“A traditional pub with great food”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The moment you walk in to The Harrow , you get a warm welcome from the publican John and his staff , as well as from the open log fire . We are locals and eat and drink in The Harrow on an occasional but regular basis.
You can eat either in the bar , from the menu on the wall, or in the restaurant from the slightly different restaurant menu. Either way the food is always excellent and the service friendly , without being intrusive. Additionally there is a good wine list with something to suit all tastes. Sunday lunch at the Harrow has always been a favourite of ours, there is always a choice of traditional roasts and the portions are very generous.
The Harrow has the feel of a traditional pub and is an excellent choice for a good meal in pleasant surroundings. It's away from the main road, so on a summers day if you sit outside it will still be peaceful.We have been visiting for many years, and however many pubs we eat in, we end up comparing them to The Harrow and we always end up coming back.

“You couldn't fault it!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

FAB!!................I have been forced by Trip Advisor to 'elucidate', therefore I will do so by saying that The Harrow is both intimate & charming. A little treasure....nestling in the picturesque woodlands of Ightham, this is not your average 'Pub Grub'.Fine dining... with John, a thoroughly pleasant & knowledgeable 'Mine Host',

The atmosphere and charm at the Harrow Inn makes dining a wonderful experience

The food was excellent and I especially appreciated the linen in the restaurant.

The menu choice was varied and represented real value for money
