Tommy Banks' Michelin-starred restaurant with rooms, The Black Swan, is number one in the UK in the Tripadvisor Fine Dining category.

It was also awarded 4th place in the world, accompanied by only two other UK restaurants in the list of 25, The Fat Duck and L’Enclume.

Tommy said: "We're thrilled to be named the best fine dining restaurant in the UK, and number four in the world. We work so hard to provide our customers with the best possible dining experience, and it's always such an honour to be recognised for it. We're now gearing up to re-open again on 12 August, and we really can't wait to welcome back our wonderful guests."

The results were based on a full year of Tripadvisor reviews, prior to any changes caused by the pandemic.

Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor said: “Winners of the 2020 Travelers’ Choice Awards should be proud of this distinguished recognition. Although it’s been a challenging year for travel and hospitality, we want to celebrate our partners' achievements. Award winners are beloved for their exceptional service and quality. Not only are these winners well deserving, they are also a great source of inspiration for travelers/diners as the world begins to venture out again.”

In 2017 The Black Swan was also named the world’s best rated restaurant, by the annual TripAdvisor Awards.
