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.

I had high expectations but have sadly been disappointed. Service was really bad (I received my wine for the first course only after I already finished it - and I haven't been eating fast), dishes I had were disappointing as well - Whipped chicken liver with thyme hobnobs and onion jam was all about sweet flavour - calling for some contrasting accent to elevate it. The salad was more about (pecorino) cream than about vegetables (I didn't really want all that cream where you could hardly taste pecorino - it was just a bit sweet again) and dessert - Poached cherries with vanilla cream and a brandy snap was ruined by too thick and hard brandy snap with practically no vanilla cream below. Maybe the kitchen had just a bad day?

Team is passionate about what they are doing, it is a real pleasure being served. The table we got was probably not the best situated however the treatment made up for it and the food and the atmosphere was great.
We will definitely be back next time we visit London.

Parking is a nightmare so book after 8pm if you want to park closeby. We ordered a £170 bottle of champagne to celebrate a birthday and it was served warm! they could do with a much better wine fridge. Left us disappponted. An ice bucket was offered as only solution. Food was very nice their hob nobs with the pate were amazing. Won’t be hurrying back though.

Lovely Sunday lunch with friends. Food was absolutely delicious. The roast potatoes with the Sunday roast were some of the best we’ve ever had. The skate was so good I ordered it again a week later. Strawberry trifle was so good we ate it all despite being pretty full and even the doughnuts (which I normally really don’t like) were amazing. Service was very slow but they kindly took a round of drinks off the bill to compensate. Not a cheap lunch but worth every penny.

Recommended by our son, Harwood Arms was an inspired choice. Excellent menu, great wines and exceptional, friendly service. ALL the food was delicious but the black pudding scotch eggs are just incredible.
Well worth a visit (even if just to see the Buffalo).

All three courses were divine but sooo much for lunch - we couldnt face food for the rest of the day for all the right reasons.
This is English fare as its meant to be, nothing pretentious just spot on flavours, textures and great seasonal produce.

I went to the Harwood Arms for a birthday Sunday roast. Excellent service and the roast was exquisite. They generously gave my friend a lovely plate of their signature doughnuts with a happy birthday message . I had not arranged this , it was a very thoughtful touch, thank you for a lovely Sunday experience would definitely recommend !

I attended on the back of a great review I had read, upon arrival I was delighted we would have a lovely Sunday Lunch experience. The service was good and we had a lovely table. The scotch eggs were great... I had a roast pork ‘special’ which was dry. The Yorkshire pudding, roast vegetables were good. I expressed my dissatisfaction to the waiter who was very obliging, but nothing was done. As it was a celebration, the team did bring out a desert to celebrate which was lovely.

I was expecting a pub atmosphere but it is a restaurant with no pub style seating. For a pre dinner drink we had to sit at the bar. Our order got muddled up with another table but this was rectified quite quickly. I would have expected some small gesture of apology - coffee/drink on the house but this didn't happen.

Ambience was great- a cozy pub in a quaint neighborhood. Food was traditional British fare which we loved (Scotch egg, Yorkshire pudding, etc). Service was very poor which really deflated our excitement as we first arrived. We didn’t get our orders taken until a half hour after we sat down, and the waiter never even mentioned the Sunday special to us- we happened to see it written on a chalkboard in the corner after we ordered! Food didn’t come out until an hour later and by then we were itching to get out of there.. no one even came to check on us after it was delivered either! Instead the waiter decided to turn his back to us and make small talk with the table next to us the entire time we ate, which was extremely disturbing. Food was good but it would have been a wonderful time if the service was kicked up about ten-fold.

Really great experience. We went for lunch and the quality of the food was very very good.
A bit on the pricey side for a lunch menu in London at 49.90 £ for 3 courses, especially compared to other Michelin star restaurants offering it for around 10-12 £ less, but
all dishes were well executed and delicious .
The whipped chicken liver was devine .. the veal and parsley mash were incredible.
You can see and taste Brett Graham's ( The Ledbury ) handwriting in the design of the plates and the quality of the dishes.
Well worth the visit !!

Having read all the reviews on the Harwood Arms we had high expectations but I am afraid sadly they were not met. The food was nice and well cooked but for the price, we were disappointed. You can eat for slightly less at La Trompette which is on a different level. A lot more menu choices, amuse bouche, tablecloths and a handmade truffle/chocolate with your coffee. The Harwood Arms is a no frills pub with good food and good service but sadly not for us. I am glad we tried it but would not go back.

Harwood Arms. What a wonderful, WONDERFUL find, absolutely blew me away, and easily in my top three London Sunday roasts.
There is not enough good stuff I can say about this gastropub. It doesn't offer you hot, freshly baked bread when you sit down, but it does offer thick, treacly slices of soda bread, with the lightest whipped butter with just the right tang of acidity, almost more like whipped curd than butter.
Still on the whipped theme, my whipped chicken livers with hob knobs where something from heaven. The pate melts ethereally in your mouth, almost like you didn't even eat it, other than the unctuous, deep and earthy flavour it leaves on the back of your tongue. I don't even like chicken liver - as in, at ALL, I had ordered this only because I'd read about it in a magazine - and I was crushed when I'd finished it. Crumbly, buttery homemade hob knobs take the pate from the plate to your mouth, with a splendid onion chutney to cut through the rich sweetness of the liver.
And the roast.... Ooooohhhh the roast....! We went for beef. Delicious. Everything about it. Potatoes crisp and crunchy, all of them, so you're not fighting for the darkest ones with your dinner partner. Original touches such as cheesy cauliflower croquettes. Beautiful classics such as carrots and honeyed parsnips, but not a heap of these (they are never anyone's favourite!), but just one of each, which is exactly as much as anyone ever wants. Plus a swirl of translucent sautéed cabbage, and, of course, the most tender and delicious beef your heart could desire, with a little jug of gravy that really tastes like those delicious pan juices you get at home. So so good.
And dessert - save room, because it is heavenly. I had a small, powerful slice of tangy lemon verbena meringue pie, with a crispy, just out of the oven crust, and little mounds of fluffy, barely charred meringue.
My friend's food was as good as mine. I won't say better because it was perfect -but I had food envy. Amazing.

This was honestly the best food I've come across in my life. Not a single fault in any of our dishes, and both my girlfriend and I agreed that the scotch egg is the best we have ever had and a must order dish. The standput dish was the beef short rib, but honestly everything was exceptional. Service was friendly and comfortable; staff are knowledgeable and the surroundings are warm and rustic. We can't wait to come back.

Was very disappointed overall - not sure what the hype is about with this place. The restaurant was very hot and poorly equipped for warm weather. Service was a bit slow. Food was just ok. The prices have gone up twice since they were awarded michelin star. Simply not worth having to book the table 3 months in advance. I wouldn’t recommend
