A restaurant in Orpington has been named as one of the most romantic spots to dine in the UK.

People flock to romantic restaurants for a lovey-dovey rendezvous because, let's face it, spaghetti shared by two is way less messy than a candlelit spaghetti wrestling match at home.

These places are like cupid's culinary playgrounds, with mood lighting which makes everyone look like celebrities, while you navigate the menu like a plot twist in a love story.

It's a chance to ditch the dishes, indulge in a gorgeous feast, and, most importantly, avoid explaining why you’ve both got pasta stains on your faces.

One spot which has been dubbed as one of the most romantic restaurants in the UK by OpenTable is Chapter One, located on Farnborough Common in Orpington.

Chapter One, a proud holder of 3 AA Rosettes, is not just a restaurant; it's an experience.

After a significant makeover in 2019, it emerged with a fresh, modern vibe curated by acclaimed chef Andrew McLeish.

For a more laid-back affair, the Brasserie offers perfected favourites using the finest ingredients.

The drinks match the excitement, boasting an AA Notable Wine List and creative cocktails.

And, if you seek an exclusive space, there's a private dining room for memorable moments, be it corporate or personal.
