Michelin star 1 Michelin star

James Lowe's restaurant at the Tea Building in Shoreditch proved that a restaurant in Shoreditch could gain a Michelin star. This all-day restaurant showcases his food with a regularly changing menu. Look out for special guests popping in from time to time. And they serve a damn fine coffee throughout the day.

252 High Holborn, London WC1V 7EN
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

The main reason for the rise of Holborn Dining Room's fortunes is down to the work of their head chef, Calum Franklin. Follow him on Instagram if you want to be permanently hungry and also to marvel what he's able to do with pastry. While the whole menu deserves praise, you really need to aim for anything pie-related on the menu (there's always a special pie section on the menu) and you'll be sure of a work of genius here.

He's worked with the likes of Rene Redzepi at Noma, and with Tom Aikens, Adam Byatt and Thomas Keller. Now Tom Sellers has his own restaurant in London called Story.

The Floral Hall, Stoney Street, London SE1 1TL
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

A classic London Bridge restaurant, Roast has a very British feel to the menu and - as you may guess from the name - does a mean roast dinner. It's one of the longest-serving restaurants in Borough Market with a super view over the market.

This is Marcus Wareing's outpost at King's Cross - a lavish bar and restaurant in the St Pancras Hotel.

There's an excellent bar alongside, which is worth a visit even if you're not going to the restaurant.
