Apricity and Plaza Khao Gaeng among new additions to Michelin Guide

Michelin's latest monthly update has revealed a further seven new restaurants which will be included in its 2023 Great Britain and Ireland Guide.

The additions include Plaza Khao Gaeng (pictured), a Thai restaurant run on the mezzanine level of JKS Restaurants' Arcade Food Hall in London.

Also featured were the Seacliff restaurant at the Sandy Cove hotel in Berrynarbor, Devon and Little Hollows Pasta in Bristol, a small independent pasta bar which opened a year ago.

Arkle, which occupies the site formerly run by Simon Radley at the Chester Grosvenor hotel, also made the list. The restaurant briefly closed and lost its Michelin star following Radley's departure, but relaunched this year under chef Elliott Hill, a 2021 finalist in National Chef of the Year.

The second London addition was Chantelle Nicholson's Apricity, a sustainability-focused restaurant which Michelin said offered a "sanctuary of calm" close to Oxford Street.

York restaurant Rattle Owl is led by head chef Tom Heywood and sits within a 17th century building, which took owner Clarrie O'Callaghan two years to renovate. Michelin praised the "boldly flavoured dishes" and "buzz" of the dining room.

The only new Scottish addition was 1610 in Dumfries, a restaurant housed within the Globe Inn, a historic pub which used to serve poet Robert Burns.

There were no new restaurants listed from Wales or the island of Ireland.

Since last summer, Michelin has been unveiling new additions to its listings every month. The restaurants appear as recommended on its website and apps highlighted with a ‘new' symbol.

It will not be confirmed if any of the restaurants will also receive a star, Bib Gourmand, or Green Star sustainability award until a ceremony next year.

The full list of new additions is as follows:

  • Plaza Khao Gaeng, London

  • Little Hollows Pasta, Bristol

  • 1610, Dumfries

  • Seacliff, Berrynarbor

  • Rattle Owl, York

  • Arkle, Chester

  • Apricity, London
