The Event

The Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards celebrate the brilliance and vibrancy of the UK’s eating out scene, and reward the very best chefs, front of house staff and restaurants 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, restaurateurs and food writers – as well as present a series of individual awards, culminating in the unveiling of the National Restaurant of the Year.

The National Restaurant Awards are an annual summer celebration held at London’s exclusive Hurlingham Club. The awards night also signals the start of the National Restaurant Awards programme, which involves a series of meals, sampling and networking events held for the independent restaurant sector throughout the year.

The awards are the largest annual gathering of top chefs and restaurateurs in the UK. In 2018 more than 90 of the top 100 restaurants were represented at the event.
