Popular Stockport restaurant Where The Light Gets In has been recognised by Michelin for its continued achievements in sustainability, becoming one of the first recipients of a new green Michelin star. The announcement – which was made during a virtual ceremony hosted by Davina McCall last night – was Manchester’s only recognition at this year’s awards following Mana’s big win last year which marked the arrival of the city’s first Michelin star in over forty years.

Owned and operated by chef Sam Buckley, this 30-seater space opened its doors back in 2016, transforming an old Stockport coffee shop into a 30-seater restaurant where diners are presented with an ever-changing menu created with whatever locally sourced ingredients are available that day. With each dish a surprise, this thrifty, sustainable and eco-friendly ethos quickly earned Buckley’s venue buckets of praise – which continues into 2021 with this tip of the hat from Michelin.

Other recipients of Michelin’s new green star include Chester’s Hypher and L’Enclume in the Lake District. Stay up to date with all the latest news from Where The Light Gets In by visiting their website or following their team on Instagram.
