The UK officially has a new best restaurant — and you can eat there from £18

The Clove Club

Shoreditch-based The Clove Club has officially been crowned the UK’s best restaurant.

The Michelin-starred London restaurant came in 26th in the World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards, held in Melbourne on Wednesday, making it the highest-ranked restaurant in the UK.

It knocked The Ledbury off the UK top spot, which slipped from 14 to 27. Dinner by Heston was the only other UK restaurant to make the top 50, coming in at number 36.

The Clove Club offers a British Cuisine themed five-course tasting menu and an extended nine-course menu, as well as an a la carte offering. Menus change daily and are adjusted according to the season.

The five-course menu, which is available Monday to Thursday, will set you back £75 per person, while the nine-courser, available every night from Monday to Saturday, costs £110 a head. Wine pairing is available from £75.

However, a sample a la carte menu offers mains – like Pot Roast Cauliflower, Cinnamon, Bay Leaf & Toasted Bread Sauce – starting from £18, making a meal at The Clove Club more affordable.

The Clove Club started as a supper club from chef and owner Isaac McHale and partners Daniel Willis and Johnny Smith. Due to popular demand, a crowdfunding campaign helped it transition to a permanent restaurant.
