We are thrilled to announce that The Carpenters Arms came third in Yorkshire’s favourite pub announced at The Great Yorkshire Show on Tuesday 11th July.
A record number of votes were cast in this year’s competition, leading to 15 pubs being shortlisted rather than the usual 12.
The competition, which is run by Welcome to Yorkshire in partnership with the Yorkshire Post and sponsored by Theakstons, saw the public nominate 700 pubs in total.
Thank you to everyone that voted.
Congratulations to The White Swan that came first and The Royal Oak that came second.
The top 30 pubs will feature in Welcome to Yorkshire’s Ale Trail. Thousands of copies of which will be distributed around tourist destinations across Yorkshire.
