The 30th anniversary edition of the south west’s original fine dining guide has been published.
For 30 years, the Trencherman’s Guide has revealed the most notable dining experiences in the south west, including places to dine and stay. Over its three-decade history, the guide has tracked the careers of some of the region’s most notable chefs – from Michael Caines MBE to Nathan Outlaw.
The 30th edition features 116 Trencherman’s member restaurants spanning from Cornwall to the Cotswolds. Restaurants are only invited into the guide on meeting strict scoring criteria based on AA, The Good Food Guide and Michelin Guide ratings, along with grading visits by experienced Trencherman’s food journalists.
Trencherman’s chairman, Michael Caines, said: “This 30th edition is a fantastic opportunity to look back at the progress that’s been made in the south west dining scene over the last 30 years.
“I think what’s driven the success of the south west as one of the UK’s leading areas for restaurants and hospitality (and why people like to visit) is our connection with the produce grown and reared here.
“We also have a fantastic food community and a wealth of talent – both chefs and service staff. And when you combine those with the natural beauty of the place, it’s no coincidence the south west hospitality scene is buzzing.”
The new book features comprehensive write-ups on each establishment, colour images, contact and other details, maps, features and more. It costs £9.99 and is available to buy on the Trencherman’s Guide website, at member restaurants and good bookshops across the UK.
