Free Listings for Award-Winning Restaurants

Leading has always, and will always, list the most complete range of award winning restaurants in the UK and Ireland found anywhere online. You can read more on our site about the guides we reference but in summary, if your restaurant is listed in any of the following:

  • Michelin Guide (holding a Star, Bib Gourmand or standard listing)
  • AA Guide (holding any number of Rosettes)
  • Hardens Top 100 Restaurants

you will automatically receive a basic free listing on our site. You can search by name or by location to find your restaurant listing.

Not Listed on Leading yet?

Is your restaurant not yet listed in a major food guide, but you feel it should be? If you believe your restaurant is of the quality required to be listed on Leading then we can add it for you; simply click here and fill in the short form now. Please note there is a one-time admin fee of £199.99 to create your listing (this will be refunded if your restaurant is not suitable for our site) and you will need to purchase a yearly upgrade from the options below in order for your restaurant to appear in our search results.

Upgrade Your Listing

Once your restaurant is listed, you can upgrade your listing to open up a massive array of additional features. These are all managed by our incredibly simple online control panel which allows you to make changes to your listing at any time you please. Prices start from under 6p per day, considerably less than some less popular restaurant websites. A summary of these additional features is shown below:

Using your comprehensive restaurant management control panel, instantly change any listing information including restaurant name, address, website, contact email, chef and much more.
Upload additional images to your listing and change the order they appear with our easy drag and drop system.
Add a lengthy text description about your restaurant to give potential customers more information.
Include HTML in your text description, allowing you to style the text as you see fit and add targeted deep links directly to your restaurant pages (great for SEO).
Upload menu files, offer vouchers and more to your restaurant listing quickly and easily.
Change the destination of the prominent 'Book Now' button on your listing page to any web address you desire.
Download a CSV with details of all users who've subscribed to email updates from your restaurant. You can then easily import this CSV into any email marketing solution you use.
When searching by name or location, your restaurant will be promoted to the top of the search results for matching searches. For example, if a user searches for restaurants within 10 miles of their home ordered by distance and your restaurant is within that 10 mile radius, your restaurant will be shown above non-promoted restaurants in their results, regardless of the distance to their home.
As standard, restaurants which lose their awards are no longer shown in our search results. However, upgraded restaurant listings are still shown.
Restaurant listing pages by default show all guide logos (including guides where the restaurant doesn't hold an award). Upgraded restaurant listings have the option to only show guide logos for restaurant guides where an award is actually held.
