New kid on the restaurant block recognised in Michelin Bib Gourmand Guide 2020

Pilgrim's founders Dave Bone, Jamie Duffield, Ant Power

Liverpool city centre restaurant Pilgrim is featured in Michelin’s Bib Gourmand Guide for 2020, the only one in Merseyside to be recognised.

The restaurant appeared on BBC2’s My Million Pound Menu and secured investment from Graffiti Spirits Group director Matt Farrell,

Inspired by the Spanish Camino De Santiago Pilgrimage, the restaurant is situated in the Duke Street Food and Drink Market.

Michelin’s Bib Gourmand Guide recognises the best restaurants across Great Britain for good quality and good value rated by Michelin inspectors, and Pilgrim said to be included is a fantastic achievement for any venue.

Radically seasonal, ethically-sourced, regional produce with a big focus on fire-cooked smokey flavours, Pilgrim serves an ever-changing á la carte menu of peak-season vegetables, as well as sustainably-sourced meat and fish, all cooked over wood charcoal on a huge centrepiece live-fire hearth.

The restaurant was founded by Jamie Duffield, Dave Bone and Anthony Power.

On the restaurant’s new award, Jamie said: “We’re all absolutely delighted to have been recognised in Michelin’s Bib Gourmand Awards and to be part of the 2020 guide and have our hard work recognised is just amazing.

“We’re all so passionate about the quality of our ingredients and ensure we handle each and every one of them with care so that our dishes deliver on flavour.

“We’ve introduced an affordable lunchtime menu along with our ‘whole beast Sunday roasts’, and there is, of course, our á la carte and tasting menus, ensuring we have something for everyone.”
