Grassington House – Triumphant Feast Grassington

Oh me oh my, this was probably the best meal on the Way of the Roses trip. We arrived to the Craiglands hotel in Grassington, unpacked and cleaned up then headed to dinner. Our fellow guests were shocked that we were eating there, as it seems to have a reputation for exorbitant costs. The costs were certainly close to budget but not excessive I found. Portion size could be described as minimalist but certainly the flavour is concentrated in each beautiful morsel! Grassington House? I didn’t know we were staying with millionaires! We skipped the starter to concentrate on...

The New Inn – Clapham – Terrific Mid Ride Meal

The New Inn – Clapham – Terrific Mid Ride Meal

Prior to an astonishing hill coming out of Settle, we ate a lovely lunch at the New Inn in Clapham, in the Craven district of North Yorkshire. The lunch itself was high quality and we were very grateful to the staff at the New Inn for letting us faff about with our bikes before the huge hill out of Settle. For a combination of the above reasons I must recommend this charming place. The Ploughman’s lunch was absolutely lovely but a little too ambitious for us. We were cycling machines at this point and had had a fulsome breakfast...

The Secret Bistrot – Well Kept Secret Morecambe

Having wandered around Morecambe a little, been told to f off by a local, and escaped to Lancaster, we returned to Morecambe for a spot of dinner. The Secret Bistrot is not really that secret. The name is emblazoned across the window above the Palatine pub, where the drinks from the bistrot are sourced. St Nick and his ruby red shirt began the evening with fresh moules marinieres. These were freshly caught and beautifully cooked. They were tossed in garlic and butter and finished with a cream and parsley sauce. I do not care for seafood generally so did...

Fiddle Drill – Top Shelf Lunch East Yorkshire

Picture the scene, I have just arrived in Hull, my first time out of my city in some time, and Nick’s (erstwhile Saint) first suggestion is for us to leave Hull. More precisely, Nick was an advocate of a 76km bike ride through East Riding and Yorkshire, briefly. We were supposed to go to the Goodmanham (one word, not three) Arms but the charming gentlemen in the window, whom I had not realised I had photographed, confessed to us that he had caught COVID and the restaurant was on lockdown. I hope you will join me in wishing him...

Seoul Kitchen – Staggering Takeaway Birmingham

Now, am I biased because this restaurant is practically next door to me? Perhaps I am. However, the premises had been largely empty for a year and to see them rejuvenated by such a promising restaurant filled me with joy. M and I ordered an outrageously flavoursome meal from Seoul Kitchen last week and I am delighted to be able to write to you about food once more. For once takeaway photographs have not let me down, a testament to the Instagram-readiness which restaurants must have when presenting food to their phone addicted customers, perhaps. The above photographed was...
