Widely regarded as the hallmark of fine dining, the Michelin star is arguably one of the most sought-after awards for many chefs, and is the sign of dining excellence.
There are currently four restaurants in the United Kingdom which hold three Michelin stars.
The Waterside Inn
The Restaurant was founded by the brothers Michel and Albert Roux and currently run by Michel’s son, Alain. Gaining their first Michelin star in 1974 when the guide originally came out, a second followed in 1977, and in 1985 the Waterside Inn was awarded three-Michelin-star status. Today, no other British restaurant can claim to have held three Michelin stars for so long.
名厨世家─鲁氏所经营的餐厅，也是英国历来稳守三星地位最久的餐厅。此餐厅是由鲁氏兄弟创设，如今已传给第二代的 Alain Roux 掌厨。他们于1974年在米其林首次在英国发布指南即获一星，相隔三年摘得二星，并于1985年获颁三星迄今，是英国史无前例的创举。
