The Dick Hudsons, part of the Vintage Inns collection, located on Otley Road, recently reopened its doors following a major refurbishment, bringing a beautiful new look to this countryside local.
As a thank you to the surrounding areas for their support, the landlord of the Dick Hudsons, James Burke, held a vote amongst the team to elect a ‘Top Taster’ who would be invited to taste new menu items, help with bar selections and provide honest opinions and recommendations for the pub.
With the final votes cast, James Burke has officially named Keith Hardwick Trotter as the Dick Hudsons’ official ‘Top Taster’, and is looking forward to showcasing all the pubs’ new and exciting features to him, and working together to discover his recommendations on behalf of the local area and what the community would like to see from the pub in the future.
The pub oozes rural charm with its refreshed new exterior showcasing its original rustic character. The picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring its new menu, which it hopes will excite guests and encourage them to while away many hours in their cosy surroundings.
Visitors to the Dick Hudsons can enjoy the pub throughout the year, from roaring fires in winter to looking out across the moors, whilst enjoying the long summer nights. They can also sample the amazing selection of gins, ales and wines on offer behind the bar and try out some of the freshly prepared British dishes from the new menu, and the Dick Hudsons hopes that the new look is a welcome change within the local community.
James Burke, landlord of the Dick Hudsons, said: "We wanted the new look to provide guests with a cosy pub where they can enjoy dinner, have a few drinks after a long country walk with their four-legged friends or simply to relax and read the Sunday paper.
“The Dick Hudsons is in a fantastic countryside location with views across the moors, and we have an amazing support network around us, so we hope that all of our guests, both regulars and first-timers love the transformation.”
The Dick Hudsons celebrated the reopening with a brand-new menu certain to tickle the taste buds of guests, with new dishes including Black Pearl Scallops seared with black pudding on minted pea puree with crispy bacon to start, British Venison Steak with spinach stuffed portobello mushroom, asparagus, dauphinoise potato & a red wine jus, and a host of mouth-watering puddings including a warming Sticky toffee & apple pudding.
To celebrate its new-look, the Dick Hudsons is holding a ‘Taste of Vintage’ event where guests will be able to sample a selection of the new dishes, chat to James and the team, as well as celebrate with a free glass of bubbly. The event will be taking place on Thursday 16th November from 7pm.
