Hosted by Restaurant magazine and taking place at London’s The Hurlingham Club, the award ceremony also saw three Michelin-starred restaurant Moor Hall in Lancashire named best restaurant in the UK.

Located in a converted whisky bonded warehouse in Leith, Edinburgh, The Kitchin has been awarded multiple accolades since its launch in 2006.

The duo have since gone on to open a further four restaurants encompassing The Castle Terrace, The Scran and Scallie, Southside Scran and The Bonnie Badger.

Offering modern British cuisine with a French influence, The Kitchin’s ethos ‘From Nature to Plate’ reflects the team’s commitment to sourcing the finest and freshest seasonal produce.

Tom said: “Michaela and I are thrilled to have won UK Restaurateur of the Year at the National Restaurant Awards last night, especially as we really respect the other guys who were shortlisted.

“It’s been a really busy last six months for us having opened both Southside Scran and The Bonnie Badger, so it’s a huge honour to be recognised in this way.

“A big well done to our whole team, it’s definitely a team effort and we will continue to push on and try and deliver the best food and hospitality experiences that we possibly can.”
