The annual list of French tyremaker Michelin's best restaurants has been announced - and a few new food pubs have made the list. 

Here is the full collection:

 

The Hand and Flowers, Marlow (2 stars)

The Greene King lease run by chef-patron Tom Kerridge is the original fine dining pub and having won two stars in 2011 it has never looked back. 

Tom has since become one of the most well know figures in the British food world and his dishes include roast veal sweetbreads, truffled pork terrine and slow cooked duck breast.

The Coach, Marlow (1 star)

Also owned by Tom Kerridge, and just down the road from The Hand and Flowers, this Ei pub has gone on to win a coveted Michelin star under the management of Tom's protege Nick Beardshaw and head chef Tom De Keyser. 

The focal point of the pub is the rotisserie which has constantly changing meats, and the menu includes pub staples such as burgers and chicken kievs - done to a high standard, but of course.

The Hind's Head, Bray (1 star)

Self-taught super chef Heston Blumental got involved in the pub game back in 2007 when he opened the Hind's Head as a more casual option to his flagship Fat Duck restaurant in Bray.

Refurbished last year, the pub features an a la carte and five course menu option, featuring dishes such as hash of snails and the more traditional-sounding oxtail and kidney pudding.

The Star Inn, Harome (1 star)

Chef patron Andrew Pern has run the Star Inn in North Yorkshire since the mid-1990s and at one point lost his Michelin star in 2011. But the pub and its head chef Steve Smith regained it in 2015 and it has gone from strength to strength since then.

Dishes include locally sourced and seasonal products in well executed dishes fit for the surroundings, such as Yorkshire reared salt aged lamb.

The Black Swan, Oldstead (1 star)

The Black Swan in Oldstead was named best restaurant in the world by a TripAdvisor poll, and its incredible cuisine from Tommy Banks would explain why.

Tommy had no formal training as chef, but at the age of 24, received a Michelin star. Born and raised in the local village where he now runs the pub with his brother James, Tommy's dishes include foraging for local ingredients in the fields and countryside around Oldstead.

The Sportsman, Seasalter, Kent (1 star)

The self proclaimed 'grotty boozer' by the sea in Kent, just outside of Whitstable, is a masterclass in fine dining. Adored by foodies and critics alike, self taught chef patron Stephen Harris has created a truly awe inspiring menu in a Shephard Neame tenancy. 

You know it is special when the world's most high profile chefs, such as Noma's Rene Redzepi, choose this as the place to personally dine when in London.

NEW! The Fordwich Arms, Fordwich, Kent (1 star)

Another new winner of a Michelin star, ex Tom Aiken's chef Dom Robinson has created a collection of dishes to tempt foodies from all over.

Options include wild sea bass with bombay potatoes, spiced cauliflower & cream of spinach, or tartare of Roe Deer & Oysters with seaweed, pinenuts & dill and desserts such as palm sugar rice pudding with a salad of mango & coriander and Kalamansi lime. Yum.

The White Swan in Fence, Lancashire (1 star)

The self proclaimed 'village pub' run by Tom Parker, who formerly worked at Nigel Haworth's Northcote, has been quietly delivering outstanding food for a while now. Tom says you can 'never say exactly what will be on our menu' as it delivers freshly produced dishes using quality local produce.

It also says 'vegetarians are well catered for', as Tom believes that as 'much work needs to go into cooking a carrot as a piece of fish'.

 

The Harwood Arms, Fulham (1 star)

If you are looking for arguably one of the finest 'gastropub' experiences in the capital, then head chef Alex Harper delivers a traditional gastropub menu in a very gastropub setting - all wooden floors, wood furniture and a dark wood bar with sensational seasonal dishes.

Dishes representing this kind of cooking including crispy rabbit with Wiltshire truffle cream, malt and barley or roast fallow deer with celeriac, juniper and pickled walnut.

Yorke Arms in Pateley Bridge (1 star)

An 18th century coaching house in the Nidderdale Valley within the North Yorkshire Dales, the Yorke Arms was taken over by Frances Atkins and her husband Bill in 1996 winning its Michelin star in 2003, with Frances one of only six female Michelin chefs in the UK.

 Frances' inspiration comes from the abundance of local produce and dishes on the tasting menu include potted shrimp, squid and buckthorn as well as truffled yorkshire curd with vegetables, wood sorrel and green tomato.

The Pipe and Glass at South Dalton (1 star)

James and Kate Mackenzie took over the Pipe and Glass in 2006, turning it into the fantastic gastropub it is today. It took less than four years for the pub to get a Michelin Star.

Dishes on the menu include Wiltshire truffled coddled hen egg with autumn wild mushrooms, Jerusalem artichokes, spinach, lovage cream or roast red legged partridge breasts with leg meat, bacon and barley faggot, celeriac puree, black cabbage, parkin crumb and redcurrant relish.

The Crown in Burchetts Green (1 star)

Simon Bonwick runs the small kitchen by himself while some of his nine children are front of house in this extraordinary operation run out of a Greene King pub.

The dishes are typical Larousse Gastronomique fare with black forest 'cadeau' and tarte tartins on the dessert menu next to salt marsh lamp rump and veal on the mains.

Nut Tree, Murcott (1 star)

Run by chef patron Mike North with his wife Imogen since 2006, this is very much a Michelin pub that is still a pub, with fish & chips on the menu. 

 The Nut Tree describes itself as a 'traditional village pub' where you can have 'a pint or relaxing drink at the end of a hard day’s work'. 

 
 
 

 

Pony & Trap, Chew Magna (1 star)
