London Michelin Star Changes 2019 – The Winners and the Losers

October 2, 2018

“With so many world-renowned chefs, and London having one of the most diverse selections of cuisine types available anywhere in the world, the UK is a major gastronomic destination for travellers and foodies alike. With this in mind, the latest MICHELIN Guide Great Britain & Ireland perfectly reflects the strength, depth and diversity of the culinary landscape here.”

Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of MICHELIN Guides

The 2019 selection at a glance:

  • 5 three star restaurants
  • 20 two star restaurants (3 new)
  • 155 one star restaurants (21 new)
  • 143 Bib Gourmand restaurants (27 new)

I’m just listing the changes with the awards this year. Not an enormous amount of change in the Michelin Star awards for London in 2019 – one demotion and some new entries. Again, for me, the most interesting ones are the new entries – get those table reservations in!

  1. A very good restaurant in its category
