Michelin Star winners 2018  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. Michelin stars are awarded for excellence, through a secret process, to just a select few establishments each year.

If you want to be a Michelin Star winner  you have to work hard and prove you really are top of your game. As well as gaining a star. it’s also possible to lose a star too – as standards are always exceptionally high.

Why is being a Michelin star winner 2018 so important?

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

Losing a star is like losing your elite acceptance into a very prestigious club. Gaining a star is deemed to be an amazing achievement through hard work and demonstration of skill and ability in the world of food and drink.

The best chefs in the UK can easily lose star, and 13 restaurants alone lost their stars this year due to closure like Dabbous in London, refurbishment like The Samling or following strict assessments from the inspectors.

So, who has won new Michelin stars in the UK?

Well there is one new three star winner, which is just one of 5 in the UK to hold the top accolade, one new 2 star winner and 16 new one star winners.

Just one of those is in the North West of England – Moor Hall, now run by former chef Mark Birchall (ex 2 starred L’Enclume, Cumbria), the majority are in London and The South.
