Local Bib Gourmands foodie winners 2017
It’s a gourmet-fest on Muddy this week, with the local Michelin-starred eateries listed the other day and now, for those of us who are *yawn* a bit tired of eating four times a week at Le Manoir, the 2017 Bib Gourmand winners in Bucks, Oxon and beyond.
Oxfordshire trounced Bucks in the Michelin constellations this year, but it’s a bit of role reversal with the Bib Gourmands, the Michelin classification that rewards excellent cuisine at more affordable prices.
No surprises that many of these places feature in the Muddy Little Black Book (but of course!), and as it happens I’m already booked in to re-review The Russell Arms in Butler’s Cross in a couple of weeks, as it’s changed hands (and those hands are clearly doing very nicely).
Any place I’ve reviewed in the past I’ve shown with a link, and those I haven’t visited I’ll add to my must-try list so that I’ve well and truly covered this year’s official top pubs and restaurants in the area for you. Hey, no need to thank me, just roll me out the door to my next assignment.
