Launch of Britain's Finest Restaurants

Share Article

Britian's Finest restaurants serve the best ingredients, freshly prepared by some the country's most skilled and imaginative chefs. The surroundings are often luxurious but always comfortable. Service is of the highest order; in larger establishments that could well mean an army of waiters presenting your food with a flourish, but equally it could be the wife of the chef providing professional, knowledgeable and friendly advice in a small family run quality restaurant. A variety of styles are represented from cutting edge fine dining and more casual "modern European" cooking to some ethnic cuisines, but Britain's Finest focuses on quality rather than trying to be a catch all guide.
