“Won't be going again”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Called in 7.45 Sunday and they were very busy but still managed to give a table, although it was very cramped, my husband was wrestling with a post taking up 6" of the table. We ordered by 7.55 and got our drinks about 8.10 we then waited and waited for a cheesey garlic bread starter, finally came 8.35 after asking where it was. I must say it was tasty but just took far to long to get to us. We waited again for our mains, 2 pizzas and a lasagne after asking again then finally arrived at 8.55, again the food was lovely just took far to long to get to us, had we been told our starter would take over half an hour and our mains might take over a hour to come we would of had the choice whether to stay or not but we weren't advised- communication is all that's needed - really disappointed as this was our last night as we'd been camping and had budgeted for a meal out - should have done spaghetti bog in the caravan!!!

“Mega portions !”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Great little bistro style eatery. Good atmosphere and a welcome change from bar meals. Garlic bread starters and amazing lasagne at very reasonable prices.

“Ideal place to recuperate”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Myself and my family visited this small bar/cafe twice during a recent trip to Coniston. Harry's provided us with a relaxed atmosphere and interesting menu of light snacks and heartier meals to help us recuperate after a long walk on the fells.

On my first visit I opted for the pizza which was delicious, but I soon started to jealously covet my neighbour's chef made burger and chips (hence the second visit). This, too, was outstanding. The other items from the menu chosen by my wife and kids were also very tasty and showed that the chef had put real thought into all his food.

The young lady who served us on both occasions was very friendly, helpful and professional.

I therefore wouldn't hesitate to recommend Harry's to other visitors to Coniston.

“Great location - poor service!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Looked good from the outside, inside was grubby, tables sticky and staff looking tatty! Staff brought drinks to table individually with her hand wrapped around the rim of each glass! Long wait for simple food (burgers & pizzas) Cutlery arrived after food, not asked if we required anything else.
The food was good but when a sticky grey string of "mother" came out of the plastic vinegar bottle - it finished it for us! Sent my wife and kids gipping!
