This 17th-century coaching inn was once the grande dame of Beverley and has now been rescued from the doldrums. It’s a buzzing place full of ladies who lunch, deeply efficient staff and excellent food from fine dining to a home cooked pie and good local ale at the bar.
There are plenty of places to unwind – lounges with comfy seating areas and blazing fires, a restaurant in the conservatory, a terrace with a fire pit, and two bars – one for champagne, the other cosy and overlooking the lovely St Mary’s church.
Discover homemade biscuits on the tea tray in your room, and the full Yorkshire breakfasts include black pudding – late risers can choose from the brunch menu. Eat in at the all-day restaurant or walk down the road for Michelin-starred dining at The Westwood. You’re also two minutes from the Market Square and lots of good shops. Explore the 15th-century North Bar gate and the fine Gothic church of Beverley Minster.
