After a serious #officedebate about which restaurants were the most Instagrammed in London, we asked our Twitter followers for their help and set out to find the definitive top 10.

We looked into a few different ways we could do this (and we’ll be the first to admit it’s not an exact science), but decided the fairest was to use WorldCam to count the total number of Instagram photos ‘tagged’ to a location in the last week.

We checked as many restaurants as we could, from Michelin star establishments down to the busiest McDonald’s.

Without further ado, we give you London’s most Instagrammed restaurants…

Here’s what we learned:

1) Restaurants in tall buildings make for great photo opps

2) French fries and meat = food porn

3) It’s all about the bathroom #selfie
