|Royal Oak, Ripon|
The Royal Oak was the place which drew us in from the cold. It has a fresh and clean look inside and out and the place has atmosphere even on a grey Monday afternoon. Located on Kirkgate, it is central to town, the cathedral and museums.

Tom had a crab salad which although very pretty, did become a little same same. Perhaps some bread or less crab-more salad would have balanced this but the presentation was really lovely. The crab was lain on a bed of cucumber jelly which didn't cut through the thick layer of crab but did taste great. The preserved lemons added great flavour, too.
