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

In July 2021 (after our survey concluded) this new venture took over the New Town site of Martin Wishart's The Honour (RIP). The new operator is local restaurateur Stefano Pieraccini of The Rocca Group, which also includes The Broughton and – a perennial favourite with Harden's reporters – The Seafood Ristorante in St Andrews. Italian dishes are made with locally sourced Scottish ingredients.

For 31 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).
