Occupying a prime spot on the High Street, Harry’s is Harpenden’s newest bar and restaurant. It boasts a brand-new menu, carefully put together using locally sourced produce; a bespoke cocktail list utilising fresh ingredients, and spirits of the highest quality. It’s the ideal spot, whether you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion, relax with friends while supping cocktails or simply indulge in a delicious meal.
Visit at lunchtime and enjoy a reasonably priced meal from the dedicated lunch menu, which is served from Monday to Friday. Options include Southern-fried chicken wrap with chipotle mayo, chickpea and roasted pepper salad, and bagels topped with smoked salmon and cream cheese. In the evening the offering expands to encompass steaks of all sizes, build-your-own burgers, and craft beer and steak pies. The succulent ribs are a firm favourite, cooked over several hours in a secret house recipe and served falling off the bone with a choice of sides. Also rather popular is the bar menu, which is perfect for those after something light, such as nachos, braised beef sub or one of the sharing platters. Prepare to loosen your belt a notch thanks to the homemade cheesecake or the decadent chocolate brownie.
Wine is available by the glass or bottle and is the perfect way to celebrate the end of a working week. So, too, is choosing something from the vast cocktail list, with options ranging from classics like Negroni, Dark and Stormy, and White Lady to homemade originals. Alternatively take a pick from the extensive 40-plus gin range with each paired to its own tonic and garnish.
