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.

OK food, nothing special. Expensive at full price. Reasonably priced wine list. Historic building with cosy dining rooms.

My first visit here with a dear friend catching up after a while and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left I had a smile on my face! The service was friendly and efficient without being intrusive and the food was to die for! The best venison EVER! 50% off menu in the evenings makes it extremely good value for the city. I shared a post on FB and lots of people came back saying they'd been and loved it....not surprised at all! 20/10!! Already planning next visit :)

I have been to Harry's Bar over 10 times but on this occasion it was disappointing. The waiter was very nervous. The chicken soup was vegetable soup with no chicken in it and my friend ordered a pasta dish but she didn't realise it had clams so she sent it back which was accommodating but it spoilt the whole evening and it was my birthday.

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!

Lovely comments - thank you so much! The salmon is indeed delicious, as is the Chef's homemade fish stew (my favourite) which is often on the menu too so do give that a try when next in. Debra

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.

Harry's Bar
Responded on 1 February 2019

This is totally untrue. You spent some time in our restaurant drinking and dining and paid your bill. A week later you disputed the amount of drinks which our staff clearly recall serving. As discussed with you we do have CCTV but there wasn't a camera in the area you were in. Your claim is for 1 bottle and 2 glasses of wine and we offered to return your S/C which would have covered most of this but you declined. I trust you will find another restaurant and bar to suit your tastes.

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.

Responded on 16 January 2019

I am sorry you felt disappointed with your experience at Harry’s Bar. I understand you booked on line via Opentable requesting a table in our dining room, which had been booked for a private event. Being unable to get in contact with you we complimented a bottle of Prosecco. We have no knowledge of anyone asleep/soiling themselves and this would not have been tolerated. It was a very busy Christmas evening and apologise if all did not go to plan but are pleased to hear you enjoyed your food.

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.
