Off the TV and into the kitchen

If you're ever stuck for somewhere to eat in Britain, help is at hand. These restaurants are run by some of our top celebrity chefs, so you're guaranteed a great meal. And you never know who might be working in the kitchen that night!

The Fat Duck Restaurant, Bray

Heston Blumenthal’s 3 Michelin-starred Fat Duck was named Best Restaurant in the World and it’s not hard to see why. Don’t miss the 17-course tasting menu and the wine list with wines from £30 to over £5,000. Blumenthal has a reputation for a scientific approach to cooking that results in flamboyant, theatrical dishes. Try his ‘sound of the sea’ which features seafood and edible seaweed on a bed of sand-like tapioca accompanied by an ipod playing seaside sounds.

Fifteen, London and Watergate Bay, Cornwall

You can find Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurants in London and Watergate Bay in Cornwall. Expect Jamie’s trademark simple, delicious food in a trendy setting, and remember that the money from the bill goes towards training the Fifteen trainee chefs from underprivileged backgrounds.

Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, Oxfordshire

Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir is the only country house hotel in the UK which has achieved 2 Michelin stars for a total of 22 years. You’ll find a sumptuous mix of English country charm and the best continental cooking around. Enjoy the exquisite, modern French menu while taking in the beautiful 2-acre gardens.

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, London

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay earned the eponymous chef 3 Michelin Stars and is regarded as one of the best restaurants in London. It’s his flagship restaurant, so expect great service, impeccable food and a fabulous wine list.

St John, London

Chef Fergus Henderson owns this London restaurant with restaurateur Trevor Gulliver. Just round the corner from London’s Smithfield market, St John serves great British food made from the finest British produce with an emphasis on traditional meat dishes. If you’re dining in a group try the feasting menu which includes a whole roast suckling pig.

The Seafood Restaurant, Padstow, Cornwall

Just across from Padstow harbour in Cornwall , you’ll find Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant . From the restaurant you can see where the lobster boats and trawlers tie up and much of the fish comes, literally, straight off the boats and in the kitchen door. You can’t get much fresher than that.

Rhodes 24, London

Take a trip to the 24th floor of the City of London’s tallest building, Tower 42, where Gary Rhodes’ 24 serves traditional British food with an innovative twist. Enjoy some of the best views of London while dining on roasted rabbit, monkfish and some great British cheeses.

The River Café, London

The River Cafe in West London was opened by chefs Ruth Rogers and the late Rose Gray. Their cult restaurant was one of the first to bring Italian flavours to London, cooked in a simple, clean style. Signature dishes include chargrilled squid with chilli and rocket and whole pigeon stuffed with thyme and sage. Still phenomenally popular, eating here is a real treat.
