They've got it off to an afternoon tea

Ben Allnutt serves up a right,
proper Yorkshire tea.
Despite what its name might suggest, the word is that you can now get a rather nice afternoon tea at the Yorkshire bar and grill in York's Monkbar hotel.

It's serving up a true regional picnic complete with Yorkshire Ham hock sarnies, buns stuffed with Yorkshire goats cheese and Yorkshire curd tart washed down by a mug of Yorkshire Tea.

The new Yorkshire Picnic – afternoon tea for Northern folk is one of the new additions to a menu that boasts locally-sourced ingredients.

All meat served in picnic comes from Thirsk-based R&J Yorkshire’s Finest Butchers, while all fish is also from local sources; FR Fowler and Son in York and Taylor Seafood.

Located in the heart of York’s historic medieval city centre, The Yorkshire bar and grill is found within the Best Western Monkbar Hotel, and is a major feature of the venue’s recent £3m upgrade.

Head chef Ben Allnutt said: “Since our inception 12-months ago, we have prided ourselves on serving up great Yorkshire fare.

“The Yorkshire Picnic is our latest offering and is already proving incredibly popular with those people looking for an afternoon tea with a difference.

“It is a culinary celebration of the region and features a host of traditional dishes which have been given a 21st century makeover.”

The Yorkshire bar and grill’s Yorkshire Picnic is serves daily from 2pm-5pm.
