Eating out in Yorkshire

Whether it is for a celebration or an alternative to cooking, eating out is always a popular option. As Yorkshire food is some of the best on offer, many people from this region and its visitors decide to dine at local pubs – but what is it about the Yorkshire pub that makes it so appealing to so many people?


There are pubs across the whole of Yorkshire that offer a fantastic experience to guests. From Skipton in North Yorkshire to Keighley in West Yorkshire, pubs are offering great food, drink and a friendly and vibrant atmosphere. Many of them even find themselves in picturesque locations that typify the county’s rural appeal, located down country lanes, looking over the moors or quiet cobbled towns.


Yorkshire pub lunches tend to be made from produce and ingredients that are sourced from local farms, meaning that all food – whether it’s meat such as chicken or duck, or other farm-based produce, such as cheese – is fresh and of a high quality.

Many of these pubs utilise home-made foods, while some even have their own product ranges available for guests to buy, so they can take the great taste of Yorkshire pub lunches home with them; this normally includes jams and chutneys.

Pub lunches are often preferred over fine dining in the Yorkshire region, due to the value for money, tasty food and friendly, relaxed atmosphere on offer. This is complemented by idyllic locations that convince those wanting to eat out to choose pub food.
