How can restaurants in the UK win a Michelin star?

For chefs across the world, winning a Michelin star is the ultimate sign of success. But what does it mean? And how do restaurants achieve the accolade?

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.

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!
