TripAdvisor unveils UK’s best fine dining restaurants

Travel site TripAdvisor has unveiled its 2018 Travellers’ Choice Restaurant Award winners based on customer ratings recorded on its site, with no restaurants from London making the UK top 10.

TripAdvisor compiles the list for the Travellers’ Choice Restaurant Awards by using an algorithm that studies the quality and quantity of reviews left on the site over a 12-month period.

For the first time this year, the awards included an everyday dining category, which saw Scottish comfort food hotspot Gourmet Mash Bar in Edinburgh take the crown.

The travel site has released the results for different countries, as well as the overall world result. One UK restaurant made it into the top 10 in the world, and three made it in the top 25. The top spot went to Michelin-starred Au Crocodile in Strasbourg which is head up by chef Franck Pelux.

Hayley Coleman, a TripAdvisor spokesperson, said: “Rather than judging panel, these awards are determined by the millions of reviews posted over 12 months from diners who have visited the restaurants. The UK continues to cement itself as one of the biggest players in the global gastronomy scene.
