    Service, ambience all excellent. Food was lovely. Starters were delicious, seafood cocktail. Unfortunatelyr my tuna steak was overcooked. Is was meant to be pink but although there was some pink, it was over.which was a shame. The rest of the food was beautiful. Drinks lovely and our servers were lovely. Drinks are pricey too but that's fine, Harry's is a special place and a treat.

However, we're sorry to hear about your tuna - we'd have happily replaced the dish had this been brought to our attention and can only apologise.

    We had an early reservation so we were seated across the room from a very restless, noisy baby. Having had children myself, I am sympathetic but I wonder if they might have been seated away from the main dining area (I think there is another room next door).
    Harry's RestaurantResponded 1 day ago
    Hi Becky. Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We do not have another dining room next door, unfortunately, only a function room which is solely set up for the purpose of group parties. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you. I am sure you understand that we would not have wanted to isolate our guests in any way by moving them into an unprepared function room. We would have not been able to serve them effectively and nor would they have enjoyed their experience being alone in an empty and unfurnished space - we thank you for your patience on the night and hope this doesn't deter you from returning in the future. Many thanks, Sam and team

    We had lunch to celebrate our daughter’s birthday and as per usual everything was spot on. We all had different mains, and each one was delicious. I had the herb crusted hake with creamed tarragon leeks, with an extra side of green beans. Superb! My wife and daughter had the lamb rump and crab linguine respectively. Both were outstandingly very good. The service was exceptional! Courteous, friendly and attentive as always! Emily on this occasion was the best. I recommend your restaurant to everyone because it has everything! 10/10 😊

    Lovely lunch to celebrate our son’s 21st birthday. Really delicious and excellently cooked chauteaubriand. Perfect tagliatelle with super tasty rocket, artichoke and parmesan salad. Great wines and helpful and friendly service. We will most definitely be back!
