How far:41.1 miles

What the Michelin Guide says:Currently closed due to fire, it will reopen in the summer of 2022.

This 14th century thatched building oozes character with its low beamed ceilings and fires burning in the log fires. While the restaurant side has an upscale feel, it's still very much the village spot and you'll find regulars sipping beer at the signature bar.

This is a place that proudly defends its region of origin, with fish fromWhitby, game from the Yorkshire Moors and vegetables from the garden, and Chef Steve Smith uses these ingredients to create rich, bold and flavorful dishes with a classic foundation and modern twists. The wine list, for its part, offers bottles from some lesser-known producers and processors.

The terrace and gardens provide a relaxing spot, and across the road are a series of converted farm buildings with ultra-stylish rooms: one has a pool table; another, a bed suspended from ropes".
