Restaurants warned of bogus guidebook reviewers

Restaurateurs have been warned to be on their guard against people falsely claiming to work for The Which? Good Food Guide and attempting to obtain payment in return for an entry to the guide.

Elizabeth Carter, consultant editor on The Which? Good Food Guide, said: "It is very worrying to hear that restaurants have been deceived by unscrupulous individuals in this way.

"We want to remind restaurants that The Which? Good Food Guide is completely independent and would never ask restaurants to pay for a listing.

"We would urge restaurants who are contacted for payment to take the details of the caller and notify us so that we can take appropriate action."

If your restaurant has been affected by this issue contact Toby Hiles at Which? on 020 7770 7607.
