A SOUTH Yorkshire pub has revealed the secret ingredient in its Yorkshire puddings on Yorkshire Day – Lancashire ale!

Chefs at The Old Horns Inn, High Bradfield, owned by Lancashire-based brewer Thwaites, use Lancaster Bomber in the batter mix for classic Yorkshire Puddings and fish dishes.

The Old Horns was recently named Pub of the Year and also scooped the top food pub accolade at the Thwaites Awards for Excellence 2011.

The pub is run by John Wyke with a team of 15 staff. John runs the pub with partner Cassie Hirst.

Licensee John said: “We’re a busy food pub and on an average week sell at least 800 Yorkshire puddings. Quality is extremely important and we’ve found that nothing gets a better rise for our Yorkshire puddings than a splash of Thwaites Lancaster Bomber ale.”
