You don’t have to travel far to experience world class cuisine.

The 85 best restaurants in the world have been crowned, and a very impressive nine London eateries made the list.

Elite Traveller’s Top Restaurants Readers’ Choice Awards is made up of recommendations from the publication’s ‘high net-worth readers,’ who were asked to name their most memorable dining experiences.

The list included nine of London’s fanciest establishments, many of which are Michelin-starred.

Brat, in Shoreditch, which is known for its Basque-style Turbot, made the list, as did Le Gavroche in Mayfair, which is set to close early next year.

Core by Clare Smyth and The Ledbury, both in Notting Hill, were also featured, as were Mayfair’s The Ritz Restaurant, Hide Above (now called Hide) and Pollen Street Social.

The River Cafe in Hammersmith and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, the celebrity chef’s three Michelin star restaurant in Chelsea, also got a mention.

Outside of London, there were a few more UK-based restaurants that took a spot on the hot list, such as The Samling, which belongs to a luxury hotel in Windermere in the Lake District.

Fat Duck (Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant) and The Waterside Inn, both in Bray, Hand also made the list, as did Flowers in Marlow (owned by Tom Kerridge) and Adam’s in Birmingham.

Scotland and Wales also had some contenders, with Ynyshir in Machynlleth and Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles in Perth making the list.
