The Black Swan at Oldstead claims top spot in Tripadvisor awards

The Black Swan at Oldstead has been named the number one restaurant in the UK, according to Tripadvisor’s 2020 Travellers’ Choice.

The only other UK restaurant to make the world top 10 in the same category was Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant The Fat Duck in Bray (ranked #10).

The awards celebrate travellers’ favourite hotels, restaurants and airlines around the world, based on the quality and quantity of the millions of reviews, opinions and ratings collected on Tripadvisor in 2019, prior to the pandemic.

James Kay, a Tripadvisor spokesperson, said: “This has been an incredibly tough year for the UK’s hospitality industry, but with doors opening again to hotels and restaurants across the country, now is the right time to celebrate those businesses that have delivered consistently outstanding service and quality over the last year.

“With so many winning properties coming from the UK this year, it is testament to the high standards of hospitality we enjoy domestically, and that should give Brits the confidence to venture out and support the industry’s vital recovery.”
