Tucked away in an old cobbled yard between Cannon Street and Bank stations, Harry's Bar has a great atmosphere and vibe and prides itself on the quality of its food, wine and service, being professional yet friendly. Offering a fine British/Modern European cuisine the menu includes dishes such as new season English asparagus or seared beef and delicious main courses such as grilled fresh tuna steak on a Nicoise salad with a spring onion French dressing or grilled new season lamb cutlets. Harry's Bar is renowned for the quality and freshness of the ingredients and, in particular, the char-grilled Scottish fillet steaks which are always a winner! Some classy pasta dishes will please the carb-fans. A little gem in the City, smart yet homely surroundings and faultless service, a very easy place to feel comfortable in, Harry’s Bar is currently running an evening promotion with 50% off the evening a la carte menu. Monday to Friday 5.00pm to 10.00pm. Must have two courses, one being a main.

I went back to make sure to try the harissa salmon fillet while it was still on the menu, and was not disappointed: this is a brilliant dish. Everything else was much as before except the Nederburg Chenin Blanc has moved on to 2018, not quite such a star as the 2017 but still excellent (and perfect with the salmon). More than before, I was reminded what a pleasant room the dining room is with its timbers and quaint prints. The Old Winchester cheese is particularly good on an already strong cheeseboard. Bravo encore!

I like Harry's, a simple but perfectly fine menu reasonably priced, friendly service, some quiet corners for a decent chat and a lovely ambiance - I've been there several times and they've never let me down.

AVOID, AVOID, AVOID. Basically scammed us by adding items to the bill. When we asked post meal how we managed to consume so much, they claimed to have it all on CCTV. When we asked to see the CCTV, they then said it didn't exist. They have offered to return just the service charge, well short of the amount they scammed us for, and I declined.

The matter is now with our respective credit card companies.

There are literally dozens of really nice bars and restaurants nearby. Save yourself the bother of checking if you've been scammed and just go to them instead.

Still on form with an excellent prawns & smoked salmon starter and venison with Marsala, not quite as outstanding as the venison with garlic last year, but still very enjoyable. Nederburg wines have replaced Journey's End as the South African options, still a decent choice and a bit cheaper, with the 2017 Chenin Blanc as good as you would expect from this superstar vintage in the Cape. My delightful waitress Jodi ran the service most attentively despite the room getting quite full & busy. The Dirty Harry cocktail is a brilliant spin on the Moscow Mule ... just don't be surprised when it turns up and is pink! It still has the kick of the mule, despite the raspberries. A super evening.

This was a real find. Our waitress was lovely. It was busy and service is measured. We were not in a rush. It was a lovely place to catch up with a friend..could talk to each other and be heard.
I was on dry January and the most amazing and delicious personalised cocktail (virgin) was made for me. The best non alcoholic cocktail I have had.
Food was delicious. I had cod and chips and my friend the lamb shank and mash. Really good dishes.
The decor is quirky and the staff so friendly .
I would come back here for a mid week meet up.
Thank you Harry's Bar for a fab night. Oh and the 50% off food offer was a bonus!

The Roquefort salad was an insult. Two chicory leaves on the plate filled with the cheese and walnuts. You would never pay 11.25 for. Soup with stilton crumb was missing the stilton. Room acoustics were v noisy with a group. And the service was awkward with staff asking to pass you cutlery when genuinely easy just to come around to the other side of table. And I ripped my jacket on a loose catch on a door.

I had booked a table in the restaurant 3 weeks prior to this booking, but ended up being seated in the main bar. Where a gentleman sat at the bar had soiled himself and was asleep in his chair.

The maitre'd stated she had called me many times but didn't get an answer. However she did call "once" and that was only to confirm my booking, she then quickly changed her story to this. It was very embarrassing as this was a client dinner and this argument happened in-front of them.

We was given a cheap bottle of cava for the inconvenience, not a very nice Experience and I wont be visiting again nor recommending this to anybody else.

The only saving grace for the evening was the lovely food.

Delicious food served very quickly and a wide selection to choose from. Plates were a little bit cold though.
We were in a small room which meant that it was nice and quiet when we were the only ones there but got a bit noisy when a large table sat down next to us.
Good value with the 50% off food on the à la carte menu. Friendly service.

Staff were very friendly and happy which was nice. They were very eager to clear the table after every course though which made it feel a little rushed but this can also be interpreted as just good service. It was quiet at the time so this may be why.

Bar/restaurant itself looks great and has a great atmosphere. The menu is fantastic, varied and classy and the food itself was cooked brilliantly. I highly recommend the pigeon breast as a starter and the lamb shank was so well cooked it basically fell away from the bone when I touched it.

Value wise its not necessarily cheap but by London standards its not bad at all either. You get the sense when you arrive that it is a nicely decorated classy place so you don't mind paying for a little more luxury.

would recommend for business lunches/dates/or meals with friends if you are looking for a higher than average experience with a menu and wine list that delivers.

Overall, very pleased. Would give 4 stars.

We went for an evening with friends and we all commented that there was good food selection on the evening a la carte menu and a nice selection of wines at reasonable prices (such that we ended up having two bottles). The service was attentive but not over bearing. A hidden cosy little gem right in the heart of the City of London.

very accomodating and a good selection on the al a carte menu. They kindly agreed to put our 2 tables of 4 together making it a table of 8. The food arrived hot and the service was very good but it would have been nice to have been served some bread with the starters even if they charged for it as some of the starters come with delicious sauces which then remain on the plate ( the pidgeon breast starter being a classic example of this.) The 50% deal makes it fantastic value ( we would have happily paid the full price) and the wine selection is comprehgensive and appropriately priced.
