The Marksman Public House in Bethnal Green, London has been named the pub of the year in Michelin’s Eating Out in Pubs 2017 guide.

The neighbourhood boozer, which was recently taken over by two ex-St John alumni, chef-owners Tom Harris and Jon Rotheram, has been building a reputation for stunning British food in an unpretentious setting (below), including brown butter tart, game pies and of course, the Sunday roast.

Michelin Guide editor Rebecca Burr describes it as “a proper neighbourhood pub” with “new-era pub food,” according to The Independent. In all, 38 pubs were added to the guide this year, which covers close to 600 UK and Irish pubs.

Only recently, another pub, The Sportsman in Kent, with Stephen Harris at the helm, was recently named best UK restaurant by Restaurant Magazine, while Tom Kerridge’s The Hand & Flowers in Marlow, Buckinghamshire has established itself in the Michelin Guide, being the only UK pub to hold two stars.

Last year the title went to The Butchers Arms, near Gloucester.
