Pickering has a wide range of restaurants, cosy pubs and bistros to satisfy even the heartiest of appetites with true Yorkshire fare.
As a historic market town dating back to a charter awarded by King John in the 1200s, local produce has always taken centre stage in Pickering which plays host to three butchers, two greengrocers and countless bakeries, all in addition to the bustling market which takes place every Monday. With three farm shops on the outskirts of town selling local seasonal produce, Pickering couldn’t be better placed to pick up those vital ingredients for a picnic adventures! Or if Mitchelin star dining is more on your menu, the area caters for that too.
For those with a sweeter tooth, chocolatiers and gelaterias can both be found on the Market Place situated between an abundance of pretty tearooms and modern coffee shops, and if it is ale that you are after then you have arrived in the right town.
Boasting its own brewery, five public houses and a wine bar to boot, it is the perfect place to unwind after a day’s exploration; whether that be by enjoying a glass of fine wine by a cosy fire or enjoying a sun-downer in one of the town’s beautiful beer gardens.
