This annual list reflects the combined opinions of more than 400,000 reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners at more than 4300 restaurants across the UK.

This year, The Chef’s Table based in Chester is the top ranked restaurant, beating stiff competition from top culinary hotspots in the capital. The Chef’s Table received its award at Restaurant Magazine’s National Restaurant Awards ceremony on Monday 29 June 2015.

The Top 10 Fit for Foodies honourees, in order are:

  1. The Chef’s Table, Chester

  9. The Ledbury, London
  10. Kurobuta Chelsea, London

Mike Xenakis, Managing Director, OpenTable International, commented: “OpenTable diners are passionate and discerning about their dining experiences. As such, this list is a fantastic guide to some of the best ‘foodie’ restaurants in the UK. Each one has impressed and delighted our diners with their creativity, skill and culinary prowess.”

The Top 50 Fit for Foodies restaurants are generated from more than 400,000 reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners in the past year. All restaurants with a minimum overall score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which ‘Fit for Foodies’ was selected as a special feature.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, show the complete Top 50 Fit for Foodies restaurants in the UK according to OpenTable diners.
