Almost slicing the country in two and settled between Sheffield and Manchester, Yorkshire is fortunate to claim ownership of part of the Peak District and lo and behold, this part of the country features some very fine eateries. Here are a just a few that are worthy of making a stop at:
- Tilly’s of Castleton
- The No Car Café
- The Plough Inn
Tilly’s of Castleton
Ok, so Tilly’s cheats the criteria somewhat, since it’s not a restaurant or a pub but a tea room – arguably, though, you could still fill your belly with their wide range of food available, whether it’s breakfast or lunch that you’re looking for. Situated in the extremely popular Castleton, it’s easily accessible from the major settlements outside of the Peaks and is ideally located for a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake if you’re out on a walk.
The No Car Café
Completely inaccessible by car, this seems to be a popular destination for walkers and cyclists alike, nestled atop the Dark Peak (near Rushup). There’s nothing major to this quaint little café, apart from somewhere to warm by the wood burner and get fuel into you before you carry on your adventure.
The Plough Inn
Sitting right on the outskirts of the Peak District National Park in Yorkshire, the small village of Lower Bradfield, with stunning views over Sheffield, hosts The Plough Inn – complete with a traditional pub vibe, real ales and wholesome home-cooked food. There’s nothing overly fancy on the menu here but what you will get is that safe and warm pub feeling and with its location, whether you’re heading out to the Peaks or coming back, it’s a good place for a rest stop.
The Peak District is an excellent walking location in Yorkshire and there’s a myriad of places to eat and drink around the many peaks and small villages. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere that doesn’t serve good food to suit your needs.
