Harden's survey result
A short walk from the back of Harrods, the bijou dining room of this luxury hotel changed its stripes a couple of years ago. Under chef Chris Prow, it now offers a much less formal dining style – with an all-day menu (majoring in dishes from the Josper grill) showcasing British cuisine – and an outside terrace in summer. Some regret the passing of the former incarnation, but overall ratings are good all round.
After a succession of different chefs (including Nathan Outlaw and Adam Simmonds), Chris Prow has presided over the stoves since May 2021 at this small, luxurious hotel, a short walk from Harrods. A new, all-day dining menu is a recent introduction, as well as an outdoor seating area which opened for the first time this summer, boosting the capacity of what is a bijou dining space.
Chris Prow now presides over the stoves in the dining room of this luxury hotel, a short walk from the back of Harrods. He follows a succession of well-known names to hold the position in the hotel, which, guided by him, recently introduced an all-day menu (so now, you can recover from shopping here at any time!). The compact interior has now been supplemented by a new al fresco dining area.
Following the departure of Nathan Outlaw, Adam Simmonds is to take over the stoves in the dining room of this luxury hotel, a short walk from the back of Harrods. The new venture will open in autumn 2019. Simmonds’s pedigree is good, and he’s the latest in a succession of star names to hold the position in the hotel. The main limitation on enjoyment here has historically been the dimensions of the dining room itself: it’s a small space, where it’s hard to generate much in the way of spark.
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).
