Foodies everywhere, rejoice! The Michelin Guide results for 2017 have been released, which means there could be a Michelin-starred restaurant somewhere near you…
Still considered to be the most important guide to fine dining in the world, the Michelin Guide rounds up the restaurants that have excelled in the areas of innovation and creativity in food.
Currently there are only four restaurants in the whole of the UK to boast the coveted Three Michelin Stars, with one of them being a new entry for this year. There’s one new restaurant to be added to the list of eateries boasting two stars, and out of the 147 restaurants that have one star, 17 are new entries for this year.

The Fat Duck, Three Stars

After a temporary relocation to Australia, The Fat Duck regained its Three-Star status, rejoining the ranks of Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, Gordon Ramsay and its neighbour in Bray, The Waterside Inn. An exquisite culinary experiment, The Fat Duck targets all the senses, delivering an experience, rather than simply a meal. At £255 a head it’s not cheap, but a must to tick off the list for any foodie.
