Aughton is a gastronomic wonder: an English village where you can dine in four Michelin-starred restaurants
Aughton is a small provincial village located in Lancashire, a few minutes from Liverpool. This seemingly unremarkable place can surprise travelers and treat them to delicious food.
In a few years, Aughton has become a real gastronomic haven, and the most ambitious and skillful chefs choose this place to demonstrate their skills in their own restaurants. The area is relatively quiet and borders a group of residential villages. In addition, there is a city train station, which allows tourists to visit the village, taste dishes in famous Michelin restaurants, and continue on to Liverpool, the Liverpool Echo reported.
In general, despite its tiny area, Aughton has 4 Michelin-starred restaurants. They make gourmets from all over the world travel to the small village to taste the dishes of local chefs. We are talking about 3 restaurants: 2 stars were awarded to Moor Hall, 1 star to its sister restaurant The Barn's and the newest recipient of this award, So-Lo.
It is noted that Moor Hall's executive chef, Mark Birchall, started Aughton's journey to become a fine dining village. He received his first star in 2017 and another one a year later. Then, in 2022, The Barn's restaurant received the award.
So-Lo was the last restaurant to receive a star in 2023 thanks to the menu by chef Tim Allen. The menu, based on the principle of "modern but affordable, nothing superfluous," won over the Michelin judges, who are known to be very difficult to please.
