The award-winning Pipe and Glass Inn, based in South Dalton, near Beverley, has added the prestigious Cask Marque to its string of awards.

The accreditation is another accolade to add to the establishment, which is Yorkshire’s first pub to hold both a Michelin star and Cask Marque accreditation. In addition owner, James Mackenzie, is the current Yorkshire Life chef of the year and Deliciously Yorkshire champion.

Each year Cask Marque, which is an independent non-profit organisation, visits British pubs and bars to ensure the quality within the establishment is of the highest standard.

The Pipe and Glass Inn was assessed by Britain’s first female cask beer inspector Annabel Smith. After a rigorous assessment including checks on beer temperature, appearance, aroma and taste, The Pipe and Glass passed with flying colours.

Phil Bebbington national account manager for The Black Sheep Brewery said: “We are extremely proud to have sponsored The Pipe and Glass Inn to achieve its Cask Marque award.”
