WIltshire restaurant retains Michelin star

January 20, 2011
One of Wiltshire's most prestigious restaurants has retained its Michelin star for the second year running. The Bybrook Restaurant at The Manor House Hotel, Castle Combe, is one of only two restaurants in Wiltshire to hold the coveted stars.
The Michelin Guide is arguably the most revered restaurant book of its kind among chefs, restaurant critics and guests. The Bybrook first gained a Michelin star in 2009.
A Michelin Guide spokesman said The Bybrook's success was testament to the hard work carried out over the past year by executive chef Richard Davies and his team.
Richard, who took up his position in August 2007, said: "This star means a lot to me and my team. Michelin carries its weight in gold and this accolade is a great way to start the year."
Richard, 32, previously worked at the three Michelin star Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea and The Vineyard at Stockcross.
The 48-bedroom Manor House Hotel and Golf Club is part of the Exclusive Hotels group, winner of the AA Small Hotel Group of the Year award 2009. Last year the hotel, which is set in 365 acres of grounds, won the Tea Guilds' Best Country House Afternoon Tea award. Former guests include Margaret, now Baroness, Thatcher, Michael Douglas and Gwyneth Paltrow.
