Cheers! Bull Inn is county's top pub

I'll drink to that ... Gil Richardson
receives the best pub award.
West Tanfield's Bull Inn has been named Yorkshire’s favourite pub at the Great Yorkshire Show after a record number of votes.

Record-breaking Yorkshire rowers Janette Benaddi and Helen Butters were joined by cricket legend Geoffrey Boycott in announcing the win.

A total 18,000 people voted in total for this year’s competition which saw Durham Ox, Crayke come second and Fairfax Arms, Gilling East third.

The competition, run by tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire, saw the public nominate 700 pubs in total.

Bull Inn owner Gil Richardson said “It’s incredible and it’s a testament to our locals and regulars who have supported us.”

Welcome to Yorkshire chief executive Sir Gary Verity said: “The record number of votes shows how passionate people are about Yorkshire’s pubs.

“I’d like to congratulate The Bull Inn on being named Yorkshire’s Favourite. There were some incredibly strong contenders and every pub shortlisted should be proud. Yorkshire’s pubs are truly fantastic and add to our rich heritage for which the region is renowned”.

The top 30 most popular pubs will feature in Welcome to Yorkshire’s new Ale Trail leaflet, which will be distributed around tourist destinations in Yorkshire.
