Commenting on the 2011 guide, new Editor in Chief Rebecca Burr said: “This centenary edition underlines the UK’s greatest strength which is the rich diversity and variety of its restaurants.  The country embraces all kinds of restaurants and every type of cuisine and the public’s appetite shows no signs of abating.

“There is no doubt that 2010 was a difficult year but those hotels and restaurants that represented value for money, at whatever price, were the ones who were best placed to weather the storm.”
