Harts Group's May 2022 newcomer again celebrates Spanish cooking over fire. Like its Coal Drops Yard sibling, the venue will have an outside terrace (with 40 covers) with tabletop ‘parrilla’ grills, for guests to cook themselves over coals. But, for the first time, you will not have to DIY here, there also being an indoor restaurant (with 60 covers) with a menu designed for sharing cooked on an Ox Grill and an apple and olive wood-fired stove at the heart of an open kitchen.
Harden's survey result
“In an outdoor, but well-sheltered setting”, the Hart Bros’ outside-only terrace in Coal Drops Yard has won a good following: “dining outside on a sunny day is a highlight”, and the tabletop ‘parrilla’ grills allow guests the fun of cooking their own meat, seafood and vegetables over coals. On the downside, though, “results can be very average at high prices” and “while it works as a novelty, having a proper chef to cook for you is generally a better option in a restaurant!” In May 2022 (too late for survey feedback), they opened a second Borough Yards location. Like its sibling, it too has an outside terrace (with 40 covers), also with grills. But, for the first time, you will not have to DIY here, there also being an indoor restaurant (with 60 covers) with a menu designed for sharing cooked for you in the open kitchen.
For 32 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).
