Harden's says

“They do one thing and do it well” at these “posh Nandos” - “succulent free range chicken cooked on a spit, great chips, salad and little else apart from some puds” (notably “delicious apple pie”); they look “quirky” and “fun” too, “if only you could book...”

This once-thriving burger brand from Nick Jones’s Soho House group has been reduced to a single branch, under the arches in Vauxhall, and a supporting role at stablemate Chicken Shop in St John’s Wood. Fans reckon it’s “good for when you’re in a hurry” – perhaps they should hurry, while it’s still there.

“High-quality burgers” hit the spot at this funky small chain which “does the simple things well”. The outlets are “fab for families and kids – there’s something for everyone and puddings are a great crowd-pleaser”.

This hip small chain has established a solid following with its “fun” grill shacks serving “quality” burgers and “generous desserts”. “Always good for families, with something for everyone”, including “excellent chicken and sides”.

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).
