Praised for its “perfectly cooked meats from local farms,” The Feathers Inn (Stocksfield) has been crowned the national winner of Best British Roast Dinner 2017.

As well as taking home the £10,000 worth of PR prize, the pub also received high appraisal from the judging panel, including chef and restaurateur Mark Sargeant, and food critic Charles Campion.

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, Rhian Cradock, commented: “We’re delighted to have won Best British Roast Dinner 2017. 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, their contribution has been invaluable.”

The four regional winners (The Limping Fox, Thames Ditton; The Boat Inn, Birdingbury; Kyloe Restaurant & Grill, Edinburgh; and Hare & Hounds, Cowbridge) will also each receive £2,500 of PR – to help champion the British delicacy.

Now in its sixth year, the competition coincides with British Roast Dinner Week (24 September – 1 October 2017,) to “inspire pubs to serve a roast every day of the week.”
