Moor Hall crowned UK number 1 restaurant

The Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards 2019 were held on Monday 10th June and we are absolutely delighted to announce that Moor Hall was ranked #1 restaurant in the UK!

The Awards are the result of the votes of more than 150 industry experts, spread across all regions of the UK, comprising top chefs, restaurateurs, food writers, critics and other food experts and gastronomes, so it is an incredible achievement to make the top 100 ranking, let alone top 10.

Chef patron Mark Birchall said “We are absolutely thrilled to be number 1 in this year’s National Restaurant Awards, it’s such a huge achievement, and really shows the hard work and commitment the whole team have put in and we are delighted to continue to fly the flag for the North.  We have had an amazing 2 years since our opening and we are determined to keep moving, the hard work continues!”

Stefan Chomka, the editor of Restaurant Magazine said “Mark is an incredibly talented chef who has a clear ambition to not just create one of the best restaurants in the UK but in the world. Moor Hall is an almost immaculate experience.

Mark’s food is clever and inventive but also delicious, the service is exceptional and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. It’s an outstanding restaurant that deserves its title as the best in the UK.”
