Founded in 1993 by the Pounds family, Harry’s is still independently owned and run today. The eclectic restaurant, bar and private dining room all sit within the iconic gothic style building, formerly Harry Hems’ 19th century architectural sculptors workshop.
Food and service were outstanding. Restaurant was just a little busy but that can’t be helped. Will definitely be recommending to friends and coming back for more.
Always a good meal at Harry’s!
Really nice atmosphere. We had cooked breakfast which was lovely. Would definately go again.
I would definetly go back to harrys again. The food was amazing and the portion size was more than enough. Would also recommend to a friend to go there and eat
We have been coming to Harry’s for 20 years and it has always been a pleasurable meal. The ribs are always superb even though the recipe was recently changed (tastier than ever now).
We love Harry’s so booked a table online for 2:30pm for a Birthday. I called up before to see if we could push the table back until 3pm but were told that last orders were at 2:30. We were greeted by a very lovely younger guy and enjoyed our starter and main, we had the ravioli and fajitas to share. I asked for an extra wrap and was given it but was told told by a lady that the restaurant does close in the afternoon “just to give us a heads up”. When booking online it told us we could have the table until 4pm. There was no info that last orders were at 2:30. We felt quite rushed and didn’t feel we could order a dessert.
Would still really recommend Harry’s as a lovely place to eat in Exeter but would have liked a heads up for next time so that we could book accordingly and have a more relaxing lunch. Thank you
Amazing food, had a lovely evening! Would 100% recommend and come back in ten future.
Great place, great food and great service. Would really recommend.

Visited Harry’s on Saturday lunchtime, had very good service and the food was very good. We have been before and we will be back no doubt. I am pleased to be able to recommend Harry’s always a great experience there

Lovely food, great service with fantastic atmosphere and music. Couldn't ask for more!
An outstanding New Year’s Eve meal from start to finish. This is now our favourite restaurant in Exeter and we will definitely return.
Amazing food, great service which was very friendly and comforting.
Very accommodating restaurant. Menu is superb and food very delicious.
Quite Simply. Harry’s is the best restaurant in Exeter.
Amazing food and drink as always! Reasonably priced for fresh, delicious meals.
Nice atmosphere, good menu with plenty of choices, competent and friendly servers. Overall very good.
We would definitely recommend your restaurant and will be returning ourselves
Fabulous as ever, great menu, well cooked food, attentive waiting staff. Definitely booking again!
Great food, excellent service, an excellent way to start the Christmas holidays
lovely building, really nice interior and warm welcome from staff.
menu looks nice, we ordered from the christmas menu.
shame when the food arrived it doesn't really match the expectation portrayed on the website or the decor and service.
simple food, basic plates of food with basic cooking and little seasoning, shame really
Friendly and efficient service. It was noisy but to be expected at xmas so didn't bother us.
Lovely foo£ and atmosphere. Not too expensive either. Would definitely recommend!
Food is exceptional and staff are so helpful.
I go with my wife every year for Christmas and have always had a 5 star evening.
Always a lively buzz with lovely attentive staff, but can be very noisy, but that's part of the charm
The entire time we were there the staff couldn't do enough, the food was incredible, 5 of us had 5 different starters, the baked goats cheese and ribs were delicious. Even had a birthday cake the staff were happy to bring out and surprise my mum with, adding a candle and singing Happy Birthday! Will visit again for sure!
Very nice restaurant and amazingly attentive service. The food was mostly nice. Would go again
The stand-out was the warmth and efficiency of all the front of house staff on an evening featuring several celebration parties. The food is both plentiful yet tasty and well presented. We surmised that the warm breads with oil we shared as a starter was two portions but the bill showed it was only one! Plenty of interesting wines, by the bottle or glass, at truly knock-down prices, some barely double what you would pay in a wine merchant's. Bravo !!
Excellent food and drink. Service was perfect as was the ambience. I would highly recommend for a special meal in Exeter.
Food was excellent! Best restaurant that I’ve been to in Exeter so far
Great selection of food to suit all tastes, good presentation, service average but unfortunately very noisy.
Fantastic, enthusiastic welcome by staff. Well timed meal and service. The food was top notch.
Nice ambience. Bread was delicious. Roast chicken with veggies was just ok. Chocolate brownie was very heavy but think that is how many like it. Wine by the glass mainly from new world and not Europe
Warm, friendly and excellent food. Near the city centre and easy to get to.
First time and Harry’s and certainly not the last. Made to feel very welcome staff were very knowledgable and confident to recommend dishes. Really lovely family meal in a beautiful restaurant.
Well done guys 😊
Harry's is myself and my families favourite restaurant in Exeter. I am a university student and every time my family comes to visit me we tend to book Harrys, as we know for sure that we will have an enjoyable evening. The staff are so friendly all the time, and the food is so fresh and really lovely. The only recommendation I would make is to change a few items on the menu and to make it more friendly to all dietary requirements, however that said they always cater for any dietary needs :)
I highly recommend Harrys restaurant for a truly memorable meal.
As always - great food and fabulous experience. Thank you.
Great food and atmosphere. Another good meal and enjoyable night out
