Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guides said: “The dining scene in Great Britain & Ireland continues to be both innovative and impressive.
"With a new Three Michelin Star and six new Two Star restaurants, the selection’s global standing has grown even further.
"Among all of the newly awarded Stars, both the quality and variety of the dining experiences are wonderful to see.
"There are enormously talented chefs turning their hands to anything from wood-fired sharing plates to finely tuned sushi.
"To have so much positive news to share with the industry, at a time when restaurants are facing so many challenges, gives me great pride and is proof of the continued vitality within British and Irish dining.
"That this has happened in the 50th year of the Great Britain & Ireland Guide is proof of how much gastronomy has grown and evolved in that time.”
Ryan McHarg from The Spence at The Gleneagles Townhouse in Edinburgh was awarded the Michelin Exceptional Cocktails Award.
Michelin said: "Housed within the beautifully ornate Gleneagles Townhouse Hotel in the very centre of Edinburgh, The Spence makes a fine setting for a cocktail.
"Their list includes ‘Townhouse Classics’, inspired by the six imposing statues that adorn the front of the hotel. When it comes to deciding, Ryan McHarg and his team are on hand to help; they are genial, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their bar."

2. The Glenturret LaLique
The Glenturret Lalique has gained a coveted second star, The Glenturret Lalique restaurant is the first fine dining establishment within a distillery in Scotland and opened in 2021. The restaurant is headed by former Number One at the Balmoral head chef Mark Donald. Of the accolade Mark said: "It's a huge moment for Scotland but for whisky too".

3. Cail Bruich
Glasgow's first Michelin Star in 14 years was awarded to Cail Bruich in 2021. Head chef of Cail Bruich, Lorna McNee, brought the star home to the city just over five months into her first head chef role at the west end restaurant. Cail Bruich, which also has three AA Rosettes as well as one Michelin star, was opened in 2008 by brothers Chris and Paul Charalambous who ran the kitchen and front of house respectively.
Edinburgh’s Condita retained their one Star rating. The Michelin Guide says: "Chef Conor Toomey offers a surprise menu where interesting modern dishes are confidently prepared and skilfully presented. "A hand-drawn bookmark picturing some of the ingredients hints at what is to come; produce is British but it’s the quality that dictates the origin, not the location." Photo: Spiros Katridis
