James Mackenzie's Pipe and Glass won Dining Pub of the Year
The Good Pub Guide has listed its top food pubs for each county.

The Pipe and Glass in South Dalton, Yorkshire, was named overall Dining Pub of the Year

Chef-owner James Mackenzie said: “It was a complete surprise and it’s great news for the pub and for the area. “

The Pipe and Glass was also listed in the Good Food Guide’s inaugural Top 50 UK Pubs and Mackenzie said it was important to him that it was recognised as a pub.

He said: “I like to think that we are the Great British pub. I want people to feel comfortable coming in for a pint and for the bar to be a welcoming and inviting place.” 

Mackenzie said his plans for the next year included adding three more letting rooms to the pub to supplement the two current apartments. He said a kitchen garden would also be developed in the spring.
