The Pipe and Glass really is a beautiful pub. It is cosy, warm and welcoming and everything you would expect from a Michelin starred pub in the Countryside. We enjoyed a glass of wine and nibbles in the comfortable lounge before being taken to our table in the main restaurant. I understand we were dining early, however I did find it odd that we were the only ones in the restaurant throughout our entire meal! There were guests arriving as we left at 8pm so perhaps this would be the time to book if you were looking for more of an atmosphere. It didn't put us off though and we loved having the restaurant to ourselves - it was almost like a private dining experience!
The menu changes regularly and there is a daily specials blackboard available too. The real standout dish for me though was my wild garlic soup - I've never tasted anything like it and would travel to The Pipe and Glass again just for another bowl!
Our final bill was £67 for two courses for two people including a glass of wine each which considering we enjoyed some of the finest lamb and beef available in the area was a fantastic deal. I often think Michelin starred cuisine has unfair preconceptions that it is expensive or stuffy - whilst this may sometimes be the case, the Pipe and Glass has proven this doesn't have to be the way.
The Pipe and Glass is the first Michelin starred place I would feel more than comfortable taking our children too and at just £6.50 for a children's main course, there is no reason why we won't pop in during our next trip to Yorkshire.
Have you ever taken your children to a Michelin starred restaurant? Are there any you would recommend?
