Set in the manicured grounds of The Parsonage Hotel in Escrick, just a short drive from York, The Fat Abbot is a very welcome addition to Yorkshire’s culinary scene. This cosy, atmospheric eatery boasts a well-balanced menu offering delicious, locally sourced ingredients cooked to the highest standard. I started with deep-fried Camembert with clementine and cranberry chutney, followed by tender strips of beef bourguignon with tasty herb dumplings. My companion chose a modern take on the prawn cocktail, which featured Scottish smoked salmon and tempura king prawns, followed by the herb-crusted cannon of Escrick lamb. It was all cooked superbly and tasted divine. For dessert the beer and nut vanilla crème brûlée stole the show – it was the best brûlée we had ever tasted. This is a must-visit gastropub, which also offers accommodation with three comfortable rooms above the premises. Sunday lunches at The Fat Abbot are superb and very popular so booking is recommended.
