Every month the MICHELIN Guide Great Britain & Ireland reveals details of new restaurants to be featured in the guide, ahead of the yearly launch ceremony when the Michelin Stars, Bib Gourmands and Green Stars are unveiled.
These restaurants appear on both the website and the iOS and Android apps and are highlighted with a ‘New’ symbol for easy identification.
For July, we are pleased to share six more of the inspectors' favourite new additions...
Situated in the leafy suburbs of Bath, this charming country house boats an immaculately kept rear garden and a delightful terrace – the perfect spot to enjoy an aperitif before heading through to the elegant dining room, with its equally serene feel. The seasonal à la carte menu showcases the kitchen’s skills, offering modern British dishes which are carefully executed and full of flavour; expect Wiltshire lamb, and duck from Woolley Park Farm. Desserts are a highlight and there’s a good choice of wines by the glass to accompany your meal.
Hampton Manor’s Victorian walled garden has been restored and, where its prized pineapple house once stood, is now a single storey, red-brick restaurant. Having cooked for several years in Norway, Head Chef David Taylor returned home and spent many months searching out the UK’s top producers; these first-class ingredients will be used alongside produce from their own garden once their planting starts to yield results. Dishes on the surprise 15-course menu blend classic and modern techniques: some plates are defined by their simplicity, whilst others are eye-catching and elaborate.
It may be a garden centre café, but this is not just any old garden centre café: it’s located in a separate building for a start – a spacious and smart modern space with a jewel of a terrace overlooking a lake. And then there’s the food: a frequently changing, seasonal menu bursting with delightful dishes which are fresh, unfussy and full of flavour. Come for coffee and cake, breakfast, brunch or lunch; there’s plenty for vegetarians and vegans – and a chef’s table if you’d like to watch and chat to the chefs as they work. Do book ahead, as the aptly named café is likely to be busy.
Sandwiched between Liverpool’s Albert Docks and the Anglican Cathedral is an area known as the Baltic Triangle – chock full of former factories and warehouses now being converted into apartments, shops, offices, bars and restaurants. Set on the ground floor of one such conversion, Manifest rocks a retro, industrial feel thanks to the exposed brick and the steel supports still in situ. Seasonal modern British dishes are carefully cooked and come with complementary flavours and textures. Equal care has been lavished on the wine list, with each wine available by the glass as well as the bottle.
Upstairs at the George, City of Westminster, London
Downstairs at the newly renovated, 18C George, you’ll find a simple pubby menu, with burgers, bangers & mash and plenty of beer. Head upstairs and you’ll find an intimate space, with original features like marble fireplaces, Regency windows and ornate plaster ceilings, where they serve a menu of British pub classics like dressed crab, devilled kidneys, Cornish sole and sticky toffee pudding. Portions are hearty, satisfying and big on flavour, and the bijoux bar and its all-English wine list – featuring over 150 wines – is another big draw.
Wandsworth has been upping its restaurant game of late, and this neighbourhood spot on the site of the former Young’s (Ram) Brewery makes a worthy addition to the guide. It’s set over two levels and its original red brick, wooden beams and metal pillars combine with stylish décor to give it a colourful, contemporary look. There’s a concise, good value à la carte at lunch and an 8-course tasting menu at dinner. Dishes blend British produce with subtle international influences to create brightly coloured and boldly flavoured plates, and the sensibly priced wine list covers all bases.
