MrsSRD and I are off to the North York Moors for a week and wondered if anyone had any experience of eating and shopping in that part of the world.

Not personally, but I have friends who live in Farnhill. If that's the same area you're visiting, I could ask them for recommendations. The husband knows his real ales!

Thanks, but Farnhill is well to the West of where we'll be.

Ah. I looked it up on the map but wasn't sure whether it qualified. I have always whizzed right through Yorkshire & don't have a good sense of the geography there.

Some old posters were big fans of The Star at Harome. Michelin starred so not cheap but the menu does look good.

Thanks, it looks a little posh for us to take our 8 year old grand-daughter to, but we might make it on our own, if it isn't booked solid, it's bank holiday week.

15 years ago there was decent (non-michelin) food at the mallyan spout.
It is however in tvs heartbeat country which may mean the food is now pastiche 1960's pub food.

We recently ate at 3 places in Yorkshire.

Star Inn in the City, York

Skosh, York and

1884 Dock Street Kitchen, Hull.

 

We liked the Star Inn in the City but can't compare it with the Star Inn at Harome since we couldn't get a booking there. We had a walk in on a Wednesday night. It is pleasantly located on the city boundary overlooking the river. The menu is here http://www.starinnth...city_grubup.htm

The posh prawn cocktail was large, fresh and very enjoyable, he the had Pressed ‘Leven Farm’ Confit Duck Terrine, Blood Orange & Baked Ginger Parkin, Yorkshire Rhubarb and Spices. For mains we had: Mutton Pie and Pork Chops from the specials list. Both delicious and huge.  We share a Yorkshire Rhubarb & Custard Baked Alaska, Rhubarb Ripple Ice Cream.

 

Skosh had been recommended by locals and a Guardian review.

 It was within the city boundary on Micklegate and well worth a visit to share as many small plates as could be eaten from the menu.

 

Why Hull? Well it is the UK City of Culture 2017, home of William Wilberforce slave abolitionist and 1884 Dock Street Kitchen was the only restaurant to feature in the Good Food Guide. http://www.1884docks...tkitchen.co.uk/ It does a good fixed price lunch with a massive Chicken Kiev with wild Garlick and Hake. We had cheese from an old fashioned cheese trolley some local and some from further afield in the UK.

 

None of these were Michelin starred but all were fairly reasonable with a high level of cooking.

Suzanne, Hi!  Lowish key these days in not so sunny Glasgow.  Sometimes rugby beckons and we took 2 weeks to go see a match our neighbour did in 2 days :D   Saw the lovely Yin for lunch on Monday!
