Had lunch here again. Good surroundings, friendly service, and all of us had good lunch from fish and chips, burger to lamb cutlets. All presented well, and tasted good. Busy but not hurried. Do try to book, as came once before on midweek lunchtime and no table available.

We have driven past this pub many times and finally got round to eating there. The staff were very helpful and the food came quickly. Reasonably priced but a few little tweets to some of the sauces and dressings would be a good addition.

The Harrow is our restaurant of regular choice when I meet up with a lifelong friend every 6 - 8 weeks, having each worked in the same business discipline for more than 45 years.

Coming from opposite directions, we each travel 45 - 50 miles and The Harrow never lets us down. Friendly, efficient, courteous staff, well presented, reasonably priced, straightforward food and always a welcoming atmosphere.

And we're both fussy - you have to be when you work for yourself, as there is no lavish expense account for pretentious frivolities.

Service was curt and unconsidered throughout, food ordering was very delayed with hardly an apology, starters were taken away from us before we had finished them, despite the look of surprise on our faces at this , they still decided to take food away, we all had different mains, pork, lamb and duck, all with mashed potato !!! Very unimaginative and lazy.
My duck was inedible and accessorised with ‘packet’ gravy, I didn’t complain because well I’m English and was trying to be polite in company!!! But it didn’t stop the manager complaining to me because I didn’t complain, the ‘star’ dessert creme brulee had run out, shocking to be in such a position stock wise over the Christmas period. And epic fail in service just to dump our desserts on the table whilst we had gone out for a cigarette. All in all we will not come back again, despite this being our new local.

I ate in this pub today with friends for lunch. Main courses were good (specials very good, another meal from the menu ok but not excellent). When desserts came we were not happy with one of them - it wasn't a big deal, and we weren't making a major fuss, but the waitress (manager?) was defensive and clearly did not know how to handle it. Instead of "I'm sorry it wasn't what you expected, would you like a coffee on the house" we got "well we always do it like that here" (so tough!). They then refused to remove the item from the bill, so we did not tip them. They would have got more for the tip than the cost of the item!

Hesitate to denigrate this place completely, as the food was basically good, but important they learn how to handle customers who may not be 100% happy.
