Rémy Martin Awards

XO Excellence Award 2010

Best All-Round Restaurant – London
Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley

Famously once number two to England's most prominent chef, Marcus Wareing has got off to a roaring start trading under his own name. Formerly called Pétrus (and part of the Gordon Ramsay empire), the restaurant at this grand Knightsbridge hotel – always of very high quality – has upped its already very skillful game now it has Marcus's name over the door. The year 2010 will present an amusing challenge. A new restaurant called Pétrus will be opened by Marcus's former boss, just a few hundred yards away. As London's leading hands-on chef-patron, however, Marcus faces the challenge with equanimity.

Best All-Round Restaurant – Rest of UK
Mr Underhills

This restaurant-with-rooms, on the bank of the River Terne in Ludlow, has been a fixture of the 'Ludlow phenomenon' for a dozen years. This year has seen the ratings reporters award – always impressive – rise to exceptional levels, making this the best all-round restaurant across the board. Husband-and-wife team Chris and Judy Bradley have created a welcoming and unpretentious atmosphere in the airy dining room which looks over a bright courtyard. The food has been praised for being expertly cooked and beautifully presented, the highlight being the seven-course market menu of the day, with an emphasis on locally-sourced ingredients. The food is complemented by an excellent range of reasonably-priced wines.
