How do Forks-Up determine a restaurant’s “Forks-Up” Rating?

We’ll rate the restaurants we review, taking into account everything from ambience to flavour, from service to the wine list, from variety to value for money. We’ll score each restaurant by putting our “Forks-Up” for them: one Fork-Up is pretty unimpressive; five Forks-Up is downright brilliant.

– One Forks-Up, Un-impressive


– Two Forks-Up, Not a recommended restaurant.


– Three Forks-Up, Decent value for money, however there’s room for improvement.


– Four Forks-Up, A very good restaurant and one that would recommend you try out some time.


– Five Forks-Up, It doesn’t have to have a Michelin Star to get Five Forks-Up, but we’d strongly advise Michelin to come visit them! They’ve got everything from ambience and great food to perfect service.


We also assign Half Forks-Up where we can’t decide exactly where the reviewed restaurant ranks.
