Six British Michelin Green Star restaurants in 2022

Everything you need to know about the Michelin Green Star

  • What is the Michelin Green Star?

    The Green Star highlights restaurants at the forefront of the industry when it comes to their sustainable practices. It was introduced to the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland in January 2021.

  • How many UK restaurants possess the Michelin Green Star?

    In 2021, 23 restaurants received the accolade; for 2022, that number has grown to 31.

  • What kind of things do Green Star Restaurants do?

    Many work directly with (increasingly local and on-site) growers, farmers and fishermen; forage in hedgerows and woodlands; grow plants and rear animals. They often use or source bio dynamic foods and go beyond environmental considerations to address issues related to ethics and well-being, as well as contributing to charitable and educational projects.

  • What are the Michelin inspectors looking for when they award a Green Star?

    They consider things such as the provenance of the ingredients; the use of seasonal produce; the restaurant’s environmental footprint; food waste systems; general waste disposal and recycling; resource management; and the communication between the team and the guests about the restaurant’s sustainable approach.
