It's now a family tradition on Good Friday after a walk we have a fish and chips lunch at Harpurs. Food and service are very good. With eleven of us including three young children it's hectic but the staff are friendly and make us very welcome.

We met a friend here for Sunday lunch and we were all impressed by the decor and the friendly, attentive staff. There was a warm atmosphere and we enjoyed a long leisurely lunch. Unfortunately the food was just about average which was a shame.

The rooms have fantastical refurbished. The beds are so comfortable and the decor in the rooms so much more relaxed. The restaurant is high quality fresh food. The service by happy professional staff very good. This is a great bespoke hotel.

The menu looked interesting ( although there was no vegetarian option if you didn't want fish curry) Presentation of the food was generally good . However, we had a long wait from receiving our plate and the vegetables arriving ( and no it was not busy) and no apology given. Staff generally attentive rather than friendly. Unfortunately the food was... More

Not been here before but were delighted to stumble across such an establishment.We were very lucky to find a table at short notice having not booked and the staff were extremely accommodating. We both had the scallops to start which were cooked to perfection and very reasonably priced. There was a slight wait for the starters but it was well... More

We stayed for one night. The accommodation was comfortable and well maintained. The food in the restaurant was delicious (puddings amazing!) and the staff, both in the restaurant and bar very helpful and accommodating. I would certainly go back to stay.

Very helpful and friendly staff, new toilets and very clean. Had to wait 40 minutes for the starter of garlic bread but it was huge and excellent. We had a ribeye steak and Lamb, it was very tasty followed by the chocolate pudding. Would recommend a visit.

We were a party of 6 and enjoyed our lunch The reason I have down marked it was because of the very poor choice of mains. Three of us had fish and chips only because we did not fancy any of the other main courses. Disappointing as I am sure if the choice was greater it would have been very... More

We have occasionally been for a drink but not food. We checked on Trip Advisor and all positive. Welcome and starter good, long wait but assumed this contributed towards being relaxed. We are talking a one hour wait for the starter plus more than that for the main! Main came and was less than luke warm. A good 5 minutes... More

We live in melbourne and we consider this our local. We love it. Food, service and wine/beer is great. They can't do enough to help. Only downside is they don't have a nice beer garden but everything else makes up for it. Wish we could stay here but as we only live over the road that would be silly lol
