I was dying to give this place a good review. I love the concept and had heard great things, so couldn't wait to go. The venue is great and the welcome warm and lovely. The letdown I'm afraid is a dated style of cooking, and a price pitch that's out of justification for delivery. The ingredients... read more

We visit Grantham once a year and our meal at Harry's Place is always the highlight of our trip. From the moment Caroline welcomes us we feel right at home and Harry's cooking is spectacular. My dietary requirements are never a problem and everything we have ever eaten has been delicious and memorable. We book from year to year to... More

We recently visited the restaurant and received a lovely welcome but we're disappointed that there was only us as a table for 2 and another table of 5 people who spoke very loudly to each other and whose conversation was difficult to miss. I would like to have seen one more choice of mains as my husband had grouse and... More

We went to Harry's Place on recommendation from a few people in our village (Sapperton). We didn't quite know what to expect....and bearing in mind we were hugely disappointed with Hambleton Hall last year.... We very much enjoyed our evening. The food was excellent. The menu - although only a choice of two dishes for each course was excellent. I... More

Having visited basically yearly for many years - we were not dissappointed. Main meat course was lanb - excellent. I would agree with the info given by the Jones' review below; it is important to understand that there are only two choices per course, meat or fish for mains; the maximum number of diners is ten. To my mind, Harry's... More

I can see why this dining experience would not suit everybody. 3 tables with just 10 covers in a private home with chef at the hotplate and wife serving. It's potentially a little intense. However, it really worked for us. Good friends said they had been and loved it. They wanted to return and invited us to join. We were... More

Celebrating my brother in law's 80th birthday in a wonderful setting with exceptional food. However, I felt disappointed that even though the owners knew that it was luncheon to celebrate a special birthday, no attempts were made to take an extra step to signify the occasion. He was verbally wished ' Happy Birthday', and the grand children were introduced to... More

Anyone who has the courage to run a high-class restaruant with just three tables gets a head start from me and Harry's Place was a delightful experience. It was a Monday night, so we had the restaurant to ourselves, which was slightly strange, but the meal was lovely. The service was excellent and charming, and the food was of a... More

Sublime cooking, solicitous service, charming hosts. Anyone who appreciates great food could not help but be impressed by Harry's Place. Why they lost their Michelin Star goodness knows. This is fine unpretentious dining and we loved it and will return.

My partner and I visited Harry's Place in January 2013. We were the only guests for lunch. The cooking was exceptionally good and refreshingly unpretentious. I remember reading online somewhere that Harry's pet hate is "little cubes of unrendered pork fat", and there was certainly nothing like that here. I remember cream of celeriac soup being unexpectedly delicious, as was... More
