Launched in 2004, Gourmet Britain is NOT a directory like Yellow Pages or Google, we only list the BEST, so you don't waste your time. We are the only online guide focusing on the Best Food Suppliers, Best Restaurants and Best Places to Stay the British Isles has to offer - if you aren't listed here, you are not amongst the best - or need to apply!
If you run a food shop or restaurant, you can apply for a free listing - which are given purely on merit! An annual subscription for other businesses costs very little. If you join we will actively promote any special events you tell us about!
GB has become a firm favourite of many, attracting 1,000’s of visitors a day; and has had excellent reviews - see our Testimonial section.
We also let out pretty, rural, rustic gites in the Charente region of France see - https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/6395456?location=Lesterps%2C%20France&s=YzIjzW6E & https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/7816758?location=Lesterps%2C%20France&s=ylHwMo30 - where Simon Scrutton also offers #Cookery Courses see http://www.gourmetbritain.com/cookery-wine-schools/32475/simon-scrutton-french-cookery-demos-16420-lesterps/
Gourmet Britain has expanded over the years to include a growing Encyclopaedia and Recipe section.
Plus we now list ‘Kitchenware Shops’, ‘Kitchen Designers’, ‘Outside Caterers’, ‘Wine, Beer & Cider’ and all you need for a in the way of ‘Wedding Services’ - for which there's a very small charge (but even for a Premium entry, which up to 7 photographs - this amounts to less than £1 per week).
Over a period of time, if businesses are not listed here - they will be invisible on Britain's only 'one-stop-food-based site'.
If you are looking for a restaurant, food shop or place to stay in in town - and can't remember the Gourmet Britain name - simply put 'Gourmet Place to Stay/Restaurant/Food Shop' in your favourite search engine & our recommendations will be displayed.
But over time the best businesses will apply or be invisible to lovers of good food. So if you feel you own a business which qualifies, apply now or you miss an opportunity!
If you own a listed business & would like a non-marking window badge showing you are recommended, please send us £2, and we will send you one by return.
Our 'Emporium' department-store-style is a catch all bonus – where you’ll find every conceivable and inspiring gift for all members of the family. Again, we are fussy, and only list the best of their type - be it pottery, unusual gifts or the hire of a wedding car.
We hope you enjoy exploring our website.
