Explore Harden's - The restaurant guide created by you for you

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.


This year-old relaunch of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s dining room on the first floor of its Georgian townhouse HQ was named AA Scottish Restaurant of the Year in September 2017. Our survey feedback is limited but extremely positive praising “consistently imaginative tasty food and great value for money”. There’s a short à la carte here of which the most impressive feature is the cheeseboard, or a £75 taster menu (including a wine or whisky match at each stage).
