Michelin Reveals Great Britain and Ireland Guide 2022

Discover the 25 restaurants awarded new stars in this year's Michelin Guide.

By Emma Al-Mousawi

The most notable date in the British and Irish culinary calendar has arrived as the Michelin Guide today announced its new stars for 2022 in Great Britain and Ireland at its annual Michelin Star Revelation ceremony. 

For a second year, the ceremony was held online due to the pandemic, with 25 restaurants awarded new stars.

L’Enclume is the only restaurant in the 2022 Guide to be awarded three stars and the first in the North of England to achieve the prestigious accolade. Chef Simon Rogan’s flagship Lake District restaurant was praised for producing highly refined and creative dishes using exemplary produce from its own 12-acre farm.

Rogan, who is celebrating L’Enclume’s 20th anniversary this year, said: “You could say it’s fantastic timing that we’ve received this news 20 years since I opened the doors of L’Enclume, which feels like forever but also just like yesterday.

“Following the win of our second star nine years ago, achieving a third star has always been front of mind and something we’ve been striving for every day; be it through the evolution of our dishes and honing of our service-style, the meticulous work undertaken on Our Farm, or how we work to make every one of our guests feel, from when they enter the restaurant to the moment they leave.

“We might have grown our operation over the past two decades, but we’ve remained true to our core ethos and maintained the close-knit community feel amongst our team, whilst all this time proudly remaining as an independent restaurant group. This is an incredible week for us all and it’s going to take some time for it to truly sink in, but we will be celebrating this moment for a long time to come.”

Other noteworthy Michelin Guide Britain and Ireland 2022 winners include a star for chef Adam Handling’s London eatery Frog, which was noted for its beautifully eye-catching cookery.

West-African-inspired Ikoyi, established by friends Iré Hassan-Odukale and chef Jeremy Chan, was awarded a second star, while London’s KOL helmed by chef Santiago Lastra became the first Mexican restaurant in the UK to hold a Michelin star.

The 2022 Michelin Guide UK and Ireland also saw the allocation of nine new Michelin Green stars. The distinction, which was launched last year, honors restaurants at the forefront of ethical and environmental standards. This includes a Green Michelin star for Moor Hall in Lancashire which already holds two-Michelin stars.
