The owners 'rescued' our group after we had been let down by other venues.They really put themselves out to make our evening very enjoyable even arranged a pianist to entertain us.The food was excellent & plenty of it! Such friendly,helpful owners serving sustainable food :)

Good food, good service, friendly ambiance, decent sized portions, and adaptable menus, reasonable prices, easiest to get a meal in Canford Cliffs due to obliging staff.

Visited a couple of weeks ago service was generally poor, barman rude, and as for the Sunday roast over done cabbage, watery swede, tough beef, never again would definitely not recommend.

You must have the wrong bistro.... 1. We only started Sunday roasts last week. 2. We don't do cabbage or swede. 3. We only have female staff on Sundays. 4. Our Roasts last week were Lamb and Turkey.

An empty bar/bistro is never overly appealing but with a long walk under our feet and no other restaurants in the vicinity with a table available we parked ourselves at Harry's. And what a great place it was. The choice on the menu was really...More
