Oak retains ‘the best bits of Acorn’ – this upscale vegetarian restaurant went fully vegan without telling anybody and changed its name. And it earns high praise for its “unusual, top-quality” dishes. “This is the best vegan restaurant that I have been to and Richard Buckley and his staff are truly inspirational cooks – they have changed the way I cook”. (The Acorn name lives on in the monthly supper club and cookery school Richard runs in London’s Whitechapel and Hackney.)

“Now fully vegan, but you wouldn’t know – everything is so brilliantly created”: this upmarket venture, super-cutely located in the city-centre, remains one of the UK’s top non-meat destinations and is “worth a special trip” for its “exquisite” and “innovative” cooking (not least the “sublime” five-course tasting menu).

This “fancy, upmarket” restaurant (well, by the standards of grungy veggies, anyway) in a small lane in the city-centre remains one of the UK’s most distinguished non-meat destinations for its “tasty, interesting” food and “good choice of organic wines and beers”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
