Harden's says

New grill-focused restaurant, bakery and food shop with a large garden terrace, from Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, founders of Frieze (it's next door to the Frieze offices).

Summary

Aside from its nondescript location near Aldwych, this autumn 2021 newcomer is strong on fashionable credentials. In a Soho House property (yes); backers are famous in the art world (the duo behind art fair, Frieze – yes); large al fresco terrace (yes); cooking over open fire (yes); on-site baker and food shop (yes). Here’s hoping it’s as good off paper as on it.

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).
