The Good Food Guide (GFG) has said it will not publish its annual guide this year due to the ongoing impact the Coronavirus crisis is having on the restaurant industry.

The 2021 Guide, which was originally set to be released in September, would have been GFG’s 70th edition.

In a statement on its website, GFG said: “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 2021 guide in September. 

“Until a publication date is confirmed for the next edition, the GFG will continue to promote the hospitality industry through its website, social media channels and other Waitrose & Partners publications, bringing you details of the latest news and initiatives.”

The first edition of the GFG was released in 1951, has been published by Waitrose & Partners since August 2013.
