Delicious local dining experiences
Being just a few short minutes away from the market town of Richmond, there’s no shortage of delicious dining options. Whether you’re looking for a riverside drink at a charming pub, a tasty snack at the farmers market or a three course meal at a sophisticated restaurant there’s a huge variety of international cuisine and local delights to satisfy anybody’s tastes. Here are some of our favourites.
Situated in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, between Leyburn and Hawes, the Wensleydale Heifer is well worth the 30 minute drive from Natural Retreats Yorkshire Dales. An absolute must for Sunday lunch, the award-winning restaurant has a focus on spectacular seafood, but you’ll also find mouth-watering roasts and delicious deserts. Follow your meal with a leisurely walk at Aysgarth Falls just down the road, for the perfect relaxing afternoon.
Shoulder Of Mutton
Nestled into the picturesque village of Middleton Tyas, this family-owned, 400 year old village pub is the perfect accompaniment to your natural retreat. A warm welcome awaits each and every guest, with tempting aromas of quality local cuisine and initimate corners that are perfect for cosy afternoons. Once you're well rested, take stock of the stunning surroundings and indulge in a pre-lunch stroll through the many footpaths that snake through the village.
Having won the 'Dining Pub Of The Year' award on three seperate occasions, we heartily recommend that you tantalise your tastebuds by tucking into the Blue Lion's expertly crafted gourmet dishes. Sip from their renowned selection of hand pulled, unique guest ales in front of a roaring log-fuelled fire and plan your next adventure in style.
