A word from Harwood Arms
The Harwood Arms re-opened in September 2008 after some much needed refurbishment.
This rural haven in the middle of Fulham is a collaboration between Brett Graham of the famed Ledbury restaurant, Mike Robinson of the acclaimed Pot Kiln pub in rural Berkshire and Edwin Vaux from the famous Vaux brewery.
The idea is to provide Londoners with a really relaxed venue for eating the finest British produce, cooked amazingly well, accompanied by excellent beer and wine at a great price.
Making this happen in the kitchen is a team of highly skilled passionate chefs staying true to the Michelin-Starred legacy Stephen Williams left behind.

    Everything about this restuarant is excellent: the venue, the staff, the ambience, the ability to talk while dining, and, of course, the outstanding British fare. This is a top choice for an excellent dinner in London; the tube ride to Fulham is worth it.

    We had a wonderful dinner until the bill was to be paid for. Upon enquiring from waitress where to tip her she smiled and we gave her cash. After she left we found in small print on menue that was accidentally left that there was a 12.5% surcharge as a tip to staff. We left feeling like we had been in the hall of rogues

    Nice place , nice atmosphere, service was only average I don't usually moan on about places but when you charge this much it should be a very good dining experience , we had rib eye for 2 the meat should be star of show , bone marrow gravy was good flavour , Yorkshire pud overdone and filled with off cuts ! Enough meat already just trying too hard ! Sweetbreads and offal are flavour of the month again and gastro pub trying to put everything on one plate , dessert disapointing the doughnut balls with no jam ! Poor

    Our first visit to Harwood Arms was on a Friday night. It's a lovely little pub tucked away on a quiet residential road near Fulham Broadway. The food was exceptionally good. For our main we shared a 9 hour braised shoulder of roe deer. The crispy garlic potatoes were also heavenly. Sadly we were too stuffed for dessert. Service was okay but very impersonal and could've been a bit more friendly given how complimentary we were about the food.

    We live in the neighbourhood and have been wanting to try this restaurant forever. Service is very attentive, personal and friendly without being OTT. Our party of 4 went for the seabream, middle white pork, and the deer for two - all of which were an absolute success. Our friends are frequent customers and we will definitely be going back. The ambience has that English pub feel, very relaxed and warm and we notice you can even bring your doggie - which for me is a plus. Had I known, I'd have brought my dog too.

    Everything was nice from the service, the ambience, not that loud, the wine and real good food. We tried lamb and monkfish and both were delicious, not forgetting an amazing salmon started full of different textures and I am going to remember desserts with a strange taste that make you want more and more...

    I went with my friend for dinner as I had heard that the Harwood Arms was worth a visit and was staying in West Brompton. The restuarant is light and airy with ample space between the tables. The service is good and there is a wide choice of meun. It is not overpriced given the quality of the food. We had the beef platter, 2 people sharing, and it was delicious. Cripsy garlic roast potatoes, succulent beef and beautifully cooked vegetables. The dessertd were tasty and full of flavour. I would definitely recommend the Harwood and would go there again.

    Had a decent meal here on a quiet Monday evening - but perhaps not up to the standard I was anticipating. While the provenance of the ingredients could not be faulted I felt the dishes lacked a bit of the finesse and lightness of touch I would expect. For a venue reviewed so highly, I wanted to enjoy this so much more than I did.

    I didn't find anything that any other Pub in the Country, could't manage to make on the same very good level, it only should need a law obliging any Pub manager or owner that fall from 5 to 4 on igenic rate, to come here or other recognised Masters Pubs, for a 6 weeks learning.

    Harwood Arms never fails to disappoint me and my guests. Probably the best Gastro Pub in town unless you favour buzzing atmosphere of Anchor and Hope which can't be booked. The venison Scotch Eggs were so delightful that my American friend who tried Scotch Egg for the first time, he wanted to do a 'take away' some. Highly recommended for people enjoy good hearty (and gamey) food. Excellent for your foreign friends who wants taste of very best British.

    We've been visiting the Harwood for a few years now and we were still really impressed. We love the laid back atmosphere, the friendly but well informed staff- particularly the sommelier who recommended some wonderful wine. The roe deer for two is a classic Harwood dish but it was still slightly different from the last time we ordered it- and was even more delicious. Food is good value compared to other Michelin starred restaurants in town. We were a bit disappointed with our choice of dessert (the donuts with raspberry jam were a bit heavy) but aside from that another outstanding meal!

    Fulham
    Dined on 6/8/2014
    This Michelin starred pub is well located in a leafy area of Fulham. The clientele and staff sit around the mid-30s and we felt that the welcome was slightly pretentious. We have dined here before but not recently. The menu is interesting and unusual with excellent venison and squid. However the food was like warm and therefore fell short of what we expected. Extensive wine list and summer specials. We felt that they has become too complacent and have lost their edge. Around £100 per head.

    A special experience for an Italian tourist like me, representing a real break from international food (more and more similar in most parts of the world) and from conventional ambiences. The quality of food and service is without any doubt excellent, and the place is charming, with a very English soul. It isn't a cheaper option, especially for a scrimper like me, but it is really worth it.

It's one of the best food experiences I've ever had. Harmwood Arms mixes the warmth and friendliness of a pub with the thoughtfulness of local ingredients carefully chosen and an impressive range of cooking techniques. We'll be back next town we will be in London

    Despite an ordinary starter which claimed more than it was (yes there was some bone marrow with the Hereford snails but not so much as you would notice) & overpriced desserts, the meal is justly described as outstanding because of the shoulder of roe deer. It was specTACular!!! Seriously, this is a dish worth travelling from Surrey (me) & Norway (my guest) to sample. It is served with a small, violent sort of knife allowing one to hack into the meat in a Cro Magnon fashion, as befits the flavour. It is unfortunate that the waiter used the word 'jus' to describe the gravy which went with this simple but wonderful dish, but no amount of ill-judged flimflammery can detract from one of the finest meaty treats you can eat. Outstanding!

    Having left my booking for a table for 4 in central London too late, I had to cast my net wider and ended up finding this wonderful gastropub (for want of a better word) in one of the more quiet parts of Fulham. As our party included friends from the US I hadn't seen in over ten years, I wanted somewhere suitable for conversation in addition to hopefully impressing their palates. I was immediately charmed by the relaxed atmosphere and attention to detail, which would later show to apply also to the food. All dishes were wonderful creations, superbly executed, using the best British ingredients, such as the Grilled Cornish squid with smoked tomato and fennel. The wine list is impressive. We left replete and impressed!

    We enjoyed our dinner at the out of the way Harwood Arms VERY much. The food was excellent and puts the lie to the stereotypical notion that British Cuisine is unappetizing. The one disappointment was the lack of game on the menu as the advertised description of the restaurant fare seemed to stress there would be an abundance. This being said I would still give the Harwood Arms 9.5 out of 10 stars.
