No, not the Ryedale Rumble but who knows, one day we might be.
You will however be riding past the best restaurant in the world when you take part in the 2018 Ryedale Rumble. The Black Swan at Oldstead has been given the award by the online reviews website TripAdvisor – the first time a UK venue has won the accolade.
The restaurant, owned by Tommy and James Banks and their family, holds a Michelin star and four AA rosettes and just pipped Raymond Blanc’s Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in New Milton, Oxfordshire, which was second place in the world.
Commenting on the news, Tommy Banks said:
We are so happy with the news and would like to thank all of the TripAdvisor users who have rated their experience with us so highly, and recognised the hard work each member of the team puts into every element of running The Black Swan. It really is everyone in our fantastic team who has made this happen”.
So after completing the Ryedale Rumble go on – treat yourself! You’ll deserve it!
