Restaurant booking app OpenTable has named London’s Restaurant Story as the best restaurant in the UK in its annual list based on reviews left by diners.

Restaurant Story, created by celebrated chef Tom Sellers in April 2013, received a Michelin star just five months after opening and was voted favourite by OpenTable users.

London restaurants dominated the list, with eight out of 10 restaurants based in the capital. Established favourites such as The Ledbury and The Grill at The Dorchester were featured in the top 10, alongside new ventures such as Pond Dalston.

British cuisine was prominent throughout the list, a third of the top 100 restaurants served British food, with seven of the top 10 also specialising in the fare.

Mike Xenakis, managing director of OpenTable, said: “The Top 100 list represents the best of UK dining. At OpenTable our aim is to enable diners to discover the perfect restaurant for every type of occasion and provide great dining experiences.

“The reviews left by diners on our site are an invaluable resource for those seeking culinary inspiration, and it is this expert feedback that we mine to compile the Top 100 list. We’re proud to celebrate with these restaurants, and give them and their head chefs the recognition they deserve.”

The Top 100 Best Restaurants 2014 list is generated from more than 340,000 reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between November 19th, 2013 and November 18th, 2014. All restaurants with a minimum number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration.

Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from each restaurants average reating in the ‘overall’ category along with that restaurant’s rating relative to others in the same metropolitan area and the average number of restaurants reviewed by diners who reviewed that restaurants.

OpenTable was established in the UK in 2004 and approximately 4,200 restaurants use OpenTable technology, equating to two times the number of bookable restaurants of any other online restaurant reservation site in London.
