Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

At last, a sunny day! A friendly welcome, despite no reservation and a very busy lunch service. Delicious lunch of Mediterranean tart, chef's bouillabaisse and bream. Thankyou.

We were in the City of London and it was time for lunch and we saw a signpost off Cannon Street which mentioned this and a pub. We were unimpressed by the pub menu but we had eaten at Harry's Bar in Marylebone about a...year ago and liked it. We just had one course -one of us had cottage pie which came with what looked like fresh peas and the other had duck leg with an extra side order of green beans. The duck was in a ginger sauce and was tasty as was the cottage pie . We thought of having a dessert but they were slightly unusual combinations eg apple crumble with almonds and we were planning to have tea and cake later on. The food was filling so a dessert would have been an extra indulgence. The waitresses were very nice so I would recommend this place.More

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch in the city and saw a sign off Cannon Street mentioning Harry's Bar, a pub and another restaurant in a side street. We liked the look of the menu. We had eaten more than year ago at...their restaurant in James Street Staff were friendly , the food was good and we did not have to wait long for our duck and cottage pie, which came with what looked like fresh not frozen peas. . Both were very tasty and good value. The only minus point is that to use the loo you have to go down one flight of steps and up another and then down and up again.More

Food and wine very good indeed. Service was ok this time but not worth 12.5% of the bill I’m afraid. I made a comment in a previous review that a cover charge was not appropriate in this day and age for a few pieces of...bread that weren’t requested! Although ‘my comments were noted’ not only have they not removed this charge but they’ve doubled it to £2 per head + 12.5% service charge!! Not sure if I want to return sadly.More

My first visit to Harry’s Bar and certainly not my last! A very cosy basement restaurant. The food was excellent and reasonably priced for the City of London, as was the wine. Our server, Adrianne, (hope I’ve spelt her name correctly) was very friendly and...efficient and is a credit to the restaurant. I have docked one star only because I feel that a Cover Charge of £1 per person for bread is unnecessary especially as you only get two small pieces per person! Otherwise an excellent lunch in a very friendly and pleasant restaurant.More

The dining room is in the basement – not sure if I noticed disabled access?? Menus were a little tatty – I hate this. Food was better tasting than it looked, which is strange, but there you have it. Nothing ground breaking, very traditional dishes,...but well cooked and perfectly seasoned. The service was polite, fuss free and snappy. It’s certainly not a big occasion place for me, but I’d happily eat a lunch here or dinner again. They do offer good deals in the week, which would definitely take me back.More
