Harden's survey result
“Culinary standards are being maintained, but the smaller new venue is a little less inviting” is the near-universal ‘take’ on Tim Hart’s “downsized” modern brasserie, which has left its seminal 1990s quarters (Jonathan Meades was a big fan, back in the day) to be incorporated into the former bar of his nearby hotel, near the Castle: “the entrance is unprepossessing and surroundings somewhat cramped, but the food’s fine”.
“Utterly reliable in every way: year in and year out, it’s always a real pleasure to visit” – few restaurants have the longevity of Paul Hart’s modern brasserie “favourite” near the Castle: an “attractive and airy” (and business-friendly) environment, with a “calm and quiet” (“slightly bland”) atmosphere, a “well-run” air, and very dependable modern British cuisine. “What’s not to like?”
Tim Hart’s “very polished” contemporary brasserie near the castle has been a linchpin of city-centre dining since the early ’90s, and – outside of the ‘fine dining’ vein – remains the city’s No. 1 destination, thanks to its combination of a “well-executed” modern menu produced “with some flair” and “very professional service”. The setting provides “an excellent ambience for lunch meetings” – by night it can seem a little less atmospheric.
Tim Hart’s “modern”, ’90s brasserie near the castle is one of the city’s culinary linchpins and remains the most commented-upon place in the city centre. A “slick” operation, it’s still seen by many reporters as a “reliable” favourite, but ratings waned this year amidst complaints from one or two regulars of increasingly “predictable” cooking, and a “lack of atmosphere”.
