The Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards – brought to you by Restaurant magazine - celebrate the brilliance and vibrancy of the UK restaurant scene, and reward the very best chefs and operators the country has to offer. On the night of the awards, we reveal the list of the 100 best restaurants in the UK – as voted for by our academy of chefs, restauranteurs and food writers – as well as presenting a series of specific awards for individual categories culminating in the unveiling of the National Restaurant of the year. The National Restaurant Awards – now in its eleventh year – changed format in 2014, moving to a summer date and offering guests and our commercial partners an experiential event with sampling, networking and celebration. The awards are the largest annual gathering of top chefs and restaurateurs in the UK. In 2017, 94 of the top 100 restaurants were in attendance, as well as our commercial partners who want to network with their potential clients. With the standards of food, wine and service increasing year-on-year in the UK, the National Restaurant Awards champion the heroes of the sector.
