Simon Gueller In 2004 my partner Rena and I took over The Box Tree and moved our then young family to Yorkshire. We’re so proud to be based in Ilkley, a town surrounded by the Yorkshire Dales and host to a variety of excellent restaurants, cafés, bars and food shops. Restaurants in Yorkshire are lucky to have access to an abundance of local suppliers who take great pride in their wares – from award-winning cheesemakers, butchers and greengrocers to the Yorkshire triangle, which is famed for its rhubarb. All their dedication helps to provide endless gastronomic inspiration throughout the year, ensuring Yorkshire stays firmly on the culinary map and, on a personal level, enabling me to continue achieving excellence at The Box Tree. It’s not just suppliers and chefs like me who are passionate about local produce. The people of Yorkshire are ever-curious about the provenance of food they’re buying, and turn out in their droves to support local producers at annual events such as the Great Yorkshire Show, as well as at regular farmers’ markets across the county. There’s also a real enthusiasm among Yorkshire folk for eating out. This demand for top-quality restaurants has put The Box Tree in good company, with an assortment of exciting new restaurants and established eateries to choose from. Whether you’re in cosmopolitan cities like Sheffield and Leeds, or exploring the Yorkshire countryside, you’ll find that good food is never far away. Food has evolved a lot in recent years, and the plethora of food programmes on television has made diners more adventurous at home. Ingredients that were once only found in restaurants are now readily available in supermarkets, which is having an interesting impact on the industry, compelling modern chefs to push boundaries and be more creative. This year at The Box Tree we are really proud to have retained our Michelin star for the 14th year running, and we’re embarking on some refurbishment at the restaurant, which is always exciting and keeps us busy. In addition to all of that, our events and outside catering company, Box Tree Events, continues to go from strength to strength. In this year’s Yorkshire Food & Drink Guide you’re spoilt for choice with first-class cuisine to discover. I look forward to welcoming you and have no doubt that you’ll enjoy all that Yorkshire has to offer.

The Box Tree

Fine Dining

 Location 35-37 Church Street, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, LS29 9DR t: 0844 502 6982 w: www.theboxtree.co.uk e: info@theboxtree.co.uk This small and sumptuous restaurant has retained a Michelin star, three AA rosettes and countless well-respected recommendations for the last 14 years – and it comes as no surprise. The Box Tree has been putting Ilkley on Yorkshire’s culinary map since the ’60s, and now owners Simon and Rena Gueller are lovingly upholding its reputation for unforgettable dining. The building itself dates back to 1720 and was once home to a generation of gentleman farmers. Nowadays it’s the farmers’ wares that can be found inside, featured in outstanding contemporary French dishes. The Box Tree perfectly combines a sense of history and good taste with top-class modern dining. Take in the surroundings (the art and antiques, the style and luxury) while perusing the impressive menu and be prepared for a meal to remember. The seasonal four-course à la carte menu is excellent value. You might begin with truffled Norfolk quail breast and confit leg with a poached egg, sweetcorn and mushroom consommé, or Provençal fish soup comprising mullet, monkfish and mussels with rouille and Gruyère. Mains such as line-caught wild sea bass with sprouting broccoli, Pink Fir apple potatoes, roasted almonds and sauce Noilly, and fillet of Yorkshire beef with Jacob’s Ladder, oxtail Dauphine, Jerusalem artichoke and girolles confirm the chefs’ ability to turn quality ingredients into stunning dishes. Finish with an apricot soufflé with chocolate sauce. For something that extra bit special, opt for the menu gourmand, which offers six delectable courses from just £80 (to be taken by the whole table), or choose the menu du jour (from £50 for a four-course dinner, available Wednesday and Thursday evening, and from £40 for a three-course lunch, available Friday and Saturday) – a stage for produce at its seasonal best. Sunday lunch at The Box Tree shouldn’t be missed and represents fantastic value, priced from £40 for four courses. There’s an extensive wine list with varieties to match any and every dish. The list features a selection of half bottles too. The Box Tree restaurant is perfect for your next special occasion, or simply as a treat. Book a table in the snug, by the fire or perhaps in the private dining room, and allow the welcoming, professional front-of-house staff to spoil you while the chefs’ impressive creations wow you with every mouthful. For up-to-date menus and prices, please see their website. *Price represents the cost of a four-course dinner and a glass of house wine.

