We love a good roast here at The Yorkshireman. Not that that should come as a surprise to any Yorkshire folk out there. There is nothing quite like a gravy-soaked dinner to make you feel whole – and there has been a fair few of them over the Christmas period let us tell you.
It comes as no surprise to us that three Yorkshire restaurants made the Roast Top 10 List for 2021 via the social media channel @RateGoodRoasts, who were clearly impressed by what God’s Own Country had to offer.
Chopping Block, York
in 10th place was Chopping Block in York with 85%. It rated highly for its meat, Yorkshire pudding and value scoring 10 out of 10, which shows they were clearly impressed. With the veg and the gravy pulling the score down with 5 and 6 marks respectively.
Shears Yard, Leeds
It came in 9th place with an impressive 85% and full marks out of 10 for both venue, Yorkshire pudding and drinks categories. Sides and gravy only scored 7 but shows that they were clearly impressed by what they tried.
The White Horse, Church Fenton
The Highest ranking Sunday roast was The White Horse in joint 5th place, which had a fantastic 89% rating. The highlights were the vegetables and value, which gained 10 out of 10. But with 9s and 8s for everything else you’d be hardpressed to find anything wrong with this restaurants roast – makes you proud to be Yorkshire.
Just over the Pennines, The Bull & Bear in Manchester, achieved the top spot with a staggering 95% rating overall, getting top scores for the quality of its meat, potato and the restaurant’s service, drinks, sides, and the setting.
