Lovely food - this time opted for the ribs as opposed to my usual order of steak. Whilst the ribs fell slightly short of the excellent steaks, they were still delightful and very filling. Excellent service too as always.

Excellent food and service.
Only suggestion would be to make it clearer on the menu that anything identified as for sharing is per head.

Our first time with the brunch menu and very pleasantly surprised. The service had the usual perfect balance of being there whenever needed but not hovering. Food was lovely and a great little menu. Overall another great Harry’s experience. Thanks to everyone there

Excellent quality which is very satisfying. We think the choices available have been reduced but understand the probable reasons but hope the menu will expand again next year? Service was attentive, prompt and friendly. Present emergency measures (social distancing etc...) all very well managed.

I met two friends for a girly lunch, first time any of us had been to Harry's. The food choice was amazing and I was tempted by most things on the menu. I had wild boar tortellini which was delicious, will definitely go back!

Food was simple but very nice.
Portion size for starters, sides and desserts was on the generous side. We all ad steak so the sizes are all given in advance.
Tee steaks were cooked exactly as ordered
We went fora late Sunday Lunch and they do close in the afternoon , so were were the last two full table, however we had a very leisurely lunch and didn't feel in anyway pressured to move on.

Fun Bistro Atmosphere with fun friendly staff. The menu was exciting and varied and would definitely go again. My only issue was with Ribs which I would have preferred in a rack and a bit more tasty / sticky & saucy. Otherwise a fab lunch had by all.

Lovey place, with amazing food! The price is really good for the food you get (coming from a student who finds it hard to part with money 😂). A really nice place for date night, celebrations or catching up with friends. Would recommend and can’t wait to go back.

We had a great meal here in this new Covid environment. We were checked at door for our temperature but then advised we were ok without masks as tables were well spaced. Great care was taken throughout to minimize contact so we were given trays to unload ourselves. All done politely and well thought out. Meal was amazing. So fantastic to have the opportunity to enjoy really good food in a nice environment that still manages to maintain standards for limiting contact. A really great night and we will be back!

This was our first proper indoor meal out post lockdown to celebrate our daughters 18th and our first visit to Harry's. The staff were attentive and the food was amazing - great steaks burgers and vegetarian options too - our whole party of 6 had plenty of choice. The covid safety measures were all in place but not obtrusively to deter from the ambience and experience. We will definitely be returning.

We chose to sit outside so got the benefit of live singing from the students across the road which we throughly enjoyed! Staff were lovely and provided blankets in case we got cold service was with a smile and the food was very good. Would definitely go back.

Super restaurant, really trying hard to make the COVID procédures as easy to adapt to as possible. Great atmosphere despite social distancing, friendly But discreet Service with needs anticipated. Food was superb Best Lasagne I’ve had in a long time & my husbands steak was perfect and he is fussy. Just an all round lovely treat in our new world -well done Harry’s restaurant staff !
