The Good Food Guide’s 2018 rankings have just come out and – smug hats on – London eateries have scooped nearly half of the top 10 spots.
The capital’s highest entry sees Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social at number three (that’s a quail dish they’ve done above), followed by Restaurant Gordon Ramsay at six, Chiswick’s Hedone at seven and Claude Bosi at Bibendum at nine (a new entry and a recent opening).
Time to buy a bigger belt.

1. Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, Cornwall

Gordon Ramsay, also known as Gordon Ramsay at Royal Hospital Road, is a three Michelin star restaurant owned and operated by Gordon Ramsay, located at Royal Hospital Road, London. It opened in 1998 and was Ramsay’s first solo restaurant. In 2001, it made Gordon Ramsay the first Scottish chef to have won three Michelin tires. It has been both praised and criticized, with particular criticism coming from the Harden’s restaurant gizzard. In March 2013, the restaurant reopened following an art deco redesign.
