Yorkshire's Michelin-starred restaurants

I know we’ve bragged about this in the past, but it’s such a great stat that we just have to say it again. Yorkshire has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other county in England outside of London.

In the 2014 Michelin Guide, five top Yorkshire restaurants made the cut. So if you’re on holiday north of the capital and are hankering for some fine dining Yorkshire-style, then make your way to any one of these fine establishments.

Yorkshire’s Michelin-starred restaurants

The Box Tree, Ilkley

The Box Tree Ilkley - one of Yorkshire's Michelin Starred Restaurants

Something of a Yorkshire institution now, The Box Tree in Ilkley has been serving world class food since way back in the 1960s. Run by husband and wife team Simon and Rena Gueller, it continues to provide a modern French classical menu and a very impressive wine list. And with its setting in the beautiful Victorian town of Ilkley, it’s worth staying around a few days…

The Yorke Arms, Ramsgill

The Yorke Arms Ramsgill - one of Yorkshire's Michelin Starred Restaurants

Set on a picturesque village green in Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Yorke Arms has retained its Michelin star from 2003. Led by Frances Atkins, one of only six female Michelin-starred chefs in the UK, it has a host of other noteworthy awards and accolades to its name. Most recently it was ranked 3rd in The Times top 100 UK restaurants. The menu is a timeless classic affair making good use of the bountiful local organic produce in the Dales.

The Black Swan, Oldstead

An insane 8-course tasting menu full of amazing flavours and super interesting textures made using ingredients foraged from the land surrounding the restaurant πŸ½πŸ‘πŸŒΏπŸ‘¨πŸ»‍🌾🍷. Absolute highlights were the famous Crapaudine beetroot cooked in beef fat (very smoky, salty and meaty!), the root vegetable toast soaked in rum and served with clotted cream, the salt aged lamb cooked three ways and the desert of sheeps milk with Douglas Fir oil sherbert.πŸ πŸƒπŸ¨ @tommybanks really is a genius and his restaurant @blackswan_oldstead makes for such a great experience. πŸ‘πŸ» With many of the dishes cooked in @lecreusetuk cookware, we got to learn loads about the new Nature Kitchen collection too which is a real beauty.

Heading east to the North York Moors National Park and the wonderful Black Swan at Oldstead… Something of a rising star, the restaurant is becoming known as one of the top places to dine in the North. And if you’re planning on making a holiday of your visit, there are countless Yorkshire attractions and beautiful places to visit nearby including the picture-postcard market town of Helmsley.

The Pipe and Glass, Dalton

The Pipe and Glass Dalton

Once thought of as a bit of a culinary desert, East Yorkshire has seen something of a renaissance in recent years, with The Pipe and Glass in Dalton leading the way. Standing on the site of the original Gatehouse of Dalton Park, this excellent gastropub-cum-restaurant is well worth striking out for. The interior has a rustic but refined look and it provides a comfortable backdrop to what is very fine dining indeed.

The Old Vicarage, Sheffield

The Michelin Starred Old Vicarage Sheffield

Down to South Yorkshire and The Old Vicarage in Sheffield. Having received critical acclaim for over 25 years, they have retained the coveted Michelin Star since 1998. The restaurant is set in an impressive Victorian house surrounded by several acres of beautiful gardens, around 10 miles from Sheffield centre. The menu is a seasonal celebration of the finest local produce. 


So if you’ve ever considered a Michelin-starred foodie break to Yorkshire, start planning your route now. North, south, east and west, there is a Michelin-starred Yorkshire restaurant waiting for you!
