An Unmissable Escape to Two of Yorkshire’s Finest Dining Destinations

Fondly referred to as ‘God’s Own County’, Yorkshire boasts fine provenance, with its larder bursting with goodies from the land, sea and rivers. Experience the finest that the county has to offer with ‘Yorkshire’s Finest Dining Experience’. A two-night luxury gourmet Dales stay, which includes dinner at two exemplary restaurants, The Angel at Hetton and The Burlington at The Devonshire Arms near Skipton.

Both The Angel and Burlington offer foodies a new reason to visit, with The Angel having gained its Michelin Star last month, a year after Chef Patron Michael Wignall joined the team, and The Burlington having its new Head Chef at the helm, Peter Howarth who has enjoyed a stellar career to date, with a list of well-respected hotel restaurants under his belt including Gidleigh Park and The Latymer at Pennyhill Park, both of which held two Michelin stars and 5 AA rosettes.

The two Chefs became friends back in 2010 when Michael was Head Chef at The Burlington and Peter was Sous Chef, so Peter has now come full circle to be in the top role at The Burlington, a year after Michael’s return to the Dales.


A gourmet tasting menu with pre-dinner Champagne aperitif is included at both restaurants, with a complimentary chauffeur ride to and from The Angel, with The Devonshire Arms’ ‘Home James’ service, plus two nights’ accommodation at The Devonshire Arms, including full Yorkshire breakfast, and complimentary spa access.

The Burlington specialises in seasonal and ever-changing tasting menus. From home-grown fruit and vegetables from the Hotel’s own kitchen garden, to produce reared and caught on the Duke’s Estate, each ingredient is carefully considered from seed to fork within the seasonal menus. Dishes are cooked and presented skilfully by Peter and his team, who pride themselves in delivering an exceptional dining experience.

The Angel Inn at Hetton is widely regarded as the UK’s original gastropub. The ancient inn has origins which date back to the 15th century, forming the basis of hundreds of years of delicious dining and drinking. Michael Wignall delivers food that wows on every plate, creating dishes that are full of flavour and underpinned by a contemporary, less formal approach to fine dining. Famous for its food, as well as its warm, welcoming atmosphere – it has maintained a strong following among locals, and with customers from all over the world.
