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

Harden's says

The Notting Hill site that was formerly Bumpkin has had a change of fortune: Emily Roux (yes, that family) and her husband Diego Ferrari (currently head chef at Le Gavroche) have taken it over in order to create a restaurant with its own character (hence the name) - a blend of French and Italian cuisines. Emily will be front-of-house, while Diego will be at the stoves, although the menu will be decided together. Dishes will be labelled by character, under the headings 'Curious', 'Subtle' (both small plates/starters), 'Delicate' (Fish main courses), 'Robust' (Meat main courses), 'Strong' (Cheese) and 'Greedy' (Desserts).

Not enough people have commented yet

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.

Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.

Do you think it deserves to be better known?

Write a quick review now using our restaurant diary service. That way it might catch our attention. Next survey, you can transfer your diary entry into our survey system. Everyone who contributes 5 or more reviews in our survey will qualify for a free guide.
