Back open after a year closed due to a devastating fire, it’s business as usual at this thatched 14th-century country inn in the pretty moorland village of Harome. They have used the opportunity to update the bar area a little, create a more comfortable restaurant and generally made it feel less pubby, whilst retaining all the original charm with its low ceilings and roaring fires. The refined modern food still offers big, rugged flavours backed by a friendly welcome. Start with a pressing of confit Yorkshire-reared chicken with its own parfait, bitter herbs, black garlic and roast hay ice-cream. It might be followed by cumin-rubbed North Sea monkfish with lemon pickle cake, parsnip root dabs, pak choi, Shetland mussels, mouclade and lemon verbena oil. Leave room for the Yorkshire rum-soaked savarin with poached Yorkshire rhubarb, Pontefract cake ice cream, candied ginger and ‘hundreds and thousands’.

About the area

Discover North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire, with its two National Parks and two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is England’s largest county and one of the most rural. This is prime walking country, from the heather-clad heights of the North York Moors to the limestone country that is so typical of the Yorkshire Dales – a place of contrasts and discoveries, of history and legend.

The coastline offers its own treasures, from the fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood Bay to Scarborough, one time Regency spa and Victorian bathing resort. In the 1890s, the quaint but bustling town of Whitby provided inspiration for Bram Stoker, who set much of his novel, Dracula, in the town. Wizarding enthusiasts head to the village of Goathland, which is the setting for the Hogwarts Express stop at Hogsmeade station in the Harry Potter films.

York is a city of immense historical significance. It was capital of the British province under the Romans in AD 71, a Viking settlement in the 10th century, and in the Middle Ages its prosperity depended on the wool trade. Its city walls date from the 14th century and are among the finest in Europe. However, the gothic Minster, built between 1220 and 1470, is York’s crowning glory.
