The 2017 National Restaurant Awards top 100 – how many have you been to?

The 2017 National Restaurant Awards top 100 – how many have you been to?

The results of The National Restaurant Awards  are out but what we want to know is how many have you been to? Or, maybe more importantly, how many do you want to go to?

The awards, based on the votes of more than 150 industry experts, crowned The Sportsman as the National Restaurant of the Year. This is the second year running that The Sportsman, which was once described by its chef-patron Stephen Harris as a “grotty boozer by the sea”, has claimed the prestigious top spot. A former history teacher, Harris is one of a handful of UK chefs to practice terroir cooking; at The Sportsman, hams hang in the cellar, the butter is churned in house and the team even boils down seawater to make salt.

Other award winners included Red Rooster, in London, which was listed as one the One to Watch, The Lickfold Inn was given the Fit for Foodies accolade, Chef Claude Bosi received the Chefs’ Chef of the Year award and Shaun Hill won the honour of a Lifetime Achievement award.
