The UK’s best restaurants in 2018, and their wine lists

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants were revealed on Monday night, with just four UK venues — all in London — making it into the list.

Hosted at Euskalduna Conference Centre and Concert Hall in Bilbao, 1,000 guests descended upon the palace to find out the results from 50 to one – rankings from 100 to 51 were revealed earlier in June.

New entries included London’s Lyle’s at 38, headed up by James Lowe, Solvenia’s Hiša Franko led by Chef’s Table star Ana Ros at 48, and Istanbul’s Mikla at 44. Barcelona’s Disfrutar was the highest début at 18.

Just four UK restaurants made it into the list this year, all of which are in London, all of which have wine lists noteworthy for everything from their exotic offerings to their powerful storytelling.

We’ve raided the archives of our Wine List Confidential guide to profile the top UK restaurants.

From Notting Hill to Hoxton, these are the most cutting edge restaurants in London right now.
