Michelin Green Star Guide: The best sustainable restaurants in the UK and Ireland

In recognition of their commendable sustainable practices, 23 fine dining restaurants have been awarded a new accolade: a Michelin Green Star

A four leaf clover is the highly coveted new badge of honour in the culinary world, and not just for its links to luck. Given to restaurants that have made exceptional steps to be sustainable, the so-called Green Star is the latest accolade awarded by the Michelin Guide. Restaurants can only qualify for the symbol if they have already been awarded quality recognition from Michelin, either in the form of a star, Bib Gourmand or Plate.

Commended for holding themselves accountable for their ethical and environmental standards, and for working with sustainable producers and suppliers to avoid waste and reduce or remove plastic from their supply chain, 23 fine dining restaurants in the UK and Ireland were presented with a Green Star in the 2021 guide. All of them work directly with growers, farmers and fisherman, forage for food, grow their own plants, rear their own animals and use regenerative methods such as no-dig vegetable gardens. They are also recognised for taking steps to improve the quality of life of their staff, and for contributing to charity and educational projects. Read on for the complete list of 2021 green-starred restaurants.
