What's Happening?
The Good Food Guide is relaunching its website in the next few weeks; thank you for your patience. The new website will allow full online access to The Good Food Guide’s reviews, which will be free for members of the myWaitrose scheme, or available at a price of £12.99. In the meantime, if you wish to contact us, buy a book or leave restaurant feedback, please follow the guidelines below.

What is The Good Food Guide?
The Good Food Guide is the UK's longest-running restaurant guide. First published in 1951 and written and compiled from scratch every year, it reviews the best restaurants, pubs and cafés throughout the UK. The Good Food Guide does not accept advertising and every inspected meal is paid for. Inspectors always visit restaurants anonymously. Since August 2013 The Good Food Guide has been owned and published by Waitrose. 

How is The Good Food Guide compiled?
Each year, the guide is completely rewritten and compiled from scratch. All reviews are based on the huge volume of feedback that we receive from readers and this, together with anonymous inspections, ensures that every entry is assessed afresh. All feedback we receive from readers is taken into account; you really can have your say, so please tell us about your restaurant experiences, good or bad.

How do I send in my restaurant feedback? 
When our new site is launched you will be able to leave us feedback via our online form. In the meantime, please email us any feedback at:

How does a restaurant get into The Good Food Guide?
