Our first visit to Harpurs and we were very impressed with the quality of the food. We found the prices to be very reasonable and a good choice.. The pan seared scallops were imaginatively presented and the combination of the scallop with black pudding was certainly different and very tasty. 2 of our party opted for the Duo of Beef... More

We are lucky enough to live a short walk from Harpurs and having recently moved to Melbourne decided to try the food. There is a great bar area, where you can eat if you want, a lounge and then a smart upstairs restaurant. We ate upstairs, having reserved a table online. The restaurant is really nice and very comfortable. The... More

This was my first time in this pub and on entering it seemed a great place, busy with a good atmosphere. However when ordering a vodka and coke it was served in a large glass with coke to the top, after asking politely for another one with a small amount of coke it was snatched away by the very rude...

I use the hotel as a bar but have had some fantastic experiences in the restaurant area, the bar staff work in the restaurant, at front of house, rear of house and even collecting glasses from the outside seating area. Lovely staff.

Twenty-two members of my family arrived in Melbourne for our annual get-together over a saturday lunch. For some, it was a first visit to the town, and as the organiser on this occasion I was anxious for all to go smoothly. It did. A lovely area had been set out upstairs for us and on Tom's advice we had pre-ordered... More

I took my family to Harpurs on 29th October for an early evening meal and we chose Harpurs Burgers, Fish and Chips and the Ceasar Salad from the menu. The food was delicious and well presented. The staff were very attentive and friendly. I use Harpurs a lot and always enjoys visiting whether for a meal or just a drink... More

Lovely looking place.Popular and geared for the younger set but it does draw some names.. James Whittam had a table booked on the Saturday in their restaurant. Found out later it was his birthday. It was also Moto GP weekend at Donington 5 minutes up the road. Unusual traditional beers inc one brewed for a heavy metal band.
