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.
This well-established gastropub revival of a traditional old watering hole – one of the original hip venues on the Shoreditch-City border – still pulls in a “lively and trendy clientele” with “top food” both in the bar and up the spiral stairs in a more formal dining room.
“Downstairs, they still know how to do proper pub food” – up the spiral stairs there’s a “relaxed” restaurant serving “surprisingly good” grub – at this “unpretentious” but happening Shoreditch boozer.
“A slightly cramped room above what was a traditional corner boozer” – the main dining option at this trendy and “still reliable” Shoreditch stalwart.
“Full of Shoreditch luvvies”, “a very pleasant” small dining room, up a spiral staircase from “a very popular pub”.
