The Best Affordable Restaurants in the UK


Don't Miss these Award-Winning Affordable Restaurants

From one of a kind restaurant concepts to having your dinner prepared by a celebrity chef, the UK is home to some of the most incredible restaurants you’ll find across the world. You can find everything from traditional British foods to haute cuisine on menus created by world-renowned chefs. Having said that, a lot of the best restaurants also come with a big price tag. It’s not all bad though - there are some great hidden gems which offer outstanding quality and unique experiences on a budget. Here are some of the best affordable restaurants in the UK, according to Square Meal UK’s list of top 100 restaurants.

  1. Higher Ground, Manchester

Higher Ground in Manchester is one of the highest rated restaurants in the country, coming above several Michelin Star establishments in Square Meal UK’s Top 100 list. Higher Ground showcases the best of British food on an ever-changing menu which reflects the seasonality and availability of their locally-sourced ingredients. Recipient of several food and hospitality awards, you can enjoy a mind-blowing dinner for around £30.

2. Seasonality, Maidenhead

Offering simple but elegant food in beautiful surroundings, Seasonality is an impressive neighbourhood restaurant with a big name. Focusing on making the most of beautiful ingredients when they’re in season, you can enjoy a luxurious three course meal for £49. On the reverse of the menu you’ll find the restaurant’s story and highlights from some of their local suppliers.

3. Parkers Arms, Lancashire

On first look Parkers Arms looks like an unassuming country pub, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Parkers Arms is an award-winning gastropub set in a rural village at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Featuring local, seasonal food and foraged ingredients, the pub focuses on quality without pretence. With a meal setting you back around £30 and everything down the jam made on site, it’s well worth a visit if you’re in the area!

4. Lark, Suffolk

Looking for the unique experience and high quality food of a Michelin Star restaurant on a tighter budget? Lark is an intimate, modern restaurant which offers a menu packed full of Mediterranean-inspired small plates, made from strictly seasonal ingredients. If you prefer a traditional meal, they also have a selection of larger plates for you to enjoy alone or share. You can also order the “kitchen selection” if you can’t decide or prefer the surprise! With an ever-evolving menu and dishes starting at around the £5 mark, it’s a great way to enjoy a luxurious taste of the Med on a budget.

5. BANK, Bristol

I may be biased as a born-and-bred Bristolian, but my home town’s claim to fame is without a doubt its incredible foodie culture (as well as the arts, of course!). Bristol is home to people from across the world - at last count Bristolians spoke a collective 101 different languages - and new people to the city have brought dishes from their own cultures. You’ll find anything from Syrian to Sri Lankan to Irish food, and everything in between. BANK captures this foodie culture perfectly in a Modern European take on global dishes, offering everything from leek bahjis to chicken yakitori. It’s quickly become one of the most popular restaurants in Bristol; with a wide range of small plates as well as a few larger dishes, this restaurant is the perfect place to share food with someone special.

The UK is home to some of the best restaurants in Europe, and there are so many options - not just for those with deep pockets! Whether you’re looking to treat yourself on a budget or enjoy a special occasion with a loved one, you’ll find plenty of great options to enjoy without breaking the bank.
