The Top 50​ list will be revealed in full on Monday 22 January 2024 at the current number one Parkers Arms, Newton-in-Bowland, Lancashire and will be revealed on Instagram throughout the day.

The ceremony will also named the specialist award winners of the Chef of the Year, Highest New Entry and Highest Climber categories as well as the brand new Estrella Damm Sustainable Pub of the Year award alongside the highly anticipated One to Watch.

In the run up to the event, the 51 to 100 will also be revealed on Instagram​ from Monday 8 January 2024.

Chef-patron of Parkers Stosie Madi​ outlined how it felt to be named the best gastropub in the UK.

She said: “I was not expecting it, it was the most unexpected thing. Not because I don’t think we deserve it but because being in the Top 50 list is already a huge win.

“Over the years, most of our wonderful achievements have been because the Top 50 has always taken note of us.”

Best offerings

She said she felt truly honoured and beyond happy to be number one of the list.

William Reed, which owns Top 50 Gastropubs, group director Chris Lowe said: “We are thrilled to see such a strong list of contenders.

“The Top 50 Gastropubs provides a platform for food-lovers to explore the very best offerings across the UK and we can’t wait to unveil the full list in order at the Parkers Arms in January.”
