Are these Britain’s 100 best restaurants?

Moor Hall, a two-Michelin stars restaurant in the scenic county of Lancashire, has been named Britain’s best restaurant, beating out London’s finest dining options for a second time.

Chef Mark Birchall opened Moor Hall Restaurant with Rooms in 2017 and it has become a destination, even though it’s 215 miles from the capital. Moor Hall is set in five acres of gardens in a house of mid-16th-century origins in rural Aughton, Lancashire.

The Angel at Hetton, a gastropub in North Yorkshire, placed second, while three-Michelin-star Core by Clare Smyth in Notting Hill placed third in the Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards.

For the first time, half of the restaurants on the list are outside of London. Still, chefs based in London won many of the individual awards including Chef of the Year (Andrew Wong for A Wong in Victoria), the Service Award (Daniel Humm for Davies and Brook at Claridge’s) and Chef to Watch (Tom Booton for The Grill at The Dorchester).

The annual rankings announced this month were calculated from the votes of more than 200 experts including chefs and critics who submit their best restaurant experiences over the past 12 months across the UK, taking into consideration the quality of the food, service, atmosphere and price.
