Other Yorkshire entries are Michael O'Hare's Leeds restaurant The Man Behind The Curtain (29th), The Angel at Hetton, near Skipton (66th), The Burlington at The Devonshire Arms on the Bolton Abbey estate (69th) and Andrew Pern's The Star Inn at Harome (76th).

This is what it's like to run one of the most traditional pubs in the Yorkshire Dales
The Black Swan, The Star Inn and The Man Behind The Curtain all have Michelin stars, but Yorkshire's other Michelin-starred eateries - The Pipe and Glass at South Dalton, near Beverley, and The Yorke Arms near Pateley Bridge - do not appear in Square Meal's guide.

Tables at The Man Behind The Curtain have been known to book out five months in advance, while The Angel is widely credited as being the country's first gastropub, and since 2018 has had Michelin-starred chef Michael Wignall at the helm.
