Jorge's was opened by Jorge Santos and his wife Eleanor in late 2018.

It quickly became known for its delicious range of Portuguese seafood and steak.

Its menu aims to offer something for everyone, from barbecue specialities and Hereford steak to Mozambique tiger prawns and Wagyu beef.

In a statement shared to social media, the owners said: "We want to say a massive thank you to our amazing team - we appreciate all your hard work so much.

"And to our guests, thank you so much for supporting us."

The award win comes as the neighbouring Jorge's Tasca brunch and tapas bar, in the glass-fronted Pivotal House in Orford Yard, will be closing at the end of the year.

Mr Santos said the final day will be December 23 as he wants to spend more time with his family and focus on Jorge's Restaurant.
