Thousands of readers voted for the SquareMeal Top 100 Restaurants of 2019 and the results are now in and here follows the Top 10:

1. Restaurant Moor Hall Aughton, Lancashire
You’d never guess when you arrive at 16th-century Moor Hall that it conceals an ultra-contemporary restaurant featuring a huge open kitchen. Chef Mark Birchall uses produce from the five-acre estate to reinvent seasonal British cooking.

2. The Waterside Inn Maidenhead, Berkshire
The UK’s longest-serving three Michelin-starred restaurant is special-occasion dining par excellence, from the dreamy location on the banks of the River Thames to the cooking of chef Alain Roux, which flies the flag for French gastronomy.

3. L'Enclume Grange-Over-Sands, Cumbria (pictured)
Simon Rogan’s two-Michelin-starred restaurant with rooms is a destination in every sense. Make the journey to the southern tip of Cumbria and a thrilling tasting menu of Rogan’s farmed and foraged ingredients awaits.

4. Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons Great Milton, Oxfordshire
Raymond Blanc’s legendary country-house hotel blends a quintessentially English manor setting with French-inspired cooking that puts lightness and freshness centre stage. The setting is especially magical in summer.

5. Casamia Bristol
A former winner of SquareMeal’s UK Restaurant of the Year, Peter Sanchez-Iglesias’s Casamia has won national attention for Bristol’s burgeoning restaurant scene. Chefs emerge from the semi-open kitchen to serve an exciting tasting menu.

6. The Sportsman Seasalter, Kent
Stephen Harris’ ‘grotty pub’ (his words) have made an unlikely site of pilgrimage for a windswept corner of the Kent marshes. The main attraction tasting menu needs booking in advance – but this isn’t somewhere you’d just drop in.

7. The Fat Duck Maidenhead, Berkshire
“Words can’t describe how incredibly entertaining a trip to The Fat Duck is” – so writes a fan who was “made to feel like royalty” at Heston Blumenthal’s three-Michelin-starred wonderland. A must-do “experience of a lifetime”.

8. Restaurant Nathan Outlaw Port Isaac, Cornwall
With stunning views all the way up the north Cornish coast, it’s only fitting that the county’s best restaurant should specialise in spanking fresh seafood fished straight out of the surrounding sea, from humble mackerel to luxury turbot.

9. The Hand and Flowers Marlow, Buckinghamshire
The first (and so far only) gastropub ever to win two Michelin stars, Tom Kerridge’s Hand and Flowers is somewhere that not only lives up to the hype but the anticipation of having to book a table a year in advance.

10. Fordwich Arms Fordwich, Kent
This rising star of the UK restaurant scene combines the best bits of a country pub – including a riverside terrace – with food and wine curated by a chef and sommelier who used to work at London’s cutting-edge Clove Club.
