This year’s Michelin Star Awards was hosted in Manchester last night, marking the guide’s 50th anniversary.
And only one Yorkshire restaurant took home a coveted star, just after only 7 months of opening.
Mýse (pronounced ‘meez’), based in Hovingsham North Yorkshire, is a beautiful British restaurant run by chef and sommelier duo Joshua and Victoria Overington that opened in summer 2023.
Mýse was recently shortlisted for Best New Restaurant at the Good Food Guide Awards 2024 and the picturesque area it’s based in, Helmsley and the Howardian Hills, was crowned the most exciting food destination in the UK.

Boasting a menu that takes an elegant spin on traditional Yorkshire cooking, the fine-dining experience focuses on using small-scale producers to source the very best local ingredients.
The Michelin Guide said: “In a pretty little village on the edge of the North York Moors lies this former pub with stripped-back décor – expect flagstone floors, whitewashed beams and exposed stone walls.
“The tasting menu features prime produce enhanced by a range of techniques, both traditional and modern, as with the subtle, well-judged use of pickling and preserving. A top wine list and non-alcoholic pairings ensure the food isn’t the only highlight, while cosy, simply decorated bedrooms complete the picture.”
Mýse joins The Star Inn at Harome and The Angel in Hetton in the Michelin club, and marks 7 stars for the region – after Michael O’Hare of The Man Behind The Curtain handed his back at the end of the year to re-invent his restaurant.
