Moor Hall Tops National Restaurant Awards

Awards season is in full swing and while we are all counting down to the ‘Big One’ the World’s 50 Best Restaurants sponsored by S.Pellegrino, there are more than enough appetizers to whet the appetite.

One such event is the National Restaurant Awards which features a list of the 100 best restaurants in Great Britain. The 2019 edition has named two Michelin star Lancashire restaurant Moor Hall as the nation’s best.

Last year’s winner Kiln, a tiny Thai grill in London’s Soho loses out, while Tomos Parry’s innovative Brat restaurant comes in as runner up. Tom Browne’s Corner Stone in Hackney Wick takes third, while Clare Smyth’s Core takes forth for the second year running. Nieves Barragan-Mohacho’s Sabor drops two places to fifth, while Monica Galetti’s Mere is in at seventh. Claude Bosi’s two Michelin star Bibendum is in eighth place and Brett Graham’s The Ledbury completes the top 10.

London’s booming fine dining scene is recognised with seven of the top 10 restaurants in the awards but the complete 100 includes destinations from Sheffield, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Berkshire and Co, Down. Heston Blumenthal’s once all-conquering Fat Duck comes in at only 58th place.

Other awards on the night went to newly opened Emilia - 'One to Watch', and Northern Irish chef Clare Smyth took home 'Chef of the Year'.
