Italian restaurant in Otley
Hartley House, 50 Mill Way - LS21
“With its attentive staff and lovely setting by the river”, Alessandro & Sofia Elena Tocca’s “wonderful Italian restaurant” draws an appreciative crowd and is “a favourite of many locals”. One of Wharfedale’s most consistent performers for two decades, it has blossomed since moving into an old weir-side mill five years ago.
Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Ilkley
32 The Grove - LS29
“Afternoon tea IS Bettys!". This old-fashioned tearoom is “always worth the queue” for its epic teas and fine spreads of pastries and sarnies. It’s also “a great place to meet over a very good breakfast. Coffee, understandably, is excellent!”
Indian restaurant in Shipley
4 Saltaire Rd - BD18
Mohammed Sabir was still working as a bus driver in Shipley when he launched his Kashmiri curry business as a mobile takeaway from his Commer van, the ‘Spice Box’ in 1976. The next year he opened his first bricks-and-mortar restaurant Aagrah, which still wins consistently solid marks for its food and has nine branches across Yorkshire.
Italian restaurant in Leeds
115 & 107 Otley Road - LS6
“I’ve been going to Salvo’s for almost 40 years… it’s still great” – this well-known Italian restaurant has been run by the Dammone family since 1976, providing pizza and pasta alongside more substantial dishes (including such Italian specials as ‘hand-cut chips’!).
Indian restaurant in Bradford
1276 Leeds Rd - BD3
Shabir Hussain’s “fantastic” curry house prepares “Indian, Asian, Balti, Pakistani dishes to sort everyone’s taste buds”. Over three decades it has grown from a 28-seater in Bradford city centre into a national chain with spin-offs from Birmingham to Glasgow. The menu features two ‘challenges’ for the greedy or brave – on quantity and heat.
. The Box Tree
French restaurant in Ilkley
35-37 Church St - LS29
“Well worth the trek while on a trip ‘up North’”, noted a Wimbledon-based reporter on this esteemed and “always enjoyable” foodie destination. Set in one of the town’s oldest buildings, it first became a restaurant in 1962 and was cradle to the talents of the young Marco Pierre White prior to its last 19 years of ownership by chef Simon Gueller and his wife Rena. There’s a three-course menu at lunch – dinner is 6 courses plus canapés, amuse-bouche and bread – and fans say the kitchen “absolutely nails it”.
Italian restaurant in Leeds
603 Meanwood Road - LS6
“Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Leeds”, according to fans of this “stylish and warm” fixture in slightly “out of town” Meanwood. It serves a “really outstanding menu with many small plates to satisfy everyone, including a wide variety of vegetarian dishes, plus a great selection of wines and cocktails too”.
Pan-Asian restaurant in Harrogate
28 Swan Road - HG1
The “amazing pan-Asian food” has been a crowd-pleaser at this venue under the Studley Hotel for more than twenty years. “The room itself is perhaps a little drab, but boy the food is good” – “we’ve been coming for years and it still has the best Weeping Tiger we’ve ever eaten!”. “Pity the Sunday buffet has gone”, though.
