Every year the editors of the Good Pub Guide take the opportunity to rate the very finest Dining Pubs across Great Britain. The rise of the Dining Pub over the past 20 years has been one of the key features of the industry – and here we celebrate the very finest right across the country.
VALUE PUB OF THE YEAR 2020
It’s tricky to keep food prices down and yet keep meals interesting (rather than just offering sausages and chips). The Top Ten Value Pubs that have managed this are the Digby Tap in Sherborne (Dorset), Yew Tree at Lower Wield (Hampshire), Red Lion in Preston (Hertfordshire), Church Inn at Uppermill (Lancashire), Dipton Mill Inn at Diptomill (Northumbria), Rose & Crown in Oxford (Oxfordshire), Old Castle in Bridgnorth (Shropshire), Queen Victoria at Priddy (Somerset), Blue Boar in Aldbourne (Wiltshire) and Crown & Trumpet in Broadway (Worcestershire). For its proper main courses and very fair prices, the Dipton Mill Inn at Diptonmill is our Value Pub of the Year 2020.
