East London
Abbot Street Car Park, London, E8 3DP

Acme Food Cult is a team up between chefs Andrew Clarke and Daniel Watkins and as the name suggests, it's all about cooking over fire on an impressive grill. Right next to 40FT Brewery, expect plenty of beer in the cooking too.

green
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
29 Clerkenwell Green, Farringdon, London EC1R 0DU

In a quiet part of Clerkenwell, The Green comes from the same people who also run The Culpeper in Shoreditch. Either take it easy in the pub downstairs or head up to the first floor restaurant and you'll find the pub serving modern British food from an ever changing menu. Also look out for a Sunday lunch where they concentrate on Beef Wellington and one key roast dish.

Mark Jarvis's modern British fine dining restaurant in the heart of Farringdon serves up seasonal, inventive food from a pared back dining room. It, deservedly, won critic plaudits from the get go.

The Quality Chop House, which has been open since 1869, at one point looked in danger of disappearing forever before it was lovingly restored by Will Lander and Josie Stead. Now it's both a restaurant and wine bar featuring menus that are created in the morning based on what's been delivered. Come for the very best of British cooking, or just as easily pop in for charcuterie or wine or to pick something up from the adjoining butcher and deli.

Six Portland Road comes from Oli Barker (who used to head up Terroirs alongside Ed Wilson). It's a small 40 seater restaurant with an ever-changing European-influenced menu, always with five choices for starters, main and dessert.

Critic reviews - total score 9 out of 10

One of the biggest Hawksmoors of the standout steak group, this one has great views over Regent Street and also places a special focus on seafood dishes created by fish maestro Mitch Tonks. It's a big old room too.

The Ritz
Mayfair, Belgravia
150 Piccadilly, London W1J 9BR
Critic reviews - total score 8.5 out of 10
Michelin star 1 Michelin star

One of the best-known hotels in the world, originally opening in 1906. It's still as smart as ever and the restaurant, with chef John Williams in charge is really very good indeed. As you might have guessed, this is fine-dining French cuisine but it's one of the vanishingly-few places in London to demand a shirt and tie of male diners.

28 Upper Grosvenor Street, London W1K 7EH
Critic reviews - total score 8.5 out of 10

This is Irish celeb chef Richard Corrigan's main restaurant in London, and one where much of the produce comes from his own farm in Ireland. Expect hearty food and also a damned fine bar attached to it too, called Dickie's, where the drinks have a distinct Irish flavour.

Scott's
Mayfair, Belgravia
20 Mount Street, London W1K 2HE
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

This seafood restaurant in Mayfair is also one of its most famous, and the flagship restaurant for Richard Caring's Caprice group. And if you can grab one of the tables outside (weather permitting), it's one of THE places to be seen in town.

West London
3 Hereford Road, Westbourne Grove, London W2 4AB

For seasonal British food done brilliantly you can't go wrong with Hereford Road where the former head chef of St. John Bread and Wine, Tom Pemberton, is in charge of the kitchen.

Black Axe Mangal (F.K.A.B.A.M)
North London
156 Canonbury Road, London N1 2UP
Critic reviews - total score out of 10

Lee Tiernan's Black Axe Mangal (or F.K.A.B.A.M as it's now known) has made a small site on Highbury Corner into one of the best restaurants in London. With metal and rock music blaring out on the speakers, it's certainly unlike much else in town. It's described as 'an unauthentic, bastardised take of Turkish Mangal and Ocakbasi, with global influences.' It has a set menu that changes regularly while still featuring some of the classics like their squid ink bread.

Goodman, the people behind the incredibly successful Burger and Lobster opened this restaurant which is focused purely around steak and king crab. Expect communal tables, sides, a big wine list and a limited spirit list too.

This Islington pub/restaurant has a strong emphasis on smoking and BBQ. Alongside the food expect plenty of rotating beers and the outside garden is a surprise oasis just off a busy Islington road.

The Draper's Arms
North London
44 Barnsbury St, Islington, London N1 1ER

This Islington pub is tucked down a quiet side street and remains one of the prettiest pubs in the borough. Run by Nick Gibson, the menu is a modern take on British pub grub. Grab a table in the garden if the weather's behaving itself.

16 Playground Gardens, London E2 7FA
Critic reviews - total score 9 out of 10

This is the original Rochelle Canteen, from chef Margot Henderson and business partner Melanie Arnold, and has been held up by almost every chef in London as one of the best places to eat at in town. Henderson serves up classic, seasonal cooking. It's a little on the hard side to find - but well worth it.

stjohnbread
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
94-96 Commercial St, London E1 6LZ

The Shoreditch outpost of the St John empire is almost like a finishing school for London chefs. This restaurant is the beating heart of seasonal British cooking in London and has spread that influence all over the UK. A cracking place for a weekend breakfast too.

Michelin star 1 Michelin star

James Lowe's restaurant at the Tea Building in Shoreditch proved that a restaurant in Shoreditch could gain a Michelin star. This all-day restaurant showcases his food with a regularly changing menu. Look out for special guests popping in from time to time. And they serve a damn fine coffee throughout the day.

cloveclub2

Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10
Michelin star 2 Michelin stars

One of the best restaurants in town and one of the few to make it into the World's 50 Best list, The Clove Club is now a London institution, on the must-try lists of all good gastro tourists. Head into the main restaurant for a regularly changing set menu which is at the heart of things here - or to the bar for cocktails and nibbles.

Hawksmoor Spitalfields
The City
157 Commercial Street, London E1 6BJ
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

The original Hawksmoor, and for many the best. Known as the group that transformed steaks in British restaurants forever for the better, this is a perfect place to come to for a meat-fest. And expect some cracking cocktails too - head to the bar downstairs for those and extra snacks not on the main menu.

Temper Soho
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
25 Broadwick St, Soho, London W1F
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

This is the first of the Temper restaurants, taking over a huge basement spot in Soho. The room is dominated by a central kitchen where all the smoking happens. From that you can expect tacos, meat piled onto freshly baked flatbread and a lot of mezcal.

blacklocksohonew
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
24 Great Windmill St, Soho, London W1D 7LG
Critic reviews - total score 6.5 out of 10

Blacklock's main speciality is chops - beef, pork and lamb and all at pretty good value. You'll want to go all-in with the chops dripping onto flatbread, but keep an eye out for some great steaks on the specials board. With very affordable cocktails too, a good time is guaranteed.

emberyardnew
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
60-61 Berwick Street, London W1F 8SU
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

This restaurant comes from the people behind Salt Yard and takes its inspiration from the rural Basque and Italian methods of smoking and grilling over charcoal. The menu is almost entirely cooked on a custom built charcoal fired grill.

Quo Vadis
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
26-29 Dean Street, London, W1D 3LL
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

Quo Vadis has Jeremy Lee in the kitchen and he's been cooking up a wonderfully British menu. Alas, the restaurant isn't quite what it used to be - with over two-thirds of the original space now given up to Barrafina. But the food is still great and if you're a member, there's an excellent upstairs restaurant too.

Rules
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
35 Maiden Lane, Covent Garden, London WC2E 7LB
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

One of London's oldest restaurants, there has been a Rules serving food in and around this part of Covent Garden since 1798. Here is where you come if you're after history and classic British dishes, served well. The upstairs cocktail bar is legendary.

ivynew
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
The Ivy, 1-5 West Street, London WC2H 9NQ
Critic reviews - total score 9.5 out of 10

One of London's great, classic restaurants, the Ivy had a major revamp not too long ago. The changes brought in a new central bar area with plenty of counter dining spaces. The menu has a mix of classic Ivy dishes like the Shepherd's Pie and more contemporary fare.
