North Yorkshire is a county with an amazing variety of environments and landscapes. From the industrial centre of Middlesbrough to seaside resorts such as Scarborough, the historic city of York and fine market town of Harrogate, the county's urban areas have something to offer everyone. The countryside is just as dramatic, with the North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales occupying around 40% of the county. This huge range of settings inspire North Yorkshire restaurants to deliver food that is just as varied and as exciting as the landscapes.

Chefs in North Yorkshire restaurants enjoy an abundance of fine local produce. Splendid dairy farms produce the famous Wensleydale cheese, while the Yorkshire pudding is a national treasure. Rhubarb is a key crop, while licorice is celebrated in Pontefract. Pikelets and parkins reflect the locals' love of good baking and it can all be washed down with traditional ginger beer, strong Yorkshire tea or some of the county's fine ales. With some excellent beef and lamb, not to mention the excellent fresh fish from Whitby, restaurants in North Yorkshire are bursting with traditional flavours.
The richness of the county larder, along with the locals' love of good food, has attracted chefs from all over the world to North Yorkshire. Their restaurants may make good use of these local ingredients but they also add a splash of international inspiration. There are some excellent eateries from Asia, including fabulous Chinese, Indian, Japanese and Thai restaurants. From the other side of the world, Latin American restaurants are joined by US diners and Mexican cantinas to bring you a delicious taste of the Americas.
