Stephen Harris' self-proclaimed 'grotty' gastropub The Sportsman was named the UK's best restaurant for the second year in a row at the Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards this week (12 June).

The chef - who is entirely self-taught - is one of the few in the UK to practice true terroir cooking, with butter churned in-house and seawater boiled down to make salt.

We caught up with Harris at the awards to find out how last year's win has impacted the pub, and what's next for the UK's best restaurant.
