Very good for gluten free - first Saturday in the month

We visit Land and Sea on the first Saturday in the month for Fish and Chips as it is gluten free afternoon / early evening - till 8pm I think - but you'd need to check with them. Looking forward to it this Saturday again.

This part of England is known as 'Gods own county'. When you see the stunning landscape, quaint villages and experience the blissful peace and quiet you will understand why.

It's situated really far out the way but if you can be bothered to track it down by following the occasional signs then please do. Cheaper than the White Horse and not any worse, with a queue that's generally shorter, it is certainly worth a visit.

Hi. Glad you bothered to track us down as we are tucked away a tad in Sowerby. I only put out all four of my nice new new signs on the days/hours that I'm open and then remove them all that evening in the strict guidelines that Hambleton council gave me. Nice to see that you enjoyed it as we... More

I used to visit this chippie every Saturday a few years ago and it was always spot on. I think it is under new owners now but thought we'd give it a go. As chance would have it we arrived just before closing time and as they were shutting up shop they gave us extra! It all tasted great and... More
