North York Moors - Food and Drink
With one Michelin-starred restaurant within it – the Black Swan at Oldstead - and another on the very edge of its southern boundary – The Star at Harome – the North York Moors National Park isn’t lacking in foodie credentials. But the Park isn’t just about high end awards – it’s about fish and chips on a windswept beach, patisserie by the sea, cream teas with luscious cakes in a farmhouse perched high above an historic dale, award-winning dairy ice cream in a deliciously pretty market town… whatever your food favourite, you’ll find it here.
And if you’re a keen home cook, you’ll find excellent butchers, bakers and grocers right across the region, with lots of specialist shops, farm stalls and producers to entice you. The Park also boasts at least one deli which is regularly chosen by experts as one of the best in the country – Hunter’s of Helmsley.
