Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester has joined The Fat Duck, The Waterside Inn and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay as a three star restaurant in the 2010 Michelin Guide for Great Britain & Ireland.

The Ledbury was the only new two star restaurant, joining 13 others while 18 establishments, four of them pubs, picked up their first Michelin star.

The 2010 edition of the UK guide was due to be released on Tuesday (19 January), but Michelin took the decision to release news of the list today after it found out books had been sent out ahead of the publication date.

Guide editor Derek Bulmer said establishments who had been more 'flexible and creative' during the recession had generally been more successful.

"There is now a greater geographical spread of starred restaurants and the inspectors will continue to seek out establishments serving particularly good food, wherever they are situated," he said.

“As we head into this new decade, the hotel and restaurant industry appears to be leaner and fitter. Greater emphasis is being placed on satisfying customers’ needs; diversity continues to be one of the UK’s greater strengths and the public’s interest in chefs, food and cooking shows no sign of abating.”

Previous two-star restaurants The Capital, which saw the departure of Eric Chavot last year and The Vineyard at Stockcross, who lost John Campbell to Coworth Park, have both lost their stars while 13 restaurants, including Bath Priory, Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, Seaham Hall and Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's - lost their stars.
