We extremely proud that we have two of our venues, The Chequers and Swan & Talbot nominated in this years White Rose Awards in the ‘Yorkshire Pub’ category.

It follows on from last year when we had The Chequers in the running for ‘Best Pub’ category. On that occasion we were pipped to the post but this year we’re looking forward to having two of our venues competing for the award.

The White Rose Awards are the largest celebration of tourism excellence in the UK, rewarding the very best in Yorkshire. With an independent voting panel visiting venues over a 6 week period the awards are announced at a glittering awards ceremony later in the year. You can see who we’re competing against on the White Rose Awards Website here.

It comes as our newest venue, the Duke of York Inn, is in the final 12 of the Welcome to Yorkshire ‘Yorkshire’s Favourite pub’ award. Voting for the final round closes on June 27th and you can cast your votes on the Welcome to Yorkshire Website.
