Named UK's best restaurant in the Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards in 2016 and 2017
and Number 1 in the 2017 Square Meal UK Top 100 Restaurants outside London
For home cooks, Stephen Harris, the chef at the UK's #1 restaurant, The Sportsman, shares the
age-old and modern techniques to perfect 50 British classics.
From all appearances, The Sportsman, in Whitstable, Kent, is a standard English seaside pub. Following
years of hard work, Stephen Harris has transformed this bucolic locale into an internationally acclaimed
restaurant serving innovative regional cuisine that has earned it the top spot in Britain – and a cult
following around the world. The simple, stylish recipes in Harris's debut cookbook epitomize all that's
great about British cooking, and showcase his pared-back style, while his personal writings and
memorabilia provide rare insight into an extraordinary life.
