10. Fat Duck, Bray, UK

Run by British celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal, The Fat Duck is a three Michelin-starred restaurant in the county of Berkshire.

Blumenthal says: “The whole experience is a Journey, centred around a nostalgic trip full of playful memories, filled with curiosity, discovery and adventure. This nostalgic trip is based on a collection of some of my favourite childhood holiday memories, taking place over the course of a day. The menu is your itinerary for the day, represented on the map you’ve just seen on the homepage.”

The Fat Duck was the UK’s highest entry in this list and the world’s top new entry. Britain is home to five of the world’s top 100 restaurants in total.
