Second helpings: Budget Michelin dining

The Masons Arms

Knowstone, Devon, tel: 01398 341 231

While it looks like a lost-in-time, thatched 13th-century cottage, the dining is far more refined than trencherman's fare – yet a three-course dinner is just £29.95

Arbutus

63-64 Frith Street, London W1, tel: 020 7734 4545

Anthony Demetre combines dazzling skills, fierce seasonality, cheaper cuts and sustainable fish to produce a never boring, fairly priced menu. His three-course £15.50 lunch is a steal

The Stagg Inn

Titley, Herefordshire, tel: 01544 230 221

Steve Reynolds' locally sourced, carefully cooked food is worth a detour, given that it is priced more like a friendly country local (which it is) than a Michelin-starred restaurant
