The Pilot awarded top pub accolade

A pub in Penarth has become the only watering hole across Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan to be awarded a coveted spot in the 2016 Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide.

For the third year running, The Pilot, which opened in 2012 , has retained its position in the esteemed guide, which is compiled by the same team who produce the world renowned Michelin Guide to Great Britain & Ireland.

Praised for its “modern seafood menu and real ales”, The Pilot is described as having a “sea-faring ambiance”.

This year’s Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide recommends more than 580 pubs across the UK, of which 60 are new entries. All the pubs in the guide are selected, first and foremost, for the quality of their food.

Speaking about the accolade, Sharon Noakes, Managing Director of Knife & Fork Food said, “We’re overjoyed that Michelin has acknowledged The Pilot, not only for the third year running, but as the only entrant from Cardiff and the Vale. We’ve worked hard over the past three years to establish The Pilot as one of the leading pubs in the region, and being recognised by Michelin is testament to that.”

“The pub scene in the UK is going from strength to strength”, said Rebecca Burr, editor of the Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide, “with more and more chefs embracing high-quality ingredients and using them to offer their customers a truly unique menu and dining experience.

“What has been impressive this year is the number of pubs we’re seeing expanding their repertoire and offering more than just a lunch or dinner service.”

The Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide 2016 is available in bookshops priced at £14.99
