Harden's says

After the UK's largest restaurant crowdfund (over £200,000 raised in just 28 days), Gary Usher - of Burnt Truffle, Sticky Walnut and Hispi - will be opening this new Liverpool bistro in October 2017. An astonishing start to what promises to be another successful venture from Usher; a fundraising launch-night meal from Tom Kerridge sold out in 15 minutes.

“Another of Gary Usher’s fabulous bistros” is a typical take on this “great addition to the city-centre”: a stylishly refurbished three-year-old (formerly a derelict workshop), in the city’s merchant quarter, that’s nowadays the city’s most-mentioned eatery. Its gutsy, affordable fare is generally well-rated, but ratings sipped a notch this year on some more middling reports (“good in parts…”, “good but expected more…”, “prices are slightly high even if everything they do, they do well…”)

“The Latest (and flagship) branch of Gary Usher’s small but perfectly formed bistro chain” – this November 2017 newcomer (at the time of opening, the product of Kickstarter UK’s biggest ever restaurant campaign) has created more of a splash than any Liverpool opening of the last decade: an “impressively refurbished” workshop in the city’s old merchant quarter that’s now a “buzzy” and “lovely” space (where some of the seating is communal) and with “charming” staff. “Recognisably following his rewarding general formula” – it “serves quality produce in a fresh and interesting way, and delivers great value”. Quibbles are minor: e.g. “many things to love about this place, with some great cooking and brilliant ideas, but some dishes just need better balance to counteract the riot of flavours”. Top Tip: “Early bird dinner menu (two courses for £17) is a no-brainer”.

For 30 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).
