Gastro Pub
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.

Great service, nice setting, excellent food. In addition a good selection of wines. Spent a wonderful evening there. Only minus: a bit too noisy place.

It was my 6 visit since 2010, and of course things changes :-)
The food is still super, but I feel that the old charm/spirit, f.ex. the cozy area with couches and the old bar has gone.
And if the customer have order before dinner drink, please wait with the starters or ask the customer, if they want to wait for it!

Wow what a night! From the moment we stepped in the door to the moment we left we were looked after the service and thoughtfulness was over and above! We arrived early and had a glass of wine at the bar until our reservation time rolled around.

On my way back from the loo I bumped into the chef sally who was very kind and listened politely to me carry on about how excited we were to be dining and that it was my sisters birthday, how she was over from Oz to surprise me for my birthday a few days before ( I over shared massively but I was genuinely happy to be there and very excited to share this experience with my sister I had not seen for 2 years) as I said Sally was very kind

When we arrived at our table there was a hand written card to my sister wishing her a happy birthday and from then On we received nothing but the very best in service and food, the food was to die for well cooked, tasty, seasonal and local! What more could you ask for... my sister was gluten free and wasn’t at all disappointed with her selection ( which is a rarity)


After dessert was delivered was were also presented with not 1 but 2 bonus birthday plates with yummy chocolate parfait ( sally had remembered both our birthdays how lovely)

The value for money in this venue is phenomenal 3 courses of absolutely delicious, well presented, just the right amount of food!! For under £50...

Book now or you will be disappointed!!!

Thank you team Harwood arm you were amazing.

The Harwood Arms NEVER disappoints. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Food is crazy off the charts good. While more upscale dining than pub, the setting is casual and comfortable. Venison anything, including their Scotch egg, is excellent. Memorable spot.

There are so many wonderful gastropubs in London. Why this one caught a food critic’s eye is baffling. The beer selection is crap and the food is predictable. Gastropub? The very best thing about it is the neighborhood.

We loved Harwood Arms! It's noisy so we had to shout, but the food was excellent, in particular my deer, which was outstanding. The sweetbreads I started with were good too, though perhaps a little too crispy so that their flavour didn't come across as well as it might have done. Others also were pleased with their choices. The wine list doesn't offer a great deal at the lower to mid price range, but we managed, and had a great evening. Parking can be tricky -- read the signs very carefully.

Amazing food, not simply of the best quality but really interesting and exciting recipes.
Very nice staff and an atmosphere between a pub and a restaurant, which is really refreshing.
I would change the music..

Gnats. Gnats. Gnats. What is all the fuss about? This is just a pub. Food is fine but under cooked. Waitress “shamed” us for not eating it all. Apparently, it’s ok to bring your dog in. Jeez. And did I mention the gnats? Save the cab fare and eat somewhere else!!!

Loved it! Had a great evening at the Harwood Arms as a first timer. My dining companion was a regular. The atmosphere was great and the food delicious. Even the water poured over the candle setting the table flowers alight couldn't dampen the experience. Highly recommend; will be returning before the year is out!

My friend and I had dinner here on our last night in London. Everything was outstanding. It’s difficult to say which course was our favorite. Our server was wonderful, friendly and helpful in answering any questions we had about the menu. Highly recommend adding the scotch egg!

Not our first visit, but this time we were a little disappointed. The bread wasn't quite as tasty. My companion's venison was too salty. Neither of us was thrilled by our sweet course.
The service was excellent. There were birthday wishes waiting on the table, and a small but beautiful birthday desert was presented.
The management didn't charge for one of the deserts to compensate for the disappointment with the venison.

Fantastic food and excellent presentation! Portions are humongous which could be positive or negative thing - I personally would have liked smaller portions and savour a bit, but no other complaint. It was fantastic food!

I had heard some good things about this place but they didn't match what I found. From the greeting as we entered to the goodbyes when we left the staff were superb, many 5 star hotels could take a leaf out of this place's book for staff attitude.
I brought a friend who had never visited the UK and, genuinely, thought our cuisine stretched no further than fish and chips... so this was a great showcase for just how impressive we can be in the UK. My friend was blown away by it, from the rich and bite worthy venison scotch egg through to the velvety, flavorsome, sumptuous deer and pork jowl main dishes it was indescribably delicious.
thanks loads to the chefs and staff at this hidden gem of a place... you deserve every accolade we can give you... especially now my friend is raving to all her colleagues and acquaintances to visit the UK!
