2 min read

It’s no secret that London’s culinary scene is one of the world’s best.

And as it turns out it’s also the UK’s best.

OpenTable has published their list of the UK’s top restaurants for 2021 and the capital has dominated.

The restaurant reservation company has analysed nearly one million reviews and compiled a list of where Brits love to eat.

And on that list, a massive 63 of the restaurants are in London.

One of the top restaurants is Andrew Edmunds in Soho.

The relaxed restaurant opened in 1985 and considers itself “one of the last bastions of ‘old Soho'”.

The menu changes frequently, but expect dishes like confit duck leg, whole bakes sole with brown butter, and sticky toffee pudding.

Another London spot loved by diners is Beza Ethiopian Vegan Restaurant in Elephant and Castle.

Their menu is completely vegan and gluten free, and serve a huge variation of colourful stews.

And Bistro Union in Clapham, which serves up classic British fare, also made the list.

With three courses at £40, diners can pick from a list of starters, mains and desserts such as chicken terrine, rump of lamb, and honeyed Basque cheesecake.

Restaurants outside of central London also made the list, like One One Four in Teddington, which aims to be “an easy mix of innovation and international cuisine with openness and rootsy warmth”.

Expect beef consommé, Gressingham duck breast, and chocolate and cranberry tart.

Even farther out in Surbiton is the French Table.

Their seasonal December menu includes pan fried stone bass with lobster risotto and leg of aged middle white pig cooked in cep butter.

For dessert, diners can choose between the likes of ginger bread and butter pudding with crème de cassis or a Gianduja chocolate brownie.
