In recent years Yorkshire has become a must-visit destination for foodies. With lots of locally grown ingredients, artisan producers and fabulous food markets (such as Malton), there’s something to tantalise the most discerning taste buds.
What’s more there are now five Michelin star restaurants in Yorkshire to visit (plus a bonus sixth that’s just outside). Go on – why not plan your next short break to Yorkshire around food…
Take a look at Yorkshire’s Michelin Star restaurants:
#01 The Yorke Arms, Nidderdale
This historic 18th century coaching house was transformed in one of Yorkshire’s Michelin Starred restaurant by the very talented Frances Atkins – one of the few Michelin Starred chefs in the country. The Yorke Arms was first awarded a star in 2003 and it has retained one ever since.
It’s nestled in beautiful Nidderdale countryside in the picturesque village of Ramsgill which is just five miles from Pateley Bridge.
#02 The Pipe and Glass, Beverley
Located near Beverley in the Yorkshire Wolds, The Pipe and Glass serves everything from a sandwich to a Michelin quality fine-dining meal. This family run coaching inn has held the prestigious star since 2010 and we think it’s everything you could want from a Yorkshire country inn! Chef (and owner) James Mackenzie can even give you a private cooking demonstration for an extra special treat.
#03 The Black Swan at Oldstead
The Black Swan at Oldstead made quite a name for itself when it was named ‘The World’s Best Restaurant’ by TripAdvisor. This North York Moors restaurant also happens to be run by one of the top chef’s of the moment – Tommy Banks! Many of the ingredients used in the tasting menu are grown on the family farm in Oldstead so it’s truly farm to fork.
Tommy Banks has also just opened Roots in York so will this also become one of Yorkshire’s Michelin Starred restaurants? Watch this space!
#04 The Star Inn at Harome
The historic Star Inn at Harome (believed to date back to 14th century) has wonky walls, a thatched roof and low beams. It has has a Michelin star thanks to it’s owner – renowned Yorkshire chef, Andrew Pern. It’s up to you whether you sample the seasonal tasting menu or go A La Carte.
#05 The Man Behind the Curtain, Leeds
Yorkshire’s latest Michelin star restaurant is The Man Behind the Curtain in Leeds. At the helm is flamboyant chef Michael O’Hare so expect some unusual food combinations and theatrical presentation.
#06 The Raby Hunt, Darlington
OK so we know this is actually just outside of Yorkshire, but we have to give a special mention to The Raby Hunt – especially as it has held two Michelin stars since 2016. It’s set in the small village of Summerhouse (not far at all from the Northern Tip of the Dales) and is headed up by innovative (and self taught) chef, James Close.
