The Trip – BBC2, Rob Brydon & Steve Coogan

Why do you ask are we writing a blog post about a BBC2 comedy with Rob Brydon & Steve Coogan?  Well “The Trip” will be a six part comedy series on BBC2 airing in the Autumn about a food critic touring six different restaurants for review and features some of our great Northern Restaurants in the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales.

During filming and as part of the show the film crew visited L’enclume in Cartmel, recently voted number 4 in the top ten restaurants in the country and a restaurant I have not tried yet but is surely on my “must try” list!  The Angel at Hetton, a local favourite of ours, The Inn at Whitewell and Hipping Hall another family favouritenear Kirkby Lonsdale.  Whilst filming at The Angel the crew stayed at The Lister Arms in Malham and did a bit of sightseeing around Malham including Gordale Scar and then over to The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey and some splashing about in the river on the stepping stones.

The first episode featuring The Inn at Whitewell is scheduled for November the 1st 2010 on BBC2 at 10pm.

    The Angel is well worth it. It’s a superb restaurant and a fantastic building. One of my favourite Yorkshire restaurants.

    Google Maps has just told me that L’Enclume is only 1hr 41mins from my front door, which isn’t really that far to drive for dinner. Is it?
