Harden's says

Frances Atkins, one of the most prominent British chefs of the century and the first woman in the UK to earn a Michelin star, has launched a new venture, accompanied by chef Roger Olive and front-of-house manager John Tullett – her team for more than 20 years. Paradise café is in a garden centre near Harrogate, less than 20 miles from the Yorke Arms, the old coaching inn on the Yorkshire Moors where she made her name

“The new venture from the old Yorke Arms team is absolutely perfect in every way”“to see Frances Atkins preparing your lunch in the open kitchen is a wonderful experience”. Following the sad ending of her long tenure at the famous moorland inn, the first woman to earn a Michelin star in the UK is now wowing guests at a garden centre near Harrogate, alongside her trusted lieutenants chef Roger Oliver and manager John Tullett. There’s “a high-quality menu available throughout the day, while dinner is only on Fridays” (twice a month) – and it’s all “Michelin-quality food without the pretensions of a star”.

“Finally, Frances Atkins has opened a place to sample her exemplary cooking after the sad ending of the Yorke Arms as a ‘go-to’ destination”. Her legion of fans will be relieved to know it’s “an easy place to visit”, in a garden centre close to Harrogate. The first woman in the UK to earn a Michelin star, Frances has revived her Yorke Arms team of more than 20 years for the new project – chef Roger Olive and front-of-house manager John Tullett.

"My first visit for breakfast to my partners favourite "breccie with the girls" haunt. The food as impecable as always, very friendly service who always seem to remember you even if it's weeks since your last visit. This is how you run a restaurant. "
