A chef is celebrating his restaurant's inclusion in Britain's eating out bible.
The Joiners Arms, in Bruntingthorpe, near Lutterworth, is in the latest edition of the Michelin Red Guide for Great Britain and Ireland.
It has also been awarded the prestigious Michelin Bib Gourmand, an accolade given to restaurants for providing "good food at great value''.
Chef and owner Stephen Fitzpatrick, who has run the Church Walk gastropub since 2002, said: "As a team, we are extremely pleased to retain our inclusion in the guide and are delighted we have maintained our standards.
"We have had an exceptionally busy year and have worked hard to maintain consistency. Our young chefs, Tina Major and Gary Mercer, work extremely hard and strive to impress at every opportunity."
The Joiners Arms is joined in the Michelin Guide by sister restaurant The Boot Room, in Millstone Lane, Leicester.
Mr Fitzpatrick said: "Both have taken on new staff this year as the number of diners has increased.
"This follows a tradition of training new chefs from scratch, and giving them an opportunity to learn their skills in an environment where standards are very high."
The only restaurant in Leicestershire and Rutland with a coveted Michelin Star in the latest publication of the guide is Hambleton Hall, by Rutland Water.
The Olive Branch, in nearby Clipsham, lost its star after 10 years.
The Red Lion, in Stathern, the Vale of Belvoir, and The Berkeley Arms, in Wymondham, near Melton, also received the Bib Gourmand.
