Blue Lion East Witton

East Witton, Leyburn, North Yorkshire, DL8 4SN
This old coaching inn, originally built towards the end of the 18th century, has been sympathetically renovated, retaining its flagstone floors and old beams.

Although still a local, food, served in the bar and in the more formal candlelit restaurant is now the raison d’etre. The menu is based as much as possible on local produce, so expect the likes of ‘Whitby Crab and Beetroot Salad with Curried Lemon Dressing’; ‘Blue Wensleydale and Onion Tart with Tomato Chutney’ and ‘Salad of Black Pudding with Smoked Bacon  and Shallots, topped with  Poached Egg’ among the starters.

Perhaps to be followed by ‘Beef and Onion Suet Pudding with a Dark Onion Gravy’; ‘Chicken Kiev, wrapped in Parma Ham’; ‘Char-Grilled Fillet of Beef with a Shiraz Sauce, Shallots, Lardons and Mushrooms’ or ‘Poached Fillet of Smoked Haddock on a Bed of New Potatoes with a Leek and Mushroom Sauce and Grilled Gruyere.

If you have room, maybe finish with ‘Tarte Tatin of Pineapple with Home-Made Pineapple Sorbet’ or ‘Apple and Rhubarb Crumble’
