For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

“If you want simple steak, well-delivered at a bargain price, you can’t go wrong” with these “consistent and effective” West End haunts (where “the unfashionable flat iron cut is elevated to first rank, and identified farms and rearing practices give credibility to the final product”). “Despite fairly basic surroundings, they feel somehow pleasant” even if “the queues are less great” (“they take your mobile number and text you when your table’s ready”).

Summary

“Steak and salad for a tenner – WOW!”; these “simple”, “hipster” hang outs in Soho and by Centrepoint “do what they do very well indeed”; “arrive early, but it’s always worth the wait”. A second Covent Garden site is set to open in Henrietta Street in October 2015.

Summary

“The best value-for-money steak and chips” make these trendy “no-frills” diners, in Soho and by Centrepoint “a perfect example of doing one simple thing well”; they’re “cramped” mind, and there’s “always a big queue, so get there early”.
