Michelin Guide 2023: 10 restaurants in and around Liverpool to make ‘foodies bible’ - two drop out

The are some great places in Merseyside to dine - as selected by the dons of food critics.

The listings for the prestigious Michelin Guide 2023 are updated monthly and there have been a number of changes for restaurants in and around Liverpool.

March’s launch party saw local eaterie sō–lō earn its inaugural star and Belzan, on Smithdown Road, added to the guide for the first time, but two restaurants have now been removed from the foodies bible.

Michelin-starred Fraiche has shut its doors in Oxton Village, Wirral, to move to Shropshire and LERPWL on the Royal Albert Dock has closed down less than three years after opening.

The Guide awards up to three Michelin stars for excellence to a select few establishments, while it awards Bib Gourmands to choice eateries and recommends others.

There are now three restaurants near Liverpool with a prestigious Michelin star – with chef Tim Allen’s converted pub sō–lō winning the prestigious honour for this year, joining The Barn and Moor Hall.

Here is every restaurant to make the Michelin Guide for 2023 – and what critics had to say about them.
