We visited the Harrow for their Good Friday seafood menu and once again it was a meal to remember. Food and service were up to the usual excellent standard and were complimented by bottles from my own cellar. Our friends who accompanied us enjoyed the meal so much they instantly made another booking for the date when some friends from the North come down to West Berkshire: I can't think of a better recommendation.

The Harrow's food is very good. I particularly enjoyed the venison and the scallops. The lobster was comparatively disappointing. The wine selection is thought provoking and very well matched. The service was fine, but a little mechnical and not the level of close attention I might have expected.

We had an enjoyable lunch for four at the Harrow, midweek and we were one of two tables occupied. We went for the 5 Course menu which was quite enough for us and the quality and amount of food was about perfect and we rated it as very good. The staff were delightful, helpful and efficient.
The cost with tip was £75.00 per head. I would like to find a £25 -£30 bottle of wine in the list, they may well have existed, but with some 30 to 40 pages to look through one does not really have time. I also found the charge for cheese to be excessive at £15.00 per head and when it arrived I was underwhelmed.
I eat out for lunch on average about 3 times a week and as a local I would very much like to go to the Harrow more often without it being a special event and would be happy to pay £50.00 per head inclusive. It may well be possible but it was not made obvious.
All in all a very good experience. Thank you.

Serving staff disappeared early in the service and came back smelling very "herbal". Not appropriate for any restaurant, never mind one supposedly of such quality.

Some courses were excellent while we felt others missed the mark.

The wine was, however, very good and we were surprised to see a Canadian desert wine which tasted excellent.

Had been meaning to try The Harrow for some time and we weren’t disappointed! The staff were all very friendly and very knowledgeable about the food and wines and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. The food was out of this world - I can’t pick one course that was best, they were all excellent! Will definitely be going again.

Superb from the start. Latest of four visits we have been lucky to have had here over the past eight years, and I can honestly say this latest visit was the best (not that previous ones were bad by any means). Food was faultless and I am not easily impressed these days as we are regular fine diners, as this is an interest of ours. Wine was sublime and the ambiance was total relaxation, which was much needed by us at the moment. Can’t recommend any higher - an obvious establishment that genuinely takes pride in all aspects if their product.

The Harrow is a real gem - it is the best value 6 or 8 tasting menu I have ever had and the food is fantastic. The service is very good - not stuffy Michelin style - but very professional and very friendly.

The Harrow is run by a couple - he knows food and how to cook and present it extremely well and she does the same with the wine. Also the staff are superb! Nothing is too much trouble and their allergy awareness is second to none as well . Go there and you will not regret it and you WILL go again and again - we do !!

The experience at The Harrow was excellent. This was for our 44th Wedding Anniversary and they had a card and specially printed menu for us that showed it was for our 44th Anniversary.
All the staff were fantastic and very knowledgeable and the food presentation and Taste outstanding. I would certainly recommend this to my family and friends and we will be returning.

The Harrow maintains its very high standard throughout. The staff are very well-versed in their trade. The food is of a very high standard, beautifully presented, and tastes amazing. The wines are hand-picked by the owners, who source their supplies by visiting the vineyards, not relying on other's opinions. All in all, a very welcoming and enjoyable venue.
