Moor Hall in Lancashire has been crowned National Restaurant of the Year at The Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards for the second time running.

The Grade II-listed restaurant with rooms, in Aughton, is overseen by chef Mark Birchall and has built a stellar reputation since launching in 2017 for its distinctive modern British cuisine that’s based largely on produce grown within the venue’s own five-acre estate.
