A Crewe pub has launched the ultimate hybrid dessert this Christmas, combining a festive favourite with a Yorkshire pudding.
Rookery Wood Farm on Weston Road, Crewe, is known for its filled Yorkshire puddings, but this year has gone one step further and combined the humble mince pie with a Yorkshire for an unusual festive dessert.
The unique creation is made up of a hot mince pie sitting in a crispy Yorkshire pudding, drizzled with icing, dusted with icing sugar, and served with custard.
Sean Kelley, general manager at Rookery Wood Farm, said: "There's no time quite like Christmas to gather the family and feast together -- and no festive spread would be complete without a mince pie or two!
"Our filled Yorkshire puddings are always a hit with our guests, but usually we're encouraging diners to pack them full of succulent meats and seasonal vegetables.
"This Christmas we wanted to combine the classic Yorkie pud with a seasonal sweet treat to create something truly spectacular, which also tastes delicious.
"We're not shy of wacky and wonderful food combinations here at the Rookery Wood Farm, and we hope our guests are as excited as we are to try our new seasonal dish -- we're sure they'll love it!"
