Foreword

Rob Harrison Growing up in Hull, I always loved the food produced and reared in the beautiful countryside of Yorkshire, especially the game. Yorkshire’s renowned for its farmed produce, with succulent lamb and rich Wensleydale cheese offering a first taste to many across the country. As a county, we continue to show an interest in the provenance of our food. This is evident on the menus of our thriving pubs and restaurants, as well as in farm shops and pantries across the region. It’s important to make the most of local suppliers and put money back into the local area. As head chef of The Devonshire Fell, I source cheese from The Courtyard Dairy and meat from R&J Butchers. At The Devonshire Fell, we also love to forage wild garlic, which is abundant here. If you’re unsure about what’s safe to eat, there are several companies that can forage for you, using their expertise to serve you a range of local delights. The food industry in Yorkshire is faced with its own challenges, including environmental factors such as flooding, while restaurants are tasked with staffing issues due to the long, unsociable hours, among other factors. Despite this, we benefit from a wealth of wonderful produce and some truly exceptional eateries, a number of which are now offering shorter working hours in response. There are several thriving restaurants in this area, including the likes of The Burlington at The Devonshire Arms on the Bolton Abbey Estate and The Angel at Hetton. Neil Bentink of Skosh is a notable chef who continues to wow his guests in York. It’s undoubtedly an exciting time to be eating out in Yorkshire and I recommend that you take the time to sample all it has to offer. From traditional eateries to Michelin-accredited establishments, there’s something for everyone. I’d go as far as to say that Yorkshire’s dining scene is on par with London’s – it’s just a little more spread out. And on that note, I hope you enjoy reading this year’s Yorkshire Food & Drink Guide and make the most of the dining scene on your doorstep.

 Location Burnsall, Nr. Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 6BT t: 0844 502 2132 w: www.devonshirefell.co.uk e: enquiries@thedevonshirefell.co.uk

A picturesque five-mile jaunt north of Bolton Abbey, The Devonshire Fell sits overlooking the village of Burnsall. With views of the fells and the River Wharfe, a table in the light and airy conservatory is the perfect spot to enjoy the scenery during the summer months. On arrival, we received a warm and friendly welcome from the staff. To start, the succulent salted cod fritter and venison sausage roll appetisers set the standard for the top-quality food and attentive service we received throughout.

‘...a beautiful backdrop for wedding celebrations...’

The Devonshire Fell boasts a varied and sophisticated menu, which places an emphasis on game and highlights fresh seasonal produce. To start, I chose the heritage beetroot salad with roasted beetroot, purée and crisps. This was accompanied by an olive tuile filled with goat’s cheese. It was refreshing to see everyday ingredients transformed into something so deliciously innovative. My partner chose potted rabbit, which was tender, wholesome and beautifully seasoned. This was paired with a choice of sea salt white bread and wholemeal walnut loaf, both of which were fresh and flavoursome. A delicious wild mushroom butter, whipped to a light and delicate consistency, was the perfect accompaniment. The chef prepares a different flavour of butter every day, including the likes of smoked bacon, tomato and beetroot, which proves to be a current favourite. For mains, we chose venison loin with braised haunch and partridge, which was offered on or off the bone. Both were rich, tender and cooked to our liking. The smooth dark merlot we opted for complemented our meals perfectly and enhanced our dining experience. The dessert menu showcases a delectable range of sweet treats; from traditional classics to modern inventions, there’s something for everyone. We chose the pear and frangipane tart and the salted caramel parfait, which were both of equal standard and the perfect end to an exceptional meal. The Devonshire Fell can also be hired for corporate events and makes a beautiful backdrop for wedding celebrations. *Price represents the cost of a two-course evening meal.

Consistent food and excellent service is high on the agenda here, as the dedicated staff aim to make guests’ £23 to visits memorable for all the right reasons. It’s no surprise that the Waterside £30 recently won Best Restaurant in Bradford at the British Restaurant Awards, as well as being a Good Food award winner in 2019 and 2020. Innovative, high-quality dishes arrive from the kitchen, where head chef and co-owner Paul (chef profile page 86) brings his experience of working in Michelin-starred kitchens to Shipley. It therefore comes as no surprise that the menus keep up with the seasons and feature tip-top produce. Keen to cater for everyone, the chef provides vegan and vegetarian options too. See Open: Tues-Sat 11.30am-3pm, his talent demonstrated in starters such as whipped Yorkshire goat’s curd, 5pm-9pm (last sitting) beetroot purée and walnut dressing, and the comforting Yorkshire Brie and chive hash brown with homemade baked beans. The high standard continues in the main dishes – take the roasted halibut accompanied by celeriac purée, sautéed potatoes, crab lollipop and fish velouté, or choose the renowned Yorkshire 72-day-aged steak in Himalayan salt. A delicious dark chocolate and raspberry tart paired with raspberry sorbet provides a spectacular finish to a meal, as does the cheeseboard. To drink, why not opt for a Yorkshire white wine from Laurel Vines? The dining room can be hired for private functions and there’s a self-contained, covered courtyard that’s ideal for al fresco dining. Modern British

