Britain’s Top Foodie Property Hotspots

3rd Apr 2013


According to a recent article by the Telegraph, proximity to a world-class restaurant can add anything from 10 to 25 per cent to property prices. The hall marks of a community appear to be where people know how to enjoy the good things in life. Well we definitely go along with that at Design Restaurants and make it our mission to bring to our own community of members all the finer things in life that we believe you may enjoy!

It seems that market towns and not the big cities attract some of Britain’s best restaurants. Some of them won’t surprise you, such as the Michelin rich Bray and fishy favourite, Padstow but there are some definite discoveries.

Here is Max Davidson’s list of the Top Foodie Hot Spots – which can also add thousands to the price of your home – along with the Design Restaurant Club restaurants you can enjoy there!



1. Ludlow, Shropshire (Le Becasse)

2. Padstow, Cornwall (The Lugger)
