    Swan Talbot Award

    Having being nominated in the White Rose Awards for best Yorkshire Pub of 2016 along with our sister pub The Chequers, we found out a couple of months ago that we were also nominated for The Yorkshire Life traditional pub of the year!

    A fantastic achievement on its own, we were honoured to be nominated, recognising all of the hard work that our front of house staff and chefs have out in over the months and years. The awards ceremony was held at the fantastic Rudding park, Harrogate on a Monday afternoon and Pete along with Antony were joined by Yorkshire’s best restauranteurs, hoteliers and publicans enjoying a stunning meal. We were up against two more of Yorkshire’s finest traditional pubs but came out on top being crowned traditional pub of the year.

    It’s a huge award for the Swan & Talbot and we are very proud of all of the team who have made it possible!
