Took my husband here last night to celebrate his birthday. In the booking I mentioned it was his birthday so please could we have a nice table away from the kitchen and serving area. When the waiter came to take our drink order he immediately said Happy Birthday! He was very nice. The whole service was great too, everyone was... More

Our son wanted a 'proper meal' out for his birthday. Thanks to Harpurs we had a great meal in your relaxed restaurant , with friendly waiting staff. We all enjoyed our choices from your menu. Lots of great flavours & piping hot. Hard to fault, special mention goes to the 'Happy Birthday' message written in raspberry sauce for my son... More

However,... More

It started with a last minute request for a table and Kim handled the call with total ease and professionalism. We were given a friendly greeting on arrival and service throughout the night from the whole team was exemplary. We both chose catch... More

Super meal for our party of three, each had a different main course (including a vegy) and were full of praise . What a shame the service let it down , ordered bread selection as a starter which arrived after 30 mins , main course followed after another 40 minutes . Several apologies from polite waiting staff with the statement... More

Regular visitors of Harpurs, usually for a drink, booked to have Christmas dinner here on Christmas Day. Food was lovely and service excellent, didn't feel rushed and enjoyed the atmosphere. Will definitely go back to eat and for a drink.
