You can forget your gastropubs, street food pop-ups and food festivals because if it’s fine dining you’re after, dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant is bound to be something special. These restaurants are chosen to appear in the Michelin guide books, the oldest European hotel and restaurant reference guide, which awards stars for excellence to select establishments.

 

To help visitors discover the locations of these restaurants, last minute cottage holiday hub Snaptrip.com has mapped out every single Michelin-starred restaurant across the UK and Ireland, along with the most anticipated food festivals coming up in 2017.

170 restaurants in the UK and Ireland hold at least one Michelin star, and 68 of the UK’s top eateries are located in London. The new research includes 17 restaurants that have just received their first star in the latest Michelin guides. It also identifies where eight of the most anticipated food festivals taking place in 2017 are located, from Bristol’s VegFest to Meatopia at London’s Tobacco Dock.
