Harden's survey result
For “understated excellence in all categories”, Hans Schweitzer’s accomplished outfit – which relocated to the Gonville Hotel in 2017 – is “always a must”; “if there is a downside it’s the relatively few choices available” on the menu, but beyond that everything is “absolutely exquisite” (and of a classical bent).
Distinguished chef Hans Schweitzer moved his “always outstanding” restaurant into new purpose-built premises in the Gonville Hotel in 2017 – a “lovely new location” for food that’s “inspired, finely balanced and beautifully presented” and in a culinary style that’s “interesting but grounded in established harmonies and avoiding wackiness”. “It may on first look appear expensive, but it’s worth every penny”.
After a decade in smallish premises near the Grafton Centre, Hans Schweitzer’s superior Italian venture upped sticks to the plusher environs of the Gonville Hotel in January 2017. This smartly decorated spot now offers a better backdrop for his “high-style dining with superb attention to detail” (with “surprises even in old-favourite dishes”).
For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
