Recommended places to eat in Pickering

Pickering is a market town in the North York Moors

The Black Swan Coaching Inn

This traditional 18th century Pickering coaching Inn offers everything from small plates to hearty classics! They also do Sunday Lunch with all the trimmings – especially good when enjoyed by the roaring log fire!

Willowgate Bistro

You’ll find regularly changing menus showcasing seasonal Yorkshire produce in this bistro (that has been top-rated by Trip Advisor). A great option for dinner with drinks.


You’ll find lots of fresh produce along with cakes, sandwiches, tea and coffee at this great little deli in Pickering. A perfect choice for a tasty lunch!

Capplemans Fish and Chips

Now Pickering isn’t too far from the Yorkshire Coast so it’s no wonder that you can get a mean fish and chips in the town. It’s up to you if you eat inside or find a spot to watch the world go by.


If you are in the mood for Indian food, Cilanto is the place to go in Pickering. You’ll find all the classics along with some more adventurous dishes. They also do takeaway if you fancy chilling in your holiday cottage with a few beers!

The Weathervane at the Feversham Arms

The Feversham Arms has a prime location in Helmsley and along with their gourmet restaurant, The Weathervane, there’s a top class spa where you could enjoy a treatment to make a real day of it. We love the fact in the summer you can eat al fresco by the pool!

The Black Swan Tea Rooms

There’s no mistaking this historic building next to Helmsley’s market square. There’s a great restaurant where you can enjoy meals throughout the day but we are rather partial to Afternoon Tea served in their elegant and traditional tea room.
