We love a bit of scran in Yorkshire, and it shows as two or the county’s cities have featured in Which? Top 7 cities for food & drink in the UK.
Beating out the nations capital Sheffield and York feature in the list, which surveyed 3,000 people on their favourite UK city for food & drinks.
Which?, the consumer website said that only seven out of more than 50 of the best and worst UK city breaks scored five stars including the two from Yorkshire.
London only managed to scrape three stars – which shows that you don’t have to go all the way down south for a bit of decent food. Not that us folk in Yorkshire thought that anyways.
Which? used a range of factors to score each city including cultural sights, shopping, value for money, and accommodation, as well as an overall visitor score.
Writing about Sheffield Which highlighted its independent coffee shops, cafes bars, and restaurants has helped transform the place from a disused industrial space into a cool city with a lot to offer.
They noted that Kelham Island, which had previously been named one of the coolest cities in the UK, had plenty to offer in luring the Cutlery Works – the best food hall in the UK, the city’s most acclaimed restaurant Joro and V or V which is perfect for vegetarians and vegans.
It also noted that micro-breweries are rife in the city along with cosy pubs serving real ale.
Our beautiful historic city York was praised for its “quaint cafes” and “upmarket restaurants” along with its street food offering on the “Shambles Market”.
Head out onto the famous Gillygate, where Which? survey praised the stylish bistro No 8 and cheesemongers, Love Cheese. The Star Inn The City’s sister restaurant to Star Inn at Harem was also given a nod.
It boozers we’re also praised including the tiny Blue Bell pub on Fossgate along with The Phoenix Inn. Perfect if you looking for an old-fashioned pub.
