Bib Gourmand Awards for 2019 Announced

The winners of the Michelin Bib Gourmand award has been announced for the 2019 guide. The Bib Gourmand is an accolade that recognises exceptionally good food at more moderate prices than what might be found at a traditional Michelin Star restaurant.

The director of the Michelin Guide in the UK said “Prices and value for money are important, but the Bib Gourmand is about much more; it’s about the ethos and philosophy of a restaurant. The Michelin Inspectors love finding new Bib Gourmands and they’re always hugely popular with our readers.”

The Bib Gourmand 2019 award has gone to the following restaurants:

  • Antidote, Ilfracombe, Devon
  • The Barn at Moor Hall, Lancashire
  • The Bell Inn, Langford, Gloucestershire
  • Bell’s Diner & Bar Rooms, Bristol
  • Brownes, Tuam, County Galway
  • Cin Cin, Brighton and Hove
  • Compasses Inn, Crundale, Kent
  • Charlton Arms, Ludlow, Shropshire
  • Clanbrassil House, Dublin
  • The Crown Inn, Upton, Hampshire
  • Clenaghans, Aghalee, County Antrim
  • Dillon’s, Timoleague, County Cork
  • The Dog and Gun Inn, Skelton, Cumbria
  • Farang, Highbury, London
  • The Green, Sherborne, Dorset
  • Kudu, Peckham, London
  • Leaping Hare, Stanton, Gloucestershire
  • Monadh Kitchen, Glasgow
  • Porth Eirias, Colwyn Bay, Conwy
  • Petit Pois, Hoxton, London
  • Route, Newcastle
  • Root, Bristol
  • Sorella, Clapham, London
  • The Sugar Boat, Helensburgh, Argyll
  • Tare, Bristol
  • Tartare, Galway
  • The Windmill Chatham Green, Chelmsford

Although The Charlton Arms has been in the Michelin Guide for a long time, they are a new addition to the Bib Gourmand awards. The hotel and restaurant has been recognised for its excellent standards, not only by Michelin for its food, but boasts an AA five stars award, an AA rosette for culinary excellence and has been placed in The Times' best restaurants lists many times.

The Charlton Arms' local supplies company, Smart Hospitality Supplies, have worked with them closely, in particular on designing their bespoke menu covers. A representative of the company said of the award: "it is fantastic to see a local restaurant receiving such a prestigious award, especially with the dedication and attention to detail that The Charlton Arms have exhibited over many years, supplying the county with an incredible dining experience. This is an exciting time for the county of Shropshire".

The Michelin Stars will be awarded at Monday's ceremony in London. Last year's announcements saw the likes of The Araki become the first Japanese restaurant in the UK to be awarded three stars. Who will be the newcomers this year?
