Michelin Guide 2011 Stars & Bib Gourmand

There is a lot of hot air about the latest Michelin Guide 2011 on the web and in the press, including some quiet deletions, Andrew Pern’s fantastic Star at Harome with Michelin star or not, remains one of the best Gastropub’s in the country and is a rather bemusing omission, certainly gains a Yorkshire Dales Food Blog Star but this may be little recompense!  but elsewhere on our patch we have a couple of new entries to celebrate with recognition with a Bib Gourmand which highlights restaurants offering “good food at moderate prices” and therefore perfect for Austerity January for a treat without breaking the bank.

Michelin Bib Gourmand LogoLa Locanda in Gisburn, Cinzia and Maurizio Bocchi run a fantastic Italian Restaurant featuring locally sourced ingredients & freshly made pasta for their classic Italian dishes & a great wine selection.  My favourite Italian restaurant locally and well worth a visit.  The Bib Gourmand award is in addition to a Platinum Award at PAPA, the Pizza, Pasta & Italian Food Industry Awards 2009.

The Freemasons Country Inn at Wiswell near Clitheroe, Simon Smith adds a Michelin Bib Gourmand to his other recent accolades, Best Newcomer in North West in Great British Pub Awards 2010 & the Publican Pub Design of the Year 2010, not bad within 2 years of opening.
