Come anytime from 15th to 19th June at Regent’s Park to discover the Taste of London, a foodie wonderland offering five days of eating, drinking, entertainment and summer fun.


There are over 200 mouth-watering signature dishes from more than 40 of London’s best restaurants at this gastronomic celebration, including Duck & Waffle, Club Gascon, Roka, The Cinnamon Club, Sea Containers and many more, to help create your perfect tasting menu. With all that choice, you may not know where to start. To help you decide which dishes to try during your visit, have a look at Taste of London’s restaurant guide.


The world-class chefs appearing at Taste of London will be revealing their best-kept secrets during the many live demonstrations and masterclasses that you can take part in. Indulge in a range of complimentary activities, to include champagne and food pairings; wine, whiskey and craft beer tastings; or go shopping in Taste of London’s boutique food markets where more than 200 food and drink purveyors, artisan producers and manufacturers offer exclusive and unique products for your enjoyment.


For the first time, Great British Chefs – the UK’s fastest growing food website – are hosting their very own pop-up restaurant – Taste of Britain – which offers fantastic seasonal dishes from London and beyond.

Yesterday, during the opening night (15th June), the winners of The Evening Standard London Restaurant Awards, in association with Taste of London, were announced; six awards that shine a spotlight on London’s restaurant scene: the award for ‘Best restaurateur’ was won by Robin and Sarah Gill, who run The Dairy and The Manor in Clapham, and Paradise Garage in Bethnam Green; ‘Best restaurant’ award went to The Woodford, close to the Essex border, led by 25 year-old chef Ben Murphy; ‘Best Breakfast’ to Parlour, in Kenstal Rise; ‘Worth the Queue’ to London Bridge pasta restaurant Padella; ‘Good Drinking’ to one of the last bastions of ‘old Soho’, Andrew Edmunds; and ‘Best New Restaurant’ to Sri Lankan Hoppers. Congratulations to them all!


The judging panel comprised Awards Director and restaurant writer Joe Warwick, Evening Standard restaurant critics Fay Maschler and Grace Dent, respected London chef Rowley Leigh and Instagram star Clerkenwell Boy.

Taste of London has an afternoon and an evening session, each lasting 4 – 5 hours (depending on the day), giving you time to enjoy your pick of restaurant dishes, browse the artisan stalls and enjoy some of the many attractions. Tickets are sold for each session and are only valid for the time and date indicated on the ticket.
