North Yorks pubs get their point across as competition finalists

North Yorkshire drinking holes dominate the running for this year's Yorkshire Favourite Pub contest.

A shortlist of 12 has been drawn up and go head to head to be crowned winner at the Great Yorkshire Show on Tuesday July 12.

North Yorkshire's standard bearers are the Blue Lion, East Witton; Bull Inn, West Tanfield; Duke of York Inn, Gate Helmsley; Durham Ox, Crayke; Fairfax Arms, Gilling East; Queen O'T'Owd Thatch, South Milford and Woolly Sheep Inn, Skipton

The contest, run by tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire, saw the public nominate 700 pubs with 10,000 votes . Voting via www.yorkshire.com/pub closes on June 27.

The competition was first launched in 2011 to help promote the region's variety of pubs and the top 30 nominated pubs will once again feature in Welcome to Yorkshire’s Ale Trail leaflet.

Welcome to Yorkshire chief executive Sir Gary Verity said: “The public has really got behind this competition yet again and the pride and passion for Yorkshire’s pubs is clear to see.

“Yorkshire is known for its rich heritage and breathtaking landscapes but our welcoming collection of pubs are just as important in our bid to sell Yorkshire to the world. Best of luck to the 12 finalists and we look forward to the winner collecting their title at the Great Yorkshire Show in July.”
