Hello and thank you for your review. I am so happy you appreciated our lasagna. I think the couple who wanted a Yorkshireman's portion should have ordered the steak and ale cobbler! I hope you have received my recipe and that you can follow it!...More

We visited the Royal Oak having not been for some years. It's a cosy old pub but with smart decor and a roaring log fire. We had a warm welcome when we arrived and the service throughout the meal was very good. We were very...More

Your quote ‘Some bubbling cheese poured over might have added some authenticity!’ Well this just makes me realise you have never had a proper Italian lasagna. Authenticity! I have lived 14 years in Tuscany and 9 in Rome, and never ever have I seen an...More

We visited as a family at a weekend. The owner and staff could not have been more attentive and friendly adding to a delightful atmosphere. The food is good with plenty of gluten-free options.

It's a balmy summer Tuscan evening and you're wandering through a quiet hill town deciding where to eat. As you turn a corner, you're assailed by the unmistakable scent of Yorkshire puddings cooking in beef dripping. OK. Now reverse that image. It's a parky winter...More

A traditional country pub in pretty village of Nunnington. The new owners have just returned from Italy and their aim is to blend Yorkshire fare, using locally sourced produce with products from known farmers in Tuscany. They hope to achieve 'where Yorkshire meets Tuscany' with appetising sharing plates and dishes of the day using seasonal produce. They wish to continue serving local beers to the regulars and have a well selected wine list. Family Sunday lunch times (Two courses £14.95 And Three courses £17.95).
