Michelin Red Guide 2013 restaurant stars revealed

The Oscars of the UK and Ireland restaurant world have just been revealed in London. The Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2013 has the power to make or break a restaurant as the 'Michelin stars' accolade is gifted or taken away.

Always the centre of controversy amid suggestions that the French-originating Michelin guide is out of step with British cuisine and the average diner, the star system used in the Michelin 'Red Guide' remains the key yardstick by which all UK restaurants are judged.

The Michelin guide is the Oscars of the foodie world, with stars being dished out to UK restaurants after extensive inspections.

Earlier there was a bit of a kerfuffle at Michelin HQ in Paris after their sister site in the US accidentally revealed the 2013 Michelin Red Guide results for the UK online.

Results weren't due to be revealed until next Thursday with the publication of the 2013 guide but were accidentally revealed online and shared through Twitter.

The leak revealed that all four of the UK's existing three-star restaurants, including Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal's restaurant The Fat Duck, have retained their elite three-star status.

Subsequently, we confirmed the complete results with Michelin. This year marks another intriguing year for the UK restaurant scene, which has shown a surprising resilience to tough economic times. The latest awards suggest that, while many of us have reined in our spending, there are still enough high-rollers to keep the British dining scene in pretty rude health.

Key highlights from the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2013

  • Heston Blumenthal's pub The Hind's Head receives a Michelin star
  • The UK's four three-star restaurants retained their stars, including Restaurant Gordon Ramsay
  • Two new one-star venues for Northern Ireland

There are 18 new one-stars, bringing the total to 138 UK-wide. There are three new two-star restaurants, bringing the total to 20 UK-wide.
