Harden's says

This nutritionally-focused tasting menu restaurant in Leigh-on-Sea offers a single dinner seating and no choice (unless you opt for the vegan menu); all dishes are gluten and dairy free with no refined sugars and made from local, seasonal ingredients (including organic meat). There's a Sunday roast lunch too.

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

A “really quirky, excellent local restaurant serving food that is designed for the health- conscious… it’s a bit of a shock not having everything slathered in butter and salt, but it’s inventive and delicious” nonetheless – and the result of something of a conversion for chef John Lawson, who was riding high as a Ramsay ally when he was diagnosed with cancer. His “delicious” and “extraordinary value” tasting menus (four courses £52 on Friday, six courses £68 on Saturday) make for a “quite exceptional gastronomic experience” by all accounts.

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).
