10 of the best restaurants in London that also have a cracking wine list

Wine List Confidential (WLC) is a platform that ranks restaurants in London based on the strength of their wine lists alone. While the food offer at many of our selections are also first rate, it’s not what we judge our restaurants on.

So, when we come across a list of the best restaurants in London that have been chosen specifically for their food menu, such as OpenTable, it’s easy to see where

In its Top 100 Restaurants of 2018, reservation booking site Open Table lists the restaurants deemed the very best in the UK, based on hundreds of reviews by real customers.

This year’s top 100 was determined by analysing more than 851,000 reviews from more than 7,200 restaurants across the UK, submitted by verified diners.

Here, we have cross referenced Open Table’s Top 100 to see which of the most popular restaurants among users in London also earned themselves a spot in our Wine List Confidential rankings, due to the quality of their wine list, thus representing a marriage made in food and drink heaven.

Ranked here by the quality of their wine lists, all of these restaurants were considered to be among the very best, not just in London, but the UK. Not only that, but their presence in our Wine List Confidential database also means that diners can rely on their wine lists for a top drop.

Click through to see which restaurants scored highly, and for our review of their wine lists…
