It's tasting menus only (for which you must book - they'll even open for lunch Thu-Sat if you book ahead) at this Yorkshire gem; our formula price is on the low side - the restaurant advises us to expect a per-head cost of around £100.
Harden's survey result
“A husband and wife labour of love” – Paul and Liz Jackson’s ancient inn (12th century) overlooking the North York Moors offers “a feast for all the senses” with its six-course and eight-course tasting menus (there’s no à la carte). “Service is exceptional with a really personal touch”.
This 13th-century inn is “a little gem set on a hill overlooking the North Yorks Moors”; while Paul Jackson’s cooking is “not what you would expect in these parts (Yorkshire food is not normally served up in seven small courses!)” – the results are “superb”.
“A charming inn, tucked away in glorious countryside close to Helmsley and Rievaulx Abbey” – and what “astonishing food to find in the middle of nowhere essentially” from chef Paul Jackson (“beautifully prepared local ingredients, with game a highlight”). Service is a highpoint too, with “serious attention to detail and guests”.
An historic pub in a village on the edge of the moors which has “really upped the game” with its “indulgent” cooking, producing some simply “stunning” locally sourced fare, with game “a particular strong point”. “We visited on a snowy night, but it deserves to be heaving, even in a blizzard!”
