The New Michelin Stars for 2014 have been announced.

As you probably know if you are in the hospitality sector, the Michelin Guide is a series of annual guide books which are the oldest and best-known European hotel and restaurant reference guide. They award Michelin stars for excellence, through a secret process, to just a select few establishments.

Why is a Michelin star so prestigious?
The acquisition or loss of a star can have dramatic effects on the success of a restaurant and each time the guide is published, it always sparks a media frenzy.

So, who has a Michelin star in the UK?
