Enjoy Yorkshire’s best seasonal foods – from forest floor to plate

Helmsley, North Yorkshire

The Michelin-starred food at Harome’s Star Inn is not the only reason to make a foodie trip to the pretty North York Moors’ village.

Situated just outside the market town of Helmsley, chef Andrew Pern’s stellar thatched-roofed inn has carved out an enviable reputation for its ‘modern Yorkshire’ food using local ingredients.

And the village of Harome – small though it is – doesn’t just have one destination dining experience but two, the other in the shape of the Pheasant Hotel, which hosts seasonal foraging and dining trips curated by the ‘Yorkshire Food Finder’ team.

Helmsley itself plays a solid supporting role when it comes to finding places to eat, with its artisan bakery, gourmet delis, indie coffee shops, quirky restaurants and high-end tearooms, and market day (Friday) sees anything from Whitby smoked fish to Yorkshire chorizo on sale in the town square.
