The MICHELIN Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2019 is the definitive resource for carefully researched, objective recommendations to 2,200 restaurants, including 600 pubs and 1,500+ hotels with 500 B&B's in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Anonymous inspectors use the famed Michelin food star rating system to create a substantive selection of restaurants across the British Isles, offering a diverse choice for all budgets. Visitors can craft a memorable trip by relying on the recommendations in this annually updated guide with its descriptive symbols and helpful maps. Our famous one, two and three stars identify establishments serving the highest quality cuisine – taking into account the quality of ingredients, the mastery of technique and flavors, the levels of creativity and, of course, consistency. In addition, the Bib Gourmand symbol (also known as the inspectors' favorites) highlights restaurants offering good quality at a good value. Bib Gourmands are awarded for simple yet skillful cooking for under £28 or €40.
