See which Berkshire restaurants made it into the Sunday Times Top 100

Four of Berkshire’s restaurants have made it into the the Sunday Times Top 100 list.

The list, compiled by The Sunday Times in association with Harden’s – now in its sixth annual edition, is based on 63,000 reviews from almost 7,000 diners.

The diners rate each restaurant on food, service and ambience.

13 entries on the list are from the South East, making it the region with the most restaurants in the list outside of London.

The four entries in Berkshire are:

  • The Fat Duck and Waterside Inn in Bray, which are both the second and third most expensive restaurants on the list.
  • André Garrett At Cliveden, Cliveden House in Taplow, and L’Ortolan in Shinfield also represent the county.

L’Ortolan jumped up 26 places from last year’s list to number 20 making it the second highest ranking restaurant in Berkshire.

Head chef at L’Ortolan, Tom Clarke recently retained the Michelin star for the restaurant and gained 3 AA rosettes.

He has also been shortlisted for Chef of the Year in the Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Life Food and Drink Awards taking place on Thursday, November 19 at Stoke Park.

On hearing of the restaurant’s success, Tom said: “We were all over the moon to wake up to such amazing news on Sunday morning.

“Once again the team really showed what can be achieved with hard work and dedication.”

“We have had an enormous amount of support this year from diners, old and new, and we’re grateful to guests for taking time to review us on Harden’s.”

Editor of The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants, Karen Robinson, said: “The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants combines the opinions of thousands of diners to produce a definitive list.

“Basing it on the ratings of everyday restaurant-goers, who are paying their own money, means it is an honest reflection of the nation’s tastes, so chefs and restaurants should be truly proud to make the list.”
