On a recent trip up to Yorkshire to see my Mum, we went for a light lunch at Mannion & Co in the quaint market town of Helmsley – the only market town in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. I’d been to their York restaurant a couple of years ago which I wrote about here and since then, the company has been going from strength to strength.
The new location in Helmsley definitely has a different vibe to York – it feels a lot more cosy and rural given the setting, welcoming dog walkers to take a pew downstairs, with views across to the beautiful Helmsley Castle from the top floor. It’s also incredibly popular with queues at times – good reviews travel fast! They also sell a range of superb cakes, pastries and cheeses.
Mum and I were just looking for something fairly simple as we were going out for dinner later that day, but having said that, Mannion & Co doesn’t really do simple! I ordered a scotch egg and Mum ordered a sausage roll. And look at what we were served…
… Beautifully plated and utterly delicious!
This is just a short post as we didn’t try any other dishes or drinks, but I’ll definitely be returning soon, so keep your eyes peeled. They’ve been doing some themed evenings recently, such as ‘Spanish night’, and if the food is anywhere near as good as the dishes we tried on our visit, it’ll certainly be worth going to!
