I'm visiting my brother and girlfriend in a couple of weeks and would like to get them a gift certificate for a nice restaurant/pub. They live between Leeds and Harrogate. Not super-spendy please - I live in the States so get sticker shock at the best of times in the UK. More importantly, I just can't afford the high end stuff!
My brother likes nothing better than the challenge of driving through the wilds of Yorkshire at night, preferably ideally with fog and sheep . . .
Given work schedules, they're actually more likely to go for a leisurely lunch, so it will probably come down to city vs country.
(Don't know why, but I couldn't reply directly to Mr Gimlet's post.)
If I lived in that neck of the woods, I'd appreciate someone treating me to dinner at Van Zeller's in Harrogate.
Very reasonably priced at £50 for three courses.
I wish it had been open when we travelled there fairly often to see family.
