Michelin Guide 2018: Two And Three-Star Restaurants In Pictures
Four restaurants have retained their three-star rating in the newly released Michelin Guide 2018: Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck, Alain Roux’s Waterside Inn in Bray, Berkshire, Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester in Park Lane and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea (which retained the award under new chef Matt Abe).
One newcomer received three stars: The Araki, a £300-per-person sushi restaurant in London with just nine seats.
A total of twenty restaurants now have two stars, including a notable new entry in the category by Claude Bosi at Bibendum, also in Chelsea.
Seventeen restaurants gained one star, bringing the total number holding a star to 150.
They include celebrity chef Tom Kerridge’s pub, The Coach, in Marlow, Aquavit in London and Michael Caines’ Lympstone Manor in Devon.
There are also stars for the Wild Honey Inn, a pub in Lisdoonvarna in Country Clare on the west coast of Ireland.
Michael Smith also won a star for Loch Bay, his restaurant in a converted crofter’s house on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.
