5 of the best northern Gastropubs according to the Estrella Damm Top 50

Confidentials    2 years ago

The Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropubs were announced on 24 January in an award ceremony at Escape to Freight Island in Manchester.

The overall list gives a great representation of some of the best gastropubs in the UK, but the north was rightly celebrated, especially in the top 5, with the Parkers Arms in Clitheroe coming in a close second to the Unruly Pig in Woodbridge, Suffolk.

The Parkers Arms tweeted its delight after an eventful day:

North Yorkshire spot, The Angel at Hetton came in at number 4, with Chef Patron Michael Wignall scooping the prestigious Chef of the Year award. This comes after it was crowned Estrella Damm’s Restaurant of the Year in a separate event last year.

Here are 5 of Estrella Damm’s best Gastropubs in the north this year:

  • The Parker's Arms is a homely pub serving superb modern European food in Newton-in-Bowland in Lancashire.

    The White Swan at Fence


    Some folk in the village still refer to The White Swan at Fence as The Mucky Duck and you can still order a pint of Timothy Taylor’s at its very pubby bar. But over recent years The Swan has established itself as a destination fine-dining spot thanks to young chef Tom Parker from up the road in Burnley.
