Estrella Damm” Gastropub Awards 2021

We are delighted to announce that for the first time we are featured in the “Estrella Damm” Gastropub Awards list. Although we did not make it into the top 50 this time, we are pleased to be included just outside the top 50. These awards are voted for by top foodies and hospitality experts, including food writers, executive chefs, celebrity chefs and top hospitality industry chefs. The voting criteria ensures the list really is decided by the industry. See for yourself what they had to say about the Hovingham Inn here.

From 17th April 2021

From Saturday 17th April we are hoping to be open for drinks & light snacks. As this service is only available ‘Al fresco’, it will be subject to the weather conditions on that day. We will be open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons until we can safely open indoors in May.

Open from Noon ~ 5pm. Seating to the rear of the pub.

Bookings will not be taken for these services. We will be offering a few of our favourite bites, including a delicious hot roast beef sandwich on Sundays. Our food can be consumed on or off the premises.

From 21st May 2021

From Friday 21st May we plan to resume indoor services. Lunch and dinner will be available. More details to follow on opening hours soon.

Bookings are now open!
