A further six restaurants have been added to the Michelin Guide for Great Britain and Ireland this month

After publishing The Michelin Guide for Great Britain and Ireland 2022 in February, the guide also announced six additions to its digital guide (which you can access here) in July - Bath Priory, BathGrace and Savour, Hampton in ArdenParadise Café, Harrogate; Manifest, Liverpool; Upstairs at the George, City of Westminster, London; London Stock, Wandsworth, London

The tyre company introduced monthly releases last year, but will only list restaurants worthy of a visit between publishing its annual guide: stars, Bib Gourmands and Green stars will continue to be announced annually.

As of this month, the following seven restaurants will be listed in the Michelin Guide:

Plaza Khao Gaeng, Bloomsbury, London

Growing many of the ingredients himself Luke Farrell recreates spicy curries of Southern Thailand (‘khao gaeng’ translates as ‘curry over rice’) as another JKS restaurant is awarded recognition from the Michelin guide.

Guests can taste punchy Thai dishes like gung pad sator prik gaeng tai (tiger prawns with sator beans, stir-fried in a southern curry paste) or kua kling muu (dry wok fried pork), which don’t hold back on the spice.

Little Hollows Pasta, Bristol

Named after the first pasta shape chef-owner Chris learned to make many years ago, guests are encouraged to ignore the menu and just go with the team’s suggestions.

The restaurant’s honest Italian dishes are authentic, fresh and full of flavour, with the desserts and deli goods too good to be missed.

1610, Dumfries

The historic Globe Inn was not only well known as a favourite haunt of legendary Scottish poet, Robert Burns, but also offers a staggering 300 whiskies to guests – including some from the owners’ distillery.

The inn’s atmospheric, vintage-style restaurant whose name is a reference to the date it first opened, offers creative, modern dishes, crafted with full of colour and flavour. Guests are recommended to go for the tasting menu for the full 1610 experience.

Seacliff, Berrynarbor

Offering views of the cliffs and the bay, the restaurant is located at the front of the long-standing, family-run Sandy Cove Hotel, with the food being more than a match for the view.

Modern techniques and local ingredients allow for colourful, flavourful dishes like ‘Lundy lobster, saffron aioli, Devon crab, braised fennel, bouillabaisse’ or ‘cod, cauliflower with fennel, brown shrimp beurre noisette, samphire’.

Rattle Owl, York

Positioned in a quirky spot set on a cobbled street within the city walls, Chef Tom Heywood showcases the finest Yorkshire ingredients in original, exciting combinations packed with bold flavours.

Guests arriving at 1pm, Thursday to Saturday, will enjoy a 4 or 8 course lunch, with Sunday offering a roast with an authentic evening atmosphere between Wednesday and Saturday.

Arkle, Chester

After holding a Michelin Star at the Chester Grosvenor Hotel for many years, 2022 marks a new chapter for Simon Radley, with Chester native Elliot Hill newly installed behind the stoves.

The tasting menu highlights the best seasonal British produce, be that Scottish lobster or Herdwick lamb from the Lake District, and dishes are tasty, modern, and well-presented.

Apricity, Mayfair, London

Owner Chantelle Nicholson, formerly of Tredwells, provides a strong sustainability ethos which extends far beyond kitchen practices to include the design and decoration of the restaurant, and even the staff uniforms.

Focusing on seasonal British ingredients from small producers, the menu provides vegetarians with plenty of choice, with the restaurant’s service welcomed as unfailingly sunny, and the atmosphere warm and unhurried.
