Harden's says

What a backstory! Jazz musician, Tim Thornton, lost his income in the pandemic and, with the help of his wife, sold pizza to bring in cash. Being in West London, it was (naturally!) from a special, low GI mix for the bases, alongside some upscale toppings (Stichelton blue cheese, crispy cured pig cheek, etc). And now he’s opened his own pizza caff: it’s on the site, opposite King Street W6’s Tesco Metro, that was formerly Piate (RIP), a cheery small Greek: itself, a victim of the pandemic. So, something lost, something gained on this site.

Jazz music’s loss was Hammersmith pizza-lovers’ gain: professional bass-player Tim Thornton lost his living when live music was silenced under lockdown, so he turned to making “really delicious” pizzas. Now he has a “fantastic little pizza restaurant” on King Street that is “busy and full of locals” (“the best pizzas we’ve eaten in years – a real find!”).

Most reports are out-and-out raves: “it rocks” thanks to its “delicious toppings and great ingredients”.

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).
