It’s Friday, and many people will be heading to the pub this evening for a pint or two and something to eat. Those hoping for a meal to remember can increase their chances by picking up a copy of the Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide 2015, which was released today and available for £13.99, or €14.99 in Ireland.
Visiting the pub isn’t just thirsty work these days – an increasing number of establishments cater to those arriving with a healthy appetite. To take the guesswork out of finding a pub that serves quality food, in 2004 Michelin launched its first Eating Out in Pubs Guide. The latest edition of the annual publication, Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide 2014, hits the shelves today at a price of £13.99, or €14.99 in Ireland.
Those who enjoy fine dining or just a good feed needn’t wait long for the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2014. It will be released on 4 October, and Michelin has given a heads up on what’s to expect in the latest edition.
Although highly regarded, the Michelin Guides have sunk in circulation over the past decade. Media reports peg the decline from 2000 to 2010 as being from more than 400,000 copies to just 107,000. To counter this bleak trend, it seems the Guide concept will shortly undergo a transformation.
With a March 17 release date and £14.99 price tag (€22.90 in Ireland and on the Continent), Michelin’s Main Cities of Europe 2010 guide covers 44 cities across 20 European countries. This latest edition of the publication includes one newly-added city – Salzburg, Austria – and a total of 3,257 establishments, including 1,542 hotels and 1,715 restaurants. The UK is represented by coverage of London, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow, with 357 restaurants in the four cities included.
You’d be bonkers not to have noticed the raft of new Michelin guides hitting the bookshelves in November. Earlier in the month we reported the launch of the latest editions for Germany and Switzerland, but in coming days the gastronomic scribes in the Michelin guide team will release three new European tomes.
