Food and Drink
We love delicious food and we love sharing it with you, winter or summer, rain or shine. YSP food is responsibly sourced, seasonal, freshly made, and super-tasty.
Whether you’re an omnivore, pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan, YSP food is always a pleasure.
To coincide with Wakefield Rhubarb Festival, pop into any of our food and drink outlets on 17 and 18 February to enjoy homemade rhubarb inspired sweet treats, hot puddings and delicious rhubarb jam made in our onsite kitchen. Book a table at The Weston to sample our new seasonal menu and take in the view whilst sipping a rhubarb gin fizz.
