About Harwood Arms
The Harwood Arms re-opened in September 2008 after some much needed refurbishment.
This rural haven in the middle of Fulham is a collaboration between Brett Graham of the famed Ledbury restaurant, Mike Robinson of the acclaimed Pot Kiln pub in rural Berkshire and Edwin Vaux from the famous Vaux brewery.
The idea is to provide Londoners with a really relaxed venue for eating the finest British produce, cooked amazingly well, accompanied by excellent beer and wine at a great price.

Harwood Arms Ratings and Reviews
As good as we'd expected
We chose the Harwoof Arms for our Thanksgiving dinner. We wanted something special but not too pricey. We were a little disappointed that we could only get a 2:45 reservation (but that also indicated It was a good and popular "go to" hot spot). We were not disappointed. My husband had the lamb which he enjoyed very much. My son and I opted for the special which was a roast pork loin, superbly cooked. Cornish crab topped a delicate homemade English muffin for a truly sumptuous starter on the special. The staff was welcoming and very attentive. And the check was reasonable for this Michelin one-star gastro pub.
The food is fantastic, the values is still good and the staff as ever are always top notch ! It is still one of Londons hidden gems
100% Fit for Foodies
We stumbled over the pub by chance when looking for a restaurant to go to before a concert we had booked. It was absolutely fantastic and we were a little sad we could not spend more time out this wonderful restaurant. The starter and main course were fabulous - we enjoyed every bite and the staff was all very friendly. We will definitely plan in another visit when in London next and this time ensure we have more time
Still as good as 2014
We ate Sunday lunch here with a group; it was excellent. Prices are fair given the quality of the food; there is a long and interesting wine list and service is attentive. For me, this is still the best Sunday lunch (out) in London!
Good food but service needs honing for 5*
Have visited on 2 occasions - Thursday night work dinner, and Sunday lunch family birthday. Both experiences had similar characteristics. The food was generally a very good standard and just what was needed in pub food. However the service required some improvement. On the first visit at 2204 despite the fact the table was booked for dinner, we were asked whether we wanted anything else and we said we'd like to order desserts. The waiter said the kitchen shut at 2200 and they adamantly were not going to serve us a dessert therefore. We would happily have ordered before 2200 but nobody came over any earlier. On the second visit they were accommodating in allowing us to bring our own birthday cake but it was a real effort trying to pay and we had to ask several times for someone to bring the card machine long after the bill arrived. I would still go back but the service really needs some thinking about.
Great Sunday Supper
We came for an early Sunday Supper and were not disappointed. We loved the seasonal game menu and really enjoyed all three courses. The staff are very friendly and service is great. Would definitely visit again!
Excellent Sunday Lunch
Managed to have lunch on Saturday and Sunday when the Rugby World Cup Semis were on. Saturday was very good, Sunday lunch with Rib-Eye special was excellent! Great roasts and yorkshire pud, super gravy and excellent beef! Not the cheapest, but worth every penny!
High quality British food
This is a proper experience of high quality, creative British gastro pub cooking in a cozy athmosphere. The only downside is that the white wine by the glass list lacks old world options. Utterly enjoyable otherwise with great puddings.
Brilliant as usual. Amazing food every time
Home grown food when they can, always outstanding quality. Portion sizes are spot on. They go the extra mile for special occasions. One of my go to places for really top notch food at a reasonable price.
Excellent food. Most deserving of recognition.
Harwood Arms is incredible. It's a laid back, unpretentious British pub serving complex and creative food. Every dish is extraordinary. In fact, even the bread and butter are outstanding. Everything was cooked to perfection and bursting with flavor. The menu changes daily so you have to be open to eating whatever is being offer that day, however, I have no doubt you'll love whatever that is. Along with The Ledbury, this is probably my favorite restaurant in London. It's only a few blocks away from the West Brompton underground station and it's great value. I high recommend Harwood Arms.
Really good value lunch. Loved the decor- the windows are gorgeous and the relaxed feel. Food beaut.
Delicious food for good value
I visited this pub for the second time and loved it again. Food was excellent, service efficient and friendly and they were flexible to accommodate for last minute changes in the reservation. Good fish and vegetarian options, so all 7 of us were happy.
Simply fantastic !
Been several times over the past couple of years, and the entire team consistently delivers on the highest level. Lovely and relaxed atmosphere.
Great food in casual gastro-pub setting
Have eaten here several times, and the food is consistently excellent - creative combinations, local-sourced ingredients, great presentations. Have never been disappointed, although it had been 2 years since our last visit, and some of the same menu selections were still available...not sure how frequently the menu adjusts.
