Warrendale Wagyu

Warrendale Wagyu

At Provenance Inns, we aim to provide our guests with the finest locally sourced produce.

That is why we have collaborated with Warrendale Wagyu to make our Black and Blue Yorkshire Wagyu Burger, Harrogate Blue, Skinny Fries, Black Sheep Beer Battered Onion Rings, Yorkshire Relish & Pickles.

Warrendale Wagyu from York was established in 2017 and is one of the largest wagyu herds in the UK, consisting of both full blood and cross bred wagyu beef. Wagyu beef is a softer, more flavoursome meat and contains a higher percentage of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, making it a healthier product as well.
