Find this excellent restaurant with rooms overlooking the village green. It was once a pub - indeed it looks like a picture postcard inn - and still has a little snug bar. The dining room, with its polished wooden floors and tables plus a blazing fire in winter, is typically old-fashioned British.
The food is some of the best of its type in the area - and worth a special trip, if you're lucky enough to procure a table - offering the likes of 'Lobster Ravioli with Fennel and Tomato Confit'; 'Potted Beef, Ham Hock and Foie Gras Terrine' or 'Ballottine of Pigeon with Quince and Celeriac Purée' among the starters.
Maybe 'Roast Veal Fillet with a Fricasee of Veal Sweetbreads', 'Saddle of Hare, and braised leg with Wild Mushrooms and Spinach & Rosemary Gnocchi'; 'Roast Sea Bass and Red Mullet with Parma Ham, Braised Lettuce, Fennel and Asparagus' or 'Nidderdale Lamb Pie' (made with faggots and braised shank).
As well as excellent desserts - such as 'Mango Boudin with Pineapple Tart and Passion Fruit Sorbet' and perhaps 'Strawberry Bavarois, Peach, Walnut, Thyme Panna Cotta'; ther's a good selection of British cheese and savouries - such as Devilled Lamb's Kidneys & Welsh Rabbit are also on offer.
