Harden's says

Having escaped Borough for Osea Island last year, Imogen Davis and Ivan Tisdall-Downes are returning to London to set up a Native restaurant in the new Browns Brook Street store. It will continue to uphold the zero-waste, ethical, sustainable, seasonal cuisine of the original, and is offering dine at home kits until restaurants re-open.

“An absolute find in the middle of Mayfair!” Having just escaped Borough for Osea Island last year, Imogen Davis and Ivan Tisdall-Downes returned to London in April 2021 to set up this newcomer in the fashionable Browns store on Brook Street. Good move, as it’s had utter raves from all and sundry for its “really brilliant food, with original food combinations” upholding the couple’s zero-waste, ethical ethos featuring hyper-seasonal, freshly foraged dishes (“Ivan must spend every waking moment conjuring up new creations”). It helps that “Imogen is a terrific front of house” and that it has the benefit of a 40-seater courtyard (lovely for this bit of town and “a gift during semi-lockdown”).

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).

"Some extraordinary combinations, which work. With 4 people, you can order literally everything on the food menu, and have an excellent diverse tasting selection. Expensive, but utterly delicious"

"Wonderful, innovative dishes that will stick in the memory - for instance the fudgy bone marrow crème brûlée. Charming, friendly front of house. Interesting wine. Not too expensive either given the location "

"Far-exceeded expectations. Quite a cool vibe, having entered through the store, but the food was great. Crab risotto almost (but not quite) too much, and bone marrow brûlée which got meatier as we got closer to the bone. A find, which we’ll definitely go back to"
