Toptable have released the Diners’ Choice Awards for the Top 50 Best Restaurants for Service in the UK – the list includes just two restaurants from Yorkshire, with Van Zeller’s making the list for Harrogate.

They are generated from approximately 350,000 reviews collected from verified toptable diners between September 2012 and August 2013.



All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the highest average rating in the service category.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the Top 50 Best Restaurants for Service in the UK according to toptable diners.
