    Arrived to be told that open table bookings should not be open online as they were already fully booked. (Not our problem) Slotted into someone else’s table for 1.5 hours which was fine. Given that we were asked to be finished by a certain time, service was appalling and did not help under time constraints. Had to ask for menus after 20 mins and then ask for our order to be taken. Also had to remind staff of our drink and food order as no sign of either. Frustrating to see staff standing idle behind the bar while ourselves and other tables were not being served. Food was good when it did arrive, aider by younger staff starting their shift and being attentive to customers. Overall would not recommend- felt like we were an inconvenience from the second we walked in the door.

    Seating plan was not available the waitress was looking for the manager said I had the confirmation by email but she said she needed the seating plan, the usual tables reserved for evening to be then told sit anywhere after about 10 minutes . When our starters arrived we had no cutlery had to call the waitress same thing with the mains ordered chocolate fondant and got chocolate delice said to waiter we ordered a chocolate fondant to be told that is our chocolate fondant!!! I think the staff need extra training on menu and floor service it was very poor

    Having checked that it is accessible, the entrance has two high steps. Furthermore the toilets are on a lower floor accessible by stairs. Food was ok - more batter than fish in the fish & chips. The chips were good, and ready salted. Long wait for desert. Wouldn't return.

    Couldn’t find my booking even though I got a reminder 24 hrs beforehand, did have a table as every few in the place and the menu from that on the website had changed only an option of 3 main courses.

    I used to love this place until yesterday. My wife and I checked if we can find a table on open table and we found a booking for 17:30, when we booked was like 16:50. We were happy and we went there, and when we told the staff that we are having a booking and showed them our confirmation no from open table, they said that there is no booking and laughed at us and made us feel stupid. They told us that we can sit outside because inside is full booked, even tho I selected inside table when I done the booking. So we decided to leave and never come back. I also stopped using open table because is clearly not working, some restaurants allow booking but when u go there, no booking. Stay away from Harcourt hotel restaurant!

    Garden Bar was extremely quiet. Heaters were not on and music was extremely loud for 7pm in the evening. Would like to visit again on a busier night ...Garden Bar was amazing but did not experience the normal atmosphere. Will visit again though...Cocktails were lovely

    Even if we booked a table for outdoor, they reserved a table inside without taking our permission. When we asked the reason, they said the outdoor was fully booked by one company. It was disappointing and we had to leave without ordering.

    Never in my life I left a bad review but this has to be noted. We had booked a family meal to celebrate our daughter 21st birthday because of the menu available and the ambiance of the restaurant. When we arrived we were sat at a table in the bar, and we were told the restaurant wasn’t available due to a party, even though we had a confirmed reservation. The waiter arrived with a set menu with an extremely poor choice of ‘bar food’. When asked could they accommodate one of the meals from the original menu, because of the special occasion, he asked the manager and came back saying it was not possible because they were too busy with the party. The restaurant should have notified anyone who booked that night about all the changes for the night at the time of booking, and we would have booked somewhere else. The manager did NOT make any effort whatsoever, did NOT come to us and sent the waiter instead to deal with it (he was v nice apologetic and not his fault). Their manager customer service is appalling! We left the restaurant disgusted and will never go back!! We were left looking for somewhere else to celebrate her birthday at 8.30 on a Thursday night. Avoid at all cost!!

    Dear Claudia, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. May I begin by expressing my sincere apologies that your visit did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, we did have an event on Thursday the 7th of July and our menu was limited as a result of this. We do apologize that this impacted your visit. However, should you ever choose to return we would be delighted to ensure everything is as it should be. Many thanks, The Harcourt Bar and Garden

    We went to the restaurant for our valentine’s dinner, as soon as they sat us down at the table and provided us with the menu a waiter came to inform us that due to internal problems in the kitchen they would not be serving food anymore, when we asked what the technical problem was the waiter said that they had just stopped taking orders, no respect with us at all, I booked the table days before to come there and not be able to even have dinner, it was almost 10pm. Thanks to Toscana restaurant at temple bar that saved our night and made our night special, because if it was up to harcourt bar and lounge we wouldn’t have had a dinner, just drinks.

    Lovely place, staff are attentive and friendly, food and drinks were fab. The crowd that it attracts are just a bit messy and fond of doing a line or 2 in the bathroom. Not the bars fault at all, just a shame the customers are the only let down about the place.
