Michelin Guide UK 2019: Social Media Reactions

The  Staff Canteen

At a live ceremony at the BFI IMAX in London this afternoon, Michelin unveiled the new stars in the Michelin Guide UK and Ireland 2019

We've had a look at social media and collected some of our favourite reactions to the news for you.

Gordon Ramsay tweeted his congratulations to his teams. 

It was two stars for Mark Birchall, who seemed pretty lost for words:

Simon Rogan's Roganic was awarded one star in less than a year:

Daniel Clifford seems happy with Tim Allen!


Tom Parker of The White Swan, Fence is looking pretty dapper!

And not forgetting about the brilliant restaurants retaining stars for another year:

Many felt that a few restaurants were missing from tonight's reveal...

Including Jay Rayner, who added his thoughts to Phil Howard's tweet.

Especially in the North!

Mark and Shauna Froydenlund expressed their sadness at losing one of their stars at Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley.

Marcus Wareing himself also tweeted his surprise.

Tom Sellers simply tweeted a broken heart to express his sadness.

And Le Champignon Sauvage's PR company shared this statement from David and Helen Everitt-Matthias about losing one of their stars:

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts”. Winston Churchill. . "Firstly congratulations to #georgeblogg @gravetyemanor @chefmattworswick @chef_lisa_allen @macsuibhne1 for maintaining their stars and also to the new one stars awarded to @timallenchef2 and @paulfosterchef . . Our lives have revolved around @lechampsauvage since we opened over 31 years ago, and whilst we are hugely disappointed that we have lost a @michelinguide star, ultimately we cook for ourselves and our guests. . Our bookings have always been very healthy and repeat business consistently high, and so it is to our loyal customers, friends, chefs and industry colleagues that we extend a very heartfelt thanks for their loyal and continued support."
