The 14th century thatched inn, which holds a Michelin star and serves robust British fare with classical French touches, including pan-fried foie gras with black pudding and cider reduction, and North Sea halibut with pickled lemon purée and cod’s roe, is headed by chef Andrew Pern. The pub said it was “absolutely thrilled” to receive the award, having risen from third on the 2016 list.
“The Star’s name has become synonymous across the country with a dedication to fine produce and playful but refined cooking,” say Top 50 Gastropubs. “No foams or airs (edible or the put-on kind) will emerge from the Star’s kitchen. Only the best Yorkshire produce, cooked to perfection.”
