The Guy Fawkes Arms, Scotton, Knaresborough
The Guy Fawkes Arms has the privilege of being hailed as the place customers would recommend a thousand times over.
The gravy is something diners have said is “to die for”.
It’s not a standard roast, but instead one that is considered that little bit fancier. With starters consisting of the likes of pate and king prawn cocktail, the roast meats consist of turkey, roast sirloin and lamb shank.
Puddings are pretty fabulous too, consisting of dishes such as apple rhubarb with ginger crumble and pavlova.
Anchor Inn at Whixley, New Road, Whixley
Praised for its generous portions and the nice pub atmosphere.
There’s lamb shanks, steak and ale pie on offer, as well as the nice pub atmosphere.
There’s even lots of desserts to choose from and diners rave about the warm welcome staff always give.

Most customers find themselves rushing for a weekly fix, with one commenting: “the nicest place for carvery by far.
“We’ve visited numerous pubs in all areas of Barnsley and none of them compare to the carvery they serve at Boatmans Rest.
York Roast Co.
We couldn’t mention carveries and not mention this place.
They’ve revolutionised the roast game and it can’t be denied how much they’re loved.
The York Roast Co. serve their roasts in a wrap, but it’s no ordinary wrap.
It’s a giant Yorkshire pudding, and they can be filled with whatever you fancy.

The George Carvery, Dove Bank, Harrogate
The George is also a hotel but it isn’t just the guests who enjoy a carvery here.
Outdoor play for the kids, friendly hosts, the carvery is so popular it often sells out so it’s a good idea to get here early.
Diners go as far as to recommend the small plate as the larger portions prove to be so big.
The manager seems to be well loved, with customers eager to head back just for his excellent service.
The New Wheatsheaf, Altofts Lane, Castleford
If there’s one thing you should try here, it’s the steak pie.
Pretty much every review of the New Wheatsheaf mentions the pie, and during the pandemic they’ve offered a takeaway service.
On top of all usual trimmings, you can be treated to mash, to cauliflower cheese, to the offering of all meats an option – you don’t have to pick just one.

A Greene King pub, it’s unique from its counterparts in that it’s known for its carvery. It offers plenty of other options and not just a roast alone.
