This year’s Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland was launched in January with 17 restaurants receiving a Michelin Star for the first time.
Work on the guide began in August 2019, with much of the work carried out before the first lockdown in March 2020. Readers have been assured that no shortcuts were taken – the methodology remained the same and there was no change in the standards inspectors looked for.
