You had us at savoury clouds… - William Murray

When renowned food critic Charles Campion raves about a pub then you know you’re onto a winner – the Best British Roast Dinner 2017 winner to be exact. This week, The Feathers Inn in Stocksfield was crowned with the title that pubs up and down the country have been vying for.

Charles said: “At The Feathers Inn they care about their roast dinners and it shows. Yorkshire puddings like savoury clouds; dark rich gravy; perfectly cooked meat from local farms; and shrapnel roasties. We all deserve a local like The Feathers, and we all deserve a roast dinner this good.”

Rhian Cradock, head chef and owner, said: “We’re delighted to have won Best British Roast Dinner 2017. It’s a monumental achievement and we’re enormously proud of our talented team for winning this award, their contribution has been invaluable.”

One of the criteria for entry was evidence of careful sourcing which The Feathers Inn has in spades. “We are a free house that cares about the welfare of livestock and the condition in which they are reared. By using local produce, we take into consideration animal welfare whilst also improving the flavour and taste of the food dramatically. We invest in the region by using locally sourced suppliers. It is important to us where food comes from and that it is sustainable, with a reduction in ‘food miles’”.

And the win couldn’t come at a better time as The Feather Inn is celebrating its 10 year anniversary. Congratulations guys! Here’s to another 10 of serving the best roast.
