7 Michelin Star Restaurants Yorkshire 2021

Michelin Star Restaurants Yorkshire – there are five Michelin starred restaurants in Yorkshire in 2020.  We are very lucky to have so many in our county and they are all very different from one another.  

Here is the list of all seven Michelin Restaurants in Yorkshire.

The first one gets a special mention as it’s so close to where we live:

The Pipe and Glass at South Dalton, East Yorkshire

The only Michelin starred restaurant in East Yorkshire, and the one closest to us.  “The Pipe and Glass is a former coaching inn set in the glorious surroundings of the Dalton Estate.  Run since 2006 by James and Kate Mackenzie, the pub and restaurant have gained an international reputation and many major awards, including a Michelin star (held since 2010). ”  Taken from The Pipe and Glass website.


Roots, York

Roots – Fine Dining in York

Roots is the only Michelin Star Restaurant in York and is owned by Tommy Banks, who also owns The Black Swan at Oldstead.  “Our menus adopt a different style to reflect each of the growing groups as defined in Tommy’s cookbook, ‘Roots’. Tommy and his team work around these three groups; The Preservation Season, The Hunger Gap and The Time of Abundance. With these, the dishes change as the availability of ingredients come and go.”  A good friend of mine recently visited and reviewed Roots.

The Star Inn at Harome, North Yorkshire

“Situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors in the picturesque village of Harome, near Helmsley, this much-loved thatched Inn’s origins are understood to date back to the C14th. The current chapter of its history opened with the arrival of Chef/Patron, Andrew Pern in June 1996, since when it has been consistently rated as one of the UK’s top eateries, holding a Michelin star for a generous portion of Andrew’s tenure.” Taken from The Star Inn’s website.


The Angel at Hetton near Skipton

The Angel Inn at Hetton is widely regarded as the UK’s original gastropub. The ancient inn has origins which date back to the 15th century, forming the basis of hundreds of years of delicious dining and drinking history. In recent years it has held the reputation of being the destination establishment, in one of the most exquisite corners of the North Yorkshire Dales. Famous for its food as well as its warm, welcoming atmosphere – it has maintained a strong following among locals as well as with customers from all over the world.

The Angel’s fortunes took an exciting turn in September 2018 with the arrival of a new management team. At the helm is chef patron Michael Wignall. Michael and his wife Johanna have a vision to keep everything that the Angel was famous for; fantastic food, a warm welcome and a deep connection with the dramatic Yorkshire landscape – and make it outstanding.

The Black Swan at Oldstead, North Yorkshire/North York Moors

“For us at The Black Swan, it’s much more than just Michelin Star food. The focus is all about where we are and who we are – a reflection of “Oldstead”- traditional Yorkshire with a swirling mix of creativity and eccentricity. We design and build most things ourselves. Whatever it is, it’s us, and as our guest you’ll see it for yourself.” Taken from The Black Swan’s website.


The Man Behind the Curtain, Leeds, West Yorkshire

The only Michelin starred restaurant in West Yorkshire.  “The Man Behind The Curtain is more than a restaurant for me. It is where I am able to express myself with flavour and aesthetic. The cuisine is my couture, bold in flavour with inspiration from around the world. Brutalist in design, yet fun.” Taken from The Man Behind the Curtain’s website.


Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall

“Originally from Yorkshire, Shaun Rankin honed his skills at The Mayfair Hotel in London and attended the Thames Valley University at Slough. Shaun’s love of the sea then took him to the Channel Islands where he spent the majority his career residing in Jersey.

In 2003 he joined Bohemia restaurant as Head Chef, gaining his first Michelin star in 2005. Shaun opened his own highly-acclaimed restaurant, Ormer in 2013 in St Helier which was awarded its first Michelin star four months after opening, as well as receiving three AA rosettes a few months later.
