The Michelin Guide 2022 was published today and was disappointing news for Yorkshire, with no new stars given to restaurants in the region.
However, seven restaurants have retained their restaurants: Tommy Banks’ project The Black Swan at Old Stade and Roots York; The Pipe and Glass in South Dalton, near Beverly (Chef James Mackenzie); The man behind the scenes in Leeds (Chef Michael O’Hare); Angel in Hatton (Chef Michael Wagnal) The Star Inn (Chef Andrew Pern) at Grantley Hall and Harroom near Repin (Chef Sean Rankin).
The star is expected to remain closed for about a year after a fire broke out at a palm grove last fall, yet her inclusion in the guide is a sign of solidarity from the Michelin and gastrointestinal community.
Other business ventures, including Star in the City in York and Star in the Harbor in Whitby, appear in the general section of the guide.
The Bib Gourmands Award – a definition under a star – was also disappointing, with no new Bibs announced and they still have only three Yorkshire dining venues. Squash in York, Prashad in Darlington and Hope & Anchor in South Ferryby.

The guide’s general recommendations include about 50 Yorkshire entries this year, including the new 2021 launch.Like Bantam in Helmsley And Homestead Kitchen in Gothland. Leeds chef Elizabeth Kotham’s restaurant HOME and Boston Spa bakehouse CORA are both included, this is the first time, but its Kirk Gate market venture The Owl, which has already appeared and counts Guardian food critic Grace Dent among its fans. Yes, has been deleted. The restaurant is currently trading on the premises of the old house before moving further this year.
In Leeds, Theravada is no longer the guide and former Michelle star holder Matt Haley, whose restaurant The Foundry x closed in 2020, has not yet joined Horsforth for his new project, The Ford.
Vanillas was also dropped in the evening, having been a guide for 14 consecutive years but is now ready for sale after the retirement of its long-serving owners.
Burlington at Bolton Abbey, which was praised for its lockdown takeaway service in 2021, did not return this year, nor did The Crown & Cushion or Hill’s recent admission to The Dining Room at Borough Bridge, Grassington House, Welburn , Tapasia in Hill Marina.
Even a visit by a nationally renowned food critic does not guarantee that Michelin will impress the authors. Three of Yorkshire’s most recent favorites – Waterside Bistro, Brooks Bray House and Vance’s in Leeds – are yet to be added to Guardian reviewer Jay Rainer’s recent favorites. The Swine That Dines in Leeds, which The Times’ Marina O’Loughlin intended to review before it closed, is also not featured.
Bradford, Halifax, Huddersfield, Hill, Scarborough and Doncaster are not represented at all in the guide.
