- The Black Swan – Michelin Star
- The Hare Inn – fine dining
- The White Swan Inn – traditional
The Black Swan
You might be surprised to hear of a Michelin Star restaurant sitting pretty in the North York Moors. That’s not surprising though, since it’s the only restaurant in Yorkshire to be given the critically acclaimed award as well as 4 AA Rosettes. Tucked away in the small village of Oldstead, the owners grow their own fruit, vegetables and herbs in their garden and while you’d expect fine dining from a Michelin Star restaurant, they market themselves with a very relaxed and open-fire dining experience.
The Hare Inn
The Hare Inn is a 13th Century Inn in Scawton and for two years in a row has been awarded the “Restaurant of the Year” by Welcome to Yorkshire. This is very much a ‘fine dining’ restaurant, so don’t turn up expecting a typical English pub menu. Prices are still affordable and there is a tasting menu on offer with their meat and fish sourced locally.
The White Swan Inn
This inn epitomises the traditional coaching inn experience, with comfy sofas and open fires. They want nothing more from you than to put your feet up, relax and enjoy their hospitality. Located in the market town of Pickering, the menu is affordable and is to be expected with the added bonus of a steak and fish and chip night!
The are dozens of places to eat on the North York Moors all with a little piece of Yorkshire heritage to take home with you.
