For 30 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).

"Outside dining here has been a real lockdown treat this year. Even the takeaway beer in milk cartons. Great seafood, like Basque Crab or Oysters. Fairly priced beer and an interesting wine list. The staff are friendly and helpful. Each time we visit we are impressed."
