Beverley Restaurants

  • Near St Marys

    This is , in my opinion, one of Beverley's best restaurants. A very old building that has been converted in to a restaurant - there are three small rooms for diners but the room to the left of the entrance is the most welcoming if you want a cosy atmosphere. We sat in the front room and had a window table looking out of the bow window you can see...

  • In nearby Walkington

    Just 3 miles from Beverley in the beautiful village of Walkington is this pub / restaurant. This is a large hostelry with a two tier car park at the rear (and overnight accommodation too). Very traditional and English in style it is made up of a number of small intimate rooms that all lead on to a large food serving area.There is menu only offers...

  • An Italian that always succeeds

    Wherever there is a Prezzo you can always expect quality from this national chain and in 2013 Prezzo came to Beverley. It stands at the northern end of the Market Square near the Market Cross in a building that used to be a bank.Contemporary décor - pine floors and plain magnolia walls with nice comfortable benches and chairs and tables. There are...

  • Thatched restaurant in the Hull road

    Despite its appearance the Warton Arms is not actually an old English inn - it was built just a few years ago to replace an austere pub that stood here for many years and was actually opened by Laurel and Hardy.However it is an authentic rebuild and is traditional inside or out (photos to follow). You can stop by for a coffeee or drink as many do...

  • Grab a bite

    As well as a number of pubs and restaurants there are a quite a few shops selling pies, pasty's and cakes! Vicki made a stop for a couple of nice sausage rolls to keep us going.

  • Nice and typical English Pub

    Being hungry as I was but wishing to discover some local food I tried this pub. And I found more than I expected. First of all, it is big inside in spite of the narrow facade so it was comfortable. But It was very authentic, real English pub, exactly what I was looking for. And here I discovered English food too through a very tasty, big and cheap...

Beverley Nightlife

    Ah, Nellie's... Not that any local ever calls it by its proper name 'The White Horse'. Located at the end of Hengate this I guarantee is the most atmospheric pint you'll get this side of the country. The layout is labyrinthine, the ceilings low and the gaslights cast a dim glow throughout all the rooms - but trust me this is why you'll love the...

  • The Monks Walk

    The Monks WalkDown by the Minster this is another old, Nellie’s-esque pub that happily forgoes the crowd pleasing wall-to-wall drink promotions and thumping dance music come nightfall. Though not as labyrinthine as Nellie’s you definitely get the feel that this pub has been around some time with it’s actual rustic (rather that ‘rustic effect’)...

  • The White Horse

    No one locally would even know where the White Horse is - this pub is Nellies and always will be. Named after an elderly spinster owner called er...........Nelly this remains the most atmospheric pub in East Yorkshire. Modernisation has never reached Nellys and hopefully never will - low ceilings, dark low rooms of which there are several and the...

  • Cream telephone boxes

    You may be surprised to see cream telephone boxes in Beverley. This is because Beverley falls within the Kingston Communication area from its base in Hull and this is England's only independent telephone service - there is no BT service in this area.For this reason you cannot use BT phonecards (do they still exist?) in these phone boxes and they...

Beverley Warnings and Dangers

  • Orbital_'s Profile Photo

    by Orbital_ Written Feb 27, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ‘Saturday Market’ area gets really rowdy on Friday and Saturday nights especially around 23:00 when the pubs are turfing people out. Steer clear if you’re after a quiet night unless you don’t mind navigating the boozed-up hyena-like packs of teeny-boppers lasses and their accompanying shaven-headed chaperones.

Beverley Off The Beaten Path

  • Skidby Windmill

    There have been windmills in Skidby since 1316 although probably not on the same site as the present mill. The first record of a mill on the present site appeared in 1764. This mill was sold in 1821 to make way for a new tower mill. After a change in tenancy, the mill was acquired by Joseph Thompson and remainded in the Thompson family for the next...

  • Beverley Minster is under rated

    As a child I spent a lot of my summer time in Beverley visiting my Grandparents.I was always in awe of the Beverley Minster and the wonderful history it represents.I did a lot of brass rubbings and pretending I was in the pulpit giving a fiery sermon.This church is so under rated. It rivals York Minster. Go on a Saturday or Wednesday and take in...

  • Wandering and discovering shops

    Here you can get everywhere simply walking and ambient is nice. Why not wandering through its streets and see what new surprise there's around the corner?. Only in half an hour I could find some fine old pubs, every kind of food shops and, especially, the best sweets and candies I've ever met. This village is really worthy!

Fast becoming one of the premiere meets in the north course has a packed schedule each season and the town itself is noticeably more bustling on race day. I can't say it's my favourite way to spend an afternoon to be honest, but thousands upon...
