Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink

Local delicacies

Holidays are made for taking a break and letting someone else do the cooking (and the washing up!). So imagine yourself in a traditional Dales pub, sampling the locally brewed ale and tucking into some of the freshest produce money can buy. The Kilnsey trout and Limestone beef are rare treats not to be missed – and both are farmed in a way that’s sympathetic to the beautiful countryside.

Home grown flavour

It’s worth making a special trip to the tearooms, pubs and restaurants that specialise in cooking dishes using locally sourced Yorkshire Dales ingredients. And it doesn’t have to stop here because there’s a wealth of farm shops and farmers’ markets that mean you can take a taste of Yorkshire home – spoil yourself with delicious pies, puddings and cakes.

“Like no cheese I’ve ever tasted”

Wallace and Gromit fans will know how much they like ‘real’ Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese and you can pick yours up in Hawes from the actual creamery where it is made. Take a tour of the creamery and enjoy some cheese tasting, or watch from the viewing gallery before visiting the museum, shop and restaurant.

The height of good taste

Tan Hill Inn is a very special place high in the Yorkshire Dales. It is, in fact, the highest pub in Great Britain at 1,732ft above sea level. Here you will receive one of the warmest and friendliest welcomes that you could ever wish to find.
