Fifteen years ago, brothers Richard and Peter Harden launched their first and best-selling guide, Harden's London Restaurants - now the longest-established pocket guide to London restaurants. In 1998 a companion volume was launched: Harden's UK Restaurants. The opinions expressed in both guides are based on what is now the largest annual survey of restaurant-goers in the UK (over 8,000 people took part for the 2006 edition, contributing over 90,000 reports). In addition the brothers have visited practically every restaurant listed in the London guide, and many of those listed in the UK volume. Their personal visits are always conducted anonymously, and at the firm's expense.


You can also shop online for their best-selling books: London Restaurants, UK Restaurants, Good Cheap Eats in London, Bars & Pubs and the indispensable Party, Conference & Event Guide. P&P costs from £1.50.
