Twenty minutes north of York in the pretty village of Hovingham, the Worsley Arms is a gorgeous country house that was built in the 1840s as a spa hotel. Complete with open log fires and elegant
furnishings, it houses a warm and cosy restaurant that looks out over the pretty village green. The feel is traditional, the food top-notch. Start with smooth duck liver p?t? with granary toast and
the Worsley Arms? own chutney then tuck into breast of chicken with sweet potato mash, wilted pak choi and a fragrant coriander, ginger and lime jus. Finish light with a cool, refreshing sorbet or
go the whole hog with the handmade pineapple, mango and raspberry trifle. This restful, informal hotel makes a hospitable base for exploring the Yorkshire countryside but the restaurant is a great
reason to visit in its own right.
