For Londoners, By Londoners: Harden's Restaurant Guide Is A Must-Have

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Harden's.

The next time you have that 'where do we eat?' dilemma, pick up a copy of Harden's London Restaurants — it's the ultimate authority on London's restaurant scene.

The only printed restaurant guide to London, this week it's launching its 26th edition. Whether you want to discover the city's top chef, London's best-loved pub, or highest rated dining establishment, the Harden's guide is where to turn to.

Harden's is a restaurant guide unlike any other. It's based entirely on the carefully curated diners' reviews and ratings (50,000 reviews by 7,500 diners).

From street food to high-end, it covers 1,600 eating establishments from all corners of the city, and at all price-levels, from less than £10 per head to...well, how much have you got to spend?

Every restaurant shows a carefully calculated formula price, so you don't get caught out thinking somewhere is much cheaper than it actually is.

Harden's latest survey reveals the UK's most expensive restaurant, The Araki, has the highest food rating in London. Its head chef Mitsuhiro Araki is also the proud winner of London's best chef.

The Ledbury scored the most votes for diners' top gastronomic experience, while city champion Chez Bruce won Londoners' favourite restaurant for the 12th year running.

Mark Gevaux, The Rib Man, whose "massive street food rolls piled high with meat" scored 5/5 in the guide.

The book also covers pubs, with Waterloo's Anchor & Hope clinching the top spot as Londoners' favourite pub.

And because of who writes it, the Harden's guide isn't afraid to be honest, often brutally so. This year, Sexy Fish claimed the title of London's most overpriced restaurant... oops.
