After sifting through over 12,000 nominations made by the public, Gordon presents his two finest local British restaurants, The West House in Kent and The Milestone in Sheffield.
Gordon's British restaurant finalists pit a pair of Yorkshire young guns against a former rock musician with a Michelin Star.
The West House in Biddenden, Kent is run by Graham and Jackie, who took a huge risk eight years ago by selling their family home to open their first restaurant. Ex-rock drummer Graham once toured with Queen, and only started cooking when he hung up his drum sticks at the age of 31. Despite this, Graham's talent for creating unpretentious British food was confirmed within 18 months of opening when he won a coveted Michelin Star.
The Milestone in Sheffield is a gastronomic wonder located in what was once the heart of the city's red light district. Yorkshire born Head Chef Simon and his sous chef James serve up mouth-watering helpings of big flavoured, hearty British food.
Gordon puts both restaurants through a series of tests with dishes including mackerel fillet with cucumber jelly; beetroot and frozen horseradish; and cured salmon with cucumber, lime and gin. Plus great meaty British classics including roast venison loin with onion marmalade, potatoes and pickled cherries, and grilled marsh lamb cutlet with sweetbreads, broad beans and peas.Watch now on 4oD
