When it comes to the best places to eat in a faraway place, the locals are who to ask and the Guardian in the U.K. has just revealed where readers think the best cafes and restaurants in the countryside are for travelers.
Starting in Northumberland, visitors should head to L Robson & Sons Smokery and Restaurant, says readers.
“The family has been smoking fish for generations and, though the original 'herring girls' have been replaced by machinery, the smoking process is unchanged. Boasting that it cures “anything that comes from the sea,” its most famous product is the kipper,” reported the Guardian.

“With a monthly food market, a separate farmer’s market, independent shops and producers, a cookery school, and two thriving food and drink festivals a year, it is no surprise that this lovely market town is fast establishing itself as the food capital of the north,” said the paper.
On the Isle of Skye, the Oyster Shed at Talisker Whisky Distillery is the place to be.
“This little place overlooks Loch Harport and the Cuillin mountains, with plenty of seating outdoors (opened and covered) to enjoy the panoramic views. The shop sells fresh and smoked produce, including wood pigeon and mallard, but the seafood takeaway is the star,” readers report.
And cheese is always one of the best ways to indulge. If you agree, head to Sussex.
“On a walk through Sussex woodland, we discovered the Milk Churn in Rudgwick. Run by Bookham Harrison, maker of Sussex Charmer cheese, its star is served between doorsteps of white toast, grilled to perfection with optional sidekicks like ham or red onion,” said the Guardian.
