Michelin Guide Results 2018

The biggest date on the culinary calendar is back. The Michelin Guide returns once more to unveil this year’s group of Michelin star restaurants in the UK and Ireland. Still considered as the most important guide to eating out in the world, Michelin inspectors have spent the last twelve months dining in the places that encapsulate everything incredible about the world of food and drink. Take a look at the Michelin Guide results for 2018 below.

There were sixteen new one-star entries this year, with Claude Bosi’s latest venture Bibendum rocketing straight into the select group of two Michelin-starred restaurants. There was also the rare announcement of a new three-star establishment – The Araki, which received two stars last year, now joins the four other restaurants in the UK to hold the coveted position.

2017 has seen quite a few Michelin star chefs open new restaurants, and their hard work was well rewarded. Phil Howard and Michael Caines both won a star for their respective restaurants Elystan Street and Lympstone Manor. There was also a special recognition awards presented at the beginning of the ceremony – the front of house team of Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs was given the Michelin Welcome Service Award 2018.

Other notable wins include A Wong in London, where head chef Andrew Wong won a star for his incredible Chinese cuisine. Mark Birchall also gained recognition for his ambitious project Moor Hall in Lancashire, while Fred Clapperton clinched a star for The Clock House (formerly Drakes), proving he was more than able to take over from previous chef-owner Steven Drake.

Michelin-starred Dabbous closed and therefore lost a star. Other restaurants that have lost their Michelin stars this year are The Samling (Cumbria); Bath Priory (Somerset); Turners @ 69 (Birmingham); Lords of the Manor (Gloucestershire); Alimentum (Cambridge); Ocean at the Atlantic (Jersey); Sir Charles Napier (Buckinghamshire); The Wild Rabbit (Oxfordshire); The Treby Arms (Devon); 5 North St (Gloucestershire); Isle of Eriska (Scotland) and Kinloch Lodge (Isle of Skye).
