65-66 Saturday Market, Beverley, HU17 8AJ [Map]
Housed in a period building, opposite to the Market Cross, Prezzo Beverly offers authentic Italian cuisine in the heart of this bustling Yorkshire market town. Close to popular attractions like Beverley Minster, the Treasure House and Art Gallery and Beverley Racecourse, the restaurant is also just a short walk from the Beverly Rail Station.
Spread over two floors, the impressive interior features large windows and mirrors, creating a relaxed, airy setting for a delicious meal with friends or the family.
The restaurants satisfy the needs of those who like genuine Italian cuisine, as they use only the best seasonal products, many of which are imported directly from Italy. The menu includes pizza, pasta, risotto, grilled meats, fresh salads and frequently changing specials.
The freshly baked breads, like the garlic pizza bread with caramelised balsamic onions and melted mozzarella cheese, are perfect for sharing and give you adequate breathing space to order starters to follow. Crab cakes served with garlic mayonnaise or grilled goats' cheese with plum tomatoes and caramelised onions on focaccia bread with a balsamic glaze set the tone for a hearty meal.
Find pastas such as the unusual chicken ravioli, made pancetta bacon, petits pois and grana padano cheese in a cream sauce; amongst the special pastas, the polpette al forno with meatballs, field mushrooms, caramelised onions, red chillies and penne in a tomato and garlic sauce is interesting and different. Italian menus would be incomplete without risotto, like chicken and red pesto with roasted peppers and grana padano cheese, while tiger prawns with oak roast salmon and petits pois in a creamy saffron sauce, is enticingly different.
Classic pizzas embrace, among a wide selection, the popular fiorentina, topped with spinach, free-range egg, grana padano cheese, marinated olives, mozzarella and tomato, and the much loved quattro formaggi - gorgonzola, goat's cheese, grana padano, mozzarella, tomato.
Specials could include the pollo Siciliana, char-grilled chicken breast, prosciutto ham and plum tomato slices, baked with Prezzo's own blend of cheese, only one example from the many tempting offerings that come out from the Prezzo kitchens.
You can wash down the food with a variety of tipples - ranging from house wine and Chardonnay to liqueurs and beer and there is espresso or fresh ground coffee to wind up an enjoyable meal.

Ellerker Road, Brantingham, Brough, nr Beverley, HU15 1QE [Map]
At the foot of the stunning Brantingham Dale on Ellerker Road lies a familiar landmark that dates back to over 200 years, The Triton Inn's vintage façade is a sign of its advanced years, but inside its been given a slick makeover and is full of conviviality. Diners receive a warm welcome on arrival, presumably an indication of what is in store.
The cooking essentially imbues classic British techniques and all dishes are individually prepared using fresh ingredients. For starters it could be Triton's traditional fishcakes or parcels of smoke salmon and prawns. Healthy eating options are certainly a cause for excitement for weight watchers with seafood pasta and chicken Caesar salad being markers for a nourishing meal, and conventional winners like pork belly, beef stroganoff and steak and ale pie feature amongst main courses.
Triton Inn is a popular place for families to congregate at weekends and the secret garden to the rear is a cosy spot to dine.

37 North Bar Within, Beverley, HU17 8BD [Map]
Pizza Express remains a hugely popular bedrock of casual eating. Its popularity is testimony to the fact that across the country, they have restaurants where you will always be guaranteed a good nosh, with children's tastes being well catered for.
Pizza Express has gone even more Roman, and following the success of that particular example of listening to their public have introduced Romana pizzas, including the scorching Etna and the hearty Siciliana.
These pizzas are now thinner, bigger and crispier, and if that sounds like a marketing line, it is. However, unlike many such lines, this one is true, and their quality is always consistent, though cleverly they have still managed to retain a homemade feel to their pizzas.
As an alternative to pizza, try their pollo pesto - cavatappi pasta with torn chicken breast, mushrooms, red onions and mozzarella in a creamy gruyere, parmesan and pesto sauce and finished with grana padano - or the niçoise salad with mixed leaves, yellowfin tuna, free range egg, green beans, potatoes and tomatoes with olives, anchovies, capers and house dressing.
Many of the big chains have come a long way, and Pizza Express is certainly amongst them. One of the first to be quoted on the Stock Exchange - in 1993 - Pizza Express is not a franchise operation and retains tight control through its own staff.
Their wine list - though short - contains some surprisingly good offerings, especially their intense Australian Chardonnay, and a big, full-bodied Merlot from Cusumano, Sicilia.

