East Yorkshire’s Pipe and Glass Inn has been named as National Dining Pub of the Year 2015 by The Good Pub Guide.
The Michelin-starred pub restaurant, at South Dalton, near Beverley, was last year’s County Dining Pub of the Year for Yorkshire.
The Pipe and Glass is run by licensees and owners Kate and James Mackenzie. Kate, who runs front of house at the Pipe and Glass, said: “We were thrilled to be named County Dining Pub of the Year for 2014 – to take the national title for 2015 is just amazing!”
Chef James said: “We’ve always wanted the Pipe and Glass to be a great local pub that also serves fantastic food. This award shows that we’re achieving both aims. There are some fantastic pubs in the UK, and we’re delighted to bring this award to Yorkshire.”
