Ormer Mayfair ranks 14th best UK restaurant in Harden’s top 100

Ormer Mayfair, the restaurant from Michelin-awarded chef Shaun Rankin within the luxury boutique hotel Flemings Mayfair, was ranked as 5th best restaurant in London and 14th in the UK in the Harden’s 100 Best UK Restaurants 2018 list on Friday.

The highly sought-after 85-cover restaurant, with a focus on expertly executed Jersey-inspired dishes, has been a hit with diners since it opened, picking up numerous media accolades and exceeding all expectations.

Henrik Muehle, General Manager of Flemings Mayfair, commented, “We are delighted to have been recognised and highly ranked in this year’s prestigious guide. Thanks to the recent multi-million pound refurbishment of the hotel, we are able to offer an impeccable dining experience in the heart of London. With the talented Shaun Rankin now working full time at Ormer Mayfair, after his recent departure from Ormer Jersey, we look forward to continuing the restaurant’s success.”

Harden's guide co-founder, Peter Harden, said, “It's unusual for a chef to come from outside of London and to achieve the same level of prestige as he had out in the sticks, and to do so in such a short space of time makes this a particular achievement for Shaun Rankin.”
