Yorkshire Portions

Had a fantastic break in Yorkshire where the local produce was of a high quality and portion sizes were generous to say the least. Highlights were the home made steak and ale pies at the Blacksmith's Arms in Lastingham. The high quality food was particularly welcome as we were half way round a walk that started in drizzle moved to hail and then to heavy rain and driving wind just before we squleched into Lastingham. An open fire and a warm welcome soon dried us out and the remainder of the walk was competed with a warm glow inside and out!
Samuels in Whitby serves very good fish and chips as well as other fish dishes and is well worth a visit.
There are a number of good farm shops and the one we stopped at for our breakfast on our journey back to London, Beadlam Grange, has fresh local vegetables, meat, bread and cheese along with very large breakfasts.

Already planning to return in next year!
