The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Eat and drink

North Yorkshire is a surprisingly good place to eat out, with loads of great country pubs, rural tea rooms and village cafés. Often pubs are the main choice in small towns and villages, and there are some excellent places dishing up great local produce, with the best places enjoying big reputations – for example the Angel at Hetton, or the Michelin-starred Devonshire Arms, where reservations are essential in busy periods. Stand-alone restaurants are scarcer, but the main towns all have good standbys for fish and chips, curries, pizzas and the like, and these days – in the Dales at least, – there is often a chic hotel with a decent restaurant, or a classy deli or modern bistro. There's a real emphasis on local sourcing and seasonality, even in the most out-of-the-way of places, and local producers are passionate about their foodstuffs – whether it's the cheeses of Wensleydale, lamb from the local hills, or more esoteric offerings, like Yorkshire chorizo, which you'll find on many a menu.
