Trinity Restaurant voted 33rd best in the UK at the 2024 National Restaurant Awards

The culinary scene in Clapham has just received another reason to beam with pride.

At the 2024 National Restaurant Awards, Trinity has once again proven its mettle by securing the 33rd spot on the prestigious list of the top 100 restaurants in the UK.

A Night of Culinary Triumphs

The awards ceremony was a glittering affair, and it was The Ledbury that stole the show by clinching the top position. After a meticulous post-Covid revamp, The Ledbury has made a grand comeback, reminiscent of its heyday from 2010 to 2013. Brett Graham’s dedication to elevating his restaurant to new heights has certainly paid off.

Among the notable mentions, Soho’s Mountain rocketed to the number two spot, reflecting the growing acclaim for Tomos Parry’s culinary prowess, while his other venture, Brat, also featured at number 47. The Devonshire, debuting at number 9, was another highlight, bagging the Opening of the Year award as well. Other new London entrants in the top 50 included Kolae at 27, Chishuru at 31, Brooklands at 34, and Cycene at 48.

Further afield, Moor Hall earned the third position, while last year’s winner Ynyshir dropped to fifth. Michel Roux, despite closing Le Gavroche, was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award, underscoring his enduring influence in the culinary world.

Trinity: A Clapham Gem

But the spotlight for Clapham falls firmly on Trinity. Tucked away in our beloved neighbourhood, Trinity continues to enchant both local food enthusiasts and critics alike.
