Restaurants in Hampshire, UK, have been recognized as great places to eat and drink – despite not picking up any Michelin stars at this year’s awards.
The Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2021 winners were announced on January 25 at a special online-only presentation produced by LIVENow. The winners have now been added to an online only guide showing the countries best places to eat and drink.
Although, the countries restaurants didn’t pick up any Michelin Stars at the awards, 19 of them have been included in the guide.
Eateries in Winchester, Lyndhurst, Beaulieu and Romsey all featured in the guide which Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guides, said is about so much more than recognizing those at the top of their profession.
He said: “It is about promoting the hospitality industry as a whole and we want to shine a light on the hard work, tenacity and commitment of chefs and restaurant teams.”
The traditional British country pub East End Arms that is owned by John Illsley of Dire Straits and boasts a great display of photos from his personal collection in its shabby bar and pine-furnished dining room – was added to the Michelin Stars guide for 2021.