Pre-dinner drinks were offered in a choice of lounges, where a charming yet relaxed sommelier was on-hand to offer his expert knowledge on the impressive wine list, which includes vintages dating back to 1928. We chose an unusual Mourvedre that had good length and just enough tannins to balance the fruit. An eight-course tasting menu or three-course à la carte is available; we chose the latter – a tasting menu in itself. Beforehand, we enjoyed a wonderful selection of appetisers including a wafer-thin cracker topped with textures of swede, Japanese seaweed wrap and feather-light dumplings filled with Gruyère and topped with sesame. Next, we opted for an amuse-bouche of roe deer with Alsace rose jelly that was tender and sweet, with a touch of spice. We sampled a starter of poached rabbit, chorizo, Jerusalem artichoke and girolles. Every ingredient experimented with texture, including purée, crisp, jelly and foam, and the dishes were a testament to the talent of the head chef and his team.

The presentation was skilful and every mouthful was delicious. My main course showcased meaty John Dory with soft Cornish mussels and seaweed sweetened by caramelised onion. My partner chose an imaginative suckling pig dish. Next, the pre-dessert of pineapple and coconut ice cream with burnt sugar and a hint of coriander was wonderfully refreshing and cleansed the palate perfectly. Desserts were equally pleasing – the deconstructed Double Decker was irresistible, while the spiced quince dish with chocolate, walnut and whiskey tart featured flavour combinations that worked perfectly. Ending the evening in the quiet, relaxing lounge, we enjoyed coffee and petits fours, before leaving the blazing fire to head home. *Price represents the cost of three courses from the à la carte menu.

Drake’s is a firm favourite that’s loved by locals and visitors alike. Situated in Low Petergate in central York, this restaurant offers ample seating and is fully licensed. We paid a visit on Monday evening and the restaurant was buzzing with an eclectic mix of locals and tourists. The decor is deliberately traditional, reinforcing the historical significance of a fish and chip restaurant sited on the same spot for over 100 years. However, there’s much more on offer than just fish and chips at this wonderful institution. There’s a surprisingly versatile menu that features an extensive selection of starters, mains and desserts. To start, I was torn between the calamari rings and the pumpkin and orange zest soup, but I finally plumped for the chicken bites with garlic mayonnaise. My dining partner chose the delicious prawn cocktail. Despite the temptation of the famous Shambles butcher’s sausage, I felt it only right to follow with traditional haddock and chips. I must confess, this isn’t my first tasting of this dish as I’ve had many Drake’s takeaway dinners over the years and I’ve never been disappointed. The fish is tender and flavoursome, while the batter is crispy, complemented by chunky chips made from local Yorkshire potatoes. My wife chose the scampi with a salad garnish and judging by the audible sighs of satisfaction, she clearly enjoyed it. Desserts included a delicious banana fritter and syrup sponge but we decided to share a moreish warm chocolate brownie served with a scoop of ice cream. A specials board and a dedicated menu for children and senior citizens complete the food offering.

Chef Profile

Paul Huddleston – Waterside – Pg 4 Paul Huddleston got into the fast-paced industry of cheffing through his mum. When the education system didn’t work for him, Paul turned to kitchens, drawn in by the swearing, flames and sense of humour that he found in restaurant kitchens. Having worked in award-winning establishments including Michelin-star-awarded Restaurant Le Jules Verne at the Eiffel Tower in Paris and Marco Pierre White’s restaurant at the Criterion, Paul has earned a fantastic reputation for his classical French cooking, which is enhanced by modern techniques and stunning presentation.

‘...classical French cooking...’

Championing local ingredients, Paul makes use of the produce that’s available on his doorstep and has great relationships with the best Yorkshire suppliers. Having been nominated as Chef of the Year in the 2020 Oliver Awards from the Yorkshire Evening Post, Paul is excited to see what the future holds for his team at Waterside. Chef Profile

Gareth Bartram – Winteringham Fields – Pg 16 Growing up, Gareth Bartram loved cooking with his mum and it came as no surprise to her when he said he wanted to be a chef. He started his career working in the local butcher’s shop and went on to study cookery at Grimsby college, before working for Gordon Ramsay at The Boxwood Café. Now head chef at the multi-award-winning Winteringham Fields, Gareth loves to work on the meat section and show off his technical prowess. However, it’s as part of a team that Gareth truly thrives and this considered approach, along with the first-class cuisine, earned Winteringham Fields its well-deserved Michelin star.

‘...passionate about all things food...’

Based in North Lincolnshire, Gareth loves to use an abundance of local produce, with seasonal vegetables often featuring on the menu, including root vegetables, game, shellfish and black winter truffle during the colder months. Gareth believes that chefs need to be driven, motivated and passionate about all things food.
