Lower Dunsforth, York, YO26 9SA
On the doorstep of the Dales is the hamlet of Lower Dunsforth, which is found in the middle of the 'golden triangle' below Thirsk and equidistant from Harrogate and York. It's at this unassuming but incredibly beautiful spot that you'll find chef patron Paul Cunliffe's first solo venture: The Dunsforth.

This is a destination restaurant where you can both come and experience the best steak and ale pie for miles around, as well as sample a sensational seven-course tasting menu with a matching wine flight. Concentrate on the central à la carte selection, though, and you can enjoy some of the restaurant's most popular dishes to their fullest. Start with the cured salmon, follow with a plate of locally shot venison served with a venison sausage roll and bean cassoulet, and finish with the delightful carrot cake garden: a dessert consisting of candied carrots, chocolate soil and cream cheese ice cream.

Paul and his brigade make everything they serve from scratch, yet still somehow manage to keep the menu prices very affordable. The prix fixe, for example, begins at £13.50 for one course, and rises to only £20 for three courses, meaning that there will be more money in the budget left over to enjoy whatever wine takes your fancy from the 60-strong list. And you can't say fairer than that
