The Michelin Guide for Great Britain and Ireland has announced 20 new Bib Gourmands for 2024, with one Scottish restaurant making the list.

Named after Bibendum, the Michelin mascot, Bib Gourmands recognise restaurants that offer great quality for value prices.

Described as 'not quite a star', yet still a prestigious accolade, recipients have been revealed ahead of this year's Michelin Guide Ceremony for Great Britain and Ireland, which will take place on Monday, February 5 at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.

The new Scottish Bib Gourmand for 2024 has been awarded to tipo in Edinburgh, a restaurant from acclaimed chef Stuart Ralston.

Named after the fine Italian '00' flour that is used to make pasta, tipo is a sister venue to Aizle, Noto and Lyla.

The guide said: "Last, but certainly not least, we hop back over the water to Edinburgh and the house-made pastas at tipo.

"Options like bigoli cacio pepe or pappardelle with crab and chilli are designed for sharing and served in light, airy surroundings."

Ralston comes from a family of chefs and has been working in kitchens since his early teens.

The years since have seen him journey to London, Barbados and spend time working under Gordon Ramsay in New York.

Elsewhere, three new Bib Gourmands were announced for the Republic of Ireland, while restaurants across England from The Three Horseshoes in Fordham to Higher Ground in Manchester.

Gwendal Poullennec, international director of The Michelin Guide, said: “It is a joy to see 20 restaurants newly awarded the Bib Gourmand in the 2024 edition of The Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland.

"These are establishments that deserve recognition for their continued commitment to offering affordable, delicious cooking.

"The generosity and value for money they offer is wonderful to see during these challenging economic times for the restaurant industry.”
