Located in the heart of Skelton, Cumbria, the Dog & Gun Inn, led by the unassuming and talented Chef Ben Queen-Fryer, is a culinary gem that effortlessly marries tradition with innovation. Awarded a coveted Michelin star in 2022 and successfully retaining it in 2023, this establishment thrives on teamwork, with Ben humbly acknowledging the collective effort. The rustic charm of the pub harks back to a bygone era, making it a rarity in todays contemporary Britain. It’s thanks to culinary heroes like Ben and his dedicated team that such establishments are revitalized. The menu, a testament to their commitment, seamlessly blends classic and modern flavors, leaving patrons delighted.
