Michelin to reveal 2018 Great Britain and Ireland guide on 2 October at live event

Michelin is set to reveal which restaurants in Great Britain and Ireland have won a star at a live event on 2 October in London.

It will be the second year that the Guide has been launched at such an event, with chefs from most of the new entrants to the guide expected to be in attendance.

The event is due to kick off at 11:30am at the Brewery in London, near the Barbican.

The Guide also includes details of those establishments to win a Bib Gourmand, which recognises those restaurants serving high quality three-course meals for under £28.

Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guides, who will announce the news live on stage said: "This is the second time that Michelin Stars have been revealed at a live event since the Michelin Guide to the British Isles was introduced in 1911, so we are very excited.

"The Michelin Guide was first published in 1900 to show motorists where they could find great food and accommodation as well as essentials like tyres, and it has gone on to become a global benchmark for dining quality.

"We are proud of that heritage, but we are also proud that we are more relevant today than ever before. Our clients value our consistency, our independence and our expertise, and we will continue to reflect the changing face of eating out in Great Britain and Ireland."

More than 3,000 places to eat and sleep are recommended in The Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland.

Rebecca Burr, editor of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland, added: "It is always incredibly exciting to see the ever-evolving food landscape of Great Britain and Ireland. It is rich and diverse, and there is real talent coming through which is putting both countries firmly on the global culinary map.

"The Michelin Guide caters for every type of customer, whether that's a business traveller, couples dining out or families on holiday. Michelin inspectors will continue to make anonymous visits and to pay their own bills, and we will continue to offer expert, objective and consistent information to our readers."

Last year, Heston Blumenthal's the Fat Duck in Bray, Berkshire, regained its three stars, while Gidleigh Park in Chagford, Devon, retained its two stars despite the departure of Michael Caines and the arrival of Michael Wignall.

The only restaurant to win two new Michelin stars was James Close's the Raby Hunt near Darlington. No new three stars were awarded.
