FrontRunners: Lone Star

If you are craving pub food, consider the Stagg Inn and Restaurant (+44.1544.230.221) in the rural village of Titley, in the county of Herefordshire, England. It is the first and so far only British pub to receive a Michelin star.

Steve and Nicola Reynolds reopened the abandoned Stagg in 1998. Steve, a chef who trained under the Roux brothers at Le Gavroche in London, created a menu that omits fish and chips but includes lemon sole baked with nut brown butter and lemon pickle. Instead of shepherd’s pie, you can order fillet of Herefordshire beef with caramelized shallots and red wine sauce.

The Michelin Guide inspectors were apparently impressed by the Stagg’s focus on fresh, local ingredients—particularly its cheese board, which features as many as a dozen varieties made by local farmers.
