English classical cooking at its very best served by pleasant people in a spotless, refurbished Yorkshire inn. What more could anyone want? On that particular Sunday we couldn't think of anything.
There was absolutely nothing fancy about. It was just the perfect roast (slowroasted silverside) and three veg with roast potatoes, followed by a peerless apple crumble and custard.
Perversely perhaps, what made the Horseshoe Inn at West Rounton special was its very ordinariness. It's a small, simple, village pub re-opened after a number of years closed and on the Sunday we called it laid on a superb traditional lunch.
Our 2013 stand-out destination, the only recipient of the coveted four 10 scores.
