toptable diners reveal their top 25 most romantic UK restaurants

February 6, 2013

In anticipation of one of the most romantic days of the year, toptable, a leading consumer destination site for restaurant bookings in the UK along with its parent company, OpenTable, Inc. (NASDAQ: OPEN), revealed today their diners’ top 25 most romantic restaurants. The list reflects the combined opinions of approximately 400,000 reviews submitted by verified toptable diners for nearly 4,000 restaurants across the UK.

The top 25 shows French cuisine as the hot choice for romance ahead of Valentine’s Day this year, accounting for almost half of the list, while Italian and British are also proving popular romantic cuisines. Despite the growing popularity of Asian food amongst UK diners, there was no room for Chinese, Indian or Thai cuisine in the top 25, with the list consisting entirely of European restaurants.

“Romance can mean very different things to different people but a gorgeous meal, perfect service and warm atmosphere make for an undeniably romantic combination. Each of these restaurants offers a different romantic experience, but all are truly best of class,” said Lucy Taylor, head of restaurant relations at toptable.

“When it comes to Valentine’s Day, the top restaurants fill up quickly so it is always best to book early. However, many diners still wait until the last minute and plenty of availability can be found on toptable.co.uk. Last year, almost 30% of bookings for Valentine’s Day were made on the 13th and 14th February,” she added.

Fred Sirieix, General Manager of Galvin at Windows, which was included on the list commented, “We are obviously delighted to be recognised as one of the most romantic restaurants. It is especially humbling knowing the distinction is based on diner reviews. We strive to create singular experiences for all our guests and when it comes to romance this quality is especially important.”

The top 25 romantic restaurants in the UK are generated from approximately 400,000 reviews collected from verified toptable diners between January 2012 and January 2013. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which “romantic” was selected as a special feature.

Treating yourself can also be a great way to raise valuable funds for charity!

September 13, 2012

Sarah Cook, from The Beauty Event, has found a brilliant way for people to raise funds for charities whilst enjoying a unique, pampering event.

The Beauty Event was born in January 2012 after 5 years of brain storming, tweaking, quizzing all my girlfriends & making a ginormous list of all the beauty and skincare brands that I wanted to be involved! Right from the very beginning I had some very strong ideas about how I wanted the events to be and I believe these principles have remained strong and will continue to do so to provide amazing events for women to really treat themselves, relax, be pampered and feel special with other like minded women.

Supporting a charity is a fundamental core of our events and these charities are carefully chosen as they are especially important for women. Our launch event supported the MS Therapy Centre in Bristol , which does an incredible job to support those with Multiple Sclerosis and their families. They not only offer many different therapies including counselling but also support, advice and a place for friendships to form and grow.

For our next event we are proud to be supporting Breast Cancer Care . £5 of each ticket will be donated to the charity . Breast Cancer Care helps anyone affected by breast cancer, they bring people together, provide information and support, and campaign for improved standards of care.

We aim to offer a truly wonderful evening of quality beauty treatments, the very best products in beauty, health & well being to sample, try and enjoy (available to purchase at a discounted price), a complimentary private bar & sumptuous chocolate fountain ! There are other numerous beauty treats on offer (complimentary) in  addition to each guests booked treatment, for example facials, mini make-up lessons, brow shaping & semi-permanent eye lash flicks !

We make it our mission that each and every guest has a evening to remember & everyone is welcome ! Our fabulous venue Hotel du Vin is wheelchair accessible and a truly beautiful setting for The Beauty Event. So if you like the sound of what we do and why we do it, we still  have a few tickets remaining for our next event on Friday 12 October so get in touch!

I look forward to seeing you all at our next event !
