Wirral eatery Fraiche has once again been named as one the UK’s top 50 restaurants by The Good Food Guide.
The exclusive Oxton food spot made it to number 14 on the prestigious list, which was this year topped by Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Cornwall.
Liverpool’s Maray, which has branches on Bold Street and Allerton Road, also made the book for the first time.
The Good Food Guide, which has been published since 1951, was established after the Second World War to improve the standard of cooking in post-war Britain.
The list for potential entries for the guide is created from feedback from members of the public before a team of anonymous inspectors visit the shortlisted restaurants.
The inspectors never announce who they are, and they may attend individually or in groups, at lunch or at dinner, any day of the week.
In this year’s edition Fraiche was awarded a cooking score of eight which, according to The Goof Food Guide’s website, means it’s “a kitchen cooking close to or at the top of its game”.
Fraiche, which is owned and run by chef Marc Wilkinson, has a Michelin Star and was named on The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants list earlier this year.
Due to the demand for a table at Fraiche, reservations must be made three months in advance.
