Decide where to eat based on socially sourced, carefully curated ratings and reviews.

Votes are taken from 1,000s of fellow foodies, who take part annually in the Harden's Annual National Diners Poll. Harden's editors then carefully weed this data for cheats and distil the feedback into statistically-derived ratings and short reports quoting from diner feedback.

Since 1991, we've been "telling it like it is" based on one of the UK's most detailed surveys of restaurant-goers. Each year, approximately, 8,000 ‘reporters’ (that's what we call diners who take part in the survey) contribute 50,000 reviews. And now you can even submit reports to us directly from the App.

With detailed coverage of the UK and London, the app features over 1,400 listings outside the capital, and more than 1,400 within London itself. (Outside London, that’s more listings than our rival, the Good Food Guide; and inside London, about five times as many reviews as the Good Food Guide!)

Launching in early 2021 (pandemic allowing), Harden’s Platinum is a new level of Harden’s membership linking Harden’s community of diners with the UK’s best Restaurants and Hotels.

+ Gain access to a kitchen tour or an area that would otherwise be out-of-bounds.
+ Enjoy a perk like a complimentary course or glass of English Sparkling wine.
+ Access a special rate as a thank you when you spend more than average at a particular establishment

You will also receive priority access and special rates when booking "Harden's Invites" events and online happenings.

Great Find

Came across this App via a restaurant link on Instagram. Great information and easy to use the App. Kinda use this like Trip advisor
If you write reviews on this you receive reward of free annual subscription which is great if you wish to consider a further purchase.
Restaurant choices can be a minefield so this App can be useful
Be great if the App could link discounts to dine

This app is brilliant! Completely trusted reviews and it can track where you are which is really useful. I use it loads for work and travel to find the best food near where I am. I’m a total foodie and I reckon it’s bang on regarding my local (north London) eateries. Also lots of search options which is helpful in the capital - cuisine types etc. Also updated regularly. I’ve tried a few restaurant apps and this is the best by far.

Totally rewritten app

This new version is completely different from the former one. Restaurants update now as soon as they open, and are removed as they close. I don’t know what one other reviewer is saying about Shoreditch — our office is in this area and anywhere you would expect to be included is in, including very recent openings. All the restaurants mentioned in the other review as not being included are included.
