Chefs and Masterchef

If you’re inspired by restaurant chefs, they’ve certainly got plenty of these to check out. Their MasterChef posts were some of their most popular features in early 2021. Managing Editor Rosie Conroy felt the final was one of the best in recent years saying: “Tom, with his oyster trio, rib-eye steak with beetroot and watercress purée, and dainty lemon tart, was a thoroughly deserving winner. But he was pushed all the way to the line by Mike Tomkins, 27, and Alexina Anatole, 30.” Come and meet these chefs at this year’s Foodies Festivals.

Search restaurants

With over 15,000 listings across the UK, SquareMeal is the ultimate online guide.  Find inspiration wherever you are in the country, read expert reviews and enjoy easy booking of restaurants, pubs and even bars.  And, when you’re done, leave your own review, too, and start collecting your own lists of personal recommendations or wish list of places to go.  PLUS earn rewards points for every restaurant you book, or every time you pay a bill in participating restaurants.

Searches can be filtered by area, SquareMeal rating, price, cuisine, ambience and a host of other classifications (such as date nights, late nights and special occasions). The SquareMeal awards (Gold, Silver, Bronze) act as a rating system that guides users to the best restaurants, on the basis of food, ambience, service and value.    

SquareMeal also curates lists of best restaurants by area, cuisine and occasion as well as popular lists like cheap eats, brunch and alfresco. Using a combination of its surveys and its team of critics, SquareMeal additionally publishes popular industry lists such as the UK Top 100, its London Top 100 and Best New Restaurants.
