I know we’ve all been dreaming about the 12th of April. That first visit to either the pub, cafe, or restaurant for so long now; to be able to sit outside and enjoy that feeling of togetherness, sharing our love of great food, chilled drinks in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside.

(Following the guidelines and the rule of six of course).

Many of our great eateries are doing absolutely everything they can to get back doing what they do best. So providing their customers with a warm, welcoming, and comfortable outdoor dining area for us to enjoy is top of their list.

There are so many amazing places with outdoor dining in North Yorkshire, and we are going to be spoilt for choice, but I don’t mind, I’ll happily sample them all!

Let’s say thank you.  Let’s give our lovely local hospitality venues our support!

Brymor Ice Cream Palour – by me


This is a Girl About recommendation. This means that it was not gifted in return for a review but paid in full by our writer and the venue had no idea that I was there. We only recommend places we absolutely love, and places that we know you’ll love too!
