The Best British Restaurants
We here at View are very proud of our fair isle, not least for the fantastic food we can enjoy at the best British restaurants. British food doesn't have the best reputation around the world but those preconceptions are a little behind the times. We have some of the best chefs working with the some of the best produce, showcasing just why our reputation is growing. And growing fast.
Corrigan's Mayfair
28 Upper Grosvenor Street, Mayfair, London, W1K 7EH
The setting is quintessentially British but the food is a brilliantly modern take on classic British food, all overseen by the man himself, Richard Corrigan. If the cutlet and shoulder of lamb is on, it's a must.

St John
26 St John Street, Smithfield, London, EC1M 4AY
Fergus Henderson's brilliant Michelin starred venue eschews all pomp and ceremony to bring some seriously good plates of food to diners unafraid of a bit of offal. This place is somewhere that was at the forefront of Britain's culinary renaissance, and we think it's still every bit as good as it always was.

Alberts Table
49B South End, Croydon, London, CR0 1BF
This excellent little nose-to-tail friendly place in Croydon makes you want to move to south of the river. Gorgeous - and very British - food that consistently impresses, Albert sure knows how to serve up the very best of Blighty.

The Northall
Corinthia Hotel London, 10a Northumberland Avenue, Whitehall, London, WC2N 5AE
Overshadowed somewhat by its big brother at The Corinthia, Massimo, The Northall is certainly worth looking into. It's got the same grandeur as Massimo but the food is resolutely British, with everything from short horn cattle steaks from the Lake District to seafood from the Cornish coast. And pretty much anything in between.

1901 Restaurant
Andaz Hotel, 40 Liverpool Street, The City, London, EC2M 7QN
Hotel restaurants are notoriously hit and miss but this one at the Andaz is thankfully the former. Simple dishes allow individual ingredients to showcase just how well-sourced they are, all from a gorgeous setting that harks back to the old days. But not too far - this place was once Bedlam: the lunatic asylum.

The Gilbert Scott
St Pancras Renaissance London Hotel, Euston Road, King's Cross, London, NW1 2AR
Marcus Wareing needed to do something special to make this restaurant worthy of its place within the magnificent St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, and thankfully the famous chef has. Expect very fine food (with a nod to culinary icons of yesteryear), served from a dining room that really looks the very grand part.

Savoy Grill
Savoy Hotel, Strand, London, WC2R 0BP
Now under the stewardship of Mr Ramsay, the Savoy Grill is steeped in tradition, with the likes of Churchill, Monroe and Thatcher just some of its regular luminaries. An obscenely expensive lick of paint makes it somewhere that looks suitably impressive, but it's the surprisingly hearty food that makes it worth trying.

Laughing Gravy
154 Blackfriars Road, Southwark, London, SE1 8EN
This excellent little restaurant in Southwark is a bit of a bugger to get to but it really is worth the walk. Really good food (especially the Sunday lunch) combines with one of the most relaxing atmospheres you're likely to find in London for a restaurant that definitely deserves a better location... one closer to a tube, ideally.

The National Dining Rooms
The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London, WC2N 5DN
One of Peyton and Byrne's stable of quality British restaurants, this fine venue at the National Gallery could easily be missed. Which would be a shame, as the food here really is pretty darn good, and the views even better - right out onto Trafalgar Square.

Paternoster Chop House
Warwick Court, Paternoster Square, St Pauls, London, EC4M 7DX
This excellent venue from D&D not only has some great views of St Paul's Cathedral, but also an excellent selection of superbly-sourced British produce put together on a very readable, very well handled menu. A cracking British restaurant.
