The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Eat and drink

For a region with a fairly limited population, the North York Moors has plenty of good places to eat and drink. The country pub is the mainstay and there are some excellent village pubs and rural inns which concentrate on dishing up great local produce, from organic meats to village-grown veg. The pub, in fact, is often in effect the local restaurant, and the best places have widely known reputations – reservations are often essential in busy periods. Stand-alone restaurants themselves are scarcer, at least within the National Park boundaries, though you don't have to head far to the surrounding towns for fish and chips, curries, pizzas and the like. For cafe life, and a choice of places to get your macchiato and green tea, best head for Pickering or Helmsley, which offer a range of places, from traditional tea room to contemporary caff.
