Britain's best restaurant, according to readers of The Observer, is the charmingly old-fashioned Chez Bruce, on Wandsworth Common, London. It pipped Hibiscus, in Ludlow, Shropshire, and Anthony's, where Anthony James Flinn's cooking lures customers from as far away as New York to Leeds. Best-located restaurant for a meal is the Three Chimneys on the Isle of Skye, which looks out over Loch Dunvegan and the Atlantic. Local lobster, venison and Blackface lamb are among the specialities. Placed second was Oloroso, which boasts fabulous views over Edinburgh Castle from the roof terrace, a stylish bar and cool clientele. Third was McCoys at the Baltic, in Gateshead, where diners can watch the sun set over the Tyne. Best for kids is Crumpet, in London SW11, followed by Head over Heels in Chorlton, Manchester, and Pick More Daisies in Crouch End, London. Best for Cheap Eats is St John Bread & Wine in Spitalfields, London, followed by Wild Ginger in Harrogate and Pokeno Pies in Brighton The Observer 26/03/06 (Food Monthly supplement)
