    Davies & Brook, Daffodil Mulligan and more win at the GQ Food & Drink awards

    As we emerge from several lockdowns blinking into the light, we're starting to see more (albeit scaled back) actual awards shows take place and the latest of these is the yearly GQ Food and Drink Awards. Presented at Nobu Portman Square by the person who's frankly the best at this, Claudia Winkleman, it saw Daniel Humm's Davies & Brook at Claridge's take the top

  • The World's 50 Best Restaurants awards returns for 2021

    The World's 50 Best Restaurants awards returns for 2021

    It skipped a year for 2020, for obvious reasons, but the World's 50 Best ceremony is making a comeback later this year. 

    Plans have been confirmed for the awards ceremony to take place on 5 October 2021 in Antwerp. The organisers have also said they're aiming for an in-person event, so fingers crossed for a lessening of Covid restrictions (and Covid, of course) by that

    The AA reveals new London rosettes for 2020/21 with Muse and The Ritz getting four each

    There may be a pandemic on, but there's still plenty of room for awards season. While Michelin is delayed until next year, The AA has announced this year's new rosettes (with a virtual ceremony, of course). 

    The rosettes run from one to five - with the latter being particularly rare. With that in mind, here's who got an award this year (just focusing on London and on the top

  • GQ's 2020 Food and Drink Awards name Sketch as best restaurant

    GQ's 2020 Food and Drink Awards name Sketch as best restaurant

    Normally this is the time of year that restaurant awards season kick off. But with the Michelin stars delayed until next year and physical ceremonies decidedly off the cards - not to mention a four-month gap when nothing was open - it's a little quieter than usual this year. 

    But that hasn't stopped GQ, who have just revealed their restaurant awards for 2020. Their choice as best restaurant of the year, The

  • London's pizza joints and cocktail bars win big on the world stage

    Bel-Air brings wholesome LA-fare to Farringdon with their second branch

    The news is bleak. We know that. So, frankly, we're going to take the wins where we can find them and over the past week or so London has done rather well on that front. We may be an international laughing stock over our response to Covid, but at least when it comes to pizzas and cocktails we're world-beating.

    Pizzas first. The 50 Top Pizza Europe 2020 list came out just before the weekend and London

  • Jancis Robinson wins big in the 2020 James Beard Awards

    Over in America, the 2020 James Beard Award have been announced and there were several British names up for contention.

    If you haven't heard of the awards, think of these as a stateside Oscars, if you like, of the food world. They started 30 years ago and since then have become a barometer of what's hot (and cool) in the culinary world, recognising chefs, restaurants and food writers alike.

    The Fortnum's food and drink awards for 2020 are revealed

    You aren't going to see many awards ceremonies this year, what with everything being closed and the whole social distancing thing. But that didn't deter Fortnum & Mason last night. Their awards are primarily about food writing, so this year they moved the ceremony online, presented by Claudia Winkleman as usual, and with a special guest appearance from Stephen Fry. 

    So here's who won an award last

  • There will be no World's 50 Best Restaurants awards this year


    As there are no actual restaurants open in many places across the world right now, the people behind the World's 50 Best Restaurants have made the fairly sensible decision to delay their next awards until 2021. After all, even if there are a few restaurants open somewhere, nobody can actually travel to get to them. 

    So, the main list is going to be furloughed for a year, assuming that's what the announcement that the "annual list will not be released

    Always one of the better food awards that happen at the tail end of the year, tonight was the turn of the Observer Food Monthly awards. 

    As ever, they're awards which try to spread the love around the whole country, with Bank Tavern in Bristol the best place for a Sunday Lunch, 288 Bar and Wok being a great restaurant for cheap eats and Danny Wallace, working for Gary Usher's

  • The AA's Restaurant Guide 2020 adds 27 new London restaurants

    The AA guide London restaurants 2020

    The new AA restaurant guide for 2020 is out and London is storming ahead of the rest of the country.

    London got 27 new entries in the book (there were 140 new entries in total). The guide contains over 2,000 restaurants currently awarded Rosettes for culinary excellence by the AA’s professional inspectors.

    New this year for London are the following restaurants:

    • The Rex Whistler Restaurant, SW1

  • The Michelin Guide 2020 is out and Sketch is the UK's new three star restaurant

    There are some constants in this life. And it's a sure thing that every year, come the day that the Michelin Guide reveals who has won, lost and retained a Michelin star, that there will be grumbling. Some will say the stars are no longer relevant, others that not enough have been awarded, others still that the stars have gone to the wrong chefs. But one thing's for sure - for something that's not apparently that important
