London hasn't always been known for its culinary fare; however, over the past ten to twenty years, the landscape of the chefs coming up through the ranks and opening up restaurants in London (Chef Gordon Ramsey, to name one of the most popular), has significantly raised the bar for those foodie finders out there.

Regardless if you are able to stop into one of these Gold Medal establishments or not; just make sure to grab a pint (or two) at a local pub and partake of some Bangers & Mash or Fish & Chips!
