Well worth a visit

My wife and I have dined at Harry's Restaurant on several occasions, and have always found the food to be excellent - particularly the duck (served pink!). If there is a criticism, it is that the service can be a little slow, but, perhaps, the old adage that "all good things come to he who waits... read more

We had not booked for a weekday evening but were given a table. We waited 40 minutes for starters, with no explanation or apology. When this came, it was OK (very oily), but we were hungry. The mains came quickly after this but had obviously been hanging around for some time. They were dreadful, cold, congealed and inedible. The waitresses... More

We came across Harry's on our way to Frinton beach this bank holiday Monday. What a lovely find! Very fresh food which was well served by friendly staff in a nice environment. Although we had gone for lunch, we would definitely like to go there again and possibly try breakfast, tea or dinner! The main restaurant was air conditioned but... More

A really great setting. The food is excellent with good choices. The steak is a must as are the delicious pancakes. Value for money with a comfortable ambience.

Visited with friends, a very clean and well presented restaurant. Good menu, sensibly priced. We were forced indoors due to weather, but a Sunday on the patio should be super.

Went to Harry's Restaurant last night and had a great evening. The food was beautifullly cooked and the service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable and we didn't get tucked up on the drinks like sometimes happens. The restaurant is well appointed and looks modern and smart, The terrace area is also lovely for a drink outside if its warm... More

I am not local to Thorpe, but use this restaurant for lunch whenever I visit a friend in a nearby village. At our last visit we shared a mixed platter meat starter (parma ham, salami, chorizo etc), a bottle of pinot grigio and a fish main course. The food has always been of a very high standard, chosen from a... More

As soon as we arrived we were met in the bar by a smiling barmaid who quickly took our drinks order whilst we were waiting for everyone to arrive. We were shown to our table and received five star treatment. The staff always wore a smile and great at explaining what certain dishes were. They catered to our every need.... More
