A spokesperson for the Great Inns of Britain group, which includes Shibden Mill Inn and The Blue Lion at East Witton, said: "Considering the incredible difficulties faced by this industry in 2020, these awards are a true testament to the hard work and passion of the people who run these establishments.

"With lockdowns, restrictions and tier systems being introduced from every direction, all of these pubs have had to adapt and adjust at speed to meet these new requirements and ultimately, keep their loyal customers safe. The awards highlight that even in the midst of a pandemic, these pubs continue to strive for greatness and never let the standard of service slip."
