Great place to eat after a visit to the ice bowl in Gillingham. Clean and tidy but a little tired. Large portions and great choice on the menu. Friendly staff. Definitely worth another visit

After having a disappointing meal a couple of years ago we came here for lunch with our club in October and the meal was absolutely delicious with big portions. We come every month now and we have a good meal every time. The Christmas meal was fantastic and as there are around 20 of us we haven't had any complaints.... More

We are sitting in the Harrow Inn now having an Irish Coffee, extremely nice after the large lunch baguette we both consumed and believe me when I say it was large.. it was large!, really tasty and excellent quality for a fair price. Nice music in the background and very welcoming hosts. Will definitely return.

We've been here before but not for several years so we thought we'd pop in for lunch. We chose a weekday as it always seems busy at the weekend and it wasn't difficult to see why. Friendly staff, good service and delicious food with generous portions. My only disappointment, which is no reflection on the pub, was I was driving... More

My friend and I went there recently and were extremely happy with the food. I had sweet and sour chicken with rice. It was delicious.!! My friend had Lasange and she said it was lovely and lots of it with masses of garlic bread and salad. I then decided to have a dessert but knew I couldn't eat a large... More
