“A family-run Italian restaurant, with authentic food” – at a “beautiful location on a weir of the River Wharfe” – Alessandro and Sofia Elena’s converted paper mill wins consistently good ratings after 21 years in business. “Sitting by the water on a sunny summer day could not be bettered” – and it helps that “the owners are always there”.

On the banks of the River Wharfe in an attractive former paper mill with outside terrace, Alessandro and Elena Sofia’s fifteen-year-old venture is that rare creature: a rural, traditional Italian, with a menu running from pizza and pasta to more substantial dishes. It’s consistently well-rated in reports for all aspects of its operation, but most of all its “friendly” staff (“they even treat children as if they matter”).

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
