SquareMeal, the independent restaurant guide, has published its annual list of the UK’s top 100 Restaurants, which this year features three Devon establishments, including Lympstone Manor.

SquareMeal’s list is special in that it is the only list of its kind to exclude restaurants in London, which gives the UK’s wider dining scene a chance to shine. The team behind the list has said that this year was one of the hardest, financially speaking, and have made sure to include more affordable restaurants than previous years. The list was created using a combination of reader votes and restaurant critics’ views and features everything from fine dining to gastropubs.

Lympstone Manor and two others were included on this year’s list, with Lympstone Manor being named 59 in the UK’s top 100. SquareMeal said: “The jewel in Michael Caines’ crown, Lympstone Manor in Devon comes with all the trimmings of fine dining that you’d expect, and earned itself a Michelin star just six months after opening.”