Yorkshire Guide 2018

Nestled in the gateway to the Dales overlooking the historic Bolton Abbey estate you’ll find The Devonshire Arms – a superb hotel offering exceptional hospitality and sumptuous food and drink, including one of the best afternoon teas in Yorkshire. At the hotel’s fine dining Burlington Restaurant, stylish interiors take inspiration from the surroundings, featuring oil paintings of brooding Yorkshire scenes in ornate gilt frames. From the moment we were ushered into the high-ceilinged cocktail lounge for canapés and aperitifs we knew we were in for a treat. We sampled the eight-course Taste of the Dales menu developed by head chef Paul Leonard (chef profile page 85). Each dish showcases an element of local produce – be it picked from the hotel’s walled kitchen gardens, reared on the Bolton Abbey estate or surrounding farms, or caught off the Yorkshire coast – paired with wine from the restaurant’s immense list, which is some 100 pages long. We started with an amuse-bouche of Whitby crab with turnip and sea herbs, followed by juicy creel-caught langoustines imaginatively served with pork cheek and celeriac, drizzled with chicken stock to complete a surprising combination of flavours. Paul’s passion for local produce was evident throughout our dining experience, not least in the next course where flavoursome heritage carrot from the kitchen garden was topped with eel and a sprinkling of spiced seeds and curds. The accompanying crisp Australian Riesling drew out the earthy elements of the dish beautifully. This was followed by freshly caught turbot draped beneath thin curls of black kale and dashed with soft mussels. Next came a hearty loin of rich Yorkshire venison complemented by a bold and luxurious Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The drama still had several acts to come, not least a selection of cheeses, each expertly described by a waiter whose knowledge and patter were an integral part of the dining experience. From the dizzying variety we were offered, we opted for the earthy Dale End from Whitby, the pungent Stichelton blue, creamy Baron Bigod Brie and – very best of all – the slightly sweet and fruity Beenleigh Roquefort. The stewed apples and Yorkshire skyr yoghurt that followed acted as a neat palate-cleanser before our evening concluded with delicate whipped sea buckthorn and strong coffees. *Price represents the cost of three courses from the à la carte menu.


Goldsborough Hall

Fine Dining

 Location Church Street, Goldsborough, North Yorkshire, HG5 8NR t: 0844 502 0023 w: www.goldsboroughhall.com e: info@goldsboroughhall.com

Tucked away in the quiet village of Goldsborough you’ll find historic Goldsborough Hall, a splendid venue with extensive grounds, and which was once a royal residence, home to Princess Mary, the Queen’s aunt.

Spectacular chandeliers, traditional furnishings and classic artwork create a sumptuous setting that’s immediately warm and welcoming. The library and drawing room provide relaxing seating areas, while the beautiful orangery overlooking the gardens is ideal for receptions as well as lunchtime dining. Service is impeccable, delivered by friendly, knowledgeable staff who introduce every dish and are on-hand to fulfil additional requests. Chef Adam is happy to accommodate individual dietary requirements, ensuring a wonderful experience for all. We sipped pre-dinner drinks in the wood-panelled library, where a crackling fire proved a cheering sight on a cold winter evening. Exquisite canapés started proceedings, which put us in the mood for the treats to follow. We nibbled warm bread, particularly enjoying the apricot and pecan variety. Our starters of wild mushroom risotto with Arlington egg yolk and kadaif nest, and Whitby crab with apple, celery and pecan were delicious. Flavour and texture tantalised as we munched in appreciative silence; the sharp lime, crunchy apple crisp and velvety smooth rice all delighted. My main course of spicy monkfish tail, onion bhaji and mussel mulligatawny was a revelation, while my partner’s choice of charcoal-cooked loin of venison, pumpkin loaf and game tea was mouth-wateringly good. We deliberated the dessert choices while savouring glasses of smooth merlot. My dessert of burnt cream, spiced plum and doughnut, and my partner’s almond cream, confit pear, pastry shards and pear sorbet looked almost too good to eat; sighs of contentment escaped as we finished every last morsel. Coffee and petits fours completed a truly memorable feast. Goldsborough Hall is the ideal venue for celebrations, including weddings. Open to non-residents for lunch, afternoon tea and evening dining, the elegant yet homely surroundings, attention to detail and high standard of personal service make any visit a special occasion. *Price range represents the cost of two to three courses from the à la carte menu.

