Trinity and Scott’s Restaurant maintain their top 10 status from last year, while new entries include Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Brawn, and The Five Fields.

For the second year running, London holds nine out of ten spots in this year’s top 10, with Birmingham’s Gaijin Sushi making its way into eighth place. While London represents 77% of the list this year, it sees a drop from 81% compared to 2018, as prestigious restaurants from Bristol, Manchester and Newcastle work their way onto the list.

Following from last year, British food (19%) continues to dominate the top 100 above its main competitor, Modern European (12%), as diners look to enjoy tastes from closer to home.

Adrian Valeriano, VP EMEA of OpenTable, comments: “Diner reviews are a fundamental part of OpenTable’s service, enabling customers to not only leave their thoughts on the food and experience but to help other diners find the right restaurant for them by giving honest and authentic feedback.  

“This year’s reviews continue to demonstrate that London is the UK’s culinary capital, although that might not be the case for long, as restaurants from the North and East of England make their debut in the Top 100, highlighting the incredible selection of restaurants across the nation.”

Congratulations to all the restaurants featured on this year’s Top 100 list and thank you to everyone who took the time to write a review.
