Went following a write-up in local paper. Bright, airy, comfortable, with great menu. Owner/water seemed a bit stressed, but the service was still excellent, even after I changed our order. The Review had said "big portions" but they weren't. The quality was excellent, but we were glad that we had ordered a starter to share. We had chilli - very flavoursome - and ham/chips - excellent hom cooked ham - but really could have done with a bit more, especially the chilli. Will certainly go again, though.

Yet another lovely meal at Harry's. Delicious sauce and lovely vegetables. Also friendly service and a really good atmosphere. We will be back again and again.

very good diner with tons of friendly people. Food not spectacular but very good ordinary menu. Nice to loose oneself here for a couple of hours knowing you will not get ripped off. Well worth a visit

Thought we would pop for a mid morning breakfast in the sophisticated area of Canford Cliffs village. Well, there was nothing sophisticated about it at all, except maybe the over inflated price. We ordered a full breakfast and then poached eggs with extra mushroom and bacon. What we received from our slightly grubby looking staff wouldn't have even made it into a grubby transport cafe. Watery poached eggs, deep fried mushrooms and bacon, some items forgotten and some added without being ordered and all luke warm at best. Even the coffee and orange juice were tasteless. As we prepared to leave with plenty left on our plates imagine our shock at a £22.00 bill. Quite simply the worst breakfast experience we have ever had. Don't waste your time.

Visit a couple of times a year for dinner, the food is consistently excellent and always served with a dash of panache. A comfy bar which offers a good selection of wines & beers, and an atmosphere that allows the intimate and the affable. Good value, easy parking, I'm looking forward to my next visit.