‘...a destination to put at the top of your list...’ Cask ales from award-winning local brewery Small World Beers are well worth a try. The wine list is enticing and diverse, with some unexpected choices from the connoisseur list. I tried a beautiful Italian Barolo, which was simply divine. Dining from the à la carte menu, I chose the beautifully presented beetroot and goat’s cheese salad with pickled and candied golden and red beetroot, goat’s cheese and an orange dressing. This was followed by the chef’s daily special of the intriguing lamb and mutton pie with braised red cabbage. For dessert, I simply had to plump for the sticky toffee pudding with warm toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream, and I’m glad that I did. My partner chose The Woodman’s pork, ham hock and black pudding terrine, served with fig and pear chutney and toasted sourdough to start. The Waterford Farm salt-aged rib-eye steak was cooked perfectly and was served with triple-cooked chips, vine tomatoes and caramelised shallots. The quality of the meat was evident in its rich flavour. All of the dishes were tasty and immaculately presented, and we were pleased we didn’t skip dessert, despite the generous portions. The white chocolate parfait coated in raspberry crisps and fresh seasonal fruit was surprisingly light – the perfect way to conclude a truly delightful meal. With a total of 19 luxurious guest rooms and cottages now available, The Woodman Inn upholds the traditions of a country inn while fulfilling all of your modern creature comforts, making it a destination to put at the top of your list.

The friendly, professional staff brought us a miniature loaf of warm bread served with whipped garlic butter to begin, followed by our starters of chicken liver parfait with pear chutney and the baked Camembert served with warm garlic and rosemary focaccia. My main of slow-braised lamb shank with minted mash, vegetables and root vegetable gravy was delicious, and my partner’s sublimely tender topside of roast beef with a Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings was just as accomplished and hearty. We spotted an early evening midweek offer of two courses priced from just £15, which I’ll definitely try on our next visit.

We were certainly well satiated after the first two courses, but couldn’t resist sharing a dessert from the mouth-watering list. We chose the fantastic lemon and raspberry Baked Alaska from a range of classics that also boasted sticky toffee pudding, crème brûlée, fruit crumble and chocolate brownie – you mustn’t leave without sampling something sweet.

If you fancy something larger, the chef’s Italian-style chargrilled meatballs are a good shout, but, equally, the fillet of salmon with spinach and honey-roasted butternut squash and red onion, or one of the premium-quality British beef steaks that have been hung for 28 days, are fine choices too.

You’ll find 4 Kitchens in the Moors Shopping Centre in the heart of Ilkley, within easy reach of Skipton, Keighley, Harrogate and Bradford. Its location may be within Yorkshire’s beautiful countryside, but its unique offering is firmly rooted in the traditions of four prominent Indian states: Rajasthan, Delhi, Goa and Maharashtra. Three-time winner at the National Curry Awards, 4 Kitchens’ head chef Sunil Kumar Sinha masterfully draws upon the distinct flavours from the four states in order to create an outstanding menu.

£15 to

£20

Keen to dispel the myth that authentic Indian food is heavy and fattening, Sunil prides himself on serving healthy food that isn’t packed with ghee, cream or oil. According to Sunil, Indian food should be incredibly wholesome, and he’s keen to point out the health benefits that many key spices have, noting that they’re great at stimulating the body’s metabolism.

‘...three-time winner at the National Curry Awards...’ The menu is divided into sections based on the region that inspired each dish, with an extensive range of meat, seafood and veggie dishes. From Delhi, classics such as butter chicken, chicken jalfrezi and lamb rogan josh are cooked to perfection and packed with flavour. Rajasthani dishes fit for royalty are another speciality of Sunil’s, so it’s no wonder he was selected to cook for the Prime Minister of India – an honour that he is really proud of. Fresh and flavoursome seafood dishes from Goa include the award-winning Konkani prawn curry with coconut, tamarind, mustard and curry leaves. From Maharashtra we would recommend the lamb dhansak – a speciality of the Parsee community in Mumbai. To echo the diet of many inhabitants of rural India, much of the menu is vegetarian and vegan. Gluten-free dishes are also available and the team is happy to cater for dietary requirements. When it comes to service, 4 Kitchens is second to none, with staff members always putting guests first in order to ensure that everyone is served with a smile. It’s clear that nothing is too much trouble for the team at this charming independent, family-run restaurant.

Having previously worked in a Michelin-starred restaurant, Thomas is no stranger to the pressure of a full restaurant and really enjoys the buzz of leaving customers satisfied, no matter how busy the service.
