Did highwayman Dick Turpin rest here en route to the gallows in York? Possibly. More certain is that in 1835 a young Queen Victoria stayed here when visiting that city. If you're dining, starters might include scorched mackerel fillet, gin, cucumber, horseradish, celeriac; warm Bury black pudding salad; and Yorkshire pea velouté. Moving on to mains you may find seasonal fish and seafood pie; pan-fried monkfish tail with curried spiced Puy lentils; and seared lamb loin. Finish with a slate of Lancashire, Yorkshire and European cheeses.
