There’s something quite comforting about going to a country pub for Sunday lunch. The tradition of a roast, the smell of a roaring fire, no plans to hurry anywhere afterwards, it’s all rather a splendid affair and more so when it’s cold out!
Recently we visited The Dunsforth, a truly superb gastro-pub in North Yorkshire.
The only pub in Yorkshire to hold a Michelin Bib Gourmand Award, owners Paul and Janine Cunliffe have a simple ethic of serving quality food using the best ingredients. The proof is in the pudding (oh Dad joke, I’m sorry … do I leave it in?).
For me it all starts with the wine, a place has got to get their chardonnay right – it was perfect! Four of us had three courses and other than the edge of the beef being a little tough, were completely satisfied. The starters were incredible; my tomatoes with sorbet and goats cheese was delightfully unusual!
As you’ve probably gathered, I’m no food blogger, but us Braithwaite’s do enjoy our food and would absolutely return here owing to our excellent first visit.
You can visit The Dunsforth Website here (I think they’re developing a new one at present but the basic info’s there).
