Unfortunately our last visit to the Harrow, not our decision, they are closing. But been there 3 times now and always enjoyed ourselves.
Mrs Jones is a walking wines encyclopaedia, and so helpful in getting you to chose the right wine to accompany your meal.
The waiting on staff are excellent, everything is excellent.
Enjoy your retirement, after 21 years you have more than earned it

We had a fantastic visit from start to finish. A warm welcome. Attentive staff who knew their stuff! Made to feel very welcome. The food was amazing. I simply loved the scallop and black pudding with the caramel sauce! Wow. And the Red Mullet. Those were my favourites of the 8 courses but everything was delicious. My husband had the matched wines which he raved about. And the desserts! Yum!! Delicious. The service was excellent and both girls were very knowledgeable and friendly! We had a lovely evening. Thank you.

Excellent as usual! Wonderful food and excellent wine.
Slightly marred by a large and noisy table close to us but overall a lovely experience!
Seriously delicious food, we enjoyed the eight course tasting menu and struggled to name our best course!

We had a fantastic 8 course tasting menu at the Harrow on Friday. The food, wine and service were excellent as always. Book your table whilst you still can. We are going to miss the Harrow!!

Gem of a place, the staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious - we had the 7 course tasting menu and every course was just right; the boiled egg and soldier was an unexpected surprise but amazing! Such a shame it’s closing at the end of March as we would visit again.

Everything about this place is superb. All the courses were faultless. Selection of wines to go with each course was absolutely right. It is years since I had a meal this good. All the family will be thinking of this experience for a long time to come.

From the minute that we stepped in The Harrow we were treated well, the service was good and the staff where very knowledgable and helpful, even when we asked to change a couple of the dishes on the set menu for 2 of us, it wasn't a problem for them. We had the paired up wine which went exceptionally well with the food and the staff knew a lot about the pairings.
Would definitely go again

Wow - the food was amazing with service levels to match. We went for the 6 course tasting menu, wasn't sure what to expect and but every course was packed full of flavour and just the right portion size that by the end of 6 courses - plus a cheese plate to share - we were well full. The price may seem a bit in the high side but for the quality and quantity is very good value for money.

The welcome from FOH was excellent, the food was magnificent, incredible quality and cooked to perfection. My guests had the fine wine matching and it was very good, the explanations were not too intrusive and very informative. No one could decide on a favourite dish as each one was truly wonderful. A lovely place to eat and highly recommended

Fantastic food, fantastic wine and great service. What I really like about The Harrow is that you can experience all of this without the pretentious nonsense that you can sometimes experience at other Michelin starred establishments. It's the best restaurant I've ever been to.

The Harrow lived up to all my expectations. The food was delicious and its presentation excellent. There was a fine variety of choices and the wine selection to complement each course was spot on. The staff were all very attentive and the ambience perfect. All in all a super dining experience.

We loved the tasting menu - well balanced, varied and absolutely delicious. One of the best meals we've ever had. We went for my husband's birthday and a card signed by all the staff and a little champagne candle on his dessert were really thoughtful touches!

Fantastic evening. This is the third time we have eaten at The Harrow and as always the food is flawless and service excellence. We both enjoy our food and visiting a restaurant like this is our treat to ourselves which we enjoy once or twice a year. We have now been to a handful of Michelin stared restaurants and 1 with 3 stars but this is the only one that we ever return to.
