The Feathers Inn, Stocksfield, has won Best British Roast Dinner 2017.

The pub won over the competition's judges with its locally sourced and foraged ingredients, wide selection of sides and dedication to catering for different dietary requirements.

Food writer Charles Campion, one of the judges (pictured below with The Feathers team), said: "The roast dinner is a signature dish for the whole nation, this is Britain at its very best.

"At The Feathers they care about their roast dinners and it shows. Yorkshire puddings like savoury clouds; dark rich gravy; perfectly cooked meat from local farms; and shrapnel roasties. We all deserve a local like The Feathers, and we all deserve a roast dinner this good."
