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

Harden's says

Blacklock Soho's big brother, in a former electricity substation below a Grade II listed building located on the site of a medieval meat markets, is now open. Fans of the original will be delighted to hear that this chop house will have a bigger bar, starters and reservations - and that cocktails will still only be a fiver.

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.


“My inner caveman loves this place!”“Chops, crispy on the outside and juicy in the middle” provide “amazing meat and amazing value” at this “laid back and very cool”, “no frills” Soho basement, which is “a case study of picking something you’re good at and sticking with it”. In Spring 2017 it opened its second branch – a larger City outlet off Eastcheap. Top Tip – “the amount of food on the ‘All In’ has to be seen to be believed!”
