Estimated read time 2 min read


A Yorkshire pub has been voted the winner of Best Sunday Lunch in the UK for the second time.

The Queen o’ t’ owd Thatch in South Milford, near Selby, North Yorks, received the Observer Food Monthly gong for Best Sunday Lunch 2022.

It’s the second time the pub restaurant has scooped the gong as it also won the category in 2018 prior to the pandemic.

Owners Kirsty Cheetham, 42, and Annie French, 51, picked up the prestigious trophy at Freemason’s Hall in London on October 13.

Chef Kirsty told the Observer she came from a long line of family with a connection to the local pubs.

She told the paper: “I love pubs. I love country pubs. I love community pubs. Good British food is exciting.”

Kirsty and pub manager Annie’s dog-friendly pub boasts its own patio area, and hosts cocktail masterclasses as well as cheese and wine nights, Leeds Live reports.

The spot has become popular for its two-for-one cocktails including Aperol Spritz, Chambord Royale, pomegranate and rose fizz, and a pink grapefruit gin and tonic.

The Sunday lunch menu includes a range of popular roast dinners including roast rump of beef, slow roast shoulder of lamb, roast loin of pork, roast turkey breast, or vegetarian haggis.

This is accompanied by roast potatoes, a Yorkshire pudding, seasonal greens, lemon and thyme roasted carrots, cauliflower cheese, and gravy. Stuffing can also be requested.

The roast dinners range from £10 to £17.50 – dependent on the meat and if it is a large or small meal.

Speaking about the win on social media, the owners Kirsty and Annie said: “We were voted winners again.

“For the second time our fabulous customers made the effort to vote in number, and we received the Best Sunday Lunch accolade at the Observer Food Monthly awards.

“We’re not gonna lie, the last year has been a struggle, one which post-Covid has taken us by surprise. But by sticking to our guns, and with the support of a hard working, although depleted team, here we are.

“A huge thank you to the team and to all who voted. We really needed some good news.”