12a North Bar Without, Beverley, HU17 7AB [Map]
Whites Restaurant, owned and managed by chef John Robinson, opened in August 2008 in view of Beverley's ancient North Bar. The restaurant showcases the kitchen's use of seasonal local produce and classical French culinary techniques. The venue offers a unique ambience, created by spotless white walls and dark wood furniture, an experience, which is further enhance by the friendly, non-intrusive service.
Marinated brown shrimps, slow cooked duck yolk with tomatoes and pan fried quail followed by venison from Sherburn in Elmet with chestnut croquette, fondant potatoes and chocolate oil make a great meal. Other favourites include pan fried turbot and monkfish 'sous vide'. Desserts choices make an equally good impression with options such as six tastings of apple and roasted bananas with peanut froth and coconut ice cream.
Station Square, Beverley, HU17 0AS [Map]
The Cerutti family seem to have taken to redundant railways buildings like fish to Cerutti 2 at Beverley. Here it is the old waiting rooms at Beverley Station that have been rejuvenated into a spacious and welcoming restaurant that serves attractive and beautifully prepared food with a strong input from the sea.
The value for money is exceptional - for £33 two people can enjoy a three course meal including a bottle of wine, chosen from an attractive menu that could embrace salmon mousse with lemon on seasonal leaves, roast haddock with saffron mash and the pud of the day or cheese board.
At those prices one can hardly grumble at paying extra for the coffee. A decent wine list offers something for everybody. And if you are agonising over what to offer the in-laws for supper the following day a quick visit to Cerutti's deli next door could melt your problems away.

Beverley Road, Skidby, Cottingham, HU16 5TF [Map]
New Walk, Beverley, HU17 7AE [Map]
Located in the grounds of Beverly's old courthouse in New Walk, The Westwood Restaurant delights with its classic frontage and elegant interiors. The chef's table gives an elevated view of proceedings in the kitchen and can seat up to eight people. The venue has space for meetings and functions too.
The sample set menu for lunch offers smoked ham hock and pineapple terrine, baked Queenie scallops, Skipsea wild trout, roast beef sandwich and Sicilian lemon tart. In the evening, the choice for a two or three course meal could include seasonal soup with crusty white bread, pear, pecorino and crisp prosciutto salad, Grimsby smoked haddock, roasted butternut squash risotto and coconut and vanilla pannacotta. Sunday lunch roast is a celebration of '28 day dry aged' Casterbridge fore rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding, seasonal potatoes, duck fat roast potatoes, horseradish, crème fraiche and black sheep onion gravy. For dessert, there's a selection of ice cream and British cheese too. Give wing to the evening with a Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Merlot, Pinot Noir or a classic Dom Perignon.
2 Wednesday Market, Beverley, HU17 0DG [Map]
For some time I made the mistake of thinking that no group of restaurants in the region of 200 locations could hope to maintain the quality for which I was looking.
Then one day I decided to put my prejudices to the test, walked into Oxford ASK Italian! and discovered that I could not have been more mistaken. Their claim to serve freshly prepared quality food in stylish and comfortable surroundings with friendly and efficient service proved to be absolutely spot on.
Since then I have also discovered that a degree of consistency seems to operate throughout their restaurants, and that certainly does take some achieving, implying a degree of management that is enviable. They are perfect places for an impromptu snack, a bit of culinary grazing, or the full works, and families are catered for particularly well.
Their trendy décor usually comprises tiled floors and black furniture with well set tables that sparkle with glass, silver and spotless linen. Ten starters include crostini and bruschetta, followed by a range of salads, pasta and al forno, oven baked pasta, some with chicken.
The pizzas are stone baked in the oven, creating a crisp, authentic and delicious flavour, and they all come topped with mozzarella and tomato. Calzone introduce a touch of opulence with a folded pizza baked in the oven and topped with garlic butter and melted grana padano, whilst inside expect to find chicken or a vegetarian mix.
Amongst the specials may I warmly, in every sense, recommend the polpette al forno, a popular Milanese dish of beef meatballs sautéed in garlic with fire roasted peppers, caramelised onions, chilli and pomodoro sauce, with penne pasta, topped with cheese and oven baked.
An enticing selection of desserts list banoffee pie and tiramisu amongst them, and the coffee tastes like coffee, which may sound banal, but I guess you know what I mean.
Thanks to a well selected wine list speculative drinking can offer handsome dividends, even with prices rarely crossing the £20 barrier.
