Top 10 Restaurants of 2021

Sampled and rated by The Gourmet Boys

This was really difficult to narrow down to just ten, as there are so many other brilliant eateries that we have thoroughly enjoyed in 2021.  But in the past year, we have visited all of these great venues on more than one occasion, and they have never failed to impress. So, in no particular order


1 Il Pirata

for a rustic, authentically Italian vibe.

for brilliant local produce, and excellent vegan choices.

3 Sagart

4 Edo

5 2Taps

6 Shed
