Food & Drink

As part of our May Day Deli we are supporting the local economy by inviting local producers and small catering businesses to be part of this event. By sourcing locally, we are able to provide you with a taste of Yorkshire from a small but varied range of artisan foods. On our doorstep we have a wonderful choice of foods to suit all tastes, from quality meats and fish to beautiful preserves, individual chutneys and Dales cheeses, together with a range of home baking fresh from Kettlewell’s own band of bakers. Finally, as temperatures rise, there will also be our very own Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream, to cool you down.

The hog roast and barbecue would not be complete without a choice of local ales or you can choose a fine wine instead. There will be a range of wines to choose from which is also a perfect match for the selection of cheeses on offer. Then there’s the sumptuous scone or May Day cakes which would not be the same without a good old Yorkshire cuppa. So don’t despair, as you can also choose from some fine Yorkshire Tea or coffee.
