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.

Experience was lovely at Harwood Arms. Menu is set to 3 course meal with delicious options to select from each course. Crab Royale was amazing! Must try! & let’s not forget the bread and butter... delicious !

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!

The food was lovely and staff better still in a lovely restaurant - it's not really a pub from what I could see! Lovely little touches on account of my wife's birthday were very much appreciated and we will definitely return.

I have eaten here at least 5 or 6 times. I've had outstanding meals and less impressive ones. My recent visit was very disappointing, so much so that I doubt I will return as there are so many other choices in London. Both courses were highly over-salted. My quail salad starter was otherwise rather bland. My pork jowl main would have been so much nicer if they'd held the extreme salt. My dessert of plum tart could not have been more underwhelming. Very thin layer of plum - so much so that I wouldn't have really known what I was eating - I was aware more of the pastry than the actual filling. My husband's brown bread ice cream was equally unimpressive - utterly tasteless. For its reputation, it was an enormous let down this visit, I'm afraid.

The pub made our anniversary a special occasion with a lovely card and a special additional pudding that was a lovely surprise. The food is always good and the service wonderful. The only the challenge being the rather pricey wine list.

Excellent food, especially the veal (advertised for two, but three could easily eat). Typically great wine pairing advice but not completely good today.

I was disappointed by our experience at Harwood Arms. I've been a few times and have always thought of the pub / restaurant as a go-to for a relaxed but 'occasion-friendly' venue with charming staff and delicious food. Unfortunately, it seems this has gone downhill. The man waiting on our table was dismissive to the point of being rude and when asked if a bottle of wine was on it's way walked off with a teenage 'yeah, yeah, yeah' retort. The starters - to the chef's credit - were absolutely delicious. The crab, especially. The mains and puddings, however, were average. It was under review from our table on whether it's difficult to deliver a 'Michelin Starred' Sunday lunch, and a different order would have stood us in good stead, but all in all: a let-down, this time around.

Seeking an alternative Sunday lunch offering to the wonderful Hawksmoor upon multiple recommendations we tried Harwood.

From the sumptuous warm rye bread, through the whipped chicken liver with thyme hobknobs, to the Sunday roast itself the Harwood Arms deliverers.

Delicious, similar price range & an all together more pubby vibe- so great for those seeking the quintessential experience but still just not quite the Hawksmoor for me.

The main reason- the service. Everyone was very nice, but a forgotten drinks order, confused face upon requesting a decanted wine & lack of traditionally tasty sounding desserts later I’d still opt for a Hawksmoor Sunday, but only just. Nice to have a good alternative.

Wow! Exceptional staff went out of their way to ensure we had a fabulous meal to celebrate or wedding anniversary. Having eaten in michelin star food widely in the UK and abroad .... this was a very good experience and very moderately priced! Well done to the whole team from the plate wash to management - we will be back and tell friends to try it!

Very nice evening. Just busy enough for there to be atmosphere but not too busy to the point that you couldn’t hear each other talk.

Whipped liver pate was good but when eaten with the homemade hobnobs it was superb. Glad the SUTTON Hoo chicken was on the specials list as I didn’t really fancy anything else on the main course menu. However, having said that it was delicious.

Usual excellent service, but overall experience let down slightly by the food this time. Marinated mackerel were delicious and perfect for the time of year, however I found the fish with green sauce less enjoyable. Despite this I am sure that I will be back.

The only negative comment is that the waiters did not clean our table when it got a bit messy - something diners would expect from a fine dining restaurant let alone a Michelin starred.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience at Harwood Arms. I am happy to say that it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. The staff was lovely, the ambiance was great, and it was fantastic to see the chef barbecuing up on the roof. I loved that we could enjoy such incredible, quality food in a more relaxed environment. I will visit this pub every time I’m in London. Thank you!!!

We had the Sunday roast which is usually excellent. This time everything was very good except the meat was quite grisly.. couldn’t chew multiple pieces. Unfortunately not worth £32 with that type of meat quality. Service and everything else excellent as usual.

Haven’t visited the Harwood for several years and delighted that standards haven’t slipped at all . A delicious Sunday lunch was also enjoyed by our grand children, 8 , 5 and 3 years . Even the accompanying bread and butter was scrumptious and the legendary scotch eggs better than ever . Keep it up
