Michelin Star Restaurants in Yorkshire 2024

Michelin Star Restaurants in Yorkshire 2024

For the very best fine dining experience, there is no need to look further than God’s Own County – Yorkshire. There are eight spectacular Michelin Star restaurants in Yorkshire, all waiting to tickle your taste buds with the finest food from the region. This, of course, includes The Black Swan at Oldstead, named by TripAdvisor as the ‘Best Restaurant in the World’!

With Yorkshire boasting miles of coastline for sustainable fishing, acres of farmland for the very best meats and dairy produce, delicious orchards, herbs, breweries and more, it comes as no surprise that people are flocking to the area to get a table at these sought-after restaurants.

Shaun Rankin Grantley Hall Yorkshire Michelin Star

Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall, Ripon – North Yorkshire

One Michelin Star

Originally from Yorkshire, Shaun Rankin honed his skills at The Mayfair Hotel in London and attended the Thames Valley University at Slough. Shaun’s love of the sea then took him to the Channel Islands where he spent the majority of his career residing in Jersey.

Since Grantley Hall’s opening in 2019, and the appointment of Shaun to oversea the fine dining restaurant, the hotel has received an array of awards. The hotel is an impressive Yorkshire Dales jewel. Grantley Hall’s Michelin star is a reflection of the hard work and dedication from the team to be recognised with one of the highest accolades in the culinary world.

The Black Swan at Oldstead - Michelin Guide

The Black Swan at Oldstead – North Yorkshire

One Michelin Star and one Green Star for their commitment to sustainability

Michelin Star restaurant in Yorkshire The Black Swan at Oldstead has been perfectly summed up by chef Tommy Banks when he describes ‘it’s not just a job for us, it’s a lifestyle’. Such a lifestyle comes about from generations of the Banks family living and farming around Oldstead, with their knowledge of the land and produce being translated onto each plate of food.

The Black Swan is a beautiful marriage between tradition, homeliness and modern eccentricity, with Oldstead produce meeting lashings of creativity. From the outside, The Black Swan looks like a cosy, quintessentially English Pub. Once inside, however, it offers a relaxed, yet casual, rustic fine dining experience.

Chef Tommy Banks was Britain’s youngest Michelin Starred Chef in 2013, aged only 24. Since then, he has won Great British Menu in both 2016 and 2017, with The Black Swan at Oldstead being named ‘Best Fine Dining Restaurant in the World’ in 2017, and the ‘Best Restaurant in the UK’ in 2018 by The Food and Travel Magazine. He works alongside Development Chef Nick Brown, who experiments with alternative produce and techniques to build new dishes, and Head Chef Will Lockwood to offer the best Oldstead produce and menus all year round.

The menu is a fresh take on ingredients used in Oldstead for generations. As such, some ingredients are outwardly simple but given a new lease of life with flavours developed by fermenting, pickling and ageing. Of course, to wash it down there is a carefully selected drinks menu featuring high-end wines, spirits and cocktails; including a selection of locally distilled Garden Spirits. If you’re searching for a rooted Michelin Star Restaurant in Yorkshire but with modern food at its forefront, The Black Swan at Oldstead is one not to miss.

2024 saw The Black Swan in Oldstead retain its Michelin Green Star alongside its Michelin Star. The Michelin Green Star is a recognition of sustainable gastronomy practices, commitment to reducing food waste and use of locally sourced ingredients on their menus.

The Pipe and Glass Beverley Exterior

The Pipe and Glass, Beverley – East Riding of Yorkshire

One Michelin Star

The Pipe and Glass Michelin Star restaurant with rooms, nestled in the East Yorkshire town of Beverley, boasts a historic and picturesque atmosphere. The restaurant, which has held its Michelin Star since 2010, reflects the town with its 15th-century building and Yorkshire charm. Chef James Mackenzie and his wife Kate have embraced the traditional English pub spirit but combined it with a generous helping of modernity and luxury. This makes The Pipe and Glass a destination for both quality pub-goers and die-hard foodies alike.

James grew up on the North Yorkshire Coast and began his career at the age of 13, making him the perfect candidate to bring the very best out of Yorkshire foraged veg and herbs, local meats and seafood. His menu takes from the much-beloved English classics, such as fish pie and sausage rolls, but reforms them into modern and beautifully prepared dishes to get your mouth watering. With a considered wine list, tasty children’s menu and extensive vegetarian options, The Pipe and Glass is the perfect place to cosy up and indulge in comforting surroundings, delicious food and friendly staff.

Hearth Hull Bone Marrow - Michelin Star restaurants Yorkshire
Hearth, Hull

New Michelin Plate Awarded Restaurants in Yorkshire

Alongside the Michelin Star restaurants in Yorkshire, there are many restaurants with Michelin Plate awards, given to restaurants when the inspectors have discovered quality food.

Craig Rogan at The Collective, Leeds. Michelin said: Housed inside the creative hub that is ‘The Collective’, in the centre of bustling Leeds, this minimally decorated spot operates as a café by day and a restaurant by night. Thoroughly modern, clever cooking is offered by the eponymous chef, who knows how to put an immense amount of flavour into every dish. Choose between a 5 or 8-course tasting menu, or from the concise à la carte.”

Thomas Carr @ The Coast, Scarborough. Michelin said: “His restaurant occupies two cosy rooms inside Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, with Thomas’ love and understanding of seafood clear to see throughout the well-balanced, classically based dishes. Each individual course on the tasting menu is enjoyable in itself, but the full experience is enhanced when they come together as a whole. The friendly, engaging service perfectly complements this skilful cooking.”

Hearth, Hull. Michelin said: “Run by a trio of friends and located among some fine buildings in the old part of town, this buzzy spot operates over two levels. The ground floor houses a bar and bakery, while the upstairs is home to the rustic two-room restaurant. The menu fuses small plates with larger dishes, often coming from the grill – or ‘hearth’ – that takes centre stage in the open kitchen.”

Pignut, Helmsley. Michelin said: “With just six tables, there is a cosy feel to this little restaurant with clean, unfussy décor. Dishes are fed by produce from the surrounding area, including Helmsley Walled Garden and the Castle Howard estate, while the tasting menu – available in 4 or 8 courses – begins with a ‘wastage’ dish which uses up offcuts from the other courses. The cooking showcases a range of textures and flavours, sometimes with an imaginative touch.”

Bar & Restaurant 88 at Grantley Hall, near Harrogate. Michelin said: “In the immaculately kept grounds of Grantley Hall sits this popular dining spot which features a chic ground floor bar and an exotically styled basement restaurant, with moody lighting, and glass flower hanging from the ceiling. The Asian menu offers plenty of old favourites alongside some more original dishes; must-tries include the char siu of Yorkshire pork belly and the exotic fruit rum baba.”

Prashad - Bib Gourmand Michelin Star restaurants in Yorkshire

Michelin Bib Gourmand Awarded Restaurants

West Yorkshire’s popular Prashad and York’s renowned Skosh have retained their sought-after Bib Gourmand award (the accolade below one star) for ‘good quality, good value restaurants’.

Prashad – Michelin said: “This colourfully decorated, family-run restaurant offers interesting, original Indian vegetarian cooking inspired by the owners Gujarati heritage. Dishes are substantial in both size and flavour and spicing is well-judged; the dosas are popular.”

Skosh – Michelin said: “This bright restaurant is located close to the 12C Micklegate Bar; sit at the counter to watch the action. ‘Skosh’ comes from the Japanese word meaning ‘small amount’; a reference to the small plates for which the restaurant is known. Many dishes have Asian influences; choose around 6 or 7 between two.”
