The Marksman in Bethnal Green scoops 2017 Michelin Pub of the Year title

The Marksman in Bethnal Green, east London, has been named the 2017 Michelin Pub of the Year.

The pub, which was relaunched in May 2015, is operated by Tom Harris and Jon Rotheram, who both previously worked at Fergus Henderson's St John restaurant in London.

Rachel Burr, editor of the Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide 2017

"We are increasingly witnessing how pubs can provide a platform for young chefs to start their own businesses and how inventive these chefs can be, particularly when it comes to the sourcing of their ingredients. The quality of cooking in some of these pubs certainly rivals that of restaurants."

The Marksman is one of eight pubs in the guide to be newly awarded a Bib Gourmand for good-value, good-quality cooking. Two pubs have been awarded a Michelin star: the Wild Rabbit in Kingham, Oxfordshire, with Tim Allen in the kitchen, and the Crown at Burchetts Green, Berkshire, run by Simon Bonwick and his family.

Burr said: "The Bonwicks put their heart and soul into running the Crown, and that passion really shines through on the plate."

This year's Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide recommends more than 500 pubs, of which 38 are new entries. It is priced at £14.99.
