Harden's survey result
Not enough people have commented yet
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.
Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.
Do you think it deserves to be better known?
Write a quick review now using our restaurant diary service. That way it might catch our attention. Next survey, you can transfer your diary entry into our survey system. Everyone who contributes 5 or more reviews in our survey will qualify for a free guide.
Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Freshly sourced ingredients from the market in which restaurant is situated.Great cheese board with artisan cheeses. Best to go at lunchtime when the market is open as it has a buzzing atmosphere."
"Gastropub, somewhat unremarkable from the outside but with a very pleasant interior. Service friendly, reasonable but nothing remarkable. Very good starter (chicken parfait with toast & chutney) and dessert (panacotta with raspberries) but let down by a rather mediocre main (roast beef and veg etc). Â£46 per head for 3 courses, glass of wine, coffee, sparkling water and service."
"Think more of themselves than matches reality. Food was competent but not exciting."
"An ocean of stillness at the bar on a hot and crowded west end Saturday, enlivened by cracking oysters (Dorset & Menai) and comforting sole goujons. Service attentive. Wine good but expensive."
"Very well cooked simple fish dishes. Fantastic location on the beach at Whitstable."
"Although the food tasted good and the setting is gorgeous, I feel I have to criticise the very meagre helpings, this is not a cheap restaurant but the size of both the starter and the main was really small. Such a shame as the place and view is really lovely. It made it veryoor value for money and also left all our party of six still hungry."
"Nice local french style restaurant. Very good value set lunch menu. Cooking can be variable"
"Still waiting for standards to drop here given their mammoth roll out - but they never do. An absolute bargain."
"Well-balanced menu, cooked with care and sometimes flair, in a splendid riverside setting. But service can be leisurely to a fault."
"Simply not enough staff! Food was good. The the staff were friendly but they could not cope. We had to wait nearly 20 minutes before anyone appeared at our table!"
Harden's review of the reviews
The Observer's critic-in-chief heads to Manchester to try out the new Hawksmoor and stumbles across a veggie dining room, 1847, serving great food â€“ well, apart from the desserts. Read our roundup of restaurant news in Manchester and enter our Hawksmoor Manchester competition.
Meanwhile the Guardian's Marina O'Laughlin pays a visit to the much gushed about Kitty Fisher's
Everyone else love, love, loves it but Marina can't help but feel she's ended up at a house party she wasn't quite invited to, particularly as the restaurant staff seem allergic to answering the phone. We can attest to that having called them on at least 10 occasions without success.
The award for most ferocious review this week has to go to The Sunday Times's A A Gill
The critic has a thing or two to say about Mayfair's 'ridiculously overpriced' Mexican, Peyote, including: â€œ...fiddly, neurotic preparation with pale, polite taste and silly, parsimonious sharing plates that arenâ€™t bounteous or fun and are more like eating the catering pitch for a drug cartelâ€™s wedding.â€
Over at The Times, Giles Coren gives his opinion on Russian-imported pizza chain Bocconcino
â€œBocconcino isnâ€™t a bad restaurant. It just isnâ€™t a necessary restaurant.â€ At Â£202 for pizza and pasta it's not hard to see why Mr Coren might feel that way â€“ mind you, a Â£46 bottle of wine probably helped nudge the bill up.
And last but not least, Ms Maschler reviews Brindisa's new Morada Asador
The Standard's long-standing critic heads to the latest outpost of this tapas chain (in Soho) and finds the meats are the reason to flock here â€“ from the 'delectable' milk-fed lamb to theÂ Secreto Iberico.
