The Staff Canteen

Core by Clare Smyth, Moor Hall and Kitchen Table at BubbleDogs, receive two stars in the Michelin Guide UK 2019 which was launched live in London on October 1.

We're excited to announce that there are 21 new one-star restaurants and three new two-star restaurants in the Michelin Guide UK and Ireland 2019.

Core by Clare Smyth, Moor HallKitchen Table at BubbleDogs, have joined the two-star club taking their places alongside the likes of The Raby HuntMidsummer HouseRestaurant Sat Bains and L'Enclume.

The new one stars in London include Brat, Ikoyi, Sabor, Hide, Leroy and Roganic.

And from the rest of the UK, the new one stars include Rogan & Co Cartmel, Gidleigh Park, Sorrel, Tim Allen's Flitch of Bacon, Olive TreeWinteringham Fields, Salt, Oxford Kitchen, Fordwich Arms, White SwanBlackbird, Bulrush, Mews, Ichigo Ichie and Chestnut.

Commenting on the 2019 selection, Rebecca Burr, Director of the guide said: “The three owner-chefs at these new two star establishments have created fantastic restaurants that very much reflect their own personalities and philosophies.

“The inspectors have also seen exciting things happening in the Republic of Ireland this year and much of it in County Cork. The county plays host to three new one stars: Chestnut, Mews and Ichigo Ichie. There’s a lot of ability in Ireland right now. As everyone knows, the produce is stunning and it’s great to see chefs injecting such passion and personality into their food.  

“Everyone is aware of the obvious challenges currently facing the industry, but we’ve been encouraged by the number of new stars that we’ve awarded in the 2019 edition. What is particularly pleasing is seeing the number of simple little places with great food achieving a star and joining the Michelin family, like Bulrush in Bristol and Salt in Stratford-upon-Avon.”
