Two pubs have been awarded Michelin stars for the quality of their food and service. 

The Wild Rabbit in Kingham, Oxfordshire, and the Crown, Burchetts Green, Berkshire, were given the coveted accolades this morning with the launch of the Michelin Guide 2017 for Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The Morning Advertiser ​editor Ed Bedington said: “It’s always great to see pubs that do fantastic food and their tireless chefs honoured for their efforts.

'Shatter expectations'

“I fully expect to see even more pubs achieve similar accolades as the standard of food across the sector continues to shatter expectations.”

The Crown​ and the Wild Rabbit both ranked in 2016’s Top 50 Gastropubs, coming in at 22nd​ and 29th respectively.

Eight pubs were also awarded Bib Gourmands, which the guide doles out to establishments it deems offer "good quality, good value cooking".

They were: the Marksman​, Bethnal Green, the Newman Arms, Fitzrovia, the Russell Arms, Buckinghamshire, the Sun Inn, Hampshire, the Inn at Welland, Worcestershire, the Anchor, Surrey, the St Tudy Inn​, Cornwall and the Scran & Scallie, Edinburgh. 

'Excellent additions'

Michelin Guide​ editor Rebecca Burr said: “There have been some excellent additions to the guide across both Great Britain and Ireland - restaurants that are producing consistently good food using excellent ingredients.”

Last year, the guide’s results were announced on Twitter a day early​ after claims rose that a bookshop had leaked 2016’s results early. However, no pubs were among the establishments chosen for the awards.
