A restaurant in Wales has been named best in the UK at a prestigious annual awards ceremony.

Since its inception in 2007, the National Restaurant Awards have never ranked a restaurant outside of England first in the top 100 of the year.

The ceremony, held at London’s Hurlingham Club on Monday (June 13), was dominated by the capital’s 60-something top-century dining scene.

The awards celebrate the brilliance and vibrancy of the industry and reward the best chefs, staff and restaurants the country has to offer.

The winner – Ynyshir in Machylleth, Powys, adds the listing to its two Michelin stars, five AA Rosettes and Wales’ top spot in Harden’s Guide.

Chef and owner Gareth Ward took over Ynyshir in 2013

It was described by the judges as “combining a pounding soundtrack with a series of tiny plates of hard-hitting Japanese-influenced cuisine cooked over fire” and praised for “a dining experience like no other”.

Originally from County Durham, chef and owner Gareth Ward has made Ynyshir a true foodie destination since taking over in 2013.

Stefan Chomka, editor of Restaurant by BigHospitality, described Gareth’s accomplishments as “remarkable”.

He said: “Taking over a restaurant in a traditional country house hotel and putting such a personal and quirky stamp on it was a bold, bold move – a real statement of intent – but one that has really paid off.

“Ynyshir is undoubtedly one of the most unique and exciting places to eat in the UK, possibly the world, right now and is a very worthy winner of this year’s awards.”

Meanwhile, the two-Michelin-star Moor Hall in Aughton, near Ormskirk, Lancashire, has been voted Best Restaurant in England.

It had earned the coveted first spot in the Top 100 list for the past two years, but was relegated to second place this year.
