Food and drink

Nidderdale AONB’s farming landscape makes it the perfect place for delicious fresh Yorkshire produce. Local shops, pubs and restaurants take great pride in serving high quality locally produce food. Nidderdale grass fed lamb, grouse from the moors, locally brewed beer and delicious dairy ice cream are just a few specialities not to be missed.

Try some local ice cream at Brymor ice cream, at Jervaulx near Masham; Birchfield Farm in Summerbridge; Meadowdale, high up in Nidderdale at Lofthouse or at G&T’s in Risplith, near Ripon.

For local preserves, look out for Rosebud Preserves from Healey near Masham, and if you’re partial to a good pint Masham is the place to go with its two breweries - Theakstons and Black Sheep.
