First visit to Harry's Place. Caroline was the perfect host. We arrived late due to an issu with our Taxi, not a good start, but no issue with Harry's Place. Everything from the moment we arrived was perfect. The food was delicious. We had arranged to take our own wine for which a corkage of £20 a bottle was agreed,... More

First course was Atlantic "Prawnis" in a white wine jelly. Prawns were tasteless,hard, difficult to cut would you believe, far more likely to be the peeled pink shrimp variety and at £22.00 as a starter, very poor quality and value for money. Second course was lamb, discussed and requested as "pink" arrived "Blue" and tepid. My Monk Fish was reasonable,... More

This restaurant is outstanding. The room is elegantly furnished, providing a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere in which to dine. The food is absolutely superb, made from top quality ingredients and cooked with Harry's magical touch. Together with Caroline's excellent service, no fault could be found at all. I have never been disappointed when dining here. This restaurant deserves the highest... More

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
