Describing the new addition to the guide, the Michelin Guide said: “Home is staffed almost exclusively by family members, with James Sommerin and his daughter Georgia working together in the open kitchen.

“It’s a surprise menu – if you can resist opening the envelope on your table – and the impeccable dishes make great use of Welsh produce. Expect an intimate and immersive experience.”

Located on the seafront, it first opened its doors six months ago and quickly became one of the country’s finest culinary venues.

Top chef James Sommerin first started as a commis chef at the Cwrt Bleddyn, near Caerleon, before moving to work at Farleyer House Hotel, Perthshire, Scotland.

Mr Sommerin joined The Crown at Whitebrook, Monmouthshire in 2000 as sous chef and became executive chef in 2003.

Under his control, The Crown at Whitebrook gained a Michelin star in 2007, which it retained for seven years until it ceased trading in March 2013 before it later reopened.
