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.
