Why not go out for afternoon tea in Yorkshire? This iconic English tradition is an indulgence that can be uber stylish or pleasantly laidback, depending on your preference. The Queen of Afternoon Tea, Betty’s, can be found at various Yorkshire locations, most famously in Harrogate but also in York, Ilkley and Northallerton. For a more contemporary option, try the ‘G & Tea’ at The Clevedon Restaurant in Ben Rhydding – a quintessentially English gin and tonic served in a China cup. To find your perfect spot, browse our collection of the best places for afternoon tea in Yorkshire.
For a more luxurious dining experience, book a table at one of Yorkshire’s seven Michelin Star restaurants. Each restaurant has earned multiple awards and (obviously) serves exceptional cuisine, so it just depends on where you would prefer to go! Dine with a beautiful countryside backdrop at The Angel in the Yorkshire Dales or The Black Swan Oldstead in the North York Moors, the latter of which was also awarded a Green Michelin Star in recognition of its sustainability efforts. The Pipe and Glass Inn in East Yorkshire is housed in a historic building near Beverley, or you can head to Yorkshire’s most notable cities – Ripon, Leeds, and York.
Would you prefer to make your Mother’s Day celebration more independent and interactive? Sign up for a lesson at one of the many Yorkshire Cookery Schools for an exciting hands-on food experience that is fun to share with friends or family. Be indulgent with a chocolate crafting course, perfect your baking skills in beautiful surroundings, or spice up your life by learning how to make inventive international recipes. There are options to suit chefs of all skill levels from total beginner to ‘could go pro!’.
Yorkshire is home to endless gastronomic delights, so the world is your oyster when it comes to choosing your culinary experience! For more great ideas for giving the gift of food this Mother’s Day, check out our dedicated food and drink website Yorkshire Menu.
