Harden's says

With a vague connection to Linden Stores, which it replaced in 2020, The Nook is Angus and Lale Oztek-Pook's joint project; they have also worked together at Arthur Hoopers and The Mash Inn, Bucks. It's an all-day venue serving "contemporary European with a Turkish twist" fare, and there's also records for sale,

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

It’s a bit less nook-like than it looks, if you head to the larger basement of this summer 2020 Highbury newcomer: a deli by day and neighbourhood café in the evenings. With a vague connection to Linden Stores (RIP), which it replaced in 2020, there’s a Turkish twist to the contemporary European small dishes and sharing plates. Limited early feedback, but very positive all-round.

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).
