Elliot's

31 High Street Pateley Bridge North Yorkshire HG3 5JZ

If you have a picnic to pack in Pateley Bridge – and try saying that after a drink or two – Elliot's is the place to do it. The fabulously full deli and food store sits on a high street filled with similarly inviting independent shops, inviting you in with its trays of locally sourced fruit and veg. They'll make you up a sandwich at the back – the cheese counter is excellent, many from the Dales – which you can supplement with a selection of olives, some gourmet crisps and anything else you fancy (though for a supreme pork-and-stilton pie we suggest Kendall's Farm butchers, just up the road). Then all you have to do is find the path to Brimham Rocks, four miles away, where you can eat all this bounty amongst the strangely sculpted shapes.
