Popped into Harpurs as we'd heard it was good, was expecting a nice little wine bar but it is more of a pub complete with football on the telly. I ordered a pint of lager and a shandy for my partner and paid for the drinks, we then enquired about food and were told we would have to be seated... More

Very friendly atmosphere to this pub. It was noticeable that every person, whether they be an executive out meeting people for lunch or a disabled traveller,just wanting a drink and some food; everyone was welcomed in the same manner and nothing was too much trouble. The food was hot and plenty of it, a little pricey though. We stayed longer... More

We visited for Sunday lunch as a party of thirteen. Lovely room, Great food, friendly staff and good service. Perhaps a little too enthusiastic on asking about drinks but otherwise an excellent experience

We had herd plosives comments about Harpurs from friends. And decided to try it for ourselves. We we weren't dissapointed. From the moment we walked through the doors the service was Walm and friendly. The food we received was first class. One of the nicest meals we've had in a long time. Can't wait to return.

First time that we have eaten here. the service was excellent from having a drink at the bar through to paying our bill. Without being too fancy the food was creative, well presented and good perfectly. Well done all round.

Service very slow on last 2 visits but decided to try again because food is so good . Better this time but a 20 minute wait for somebody to attend the table after arrival is still poor ( I had to search somebody out and get a bit ratty ) ,after that things improved with the usual apologies for being...
