The Michelin-starred fine dining restaurant has won the title of Gastropub of the Year at this year’s National Restaurant Awards.
Another Hour for the Cabinet
The Angel at Heaton, near Skipton, won the coveted title at the much-awaited awards show in London yesterday. It’s another hour for Chef Michael Vignoll’s already overcrowded cabinet that included a total of four AA rosettes and silvers at last year’s National Restaurant Awards.

The restaurant serving technical, contemporary fine dining ranked 12th overall in the UK. The awards described Engel’s cuisine as “one of the most inventive cooking and immaculate platings in the country at the moment”.
The Angel, Britain’s first gastropub
The Angel, considered the UK’s first Gastropub, said today: “It’s absolutely wonderful to be ranked 12th on the Top 100 UK Restaurants of the National Restaurant Awards along with Gastropub of the Year. Thank you to everyone who voted for us , it means the world.
Number one this year was Ynishir, North Wales, followed by Moor Hall, Lancashire and Bratt, London.
Other Yorkshire restaurants that made it to London’s restaurant-dominated Top 100 were The Black Swan at Oldstead, near Thirsk (32nd); The Man Behind the Curtain, Leeds (61st) and Zorro, Sheffield (77th) and Le Cochon Avegle, York (94th).
The Michelin-starred Black Swan run by Tommy Banks and his family won the TripAdvisor best restaurant in the world in 2017. It serves a tasting menu of dishes that include family-grown ingredients or locally caught fish.
Upcycle on the ground floor of Crinkle in Sheffield’s hip Kelham Island
The Michelin-starred Man Behind the Curtain, run by Michael O’Hare, serves up a delicious menu of avant-garde cuisine in a surreal setting. Jro (meaning ‘earth’ in Old Norse) is based on upcycled shipping containers on the ground floor of Krinkle in Sheffield’s hip Kelham Island. It serves Scandinavian and Japanese fusion.
