Newcomers to the London dining scene awarded a Michelin star included Ellory, in Hackney, and The Ninth, in Fitzrovia. Clapham's Trinity and Chelsea's The Five Fields also received stars.

The 2017 guide includes a new two Michelin star restaurant: Raby Hunt at Summerhouse, near Darlington, where self-taught chef James Close cooks unfussy, modern dishes.

Eighteen new one Michelin star establishments were revealed, including two pubs: The Wild Rabbit in Oxfordshire with Tim Allen in the kitchen; and the Crown at Burchetts Green in Berkshire, run by Simon Bonwick and his family.

The Lake District received two new Michelin stars: Forest Side and Gilpin Hotel, while Dublin has another Michelin star in Heron & Grey.

In Wales, Sosban & The Old Butchers in Anglesey gained a Michelin star, as did James Sommerin in Penarth.

Rebecca Burr, Editor of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2017, said: "London's great variety of establishments, its history, but also its dynamism and vitality are illuminated by the capital's new Michelin stars.

"The Ritz Restaurant and Veeraswamy, London's oldest Indian restaurant, both receive one Michelin star. These establishments have long and illustrious histories, but the cooking at both has never been better than it is today.

"There have been some excellent additions to the guide across both Great Britain and Ireland - restaurants that are producing consistently good food using excellent ingredients."
