Who’s in and who’s out of the 2023 Michelin Guide

Last night’s launch of the 2023 edition of the Great Britain and Ireland Michelin Guide saw a number of restaurants gain stars – but also a few lose their place in the prestigious guidebook.

At last night’s ceremony at Silverstone circuit, the winners of the race to secure coveted stars in the tyre manufacturer’s famous guide was announced. In total, 74 of the 206 restaurants to have stars (excluding green stars) are in London, including five of the eight three-star spots.

21 new one-star and three new two-star restaurants were announced, bringing the total for one-star restaurants up to 173, and up to 25 for two-star restaurants.


New two-star restaurants:

Alex Dilling at Hotel Café Royal, City of Westminster

Dede, Baltimore, Republic of Ireland

Ledbury, Kensington & Chelsea


New one-star restaurants:

Àclèaf, Plymouth

Cycene, Shoreditch

Gidleigh Park, Devon

Grace and Savour, Solihull

Heron, Leith

Heft, Grange-over-Sands

Luca, Clerkenwell

Lumiere, Cheltenham

The Pass, Horsham

Pentonbridge Inn, Carlisle

Terre, County Cork

The Tudor Pass, Egham

Restaurant Twenty-Two, Cambridge

The Samling, Windermere

So-lo, Aughton

Solstice, Newcastle

St. Barts, Farringdon

Store, Stoke Holy Cross

Taku, Westminster

Timberyard, Edinburgh

Woven by Adam Smith, Coworth Park (was previously Restaurant Coworth Park, but re-opened in September last year with a new name, concept and menus)


There was no change at the top, with all eight three-star restaurants retaining the distinction. No restaurants dropped from the two-star stratum either.

Additionally, four restaurant have been newly-awarded green stars, the distinction bestowed by the guide in recognition of sustainable gastronomy.


New green star restaurants:

Apricity, Mayfair

Crocadon, St. Mellion

Culture, Falmouth

Osip, Somerset

While no two or three star establishments dropped stars, some one star restaurants have now lost their spots.

One surprise deletion was Seven Park Place, which db recently reviewed. William Drabble’s restaurant in St. James’s Hotel & Club Mayfair has had a star since 2010, just one year after opening.  Another was The Woodspeen, in the Berkshire village of Newbury.

The remaining six of the eight restaurants to lose star status have shut in the last year.


The Michelin-starred restaurants to close, and therefore lose their place, are as follows:

Casamia, Bristol

The Glasshouse, Richmond-Upon-Thames

Loam, Galway

Maos, Tower Hamlets

Restaurant Tristan, Horsham

Thomas Carr 1873, Ilfracombe


Though there were a few surprises in the launch of the Great Britain and Ireland Michelin Guide, the launch of the French guide resulted in several controversies, with Guy Savoy and Gwendal Poullennec’s restaurants losing three star status and concerns raised over sexism.
