I love that they call themselves a British pub and over half of the patrons that were there for lunch when we were spoke with British, Irish or Scottish accents. To me that says the place is at least relatively authentic. Basic pub fare and...More

Gastro pub implies pub atmosphere with gastronomically excellent food. This place has a pub atmosphere, but that's about it. The food is terrible, service untrained and pricing average, therefore for poor food, renders its value low. Even for a pub, the schnitzel sandwich is bad....More

The brunch menu, served between 11 and 2 on Saturday & Sunday was a real find. I had the Irish Bene and my husband the Mushrooms on Toast. Both were large servings and really tasty. We will go back for sure.

The Harp was excellent but the coffee was average. Atmosphere was quiet. We were waiting for some live music but it never seem to get going and there was no background music. Bar staff was efficient as always. We were bored and moved on.More
