Tan Hill Inn, Richmond, North Yorkshire, England, UK

At 1,732 feet (528m) above sea level, the Tan Hill Inn is Britain’s highest pub, waiting on its lonely hill for people to travel up by car, on foot or by huff-puffing up the hillsides on a bicycle. The setting is just glorious, with the 17th-century inn and its outdoor seating and bubble domes looking out over the Yorkshire Dales. Despite its isolation, plenty of people are willing to make the journey for a warm welcome and proper pub grub.

Best Restaurant Location

 

The Lost Kitchen, Freedom, Maine, USA

It’s not just the location of The Lost Kitchen that makes it hard to get to, tucked in a renovated 19th-century grist mill reached via a bridge spanning a babbling brook. It’s also the way tables are allocated, via a postcard lottery. People send requests in the mail and hope to be picked. The lucky few get to dine in the beautiful, wood-accented home of chef and founder Erin French, whose all-female team create the ever-changing tasting menu based on locally-sourced produce.

Best Restaurant Locations

 

Hotel Everest View, Khumjung, Nepal

The dining room in Hotel Everest View is among the highest in the world, which makes sense since it’s inside what claims to be the highest-placed hotel in the world. Perched on a ridge in Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park and 13,000 feet (3,962m) above sea level, the restaurant serves regional Khumbu cuisine and has an ancient boulder in lieu of a back wall. Despite its remote location, the restaurant is open to passersby as well as hotel guests – although, by passersby, we mean people trekking in the mountains or landing on the hotel’s helipad.

Refuge du Plan de l’Aiguille, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France

This mountainside hostel and restaurant soars at around 7,240 feet (2,207m) above sea level so it would be easy for hikers, light-headed from the altitude and tired from hiking the Chamonix needles, to suspect they’re imagining things. But, no, this really is a dream place to rest and refuel with traditional Savoyard cuisine, most of it (very deliciously) involving cheese and potatoes. Refuge du Plan de l’Aiguille is at the foot of the Aiguille du Midi, with views across to Mont Blanc.

Best Restaurant Location

 


KOKS, KirkjubÞur, Streymoy, Faroe Islands

KOKS is a remote restaurant in a remote village on a remote island that’s part of a remote archipelago. But that doesn’t put off food pilgrims determined to try the two-Michelin-starred “New Faroese” cuisine, seasonally driven and crafted with local ingredients. The dining experience begins with a drink in a hut by Leynavatn (Lake Leynar) before guests hop in a jeep for a bumpy ride up to the restaurant. Those who visit in winter may just see the Northern Lights dance overhead too
