Black Swan Hotel Market Place Helmsley YO62 5BJ 01439 770 466
If it's time for tea it's straight to Helmsley's boutique Black Swan, whose Tearoom & Brasserie is a rather lovely venue for sipping the best cuppa in the North York Moors. We are talking fancy, from hand-picked estate teas (there's a menu of over twenty) to swoon-worthy macaroons, meringues, tarts, eclairs and cakes – indeed there's a chocolate ganache in particular that will forever have us smiling with glee. Plump for the sandwich, scone and patisserie afternoon tea, which is so grand it's billed as an "experience". Prices, naturally, verge on the unacceptable for canny Yorkshire folk, especially if you add a glass of champers to the whole affair, but it's a delight all round and there's a modish brasserie menu too (gnocchi, seared miso salmon, fish and chips) for those occasions when cake just isn't enough.
