“Very nice”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Lovely place, nice food.I enjoyed a jacket potato with roasted veg. It was cooked perfectly. I have found Swanage to be full of either pubs serving fried foods and microwaved food and not a fresh potato or green veg in sight or expensive hotel food. So I went to Wareham in the hope of some good plain food and found this place.

“A lovely place for a quick lunch”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Staff very friendly and attentive. We went on a Thursday where you get a selection of light bites two for the price of one. So we had 2 glasses of wine, two snacks and two coffees at a very reasonable price. Light bites are just the right size for a lunchtime snack. The coffee is superb.
Will definitely visit again.

“Horrible Food”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

We all had a meal there Thursday night the 26th, what can I say, the soup was bland the pies were burnt and dry inside with meager portions of unidentified vegetable's. The gravy had the consistency of, well to be kind lets just say weak.
That said this place has the potential to be good, with a half decent fast food cook who can deliver a decent meal well presented with good size portions it should do well, as soon as it gets one we will come back.

Dear Sam
I was very sorry to read your review but not surprised. I felt that we did all we could to make your visit an enjoyable one during a very busy 2 for 1 evening. I was not aware that there was a problem with your food until I was clearing away your empty plates, there had been checks made throughout your meal and we would of been more than happy to change any meals that weren't right. I would of been happy to offer you desserts by a way of apology but you all insisted on eating your own cake which you had brought in for a birthday. We were even happy to supply you with cutlery & crockery to enable you to eat your own cake but unfortunately it seems that you were still unsatisfied. We pride ourselves on serving good honest home cooked food that is prepared by chefs rather than fast food cooks and all dishes are made here on the premises, Leek & potato soup is a very mild flavoured soup but I can only apologise if you found it bland. Sometimes the sauce from the pies does soak into the pastry which is why we supply extra home made gravy but I appreciate your comments and will look into the possibility of buying our pies in to hopefully avoid this.

“Quiet little sun trap”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

We popped in on Saturday evening and were the only ones in the sunny courtyard. The food was super. We had the chicken from the specials and the chilli nachos. Both were delicious. The nachos were much more than I had expected for a lite bite and had to ask for help to finish them. The deserts were again very big and indulgent (just the way they should be). The staff were friendly and the service was great. We will definitely be going back.

Thank you for your recent review on Harry's. All I can do is apologise profusely for your experience. You're right the waiter is very young and still in training but this does not excuse receiving bad service that you received. I will personally look into further training for all the staff. I was very sorry to read that you were not happy with you chilli nachos but I can assure you that most of our meals are home made here on the premises and that we do not use any pasta sauces. On the menu it does not state that the chilli nachos come with salsa but your right it would go well with it and should maybe by offered when ordering. We do have a hand wash basin and sanitiser under the bar which all the staff use after smoking, handling food, cleaning products or animals, I can only apologise if this wasn't used and once again assure you that training and hygiene will be looked into. I'm glad you enjoyed the ambience of Harry's we have now been open for nearly 15 years and enjoy keeping up with the times and keeping the décor fresh, which can sometimes be difficult in such an old building. We hope that your experience hasn't put you off visiting Harry's again in the future.
