In Yorkshire, we love our roasts, and with all the fresh local produce on our doorstep, it’s no surprise that our pubs and restaurants have shelves of awards and testimonies. And, this quaint Yorkshire village of South Milford is the newest to be given the title best Sunday Lunch by The Observer.
The Queen O’ T’Owd Thatch found in between Leeds and Selby has won for the second time previously winning back in 2018.
Voting for winners in eight different categories is public voted for its winners. Four judges including Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett, Great British Menu presenter Andi Oliver and chef Tom Kerridge, food reviewers Jay Rayner and Grace Dent.
The pub spoke about their win on social media, saying: “We were voted winners again! For the second time our fabulous customers made the effort to vote in number, and we received the Best Sunday Lunch accolade at the Observer Food Monthly awards last night.“We’re not gonna lie, the last year has been a struggle, one which post COVID has taken us by surprise.
“But by sticking to our guns, and with the support of a hard working, although depleted team, here we are. A huge thank you to the team and to all who voted. We really needed some good news.”
The winners of all the awards will be announced in October edition of the Observer Food Monthly.
I don’t know about you, but on the days that I do commit to using my legs for more than going to the fridge, it has to end with a full tummy and a pint in my hand. It’s just the rule. It’s almost like a personal transaction, the perfect antidote to exercise. And I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one. If you ask us – and we are the experts here – it’s the only way to finish an adventure in the Dales.
It’d almost be sacrilege to not, actually. Which is exactly why we’ve rounded up some of the best places in the Yorkshire Dales for a proper pub lunch – to make sure each and every one of you does as God intended in his own county: eat well, and drink well.
