THE Good Food Guide 2020 by Waitrose & Partners (GFG) has revealed this year’s very best places to dine in the UK - including several in Somerset.

The guide features 1,200 eateries - from big names to best-kept secrets - and is published on September 12.

New entries from Somerset are Todays Menu, in Ilminster, and Bistro Lotte, in Frome.

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.”
