Harden's is a UK restaurant guide, publishing guides to both London and UK restaurants. Like Zagat Survey, they incorporate a reader survey, and are also based on the personal visits of brothers Richard and Peter Harden.
It is published annually, and in addition to evaluating individual restaurants, and "Best of", it provides analysis of the restaurant scene and developments over the past year.
The idea for Harden's Guides came at the beginning of the 1990s, when Peter was working in New York and Richard in Düsseldorf. Both cities had handy, opinionated, pocket restaurant guides of a type which simply didn't exist in London.
