If you and your family are enjoying a delightful day out in Leeds soaking up all the culture and excitement this fantastic city has to offer or you’re spending a reinvigorating weekend breathing in the natural beauty of the nearby Yorkshire Dales, you’ll no doubt want to complement your visit with a memorable pit stop at one of the county’s premier pubs.

The Queen o’ t’owd Thatch, known fondly by locals as The Thack, is such a pub. Situated in the charming village of South Milford in North Yorkshire, this classic country pub combines everything that makes Great British pubs so great; tons of character, a peaceful setting, a fantastic selection of ale, beer, wine and cocktails, and some of the best pub grub around. What more could you want?

Escape the city and chill out within the warm and welcoming walls of The Thatch. Run by a chef and a gardener, this wonderful pub is a popular haunt with locals who regularly flock here for the great seasonal menus featuring dishes full of flavour and prepared with some of the finest home-grown ingredients, with the beef coming from local family-owned butchers.

Boasting a brilliant selection of regularly changing innovative dishes alongside more traditional pub favourites, there’s always something exciting and seasonal for you to tuck into here. The Thack even picked up the Observer Food Monthly’s award for the best Sunday lunch last year, perhaps the most coveted title a pub can pick up – after all, what traditional, charming countryside pub doesn’t want to be known for serving up the very best Sunday roasts in the region?

If you’re not fortunate enough to be able to visit on a Sunday, their food offering throughout the week is just as fantastic. Begin with delicious starters such as crispy duck egg with treacle and Port dressing or Daiquiri-cured salmon before moving onto incredible and indulgent mains like the butcher’s steak or the pheasant stuffed with chestnut and cranberry stuffing. Their classic fish and chips is as perfect as this popular dish comes and if you’re a veggie, you’ll simply swoon over their flavoursome kidney bean and sweet potato burger or celeriac steak with onion bhaji.

Whether you’re visiting for their famous Sunday lunches, to sample an exciting cocktail off of their eclectic cocktail list, or for one of their special tasting events such as their wine club, cocktail masterclasses, or cheese and wine evenings, The Queen o’ t’wod Thatch is truly one of the highlights of North Yorkshire’s traditional country pub scene.
