So why does The Box Tree in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, get Brides Up North’s vote?

The Box Tree

Its cosy, intimate and the food is fabulous.  Once home to Marco Pierre White and now run by husband and wife team Simon and Rena Gueller, like most uber romantic boltholes with a Michelin star it’s not all that cheap, but it is good.  Very good.

Go for a long romantic walk on Ilkley Moor to blow out those cobwebs and work up an appetite, then stick on your best dress and tuck in. Enjoy!
