Darren Bennet’s bistro has long been a beacon in these parts for relaxed modern British grub in a beamed setting; given its appeal, fans may be pleased to hear that he recently applied for a license to open 24 hours a day.

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).
