The names of the restaurants that are included in the Michelin guide to Great Britain and Ireland 2018 were announced on Twitter. And five of them are up north!
NO new Scottish restaurants have won a Bib Gourmand.
The new Bibs, announced on Twitter are: Haveli Ponteland, Newcastle upon Tyne, Jöro, Sheffield, Skosh, York, The Staith House, North Shields and the ‘small but perfectly formed’ neighbourhood restaurant, Noble, Holywood, Belfast.
