The annual OpenTable list of the top 100 restaurants in the UK is back after its 2020 hiatus and is based on more than 960,000 reviews from restaurants across the UK – all submitted by verified OpenTable diners.

British cuisine still tops the list at 16%, followed by Modern European at 10% – both however, have lost ground to a surge in steakhouses which now make up 10% of the top 100 list, which – due to the pandemic – is not ranked this year.

Robin Chiang, VP, of OpenTable commented: “After the pandemic prompted a year’s hiatus of our Top 100 list, we are pleased to once again share a selection of our diner’s favourite restaurants, showcasing the brilliant breadth of dining experiences available across the UK.

“Reviews are an important part of the OpenTable service, enabling customers to give authentic feedback on their dining experience and helping others to discover great restaurants. In 2021 London continued to offer a fantastic selection of restaurants, but the list also clearly shows the love diners have developed for local restaurants and neighbourhood hot spots in the last year.”  

Congratulations to all of the restaurants featured!
