Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's, Locanda Locatelli and the Number One restaurant at the Balmoral hotel, Edinburgh, are among 16 restaurants celebrating today after being awarded one Michelin star.
Pied á Terre in Bloomsbury, London, has regained its two Michelin stars after losing one of them in 2000.
A spate of restaurant closures has meant that Michelin has had to remove stars from a number of high-profile restaurants, including La Tante Claire at the Berkeley hotel, London, John Burton-Race at the Landmark hotel, London, Blinis in Bath, and Cheznico in Mayfair, London.
Michelin's 2003 edition of the Red Guide Great Britain & Ireland is published today 17 January.
