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.
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
Beautiful food, service was experienced and friendly, this is the place to go for lunch or dinner at anytime, the food lifts your spirit. Keep it up.
Really enjoyable food. I had the chilli which although not a particular favourite of mine could become so were I to find another of this quality. My wife had a salmon fish cake served with perfect vegetables.
The service was excellent and there is a decent, reasonably priced wine list.
We would certainly eat there again
This is our new favorite restaurant. Food, although a little pricey, is always very good. Ambiance is great except it should be noted that if the restaurant is busy it can get noisy. Would highly recommend
Three of us had a very tasty lunch here. Nothing was too much bother for the very attentive waitress.
Our second visit to Harry's and both times have had a super meal. Fantastic food, lovely staff. Wish it was nearer to home!
The food was very good - choice, quality etc. Nice feel to the place, comfortable and friendly. Service was a little slow but they were full and we were in no rush so not too much of an issue at all - and the waitresses were lovely. It was end of A-Levels for us and at the end of the meal my daughter was given a choc brownie with 'Congratulations' on it - lovely and unexpected touch, which was very much appreciated. I'd definitely recommend and will certainly return.
Excellent venue for informal business lunch with good variety of meal choices on offer to suit full-on three courses or just a light lunch. Great location, just off the high street, in a lovely old building
A great restaurant with the personal touch and superb food.
We have been regular customers of Harry’s over the years and have always been impressed. It was a shame that our most recent visit was quite average as we were catching up with a good friend who has recently moved to the area and had never been to Harry’s before. The service was brilliant and friendly but sadly the food was disappointing - my wife had the chicken which she felt was spoilt with excessive herbs. I had a classic burger which was OK as far as burgers go but the fries were luke warm, dry and over cooked, my wife also felt the chips were lacking. Our friend had the crab which was obviously a good choice as she had no complaints. On reflection I should have said something to the waitress but didn’t want to spoil the occasion. We assume our experience this time was a one-off and will still come back as we love the restaurant.
Brilliant service will defiantly be visiting for dinner again.
Had a lovely dinner, great choice of starters and mains. Couldn't manage a pudding.
Great food and lovely staff. Really enjoyed the food and restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere.
We had a lovely meal at Harry's for my husbands birthday. It was at lunchtime, so not too busy. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and the service was second to none. I had already mentioned by email that we would like to have the Chateaubriand and they had made sure this was available. It was cooked perfectly and was a very enjoyable meal. It's my new favourite restaurant.
This is the second time we have visited Harrys and both times we have had great service and food.
Great atmosphere, attentive service, delicious and imaginative starters. Proportions were large. Mains were comfort food and unimaginative. Steaks not great quality and slightly overcooked. Fries were poor quality.
Delicious food with excellent and friendly service. I have enjoyed eating at Harrys for more than 20 years and although the menu has changed and evolved over time, it is always the same good value for money. Thank you!
Haven't been for a while but was as excellent as always. Daughter was home for the weekend with boyfriend so we booked (and lucky we did). Superb food - we went for all three courses and each one was perfectly presented and tasted amazing.
A great evening with attentive staff and good food. Thanks too for the unexpected birthday chocolate brownie complete with candle! A lovely touch and the perfect end to our meal.
Awesome meal, food was prompt despite being super busy and delicious, service impeccable, and Bellinis were amazing. Will definitely go back. Thanks Amy and the team!
I went here for dinner with a friend. The food was fabulous and some of the meat from local farms. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the place itself is quirky in an understated way. Very nice wine too and great value.
Arrived early and although they couldn’t get us in they advised us of a cocktail bar to go to and even gave us umbrellas to borrow due to the torrential rain!!
When we returned the service was excellent and the food was fantastic and all at a very reasonable price, would totally recommend.
Only complaint we had was the espresso martinis ordered which although were not on the menu were not made as they should be, they were very watery and had no froth on top which for £8 each were not good value, we did get £2 back but would have expected a full refund. I have attached a picture from the cocktail bar that you recommended, maybe you could get them to show you how to make one!!
Thank you for a great meal, great wine, great service but not a great espresso martini!!
Disinterested staff, tried to put us in a hot corner next to a massive noisy party (we asked to sit elsewhere) seemed grumpy about doing that. Took ages to ask us for a drink. We ordered everything then; drinks, nibbles, starters and main. Nibbles and starters came out together. Didn’t ask us if we needed another drink even tho our glasses were empty. Rib eye steak (medium rare) was full of sinue so wasted a third -half of it. Will never go back. Very disappointed as we were told steaks were brilliant there. Very expensive for mediocre food. Shame.
Fabulous as always, one of the group, commented,’you never have a bad meal at Harry’s, how true!!
Some meals rather small, (crab linguine), others too much (especially chips).Chicken rather dry. Creme brûlée was nice tasting but heavy, just custard pudding with crunchy top. They did turn the radio down...don’t see the point of playing /having to listen to a local radio station when trying to have conversations over a meal. Shouldn’t have had to ask. Lovely waitress, nice atmosphere.
Service was outstanding the food was fantastic would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Exeter this is a must
Everything good EXCEPT piped music which was far too loud!
Very good, amazing staff. Would definitely go again!
Great crab linguine 👍🏿 and good value. Nice atmosphere.
Too loud but fabulous food!
Food was good, could have done more towards making more dishes dairy free but over all good
Brilliant - as usual! Lovely food, Lovely atmosphere, Lovely staff!
Had dinner here on a Sunday. Staff were fantastic food was excellent. Can't wait to go back really enjoyed it.
Had a delicious lunch while visiting my daughter. Menu has quite a few of the classics plus a few surprises. Nice, airy lay out and very convenient for town centre.
Great value for money. The service is great and the food delicious! We will keep coming back.
Large Menu with plenty of choice. Nice seating. Restrictive wine list
