THE best roast dinner in Britain can be found at a Stocksfield pub.
To win the fiercely contested title, The Feathers Inn, at Hedley-on-the-Hill, saw off competition from hundreds of pubs across the country.
A judging panel led by renowned food critic Charles Campion were impressed by the Feathers Inn’s roast, with locally reared beef and quality sides such as braised red cabbage, honey glazed parsnips, cauliflower cheese and parsley and mint glazed carrots.
Charles Campion said: “The roast dinner is a signature dish for the whole nation, this is Britain at its very best. At The Feathers 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.”
Head chef and owner of Feathers Inn, Rhian Cradock, said: “It’s a monumental achievement and a real crowning jewel in the year The Feathers celebrates its 10th anniversary. Our roast is a real team effort and we’re enormously proud of our talented team for winning this award.”
