Popular menu staples include their ‘Yorkshire breakfast’ and breakfast hash, but there are also some super-northern additions – like crisp butties, Yorkshires with gravy, and stuffed Yorkshire puds. The dedicated Yorkshire pudding dishes are what’s really got us excited – like their breakfast Yorkshire puddings, which come filled with baked eggs, crispy bacon bits and Henderson’s relish.

Or, of course, if you really want the ultimate Yorkshire experience you could always spring for their roast on a Sunday. The presentation on these makes it all about Yorkshire again: perfectly fluffy, large puds stacked on top of your main and its accoutrements.

As for other dishes available here, think big English fry ups, toasties with chips and a big mug of tea or coffee for under a fiver, burgers, wraps, sandwiches, and more.
