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.
“In spite of another chef change, it goes from strength to strength!” – David Moore’s “intimate” Fitzrovia townhouse is one of the capital’s most enduring havens of gastronomy, with “very precise, fine attention to every detail”. “Staff are charming from start to finish” and Andy McFadden’s “assured” cuisine can be “extraordinary” (“he makes the food burst into life!”) There’s “one of the best cellars in London” too, presided over by the “helpful and hugely knowledgeable sommelier”, Mathieu Germond.
David Moore’s “perennially excellent!” foodie temple in Fitzrovia remains one of London’s prime gastronomic ‘heavy hitters’ – service is “outstanding”, the “very clever” cuisine is “a joy”, and a friendly sommelier oversees a “treasure trove” of wine. Stop Press – chef Marcus Eaves left in early September 2015, but David Moore has a good track record of attracting the best talent here.
Marcus Eaves’s “fabulous food, beautifully presented” maintains David Moore’s “plush” Fitzrovia fixture as one of the capital’s foremost foodie temples; the ambience can seem “stuffy” though (going on “dull”, if you sit at the front).
“An outstanding restaurant, with a team in full song!”; David Moore’s “sophisticated” Fitzrovia fixture offers not just Marcus Eaves’s “exquisite” cuisine, but also a “brilliant” wine list (including some “great global discoveries”), and notably “discreet” and “friendly” service too.
