Mediterranean
The Harewood is a new exciting bar and restaurant, with a contemporary and refreshing seasonal a la carte menu. Serving modern and traditional cuisines from around the Mediterranean from morning till evening. Our specialities are Seafood and Steak, while also serving a pre-theatre menu for those visiting Cast just across the street. Our chefs are always happy to cater for any dietary requirements.

You will be warmly greeted by staff in our stylish relaxed premises, where you’re welcome to have a drink or eat. Should weather be permitting we have a substantial alfresco area for outside dining. We also have our heated rooftop terrace. A must would be our seafood platter served on ice, with a chilled glass of Prosecco or one of our amazing cocktails.

We had the most amazing experience at The Harewood! We were welcomed and sat at a table downstairs due to disability issues. The live music was outstanding, the staff were attentive and catered to every need! The food was fabulous and the kitchen team came out to ensure each detail was perfect! We will absolutely be back!!

A real gem in our town , the first time we have been, seen it a few times and thought it looked really nice but had an opportunity to try it out for cocktails, before popping over to the savoy for an opera night, we ended up having time for a cheeky quick but delicious pizza, we thought it was just a bar but were surprised they were a restaurant too , the space was really well decorated, a lovely atmosphere even outside space was made warm and cosy it felt like a treat to be there , staff were very welcoming and attentive, food looked lovely will definitely go back again to try the proper menu.

Service good, food very good
Glad we had table upstairs as downstairs too much of a thoroughfare.
Nowhere to hang coats so had to put on back of chair which was not ideal.
Toilets very good
Staff attentive and friendly

Note: service charge of 10% already on the bill when it arrived.

Will definitely return!

Food was fantastic but getting someone to take our order was a chore. We were forgot about and it took about 20 to 30 mins from sitting down to placing our order. I later learned that they had two large parties upstairs so the staff did well considering that. The portions were large and the menu is varied and they catered for my wife's celiac diet. I would definitely visit again however the jury is still out on the waiting times.

The food was lovely but the service was terrible. Unorganised and chaotic with young staff who didn't know how to use the devices given to take orders. We had to ask for drinks menus and for food menus. Manner of the staff not welcoming and rude comments made by some staff about another customer who's order was provided incorrectly.

We dined on a Saturday evening and there was very loud music downstairs and it appeared to be somewhat of a party destination - the music was loud enough to support a carnival of around 3000 people so I would steer if this would be off putting for you. We embraced this and opted to be seated upstairs within the restaurant - the ambience upstairs was much better, however they appeared to be understaffed as service was very slow and food and drinks were often forgotten. This is no reflection on the food or the service itself as the staff were all rather friendly despite.
Huge compliments to the chef as everything served was fresh and perfect from taste to presentation. The place is well fitted out and the decor is very chic - ultimately a great venue.

Service was very poor. Waited about 20 minutes before receiving a menu. When we ordered the waiter didn’t recognise any of the items we ordered from the menu, we had to show him where scallops were on the menu and the seafood paella (very odd). We ordered scallops for starter and paella for main as we were told
Seafood was the chefs speciality, especially the paella as they were all from Spain. The food took a really long time, people who arrived after us had finished their mains and we still hadn’t received starters yet. When the food eventually came they brought the main before the starter, the starter came out a minute or two later so we had both dishes at the same time. All of the fish was extremely over cooked and rubbery and completely tasteless. My partner and I love seafood so this was very obvious to us and disappointing. The paella itself was also very bland, no flavour at all. This was particularly surprising given this was supposed to be their speciality?! When the plates were eventually cleared about half an hour after we finished eating, the bar lady asked how the food was and I was polite but very honest and told her it wasn’t great. She said she would pass the feedback on. I wanted to order a dessert but we couldn’t get anyone’s attention for a menu and in the end decided we didn’t have time was we had a taxi booked. They also asked when we sat down if we had been to the cinema to see the latest James Bond film at the cinema across the road and we told them we had. It wasn’t until after paying we saw a poster to say we could have a half price drink by showing them our cinema ticket! Nobody told us this! I was also a little disappointed no effort was made to make amends for the appalling service or food. A free drink or dessert would have gone a long way. We just felt like both the service and food was very poor from start to finish. A real shame as the location near the cinema would be fab if the food was good, but we won’t bother again.

Upon arriving we were greeted, I told the staff member we had a booking, after being shown to a table we were given menu's by a member of staff who gave the impression they didn't give a s**t. The bar tender was great, but after being served our bottle of wine, no one visited the table to see if we were ok or was ready to order food. We paid for our wine and left, hungry and disgruntled.

Nowhere on the website was it advertised that it would be an ibiza night, we wouldn't have book if we'd know as the music was so loud we couldn't hear each other.

While the starters were fine the seafood paella was awful. Everything was somehow overcooked and cold at the same time and tasted of nothing. We felt like we were being rushed out by being asked to pay before the food had arrived. Cocktails were very small for price and weren't asked if we wanted more drinks or anything you'd expect from a restaurant. No hand sanitizer was available outside.

We booked for Saturday evening. Very disappointed as we were put on a put up table not a rattan table. Felt in the way a bit. It was our first evening out since the start of lock down so was quite disappointed.

2nd visit and service is still terrible. Booked a table for food at 7:30pm, rang to tell them we will be a little bit late which we was told was fine, arrived at 7:45 to not have a table. We got seated on the day bed outside but you can’t eat on there. We originally booked for a table inside, so we ended up sitting on the terrace as we had no other choice. Manager was unprofessional, swearing and not having a clue what was happening. Young girls working there were rushed off their feet and overworked. We ended up standing there for 10 mins whilst the manager sorted something but no apology was given. Food was lovely so it’s a massive shame about the service, will not return.
