Michelin Picks the Best U.K. Restaurants

Gordon Ramsay protege Clare Smyth is one of three to win accolades, but no one new has achieved the top rank of three Michelin stars.

Gordon Ramsay was on hand to congratulate his former leading chef Clare Smyth today as her restaurant was one of three in the U.K. to join the list with two stars in the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2019.

Core by Clare Smyth, which opened to widespread acclaim in 2017, was too late for inclusion in the 2018 guide and skipped the most common route of initially winning a single star. There were two star additions also for Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs, in London; and for Moor Hall, a restaurant with rooms in the countryside of northern Lancashire.
