This handy guide to the UK's top restaurants, now in its 12th edition, is famous for "telling it how it is" . People-power underpins its authoritative reviews and ratings, which are based on the UK's most comprehensive annual survey of the restaurant-going public (in which many thousands take part). A user-friendly format is key. Reviews are liberally scattered with quotes from "real" people, and symbols represent how the cooking and ambience have been rated. There are extensive maps and an alphabetical index. This edition also includes select accommodation information, again based on survey results.
