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.
9am - 2.30pm and 6pm - 9:30pm
It creates the perfect opportunity to dine in the comfort of your own private event room, or move through to dine in style within the main restaurant.
Two large city centre car parks nearby.
City centre bus station within 5 minutes walk.
Central train station within 10 minutes walk.
Went for a 21st birthday meal and it was our first time eating at Harry's, will definitely be going back! A really good range of vegetarian options which are often hard to come by, huge portions of food, definitely good value for money! The staff were absolutely lovely and very chatty, will be returning soon.
Really good atmosphere. New decor is very good. Food was excellent. Service excellent and friendly.
Amazing food and service, nothing was too much trouble. We are planning our next visit.
Lovely atmosphere with good value food and friendly service. Would come again.
We’ve visited Harry’s twice for a family meal and on both occasions have really enjoyed it. The good is truly excellent.
Family dinner - pleased we went early at 6.30 on a Saturday night as a couple of party bookings in our area so gradually the noise levels went up but you could still hold a conversation. Service great, meal lovely (I had falafel burger) others had mix of steaks, risotto and all very good. Nice choice on the wine menu also. Overall very pleased with location, table placement, menu and service. Menu had a lot to choose from - so should suit all tastes. As out of towners, we were all very pleased with the evening.
we enjoyed our meal. my only criticism is that my husband ordered the crab linguine . the potion he had was tiny. We all had lovely food and plenty of it apart from his meal. He ordered garlic bread when he seen it as he knew it wasn't enough . Shame really as pasta is cheap enough to serve. Shame. we would return though as the food was tasty.
We really enjoyed our food - India gave great service - toilets nice - the only slight frustration was that we would have liked to eat later than 6:15 but when I rang to see if I could push our booking back I was told I couldn't & that our table needed to be vacated by 8:30 - in actuality, the restaurant wasn't full & our table wasn't turned.
Excellent service and lovely food
We came to Harrys before dropping our daughter off at university in Exeter. We had booked for 2:30 but were an hour early and despite it being obviously busy the staff managed to let us in so we didn't have to wait. We were warned we might have to wait for our food but we didn't. The food all came on time, together and it was very good. My only criticism was the portions were too big and two of our party of 4 couldn't finish our meals.
Excellent food , service and ambiance . I celebrated my birthday here with my husband and daughter . We didn’t book as a birthday meal but the staff saw we were celebrating and without being prompted gave us a small cake with candle after our meal which was a lovely touch . Will definitely visit again
We visited Harrys after there refit, we have been many many times before, so I'm pleased to say the food and service is still great and with the new layout and decor it is now a fabulous place to eat and be comfortable. Friendly staff, great food, lovely decor, what more do you need!
Don't hesitate, book a table, you won't be disappointed!
Visited Harry’s with our daughter last weekend . Food was excellent and the ambience was good . Our waitress was lovely - highly recommend
Great food, great service as usual.
Love the refurb and the rest is excellent as usual, I’ll just keep coming back for more
Nice friendly atmosphere. service very good, waitresses checked back a couple of times to check all ok. allocated a table right by entrance door which was chilly every time door opened as it didn't swing closed by itself - so had to get up a few times to shut it as it happened to be a chilly evening. Rice with my chilli was baked dry in places but I didn't want all of it anyway so what I ate was fine....
perfect as always
Excellent food and great service. Would recommend for couples, families or group or for special occasions. The steaks and ribs were notable highs and tuna steak was cooked well.
Lovely contemporary restaurant with a good vibe and engaging staff - will be back!
Went with the (adult) kids before one goes back to uni, good food and atmosphere, not too quiet but able to have chat easily.friendly staff. reasonable prices
Was a great night good food service a little slow but it was the first night it had opened after Re vamp
We have been here before and had a really good experience. However this time it was a bit disappointing due to the great lack of menu choice. We were told this was because of a problem with deliveries? The food we had was very good but felt we should have been offered some discount because of the big lack of menu choice.
Great food, friendly service and excellent value. Definitely be going back!
We have been several times before but this time we took friends who are 'Harrys virgins' and they loved it From the attentive service to the great food with a few unexpected twists we had a great evening - and our friends were still talking about it the day after!
Having read good reviews, we weren't disappointed. Food portions were generous and tasty. Staff were efficient and friendly, showing attention to detail.
Excellent overall. Will certainly return after the refurbishment.
There's a reason we keep coming back to Harry's it just fantastic in every way, from welcoming staff to the great food and brilliant atmosphere..
A trip to Harry’s never disappoints! The fillet steak is delicious every time!
We came to Harry’s for my husband’s 50th Birthday. The staff were very accommodating and very friendly. My husband was delighted. They brought his cake out at the end of the evening as asked! It’s was a lovely evening
Harry's again lived up to my expectation. I was taking family members for a meal to celebrate my 92 year old mother moving to Exeter. My mother loved her fishcake and the rest of us thought the meal was excellent and will certainly be returning.
Great restaurant, with a great atmosphere and great food.
Booked a table at Harry's restaurant with my wife and daughter following my daughter's recommendation. It was early on a Monday evening and on arrival, we appeared to be the first dinner guests.
As the evening went on, the restaurant began to fill up nicely and I can see why.
We all had a very nice meal coupled by excellent service and if that is typical, then I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to other potential customers. Enjoyed!!!!!
Yet again, we had a superb family meal at Harry's. The service was spot on, the waitress was friendly and very efficient. The food was very good quality and delicious. For a special family dinner it ticked at the boxes. Food is always consistently good. Unfortunately one can always guarantee a table as it is often fully booked.
Visited on a Saturday evening for a date night date with my Husband. Just an excellent night! service amazing, ambience amazing, food superb, the starters were fresh tasted fantastic, we had the best steak we have had in ages, the fillet cooked to perfection, wine excellent, cannot thank Amy and her staff enough, as always we will return when we are back in Exeter. Well done guys credit where credit is due xxx
We were a party of four who enjoyed a very pleasant evening . Will visit again. 😊😊
Exceptional service by all staff members at Harry's and very good food at a fair price.
Really nice place to eat in. Staff super helpful and friendly. Food was great, tasty and all in just a great place to eat at.
We had a lovely meal here during a trip to Exeter. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the food was delicious! Very good portion sizes, we were too full to try the desserts. We will definitely return and would highly recommend.
Have been many times before but it never disappoints. Great food, much of it locally sourced. Good selection of cider and beer too.
Lady serving on Tuesday night completed our lovely experience.
Lovely lunch at Harry's... very generous portions left us extremely full the rest of the day! We could have shared one burger meal between two!
Fantastic food, great service, lovely feel to the restaurant
