The Altisidora, Bishop Burton
A welcome outpost on the road from Hull to York, the Altisidora takes its name from a three-year-old chestnut filly which won the 1813 St. Leger Stakes at Doncaster (the owner, one Squire Watt, having heralded from Bishop Burton). The building dates from the first decade of the 19th century, and is Grade II listed, with a separate, raised restaurant area and a raised lounge area, although food is served throughout. The pub is popular locally and with those passing through, primarily for its cuisine. We defy any carnivores to resist the rib-eye steak on offer, or the generous portions of (we presume) locally-caught battered haddock. The beer is (somewhat perversely) mainly of the southern variety. The location is very pleasant, rural and opposite a village pond. Aficionados of the excellent local brews may prefer to continue to nearby Beverley or York, where hostelries abound, but for the discerning diner this is perhaps one of the best in Yorkshire. Oh, and England beat Australia in the Rugby World Cup when we were there.
