One meal any where in the UK

Recommended Posts

If you could go to any restaurant anywhere in the UK which one would you choose?

This is not a totally hypothetical question. I have to take someone, who is visiting the UK, out to eat. They are visiting various parts of the UK as part of the trip so the area does no matter.

The only proviso is that it has to be possible to get a table so the Fat Duck is off the list!

I guess it depends what that someone is particularly interested in. If it's ambiance, I'm sure there are many spectacular/lovely/cosy places scattered all over Britain. If it's cuisine, I doubt one can do much better than picking The Ledbury.

This is not a restaurant I know but it will make your heart soar - I hope! There is a tiny fish and chip shop in the village of Findhorn on the NE coast of Scotland where the required food is cooked in local highland beef dripping, the haddock is fresh as a daisy and the chips are always good. You take it outside and sit and gaze out over the Moray Firth, watch the dolphins if you are lucky, admire the snowy mountains, drink beer from the Black Isle and just savour our beautiful Island with all its diversity. A real treat that shows off our spectacular land as well as any expensive eatery.

That sounds wonderful Lindsey.

For me my favorites in London at any rate would be St. John (original location), J Sheekey, and the Guinea Grille.

Even better than all of the above, but open for weekday lunch only - Sweetings.
