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.
Paul Askew, formerly of the Hope Street Hotel and London Carriage Works, has opened a “gorgeous” new fine dining venture in a Victorian ex-children’s home; it's certainly a “bold” venture, and while fans proclaim the experience “superb”, sceptics cite “variable” food as proof that he's “not quite pulling it off so far”.
The Art School Restaurant Diner Reviews
"This is a pretentious establishment that really is unable to live up to its price tag. The restaurant itself is too brightly lit and bare and lacks that special something for a romantic night out. Staff try hard- too hard in fact -and come across as sycophantic. The wines we had with our tasting menu wine flight were simply cheap and dull. The Charles Heidseck champagne was the only highlight. The chef is former London Carriageworks and unfortunately he is struggling to make this work. Flavours are too overwhelming eg orange sauce with duck which was far too bitter . The venison was tough and overcooked. Very expensive for what it offers . Not in the league of its London or Cumbrian counterparts ."
