During a recent visit to the Yorkshore Dales we decided to enjoy a special evening for my birthday. We made our way over the moors to the Yorke Arms.
A friendly welcome and tasty pre-dinner nibbles with our wine. Into the dining room...somewhat dreary decor. This is a Michelin star restaurant and having dined in a few others in France and the United States, we really expected more. No table cloth, ordinary glassware and cutlery, rather uninspired china, no flowers on the table. The service was excellent, but it seemed to be too precious and a bit stiff for the atmosphere of the place. The food was delicious, tasty and well prepared, however, the prices are really a bit steep for such a rural and remote restaurant...this was my first $60 main course! The trip home was interesting in the dark and stormy night. I would recommend that if you eat here, you should probably plan to spend the night.More
