The MICHELIN Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2019 published
A list of all new Michelin Stars can be found below. This year’s Bib Gourmands can be found here.
Three restaurants have been newly-awarded two stars: Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs in Bloomsbury from chef James Knappett; CORE by Clare Smyth in North Kensington and Moor Hall in Aughton from Mark Birchall, which gained its first star last year.
Three pubs in England have entered the guide with one star for the first time: Blackbird outside Newbury; The White Swan in Fence, Lancashire; and, near Canterbury, Fordwich Arms in Fordwich. Simon Rogan follows the success of two Michelin-starred L’Enclume, with a star for his Rogan & Co restaurant in the same village of Cartmel and also for his London outpost, Roganic.
Commenting on the 2019 selection, Rebecca Burr, Director of the guide said: “The three owner-chefs at these new two-star establishments have created fantastic restaurants that very much reflect their own personalities and philosophies.
“The inspectors have also seen exciting things happening in the Republic of Ireland this year and much of it in County Cork. The county plays host to three new one stars: Chestnut, Mews and Ichigo Ichie. There’s a lot of ability in Ireland right now. As everyone knows, the produce is stunning and it’s great to see chefs injecting such passion and personality into their food.
No new stars for Scotland 🙁
