The Star Inn, Harome

Look no further than the Star Inn in Harome for a fine dining delight. Now back to its very best having regained their Michelin Star. We recently ate there and it was, without a doubt, one of the finest meals all four of us had ever eaten. The quirky menu, the old pub bar, exemplary service and finest ingredients create a special occasion. Allow around £100.00 a head and you’ll be in gourmet heaven with a local accent on each dish.

For those on a smaller budget, eat the market menu in the bar, you can’t book so you just have to hope your lucky enough to get a table!

Situated in the sleepy North Yorkshire village of Wombleton, only a few miles from the market towns of Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside, The Plough has a proud tradition of serving fine ales to its customers since the 15th Century when monks brewed and dispensed to weary travellers.

The Royal Oak, Nunnington

Following on the pub theme, they don’t come much better than the Royal Oak here in the village. A proper English pub with a slightly Italian theme! the owners spent 15 years in France and Italy, working with Alaistair Sawday to provide great guides. They’ve bought a lot of what they learned home with them and turned a dying pub into the heart of the village once again. They import much of the Italian produce and have a dynamic wine list that punches way above it’s weight. We recommend the anti-pasta and pretty much everything else!


Scotts, Helmsley

Another of the Small Business Saturday winners and recent recipient of Marine Stewardship Council’s (MSC) Fisheries Standard, one of only 47 businesses to carry this accolade. They have also won a series of awards and positively have gained a reputation for Gluten Free fish and chips. There’s a restaurant too for those who prefer to dine with modern amenities. We like to get take-away and watch the masses in the Market Square!

The Grapes, Slingsby

The Grapes Inn is a classic North Yorkshire village pub, with a warm welcome, a friendly atmosphere, real ale and home cooked food. The Grapes Inn is a Grade II listed building with a great history. The deeds go back as far as 1749, with an entry referring to a ‘cottage house or tenement with a brew house’. It appears that the present building was probably built or re-built in its present form shortly after that.

Featured in The Yorkshire Post’s ‘Pub of the Week in June 2013, the Post noted ‘You know when you walk into a place and every sense screams that you’ve stumbled across a classic in the making? Well that’s the Grapes Inn, Slingsby.’

Combining a memorable dining experience with the ambience of a traditional English pub, the Grapes also features Theakstons, Black Sheep, Copper Dragon and Timothy Taylor’s Landlord on tap in the cosy, welcoming bar. A short and simple menu includes smoked haddock and spinach, home-made burger and chips, and the meltingly tender steak and ale pie.
