After thousands of votes and hundreds of different nominations, a pub in Kirkby Overblow has been named one of Yorkshire’s best.

The Shoulder of Mutton has been named as the region’s third favourite in the Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub 2011 awards, organised by Welcome to Yorkshire.

Just two pubs of the 200 nominated beat it to the top spot - Shibden Mill Inn in Halifax and The George and Dragon in Hudswell came first and second.

The Shoulder of Mutton will now join the top 30 pubs in the contest in a special Ale Trail guide, supported by Theakston’s brewery.

It will be available at tourist information centres and other venues including hotels, and can be ordered online at
