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

Harden's says

On the former site of The Harcourt Arms and set within a Grade-II listed Georgian townhouse in Marylebone, this gastropub and private dining space reopened in April 2016 with a new menu and a new look. Chef Kimmo Makkonen's (Greenhouse, The Orrery) European menu nods toward Nordic and Scandi cuisine.

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.

Summary

“Only a gastropub by dint of its decor, as the cuisine is restaurant quality” – this excellent Marylebone yearling provides “terrific Scandi food” and while the cooking is distinctive “it makes a welcome change from over-inventive eclectic menus you see elsewhere”. One gripe – “the music can be deafening!”

"Former pub; food OK, some good (fried sprats for example) but very expensive - and my lamb rump arrived tepid. We were talked into ordering sides we didn't need and the 'triple-cooked' chips were tepid too. We ordered two Armagnacs and got doubles (total £30) we hadn't specified. After we'd paid, as we were putting our coats on, we were told - correctly - that they had omitted an item from our £275 bill for four and made us pay. I wish I'd asked for the service charge to be taken off, but have never yet had the nerve!"
