survey result

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

“Mark Wilkinson seems to be taking the cuisine to another level” at his “small but perfectly formed” 12-cover foodie Mecca, on the fringe of Birkenhead. His “dazzling, flavour-packed and perfect” dishes are married with “playful” décor and “superb and attentive” service. “Hard to get a booking, but worth the hassle!”

Summary

“It’s impossible to book” nowadays at Marc Wilkinson’s “one-of-a-kind” (and fairly small) Wirral dining room (perhaps something to do with his success last year, when he topped our Top-100 UK Restaurants?) “You should keep trying though as you won’t be disappointed”“brilliant dish follows brilliant dish” from “an amazing menu full of surprises”.

Summary

“Mark Wilkinson is a brilliant one-of-a-kind”, and his “marvellous”, “artful” cuisine made this “serene” but unshowy Wirral dining room this year’s UK’s No. 1 in the survey; “in Tour de France parlance, «hors catégorie!»”.

Summary

“An amazing culinary delight in an unlikely setting”; “exciting”, “exquisite”… – the plaudits for Marc Wilkinson’s “ever more innovative” cuisine go on and on (and it’s “ridiculously cheap too, given the technique involved”); “just wish it was easier to get a table…”
