"Last year was off the scale and to start the year in this way alongside some of the UK’s top restaurants; including the likes of Andrew Fairlie, Gleneagles Hotel, Auchterarder (Number one), Core by Clare Smyth, London (number five), and L’Enclume, Cartmel (number eight) is amazing!

“Being listed at number 10 is huge for us, especially as Harden’s is diner led, which means that it represents a true reflection of how people receive what we try to deliver for every one of our guests and also recognises the hard work of every member of the team in the restaurant as we strive to improve and evolve on our journey.”
