Harden's survey result
Formerly popular as The Truscott Arms (RIP) which closed after the owners tussled with the landlords, this revivified boozer opened in spring 2018 as part of the trio of pubs launched by James McCulloch in partnership with the former chef/patron of Racine. It opened too late for significant survey feedback, but one early report was very enthusiastic: “it seems as if Henry Harris has worked his magic”, with some excellent dishes reported.
Back with a bang! – this Maida Vale gastropub is also back from the dead as Henry Harris (formerly of Knightsbridge’s Racine, long RIP) takes over the kitchen. It closed in August 2016 after a lengthy legal battle over rent increases, and is set to re-open in May 2018.
“It’s transformed the area!”; this “surprise gem” is “just what Maida Vale has been waiting for” – “an exceptional local”, whose first-floor dining room provides quite “complex” cuisine, alongside matching wines. Top Menu Tip – an extensive gluten-free menu.
The Hero of Maida Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Somewhat pretentious in seeming to being set up to deliver more than it actually does. A pleasant but not great placve to eat"
"Where is the Henry Harris magic?"
"Not a patch on the Truscott arms. The food was hit and miss, it’s certainly not worth full price"
