Since a major refurb in 2016, The Harcourt now stands as a fine dining restaurant in Marylebone serving Scandinavian-inspired food created by its talented kitchen team. Set inside a characterful Grade II-listed Georgian townhouse, this versatile venue exudes warmth and charm making it a great spot for everything from a quick pint after work to a celebratory group gathering.
If it’s the latter you’re in the market for, then The Harcourt has four grand and totally unique spaces available for exclusive hire. Offering a mix of Regency architecture and contemporary art, it’s a fascinating location for friends, family or colleagues to come together.
Downstairs are two smaller spaces, both seating up to eight guests. The wooden-clad Whisky Room is an intimate space featuring panelled walls, a large wooden table and heavy leather chairs that create a comfortable, rustic feel. Its antithesis lies inside the Black Room, where dark painted walls, old-fashioned furnishings and grand high ceilings give rise to a moody and mysterious ambience.
The mood brightens upstairs in the White Room, which is painted in neutral off-white tones and flooded with natural light thanks to multiple sash windows. With two open fireplaces, chandeliers and decorated with beautiful paintings, it’s an impressive room dedicated for groups of up to 26.
The piece de resistance has got to be the Garden Room, however, a light, bright and spacious room with its own dedicated bar and open skylight. This room holds up to 60 guests seated, or 70 standing, and would be perfect for seated dinners, large receptions and weddings.
The menu is largely Nordic-inspired, featuring the likes of salmon gravadlax, roast ham with cabbage and new potatoes and Swedish meatballs with mash and lingonberry jam.
