Gareth Ward's restaurant, Ynyshir in Wales, has been named the best in the UK, the first to claim the top spot in the award's 16-year history.

London's eateries took the crown at this year's National Restaurant Awards when the winners were announced.

The Ritz chef Spencer Butcher was also crowned the winner of the Chef to Watch prize.

Considered the most prestigious restaurant accolades of all, the National Restaurant Awards are an annual show during which the nation's 100 best restaurants are honoured by special awards.

The Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards are the annual countdown to Britain's top 100 best eateries voted for by the leading chefs, restaurant professionals and food writers in the United Kingdom.

The fifth place and the first prize of the year was won by BiBi, a progressive Indian restaurant, which combines traditional subcontinental cuisine with development and a product-orientated approach.
