I discovered this jewel many years ago and make a point of visiting every time I am in the area. The intimate dining room and limited number of covers makes this restaurant an ideal venue for a romantic meal. Caroline, front of house, is very attentive, anticipating your needs whilst maintaining a discrete distance when appropriate. The style of the... More

This restaurant was ranked 8th by The Sunday Times (in association with Harden's) in last year's 'Top 100 Restaurants -the best places to eat in Britain'.There are only three tables in the whole restaurant and Harry and Caroline have run the entire place themselves for the past 27 years. Harry cooks in the kitchen and Caroline is front of house.... More

I've lived near to Harry's Place for about 20 years and never been, so as soon as I got the opportunity to celebrate a dear friend's birthday, I jumped at the chance to pay a visit. The venue is intimate, wonderfully decorated and set up. Caroline, who looked after front of house was a great hostess, looking after our every... More

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 were top notch so... 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
