SquareMeal Review of
With its labyrinthine layout, cream & burgundy colour scheme and smartly traditional trappings, the original Harry’s manages to be both jovial and cosy – in contrast to its chic, buzzy
sibling on Ironmonger Lane. Wines include a reasonable selection by the glass and a generous helping of sub-£20 bottles, as well as some more upmarket names including a Brunello di Montalcino
(£70) and a Champagne selection aimed at the flush City crowd. As for food, readers appreciate the kitchen’s use of ‘very good, fresh ingredients’ in dishes such as pan-fried pheasant suprême
with chestnut mushrooms, port jus and dauphinoise potatoes. The informal bar menu encompasses sandwiches, platters and a few straightforward mains – think homemade pies or ham, egg and chips.
