I have now been running this website for just over twenty years (since August 1994), with weekly restaurant updates since 2006. In that time I have posted reviews of over 1,300 restaurants, in some cases with multiple reviews/visits. As far as I know it is the longest running restaurant review website. I have covered every three star Michelin restaurant in a ten-year period, completing a visit to all that existed in 2004, and keeping up with all promotions by Michelin in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014. As of June 2014 there were 110 three star places, and I have reviewed them all. Indeed over that period I have visited 150 three star establishments (counting all the ones that have since been demoted) and a similar number of two star restaurants.

It is now time for a little break, and the website reviews will take a short sabbatical for several weeks. I will resume in due course, but in the mean time happy eating and a great New Year.
