The Old Post Office sit at the heart of the village of Rosedale Abbey, in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. This means that you will never be short of places to eat, either within the village itself, or further afield across North Yorkshire. This page covers just some of the Rosedale Abbey pubs and places to visit, dine and relax in Rosedale and the local area.
Within the Village
Simply stepping outside of the front door puts you in the centre of Rosedale Abbey. For such a small village, Rosedale has a remarkable choice of pubs and places to eat and drink, with no less than three pubs and two tea rooms to choose from. As you’d expect, it the best British tradition, they all have classical English country pub names too!
The White Horse is situated at the edge of the village, slightly elevated and gives lovely views out over the village and surrounding countryside. It’s origin dates back to the 16th century and has that must-have feature of all the best pubs – a roaring log fire. An extensive menu created from locally sourced ingredients also offers several good quality vegetarian options. You can choose to dine in the restaurant and enjoy views over the countryside, oe enjoy a bar meal beside the fire.
The Blacksmiths Country Inn is a 2.3 mile walk from Rosedale Abbey to the neighbouring village of Hartoft. Right at the edge of Cropton Forest, it offers a good selection of beers and food. If you’re looking for a typical English countryside pub, then this is a good one to visit.
The Coach House Inn is just over half a mile outside of Rosedale Abbey and features more good quality beers and food, with a very good children menu and a beer garden to the front of the pub, which is great for relaxing over the summer months.
Right in the centre of the village is Graze on the Green. As it’s name suggests, this coffee shop and tea room is right beside the village green. The menu offers a range of choices, from snacks and cakes right through to full meals accompanied by wines and spirits. They also offer a take away service, for those who really wish to avoid the kitchen on their stay with us!
For those who like to walk up an appetite, Dale Head Farm Tea Garden is a bracing walk to the edges of the village. Situated mid way along a really interesting walking route, Dale Head serves generous potions of cakes, as well as that all important Yorkshire Tea and Taylors Coffee. Dale Head was recently featured in Terry Wogan’s Tour of Britain and is certainly well worth the walk to visit.
All of these locations are situated either within the village itself, or within a reasonably short walk of The Old Post Office. No matter the time of year, you will find something very satisfying to eat or drink between these great places.
