Most of us can’t afford the luxury of Michelin-star level fine dining on a regular basis, but it might not be as expensive as you think!

We’ve scoured each Michelin-starred restaurant in the UK to find out where you can enjoy a three-course evening meal for the least, with some charging less than £25!

We’ve also broken things down by region and Michelin-star rating, with the cheapest meal at a two-star restaurant coming in at £69 and £105 at one of the country’s three five-star restaurants.

Methodology/Sources

We looked at each of the 163 Michelin starred restaurants for 2019 in the UK (according to Great British Chefs).

For each, we took the price of the cheapest starter, main course and dessert for an evening meal from the à la carte menu, although many restaurants only offer a set price, which sometimes included more than three courses.

We omitted 12 of the restaurants, such as tapas and sushi restaurants where the focus is on small plates which would not be comparable with a traditional three-course meal, as well as those that didn’t provide pricing information on their websites.

Note: Some of the menus of these restaurants change on a daily basis, while many just provide sample menus. All prices were correct according to the restaurants’ websites, as of April 23rd 2018.
