The guide, which features the best addresses for fine dining, includes Engine Social in Sowerby Bridge The Moorcock Inn at Norland near Sowerby Bridge.

The Michelin Guide said of Engine: "A traditional stone building houses this contrastingly modern restaurant where closely-set, dark wood tables look onto an open-plan kitchen with a wood-burning oven.

"It’s a friendly place formed around the concept of sharing, and the great value Mediterranean-based small plates burst with colour and flavour."

Of The Moorcock Inn the Michelin Guide said: "A substantial yet cosy stone pub on the West Yorkshire Moors; the focus here is on ethical sourcing, rare breeds and traditional techniques.

"Hearty, wholesome dishes are cooked on the BBQ and sharing is the way to go; the crispy smoked potatoes are a must. The chef makes all the plates and tableware himself."

French tyre manufacturer Michelin has been publishing food and drink guides for more than a century.

There are 13 West Yorkshire restaurants featured in the guide, seven in Leeds, two in Ilkley, one in Drighlington, one in Boston Spa and two in Calderdale.
