There’s no ideal restaurant to celebrate Father’s Day. Your dad could be a stereotypical steak-loving bloke, or a vegetarian. He could be a wine connoisseur or a guy who likes nothing better than to put away six pots at lunch. Whatever kind of dad you have, Father's Day is uncomfortably close (Sunday September 1), which means it's time to get booking.
We've assembled a diverse list of bookable restaurants, with an emphasis on quieter, more classic spots where the family won't have to yell to make conversation. Stick to the top dozen entries if you're keen to splash out and make your dad feel special. Look further down if you're after a more relaxed, communal environment, such as a pizzeria, neighbourhood bistro or pub.
