Excellent food and good value for money. However you do feel like your in a scene from The Wrong Turn. The surroundings are also breathtaking with many random old lady hats stapled to the walls and Smirnoff vodka bottles decorated like vases. You can also purchase the vases if you wish which is nice. There is also lovely shiny tin-foil... More

Ok...so here goes, the food at the Harrows is excellent. Can not fault it. Its hot, fresh, tastey and plentiful. The Staff in the restaurant are also polite, warm and friendly, but thats were it stops, the landlady and decor let it down big time. She is rude without a doubt, she has no courtesy towards other people, and by... More

Had the carvery. Meat was fine. I thought the veg were fine; my wife considered them over done. The plates were snatched away virtually as the last mouthful slid down. One gained the impression that it was a case of getting bums on seats. We normally do a crossword before/after lunch. I don't this would have met with unalloyed joy... More

My wife and I visited this establishment on a Wednesday November night, amongst a party of people who were celebrating a 70th birthday. The Harrows offers a cavery which normally serves up to 7pm on a weekday. As ours was a pre-booked special party the carvery extended it’s serving hours to accommodate us. Our party was seated in the conservatory... More

called in because sandbrook park was closed the meat-choice of turkey,gammon or beef-was ok one of our party struggled with the beef. The roast potatoes were not the best and the Yorkshire pud was not very crisp. The coffee I had was awful and sent it back. Overall I prefer sandbrook park and it's cheaper.

Stopped here today was at short notice.. Didn't expect much for £5.40 a carvery but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and peaceful atmosphere.

An excellent British carvery! A choice of beef, turkey, ham and you get loads of it! The server will ask if you want more and if you are a big meat eater like me you will love this place. The vegetables are nicely cooked in the British style and you can have as much as you like. The Yorkshire pud... More
