Harden's says

A food research hub and - more recently - restaurant in Prestonfield. Co-owner Ben Reade was Noma’s head of research and development at the Nordic Food Lab, and head chef James Murray is an alum of Le Manoir, Lyle's and Nur in Hong Kong. Guest chefs, events and pop-ups are regular features.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“In a slightly odd location and format… but always interesting!” – Ben Reade and Sashana Souza Zanella opened this crowdfunded venture a little way out of the city-centre in late 2015, with a view to ‘combine eating and drinking with arts, sciences, fun times and banter’. “Each evening seems different, with an approach like a research kitchen, and while fun combinations prevail, they are not as bonkers as you might fear”. “You feel that the whole place is totally infused with care and love for the ingredients and what they are doing – a passion you can sense, without being endlessly told about the ‘concept’ behind the restaurant”. “I’m still not entirely sold on multiple courses that I find over-punctuate the meal and interrupt conversation. But I’m really glad to have been”.

For 33 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).
