Goodman: head chef at the Duke of Cumberland Arms in Henley, West Sussex

The Duke of Cumberland Arms in Henley, West Sussex, has been named Pub of the Year in the Good Food Guide 2012 Editor's Choice Awards.

 

Simon Goodman, head chef/patron of the freehold, was named Pub Chef of the Year in the PMA's Great British Pub Food Awards 2010.

 

"I was very, very impressed with the pub from the time of booking," said guide editor Elizabeth Carter.

 

"It is not formal, a nice, friendly pub with efficient, friendly staff and a can-do attitude. It does very, very good food without veering off into the realms of fancy restaurant whips and foams."I would encourage other publicans to go there and see how its done."

 

In more good news for pubs three Michelin-starred pubs were listed in the Good Food Guide's Top 50 Restaurants.

 

Tom Kerridge's Hand & Flowers in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, Steve Harris' Sportsman in Seasalter, Kent and Nick Parkinson's Royal Oak in Paley Street, Berkshire, headed up in the kitchen by Dominic Chapman.

 

Heston Blumenthal's Michelin-starred Fat Duck in Bray, Berkshire, was awarded first place in the Top 50 list.
