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

Harden's says

Chef Jonathan Lawson, who worked with Theo Randall for five years is opening his own place, which he describes as 'regional Italian with Moorish and Spanish influences'. An open kitchen with ringside seats will offer views to rival those from the first-floor restaurant that overlooks the heart of hipster Shoredicth.

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.

Summary

“Precious moments” are created by Jonathan Lawson’s superb small plates (“pasta is especially wonderful”) at this artfully worn-looking and laid back newcomer in Shoreditch (where else?), comprising a compact ground floor bar area, and “nice but slightly cramped” upstairs room.
