The 2007 Michelin Guide for Great Britain & Ireland was released this week, revealing 20 new Michelin Stars for restaurants across the UK.
During the first ever live launch of the Guide at IET London Savoy Place on October 3, 18 restaurants were awarded with a Michelin Star, signifying "high quality cooking", while one received two stars, rewarding "excellent cooking" and another an impressive three stars, given out only for "exceptional cuisine."
Rebecca Burr, Editor of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2017, said: “There have been some excellent additions to the guide across both Great Britain and Ireland – restaurants that are producing consistently good food using excellent ingredients.”
