MOOR Hall in Aughton – just a short drive from Mid Cheshire - has been hailed as a “world class” restaurant in The Good Food Guide Awards 2024.

Gone are the days of numbered lists featuring destinations and venues ranked from one to 50.

Instead, the long-standing guide to dining out has announced a lineup of restaurants that blaze a trail in their field, delivering perfection at every service.

With four world class restaurants and 35 exceptional restaurants, the list is the perfect mix of top quality cuisine, high class service and outstanding customer experience.

Each restaurant has been carefully and anonymously inspected to earn their place on the list.



Moor Hall in Aughton - the double Michelin starred venue headed by renowned chef Mark Birchall - is one of four restaurants hailed as “world class” together with Simon Rogan’s triple Michelin starred L’Enclume in Cartmel, Ynyshir in Machynlleth headed by Gareth Ward, also with two Michelin stars, and Michelin-starred The Sportsman at Whitstable, which was also named Restaurant of the Year.

If you want to travel a little further afield to sample the delights of other restaurants on the list, why not head to north Yorkshire?

The Good Food Guide Awards 2024 named Helmsley and the Howardian Hills as the most exciting food destination.

The North Yorkshire countryside boasts Tommy Banks’ Black Swan at Oldstead and The Star at Harome as well as Myse in Hovingham and The Abbey Inn at Byland – all within five miles of Helmsley.

Our Farm in Cumbria, owned by Simon Rogan and the provider of top quality produce to his restaurants, takes the title for Best Farm to Table and it’s just a stone’s throw from the superb L’Enclume in Cartmel.

London sees two awards - Best Front Row Seat for The Chef’s Table at The Sea and Best New Restaurant was Mountain, with Higher Ground in Manchester featuring in the shortlist.
