Restaurant Sat Bains crowned fourth best-rated restaurant in the world

Sat and Amanda Bains have announced that their Nottingham restaurant has been named fourth in world and the UK’s number one in the 2018 Travellers’ Choice Restaurants Awards from TripAdvisor.

It’s the first time Restaurant Sat Bains has topped the UK rankings in the Travellers’ Choice Awards for restaurants, having placed sixth in 2014 and second in 2015.

Sat and Amanda Bains commented, 'We have always believed in our team and our location, and we feel both the kitchen brigade and front of house team we have currently are the strongest we have ever had.

'It's very flattering to receive such high praise from our guests, and we are immensely proud to fly the flag, not just for our home city of Nottingham and the Midlands, but the UK too.

'To be among restaurants of such high calibre in the world ranking is extremely humbling. It's an honour to be recognised and it will inspire us to keep pushing to deliver the ultimate in gastronomy. There will certainly be extra celebrations at our Christmas party this month!'

The restaurant, which offers a seven or ten-course tasting menu, was awarded a Michelin star in 2003, becoming the first restaurant in Nottingham to do so, and was promoted to two stars nine years later, in 2012.

The restaurant also holds five AA rosettes and a score of nine out of 10 in the Waitrose Good Food Guide.

Dishes on the menu include baked potato smoked over embers with caviar, chicken royale with pain d'epices and popcorn and braised oxtail with truffle and beetroot.
