The London Restaurant Festival

The London Restaurant Festival takes place from the 1st-31st of October in the capital’s best restaurants across the city.

The Festival aims is to deliver a wide range of memorable and creative events. Curated by the London Restaurant Festival team, these events aim to show you the highlights and diversity of the capital’s thriving restaurant scene. The festival is the perfect excuse to try out some of London’s world-class restaurants and a good reason to celebrate its excitingly eclectic food scene, with a city-wide homage to great food in London.

Many of the finest restaurants take part, including a lunch held by Michel Roux at The Landau, alongside wine tasting and a VIP tour of Fortnum & Mason’s food hall. More than 250 restaurants have created special fixed-priced taster menus for customers to sample all of their dishes. Alongside the main festivities, there is also a great selection of other food-focused activities, including wine tasting, a gourmet road trip across the capital and culinary-centred film screenings.
