UK restaurant named world's best in Tripadvisor's 2021 awards

A Lake District restaurant has today been named the best fine dining restaurant in the world as Tripadvisor announces the winners of its 2021 Travellers’ Choice ‘Best of the Best’ Restaurants awards.

And you don’t need to travel too far to try out many of the winners, including The Old Stamp House Restaurant, which won top spot in two categories worldwide; fine dining and date night.

At the heart of the Lake District village of Ambleside, housed in the former office of William Wordsworth, this intimate restaurant boasting a Michelin Star celebrates the food and cultural heritage of Cumbria.

Dishes include black pudding ‘bon bons’ and crab from the west coast of Cumbria.

London’s Scarlett Green was another UK eatery that took home a worldwide, as number one in the brunch category.

Craft Birmingham is another that cleaned up for 2021, offering British food in unique ‘pods’ to allow for social distancing.

‘It’s no secret that the restaurant industry has taken a hit over the past year or so, but the good news is that would-be diners all over the world are hungrier than ever to dine out again,’ said Martin Verdon-Roe, general manager of Hospitality Solutions at Tripadvisor.

‘There is so much good out there to explore this summer and beyond and no matter what you’re craving, the Best of the Best Restaurants Awards is on hand to serve as a menu of options to satisfy your appetite.’
