Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
If it wasn’t all a bit “wacky” it wouldn’t be a Paul Kitching restaurant. With “really weird decor (think Michelin handbook meets a mid-90s computer game!)”, and food that provides “odd (sometimes inspired) combinations of flavours and ingredients”, this Georgian townhouse is certainly a “quirky” venue; “there’s a lot of fun here, however, including service which is far from stuffy” – even if at root this is a “textbook fine dining experience”. “Expect to take a lovely long time over your meal – an amazing collection of different tastes.”
“Witty, subversive, delicious, surprising, serious....” – Paul Kitching’s cuisine is certainly anything but predictable, and especially “for something different” the open kitchen at his “romantic” Calton Hill townhouse is just the job for an “unusual” culinary experience that fans find nothing short of “sublime”.
Critics may find the menu a trifle “weird” and “fussy”, but the general verdict on Paul Kitching’s cuisine is that “he deserves every award he is winning” for his Calton Hill townhouse – “prepare to be surprised and enjoy!”.
“Loved every minute!”; Paul Kitching’s “magnificently odd” cuisine – “nothing is as it seems” and “every mouthful is a new, and newly complex experience” – inspires notably consistent praise nowadays for his Calton townhouse venture.
