One new restaurant recommendation
Today we had lunch at the The Crown Inn Hutton Le Hole arguably the prettiest village in North Yorkshire and a honeypot for tourists visiting the glorious North York Moors, Ryedale Folk Museum The Chocolate factory, scrummy ice cream and tea shops and the perfect place to amble through the picturesque village, lie on the huge green with the beck flowing gently though it and watch the world and his wife going by.
Danny and I met up with friends, frequent visitors to North Yorkshire and they suggested The Crown which is just 15 minutes from Crag House Farm.
What a delight… I had melty in the mouth pink, soft Yorkshire beef Danny had a fab fresh Ploughman’s with added bonus a home made sausage roll. The salad was zingy and fresh, we had sharing crunchy chips. With a varied menu from light bites, vegetarian to 28 day Yorkshire rump steak it was a perfect holiday lunch for us all and the Black Sheep draught beer was ‘spot on’ says Danny!
