SquareMeal has revealed their list of the best restaurants as voted for by critics and diners. 

In the capital, Mayfair restaurant BiBi was named the best in London.

Chef Patron Chet Sharma who has a PhD in physics and worked at L’Enclume,  Moor Hall and The Ledbury only opened BiBi last year. 

BiBi, which means ‘the lady of the house’ is a contemporary Indian restaurant serving a range of chaat and grills.

Sharma’s debut solo venture was described as 'a confident addition to the Mayfair dining scene'. 

Chef Patron Chet Sharma said: "Winning this award is a huge achievement for us at BiBi and made all the more special as we are still so early on in our journey.

"It drives us to work harder, to keep creating, innovating and looking after our guests the best we can. Thank you to SquareMeal and to our incredible team at BiBi."

Somerset restaurant Osip was named the UK’s best restaurant. 

Squaremeal said 'this tiny farm-to-table gem' is located in the village of Bruton and owned by ex-head chef of London favourites Portland and Clipstone, Merlin Labron-Johnson. The 22-cover restaurant is housed in a stone building which used to be the village ironmonger.

SquareMeal’s Head of Content Caroline Hendry said: “A huge congratulations to all 200 restaurants, and in particular to our winners Osip and BiBi, who impressed us not only with their menus but with their work ethic and positive contribution to the hospitality industry “

“While some institutions have remained in the Top 100s, many newcomers have also risen up the ranks since we last ran the awards.

"A wonderful accolade for each new restaurant that has opened within such a trying couple of years for hospitality.”
