Editors decide not to publish The Good Food Guide 2021 in September

Editors have taken the difficult decision not to publish The Good Food Guide 2021 due to lockdowns as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

These are unprecedented times for UK restaurants which have been dealt a severe blow by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lockdowns have forced the majority to make the previously unthinkable decision to close their doors for the foreseeable future. Some have been able to adapt their services to support their local communities in this time of need; all – sadly – face uncertainty.

As it approaches its 70th year, The Good Food Guide would wish to shine a light on the incredible restaurant scene in the UK and Channel Islands more than ever. Over the past few weeks, however, it has become clear that a print edition would not be able to do this fairly or accurately. The editors have therefore taken the difficult decision not to publish the Good Food Guide 2021 in September.

The Good Food Guide by Waitrose & Partners has been championing the country’s best restaurants since 1951. Each edition is written and compiled from scratch, based on reviews submitted by readers coupled with reports by a trusted team of anonymous inspectors.

As soon as the doors of the UK’s pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés are open once again, the inspectors will be ready to visit and support them, as well as the suppliers who rely on these establishments for their businesses to thrive.

Until a publication date for is confirmed for the next edition, you'll find all the Oxfordshire restaurants in the 2020 Good Food Guide here.
