Eating (&drinking) Out in North Yorkshire

There is a great choice of places to eat and drink in North Yorkshire, from cafes and gastro-pubs to Michelin starred restaurants. We don’t provide evening meals so we have put together some suggestions to help you plan your visit. We’ve divided them up into:

  • Local – within walking distance, which in practice means in Kirkby Malzeard itself
  • Nearby – within a short drive away, not more than 20 mins or so
  • Further Afield – but worth the trip, especially if you can fit them in to a touring itinerary

They are all ordered by distance from Cowscot House.
