Restaurants and pubs that receive a Bib Gourmand are defined as offering “simple yet skilful cooking and great prices”. Rebecca Burr, Michelin’s Great Britain and Ireland director, said: “Prices and value for money are important but the Bib Gourmand is about much more – it’s about the ethos and philosophy of a restaurant.”

Pret A Manger vows to learn lessons after inquest finds allergy labelling ‘inadequate': Pret A Manger has vowed to learn lessons after a coroner found its labelling was "inadequate" in the case of a girl who died after eating one of its baguettes. Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, 15, went into cardiac arrest on a flight after eating an artichoke, olive and tapenade baguette bought at Heathrow airport in 2016. Ednan-Laperouse, from Fulham, west London, began to feel ill about 20 minutes into the British Airways flight and suffered a cardiac arrest, dying later the same day despite her father administering two EpiPen injections, West London Coroner’s Court was told. The baguette contained sesame, which the teenager was allergic to. However, the ingredient wasn’t listed on the packaging. The inquest was told Pret didn’t label artisan baguettes as containing sesame seeds despite six allergic reaction cases in the year before Ednan-Laperouse died. Coroner Dr Sean Cummings said: “I was left with the impression Pret hadn’t addressed the fact monitoring food allergy in a business selling more than 200 million items a year was something to be taken very seriously indeed.” The family’s lawyer, Jill Paterson, of Leigh Day, said: “The law as it stands currently treats multinational companies in the same way as a local sandwich shop. This cannot be right.” Pret chief executive Clive Schlee told the BBC: “We cannot begin to comprehend the pain the family have felt and the grief they will continue to feel. We’ve listened to everything the coroner and Natasha’s family have said this week, and we will learn from it.”
