THREE Wirral restaurants have been named in The Good Food Guide - with one high-scoring establishment being named in the UK's Top 50 restaurants for 2020.

Owned by Waitrose & Partners The Good Food Guide 2020 celebrates the finest restaurants in the country, with 1,200 eateries included in the trusted foodie handbook.

The guide will be published on Thursday, September 12 and includes the Top 50 restaurants in the UK, with a place on the list representing a huge achievement.

Each one is ranked by its score in The Good Food Guide, editor appraisal and strength of reader feedback.

Oxton's award-winning Fraiche ranked as the 20th best restaurant in the UK - the only Merseyside eatery making it on the top 50 list.

Along with the top 50 ranking, the guide features more than 350 restaurants that offer three-course meals for £30 or less.

Burnt Truffle and Claremont Farm Café made the guide for Wirral.

Elsewhere, Burnt Truffle owner Gary Usher's latest offering Pinion, in Prescot, was a named as a new entry to the Good Food Guide.

While Wirral chef Paul Askew's restaurant The Art School also made the overall guide.

Elizabeth Carter, editor of The Good Food Guide by Waitrose & Partners, said: “Seven decades of publication have given The Good Food Guide a unique insight into eating out in Britain.

"And the more we conduct our lives online, the more we look for care, provenance and thoughtfulness – especially when it comes to food.

"With diners increasingly looking for flexible eating options and value for money, there has been a surge in inexpensive cafés and restaurants that rank quality of ingredients above all else.

"Small, owner-run dining rooms across the country provide clear examples of how they can and do work in direct opposition to the pizza-burger overload on the British high street.”
