London's Dinner by Heston at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Kensington has been named one of the top 10 restaurants in the world.

The high-end eaterie from the creator of the Fat Duck, Heston Blumenthal, was named the seventh best restaurant in the world in the prestigious annual rankings compiled by Restaurant magazine.

El Celler de Can Roca, in Girona, Spain, took the accolade of the best in the world, reclaiming a title it previously held in 2013.

Brett Graham's The Ledbury in Notting Hill was ranked at number 20. However, both London spots fell in the rankings - Diner fell two places, while The Ledbury dropped 10 places.

The capital also boasts three further restaurants in the top 100.
