Food and drink

East Yorkshire is full of delicious temptation, evocative aromas, amazing local produce and endless ways to treat yourself and your family. Dive in and enjoy a holiday that tastes as good as it looks!


A real taste of East Yorkshire

Our pubs, restaurants, farmshops and delicatessens, cafes and tearooms are bursting with local produce, carefully sourced ingredients and delicious seasonal flavours. From locally crafted beers and handmade chocolates to artisan breads and our own single malt whiskey, and from farmers to bakers through to luxury ice cream makers, East Yorkshire is an amazing place to visit and an even better place to taste.


Cosy corners and unique treats

Food isn’t just about the flavour. From clotted cream scones in a converted barn tearoom overlooking rolling hills, to a local real ale in the cosy corner of an historic pub with tales to tell, and from devouring freshly made pizzas at a family adventure centre to sipping spiced hot chocolate drinks as you listen to old records, there are many places here, where the experience matters as much as the taste.


Family favourites

There is something very special about the simple joy of eating award-winning fish and chips at the seaside as you sit together, looking out across a sunny harbour or rugged coastline. Or maybe you all have a sweet tooth and it's the scent of sugary donuts, ice cream or candy floss hanging in the air that entices you to indulge at one of our traders’ colourful stalls. Sticky fingers, and smiles on faces, are all part of the traditional holiday experience here.


Fine dining and inspired chefs

Whether it’s for a special occasion or just a decadent part of your trip, when you want a gourmet experience you’ll be spoilt for choice.  You can take a table in a 19th Century stately home with meals as grand as the surroundings or perhaps you’d prefer to combine theatrics and food at a restaurant with a more modern twist, where you can watch highly trained chefs create your plate in the open kitchen. Combining a long country hike with a gourmet pub lunch or ending the day with a long luxurious dinner are just a few of the other options on the table. East Yorkshire has many restaurants and gastropubs to suit whichever dining experience you choose. 


Food and drink experiences

East Yorkshire and amazing flavours go hand in hand. The region’s offering of local produce and fantastically skilled makers and producers, create some tasty products to sample and some impressive experiences to be had. From brewers and distillers to chocolatiers and cookery schools, East Yorkshire has your foodie favourite.


From the land and the sea and from field to fork, great food is at the heart of our region. The combination of beautiful settings, friendly service, and wonderful local produce make this a delicious part of the world to visit. We hope you are hungry to find out more.
