Harden's says

Originally supposed to launch with Nuno Mendes at the helm, this Barworks project was then the first solo restaurant for TV chef and writer Gizzi Erskine (although she left in the summer of 2018) – the new neighbourhood venue in Hackney's Keltan House incorporates a bar, restaurant, deli and café.

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

“A wonderful addition to the area” – a 10,000 square feet market inside the transformed base of a formerly run-down, Hackney office-block, which is the brainchild of Marc Francis-Baum (owner of a string of bars and pubs). With its flowers, vintage design-pieces, artisan coffee, bar, open kitchen and ‘dining room’ he’s channeled hipster design pheromones to maximum zeitgeisty effect. It’s not a majorly foodie hotspot, but “the atmosphere’s buzzing, and the drinks are always flowing. Love it!”

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).
