Waitrose & Partners Good Food Guide for 2019 released

Nathan Outlaw once again takes the top spot in The Good Food Guide by Waitrose & Partners. (Cough cough Mr Foodie our review needs to be written!)

Not only has Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Cornwall kept the top spot for the second year,  Chef Nathan Outlaw has achieved a perfect cooking score of ten for the third year in a row.

Restaurant Nathan Outlaw Michelin Star

The Port Isaac seafood restaurant has been crowned number one thanks to Nathan’s ‘confident cooking’ and ‘knack for deploying first-rate seafood to its ultimate advantage’. The restaurant is noted for having ‘a refreshing lack of pomp’ with a tasting menu that is ‘ingenious in its simplicity, yet continues to surprise’.

Waitrose & Partners Good Food Guide Editor, Elizabeth Carter noted, ‘This is the perfect Good Food Guide restaurant, embodying everything we champion. Expect cooking that is consistently of the highest quality combining the freshest ingredients, from shellfish and fish from sea and estuary to locally grown fruits and vegetables. There’s a brilliant wine list and the excellent service is devoted to diner enjoyment with no formality. It is with great delight that Restaurant Nathan Outlaw has been awarded a perfect 10 for the third year running, and retains the number one spot in our top 50’.

Nathan Outlaw comments on being crowned the GFG’s No.1 restaurant yet again, saying; ‘Learning that we had been placed in the top spot last year and retained a cooking score of 10/10 from the previous year was amazing, but this is just mind-blowing. My aim has always been to offer customers food cooked simply but with subtle layers of flavour and to make a visit to Restaurant Nathan Outlaw an experience to remember, for not only the food but also for the professional and welcoming hospitality our Front of House team provide. I am grateful to each one of my fantastic team for their commitment and hard work. Restaurant Nathan Outlaw embodies everything I’d want in a restaurant as a customer, and it seems that other people like it that way too!’

Alongside Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, Cumbria’s L’Enclume retains its score. (Read about our visit here)

The guide comments that ‘L’Enclume delivers a complete package, with unobtrusive but attentive service that underscores the impressive food and drink’, noting that chef Simon Rogan ‘has achieved something of a miracle. His farm-to-table operation has influenced chefs right across the country; it’s beyond dispute that British food owes him a lot’.
