The Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2017 has been published. Find out who has won what here >>

We’ve pulled together all the information you could want on Michelin-starred restaurants in the UK and Ireland into one easy-to-use resource. Whether you’re looking for the nearest Michelin-starred restaurant to your location, their website or information about how a restaurant gets a Michelin star you can find it here. 

As well as a comprehensive listing of three-Michelin-star, two-Michelin-star and one-Michelin-star restaurants in the UK, you can find the latest Michelin news; some typical menus; links to related blogs and a link to dedicated forums.

What the stars mean

 One Michelin star: A very good restaurant or pub in its category
The star indicates a good place to stop on your journey. But beware of comparing the star given to an expensive de luxe establishment with that of a simple restaurant where you can appreciate fine cooking at a reasonable price. 

 Two Michelin stars: Excellent cooking, worth a detour
Specialities and wines of first class quality. This will be reflected in the price

 Three Michelin stars: Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey
One always eats here extremely well, sometimes superbly. Fine wines, faultless service, elegant surroundings. One will pay accordingly!
