LONDON, July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Eat at the Best British Michelin Star Restaurants for less than you think

thetrainline.com [http://www.thetrainline.com ] have launched a guide to all the
Michelin starred restaurants in the UK. They created an infographic
[http://www.thetrainline.com/news/michelin-star-restaurants ] and embeddable Google Map
[http://www.thetrainline.com/news/michelin-star-restaurants-data ] to help consumers find
the price of the most affordable set lunch.

The map illustrates how meals at Michelin Star Restaurants can often be a lot more
affordable if consumers opt for set lunch menus. The finest dining can be enjoyed for as
little as GBP15 a head for two courses at the Hand and Flowers in Marlow. Even fine dining
in London is affordable with 3 courses at Arbutus, Soho for just GBP17.95.

The guide displays Name, Town, venue contact details, how many stars, number of
courses in the set-lunch, and cost. Colours indicate region – e.g. Scotland, Wales, South
East, Greater London etc.

Restaurants are ranked in order of the cost of a set lunch, grouped according to the
number of courses included and colour-coded by region. Users can also view a map of all
Michelin Star Restaurants in the UK, sorted by the amount of Michelin stars they have.
