A first in The Good Food Guide: the 2021 guide won’t publish

The Good Food Guide, which forms the guide of the UK’s best restaurants, said they would not print the 2021 guide, saying it would not reflect the industry fairly and accurately due to coronavirus.

The Good Food Guide, an annual guide of the best restaurants in the UK since 1951, said they would not publish their guide for 2021. “Over the past few weeks, however, it has become clear that a print edition would not be able to do this fairly or accurately. The editors have therefore taken the difficult decision not to publish the 2021 guide in September,” they said in a statement. They said their inspectors would be ready to support and visit when the UK’s restaurants, bars and cafes are open and they would continue to promote the sector through their social media channels. “As it approaches its 70th year, The Good Food Guide would wish to shine a light on the incredible restaurant scene in the UK and Channel Islands more than ever,” the editors said in a statement.
