Every New Michelin-Starred Restaurant In The UK & Ireland

Every year, the brightest stars in the restaurant industry descend on the capital for the culinary ceremony of the year: the unveiling of the Michelin Guide. This year, the awards took place virtually, and threw out some bold new choices. Here’s where to book for a special occasion in 2022…

Yesterday, Michelin announced the UK & Ireland establishments that have made it into the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland. Usually revealed at a huge ceremony in the capital, this year’s winners were unveiled digitally.

Each year, Michelin’s team of anonymous restaurant inspectors award venues with one star (“high-quality cooking, worth a stop”), two stars (“excellent cooking, worth a detour”) or three stars (“exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey”). 

This year, the UK gained one of the latter for Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria. It joins top restaurants The Lecture Room & Library at Sketch, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Core by Clare Smyth and Hélène Darroze at The Connaught in London, and Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck and Alain Roux’s Waterside Inn in Bray, Berkshire.

In other London news, two one-star establishments were upgraded to two stars: Ikoyi in St James’s and The Clove Club in Bethnal Green, while seven restaurants picked up their first star. Teams earning their first accolade include Kol in Marylebone, Evelyn’s Table in Soho (where the three brothers who run it – Luke, Nathaniel and Theo Selby – shared this year’s Young Chef award) and Jamavar in Mayfair. 


The evening also heralded great news for restaurants across the rest of the UK & Ireland, with eight spots picking up their first star. One notable entry was SY23 in Aberystwyth. Here, Nathan Davies – who’s currently competing on Great British Menu – serves a ten-course menu focused on foraging, pickling and fermenting. SY23 also won Michelin’s Opening of the Year award.

Last year, the guide added a Green star to its roster, which recognises sustainable gastronomy and distinguishes restaurants taking responsibility in the conversation of resources and the protection of biodiversity. Of the nine announced this year, notable winners include two-Michelin-starred Moor Hall in Lancashire, Tillingham in East Sussex and one-Michelin-starred Pensons in Worcestershire.

Last week, the Michelin Bib Gourmands were unveiled. Named after Bibendum – the Michelin Man – the Bib Gourmand distinction “highlights restaurants offering good food at competitive prices”. This year, 16 new restaurants have made it into the 2022 Great Britain & Ireland selection, including SL favourites Brutto in Clerkenwell, Manteca in Shoreditch, Humble Chicken in Soho and Burnt Orange in Brighton.
