Longing for that laid back holiday feeling? Here we have five great foodie spots, all in lovely village locations along the Yorkshire Coast, offering a relaxed atmosphere with a good dose of hearty village hospitality.
The Farrier, Cayton
Situated between Scarborough and Filey, the village of Cayton is home to The Farrier.
Featuring a restaurant, coffee house, gelato parlour, and a cocktail lounge, The Farrier caters to all occasions. The chefs fuse their expertise and creativity to develop various dishes offering exciting food combinations, both modern and traditional, showcasing the best produce that the local farmers and suppliers have to offer. They also featured on Channel 4’s Four In A Bed programme and were crowned the winners in 2020.
North Star, Flamborough
The North Star Hotel is only 100 meters from the sea and is renowned for its fresh Flamborough seafood and wild game caught on the nearby Yorkshire Wolds. So whether you are visiting for a quiet drink, light snack or treat yourself to a selection from the extensive à la carte or table d’hôte menu, you will not be disappointed. Relax and dine in the charming atmosphere of our Olde-Worlde bar or a slightly more formal atmosphere of the dining room with its crisp linen cloths and panoramic views of the dramatic coastline.
The Piebald, Hunmanby
The home of award-winning, ‘Wold-famous’ pie perfection, The Piebald Inn is a warm and welcoming pub on the edge of the bustling village of Hunmanby in Filey.
Known far and wide for its highly acclaimed pie menu, on which much-loved classics are joined by tempting recipes not to be found anywhere else, like its Cleaveland Bay Pie made with 3 cuts of beef: skirt, brisket and oxtail slowly cooked with black treacle, bacon, shallots and chestnut mushrooms. They also offer a menu with plenty of others options for those in the mood for something different, so there really is something for everyone.
Cod & Lobster – Pub, Staithes
Cod and Lobster is a long-established favourite of the village and last defence from the ravages of the North Sea; the pub has felt the wrath of the waves on several occasions! But, whether it’s their famous seafood or array of pub classics, the warm atmosphere is instant in this restaurant.
So – spend some leisurely time feasting on the spectacular view or take refuge for lunch on a blustery winter’s day. Cosy up to the blazing fire and watch the bobbing boats through the rain-lashed windows or sit down for an evening meal and perhaps be lucky to catch a full moon casting a spectacular blue light over the bay.
Bryherstones is a traditional Country Pub that balances its heritage and character with home-cooked, quality food, along with a bar that’s full of tempting drinks, a warm welcome and pleasant company. One of the many unique features of Bryherstones is that it consists of many seating areas, which adds that special character to the place, as at each turn, there appears to be something new to look at. Maybe you will notice a hayrack, or a brass plaque or a worn carved stone that you missed before.
Priding themselves on sourcing the freshest local produce, they offer a menu featuring everything from pub classics to fresh seafood. Showcasing local Yorkshire brewers, their bar also features rotating guest beers from the best Yorkshire offers.
So, there you have it, some of the top foodie spots along the Yorkshire Coast, away from the hustle and bustle of our towns and instead nestled in our quaint, picturesque villages – we hope you enjoy them!
