Inspiration

White Rose Awards 2016

Applications are sought from any pub which is confident in their high quality offer to customers. The award aims to acknowledge and showcase the variety of Yorkshire pubs, and seeks to recognise the one which most effectively represents the best of Yorkshire to its customers.

The Black Hat

The fine looking terrace, craft beers and cleverly concocted cocktails alongside some great tunes creates the perfect soundtrack to your weekend.

As well as providing the best and freshest Yorkshire food, The Chequers also brings on special rotational brews and is constantly searching for new wines and spirits that are different to what is widely available.

The Coach & Horses
