THE GREAT EIGHT

We salute Yorkshire’s finest restaurants who made the cut at this year’s Michelin Awards and were given or retained one of those coveted shiny stars of excellence.

When Yorkshire’s Magnificent Seven rode into Manchester for their annual Michelin showdown last month, few imagined their charismatic and fearless leader Michael O’Hare would be shot down in flames and replaced by a new kid on the block.

But that was the headline news from the 2024 Michelin Awards as Myse in the North Yorkshire village of Hovingham took the place of O’Hare’s Man Behind The Curtain to win its first ever star, just seven months after first opening.

And to improve on last year’s standing even further Yorkshire was awarded an eighth star after Forge at Middleton Lodge Estate, Richmond, picked up a Michelin Green star for their commitment to sustainability.

The fact it was the Great Eight who rode back over the Pennines clutching shiny stars is testament to the hot bed of culinary brilliance we are blessed with and why we still sit at the top table when it comes to gastronomic masterclasses.

Myse, the former Hovingham Inn pub, is run by Josh and Victoria Overington, who previously ran Le Cochon Aveugle in York and the judges were blown away by the pairs elegant twist on classic Yorkshire cooking with a menu full of modern and traditional techniques.

At Forge ,where their menu is inspired by seasonal Yorkshire produce and ingredients foraged on the estate, judges praised their work supporting local farmers and the sourcing of their food.
