Popular drinking and dining pub The Star @ Sancton has won the award for ‘Best Local Menu’ at the inaugural East Yorkshire Local Food Network (EYLFN) Awards.

The awards aim to recognise the very best of the region’s food and drink offering, and The Star was shortlisted against some stiff competition from well known eateries across the area.

Ben and Lindsey Cox, the husband-and-wife team who own and run The Star, have always prided themselves on using fresh, local, seasonal ingredients.

Ben grows herbs, fruit and vegetables in his kitchen garden, and sources other ingredients from Yorkshire-based farmers, growers and suppliers.

His menus change with the seasons and clearly highlight the provenance of the ingredients.

A delighted Ben said: “We are really pleased to have won one of the first ever East Yorkshire Local Food Network Awards, it’s fantastic to receive recognition at a regional level.”

The EYLFN awards ceremony were held on 21 October at Beverley Tickton Grange.
