’
Based in the picturesque village of Thornton-le-Dale in the incredible North York Moors National Park, this quaint 18th century bistro is in a great location to stop off for some food. Sourcing their food ethically and as locally as possible hosts Adam and Claire create a truly welcoming environment for you to relax in and delicious recipes to get tucked into.
This small, family-run restaurant is ranked the number 1 place to eat by in Whitby reviewers on Trip Advisor thanks to its relaxing atmosphere and mouth-watering food. Based on classic European bistros of Italy and France with the food heavily influenced from the same regions gives you a little taste of other cultures from across the continent while being sat in the charming streets of Yorkshire.
The Hidden Gem
The Hidden Gem cafe is…well a hidden gem to anybody who hasn’t tried it before and with a brand new menu coming soon even if you have been you’ve got a great reason to make another visit. Part of the WORK Ltd charity which gives peoople with learning disabilities a chance to reach their full potential in life this is a really special cafe using local produce freshly prepared on site every day by head chef Scott and the finest seasonal ingredients.
If you fancy stopping off for a bite to eat with stunning views then there really is no better place than the Grill and Seafood Restaurant at the Cliffemount Hotel which has glorious views over Runswick Bay from your table. And we’re pleased to confirm it even looks delightful when the sun isn’t out (and we know that’s an awful lot in England). The food is locally produced and fish from the bay is freshly cooked to your requirements, while the menu changes regularly always giving you new things to try out.
The Pipe and Glass Inn
Standing on the site of the original gatehouse to Dalton Park this restaurant dates back to the 15th century and while it keeps its stunning character and country pub feel, the current owners have totally refurbished it to keep the place looking clean and fresh. The Pipe and Glass Inn was awarded East Yorkshire’s first and only Michelin star in 2010,and has retained it ever since.
Do you love burgers? And do you love Yorkshire puddings? Well how about putting the two of those together to create a monster meal? Well that’s what the Smokehouse BBQ restaurant in Wakefield has done. It’s pretty unlikely that you’ll be able to finish it all, but it does look pretty tasty, and if you manage to eat it in under 30 minutes you don’t even have to pay for it. Surely it’s got to be worth a try…you get a milkshake on the side too!
