The ivy-clad Sandpiper may only have been a pub for 30 years or so, but it’s Leyburn’s oldest building, dating to the 17th century. The bar and snug offer real ales from a small army of Yorkshire breweries, and some 100 single malts. The restaurant, distinguished by a huge stone lintel above an open fireplace, oak floors and candlelit tables, has an excellent reputation for modern British food. Such reputations require the finest ingredients, found in both traditional and international dishes such as pigeon with spinach risotto; and grilled red mullet with lobster and tiger prawn tagliatelle. For dessert, try one of the Sandpiper’s own ice creams or sorbets.
