Seaham Hall’s Byron’s restaurant has been added to a guide to the best restaurants in the country.

The Good Food Guide has today revealed its top places to dine in the UK for its 2018 edition, with Byron’s amongst a handful of new North East entries in the publication.

The guide celebrates fine dining and each year publishes a Top 50 guide to restaurants, as well as a list of recommendations and discoveries from regional areas.

There are 1235 entries in total in the Guide, with only the Top 50 ranked.

The Raby Hunt, near Darlington, is the only North East restaurant to make it into the coveted Top 50, and is ranked at no.37, with Byron’s becoming the only East Durham restaurant to be added in a pick of local eateries.

Others highlighted from the North East and added to the 2018 edition include The Patricia in Jesmond, Newcastle; Riley’s Fish Shack in Tynemouth, Bistro Forty Six in Jesmond and The Orangery at Rockcliffe Hall, near Darlington.

The Good Food Guide is compiled by combining reader feedback on restaurants up and down the country with anonymous inspections by a team of industry experts.

The Good Food Guide 2018 is published by Waitrose on September 4.
