The team at Windermere’s Holbeck Ghyll has learned that they had been included in the top 100 restaurants in the UK. The 12th annual National Restaurant Awards held at London’s Hurlingham Club.

General Manager, Elia Shreiber, discovered that the Lake District restaurant had been listed at No.98 in the influential magazine’s list of top 100 UK eateries for 2019.

Each year the National Restaurant Awards celebrate the brilliance and vibrancy of the UK’s eating out scene, from Michelin-starred dining rooms with tasting menus to casual neighbourhood bistros and steakhouses and reward the very best chefs, front of house staff and restaurants the country has to offer.

The awards are a celebration of places in the UK that make eating out a true pleasure. The list of the 100 best restaurants in the UK is voted for by 200 industry experts from across the UK, including chefs, restaurateurs, critics and food writers. The UK is split into 11 regions, with judges voting for the top seven restaurants they have dined at in the last 12 months, in order of preference. This year, 46 of the top 100 restaurants are located outside London.


Holbeck Ghyll’s General Manager, Elia Shreiber commented on the win: ‘’The team at Holbeck Ghyll are over the moon to feature alongside the UK’s top restaurants; including Moor Hall, Raby Hunt, Mana, and Roganic. Being listed at No.98 is huge for us, especially as it massively recognises the efforts of everyone at Holbeck Ghyll. We are immensely dedicated, and this is a huge pat on the back for what we are striving to achieve. Food is one of our great passions, combine that with stunning surroundings and some of the best produce on offer anywhere in the country and you really can’t go far wrong…’’
