The UK’s Top 50 Gastropubs have been revealed – and five are in Yorkshire

Time to start making some bookings.

The Top 50 gastropubs in the UK have been revealed, and it’s safe to say we’re well and truly spoilt here in Yorkshire.

This year’s prestigious Estrella Damn Gastropubs awards, also known as the ‘pub Oscars’, took place this week – and five Yorkshire pubs have made it onto the list.

Coming in at number 5 is The Star Inn (Harome, North Yorkshire), a critically acclaimed Michelin-star pub that has had a turbulent few years after burning down in 2020 and reopening only in late 2021.

This certainly hasn’t stopped the pub winning numerous accolades since, and it’s not hard to see why with when it’s described as “the perfect country pub” by the prestigious awards.

At number 13 is The Angel (Hetton, Skipton), praised for its “pub food reimagined in a cosy environment that looks out across stunning landscapes.”

At number 17 is The Shibden Mill Inn (Halifax, Yorkshire), which has held a spot on the list since 2020 and also snapped the title of Best Pub for Food at the 2022 Great British Pub Awards.

The Pipe and Glass (South Dalton, Yorkshire) has been placed at number 27 where guests can dine on “hearty and moreish dishes only, cooked from the heart.”

And the final Yorkshire pub to feature in the top 50 list is The Abbey Inn (Byland, North York Moors) at number 37, the third venue from The Great British Menu’ winner and Michelin-starred chef Tommy Banks.
