On the fringe of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, this 14th-century thatched gem sits in an idyllic village surrounded by wonderful walks. Although renowned as a foodie destination, the genuinely pubby bar is worth seeking out. Here both locals and visitors relax with well-kept pints of Two Chefs whilst awaiting the call to dine. Chef-patron Andrew Pern changes his dishes frequently according to seasonal availability. The autumn menu makes interesting reading. Start off with smoked tartare of Harome venison, egg yolk, juniper mayonnaise, house-cured jerky; or Hartlepool natural-smoked haddock ravioli with wholegrain mustard and leek; then dive into the mains. Butter-poached North Sea halibut with frogs' legs Kiev, roast hazelnut, parsnip, wood sorrel; or thyme-roasted fillet of Yorkshire beef with stout and oxtail pie, peppered swede purée, onion gravy and horseradish. Look out for specials and veggie choices.
