    Fantastic on all accounts- have already booked to go back! Literally nothing to fault! Staff were friendly, atmosphere relaxed. No ridiculously loud music so you can actually talk to your friends/family etc. Food was wonderful and impressive wine list.

    We asked for medium steak. They had been blanched previously and there was an attempt to pan fry to make it look like it had been pan fried which failed. It was served looking insipid and was cold. The vegetables were nice though. Massively overpriced considering it wasn’t cooked authentically.
    Harry's RestaurantResponded 7 days ago
    Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We do not pan-fry our steaks. Instead, they are all flame-grilled fresh to order. Had the temperature been brought to our attention, we'd have happily replaced the entire dish for you. We apologise for any inconvenience. We hope this doesn't deter you from returning in the future. Many thanks, Sam and team

    Amazing food, location and service. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive and catered to my heavily pregnant partner's needs of a table near the toilets etc. Will be coming back again without a doubt.
