Harden's survey result
“We keep going back for the top-notch Japanese dishes in sumptuous surroundings”, enjoyed in the surprising venue of press baron Lord Beaverbrook’s palatial mansion in the Surrey Hills. The “super-high-end sushi” and “tasty” Japanese grilled dishes are prepared by Wojciech Popow, founder of the Polish Association of Sushi Chefs, formerly of Noma in Copenhagen and Japanese specialist Yashin in London.
This grand country-house hotel, just 20 miles from London, is where press baron Lord Beaverbrook used to entertain the great and good. Nowadays its dining room, elevated by bold decor and lofty ceiling, plays host to ex-Noma (etc.) chef Wojciech Popow’s “fabulous Japanese” – namely “remarkable” renditions of classics plus Josper-singed meats and plenty of fermentation wizardry. The grounds are an “absolute delight”, too.
For 32 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).