Really good experience, we will be back for sure. Excellent food, relax and good service, what else we can ask for...
Not an ordinary pub
The friendly and relaxed atmosphere makes you feel comfortable. The dishes are nicely presented and with clean and well defined taste. The Winelist is varied and sufficient. But shouldn't you be a little amused in a one star restaurant?
Improved, but better still
Compare with our visit to Harwood Armes in February 2014, the quality and presentation of the dishes have improved great deal. We liked the food very much.Two waitresses greeted us with smile and the service was friendly. However, when we sat by the fireplace, several small fries were buzzing above the table all the time and I found it a little disturbing. Also, the photographs of bullets, soldiers?, war? on the wall too grim to look at. Cann't they hung anything more jolly?
The good was superb! Very tasty, well presented. The service was excellent as well.
The best un town
Excellent dining experience. The food is both simple and sophisticated. I am an absolute fan.
You have to try the.....
Went for Nats Bday, being a fancy pub I wasn't really expecting something that out of the ordinary despite being Michelin star rated. How ever everything I ate was top notch. I won't go into to much detail as the menu changes daily but my lamb rump was probably the best cut of meat I've eaten and delicately seasoned working perfectly with the guest? ale. Nat breem was exceptionally cooked and they came with a decent amount of side with us both leaving the restaurant bursting at the seams. The puddings whilst not quite as elegant as French fine dining were pretty little things, how ever the star of the show was the scotch egg a truly exceptional dish cooked and flavoured to perfection. Oh and the staff were attentive and the atmosphere was great, really appreciated the table display with the feather. P.
What an excellent meal! We'll be back

Hearty Traditional British Food
Tucked away in the heart of Fulham this pub, which looks like any other pub which you'd normally go past, serving exeptional quality traditional British food, definitely worth a visit. My husband and me had a great evening and will surely come back.
service is too essential
the choice of food is limited. not a smile or an explanation.
A little gem. The ambience is great - a ...
A little gem. The ambience is great - a real relaxed feel without the starchy formal feeling of other restaurants. The food is great especially the bread! The service was excellent
Very poor service
Food was ok, we should have had the sunday roast that looked fantastic. Service is really poor, too relaxed. Why I think that: -They didn't bring us the butter with the bread. - Starter plates in front of you for over 15 minutes. - 40 minutes wait for the main course. - But the most dissapointing one they forgot if we would like any dessert or coffee, and we waited for near 40 minutes. I know it's a pub and i m not expecting a waiter to be next to me, but this is really poor service and a real lack of attention. Really dissapointing.
Won't be back was a let down
Had really been looking forward to it and having booked read reviews... Decided to keep an open mind! Had a lovely atmosphere and buzzy but they can't even cook a roast potato!!! They were deep fried!!! In a Michelin starred pub! When I pointed it out to the waiter he just shrugged - and said yes they were deep fried!What are they playing at....dessert was burnt tasting and my friends doughnuts were tough and stale.... Although it's local I won't recommend and won't be back! I've eaten much better in other locals without the star!
Lovely high end English pub
After living down this road for a while thought it was time to check this place out. After hearing only good things about this gastro pub my wife and I thought it was time to go try it out. This place definetly lives up to the reputation and exceeded it in my opinion! Lovely service very knowledgeable about the menu. amazing food, I love game and the chefs definetly know what they are doing with it, ( had the new season grouse). Great drinks, something warm and homely about seeing real ales avalible. Will definetly be back.
Another amazing meal
Perfection on a plate. Loved the first of the season grouse and the wood pigeon pastrami with walnuts and cherries. I would highly recommend a visit. Service is always attentive and informative.
I took my boyfriend here for dinner. It was excellent. The food is great and the pub provides a relaxed and easy atmosphere. Wine list amazing also.
Honest and heavy food
A pub with a star. English food, heavy on taste, big sauches. Service was ok, not personal but proffessional.
Disappointing repeat visit
(The only pub requiring a credit card to make a booking?) Our memories of a lazy Sunday lunch in its early heyday persuaded us to trek here again on foot on a hot and humid summer's day. It's an artfully rustic pub/restaurant and we'd planned to have the daily lunch special - good value at GBP20/25. Not keen on the chef's fish of the day, we instead opted for the set price lunch at GBP33.50/39.50 - elevating our expectations. The bread is homemade and very good. Recalling my disappointment on the previous visit when the much lauded black pudding scotch egg hadn't been on offer, while we had the drink of the day - a fancy gin, even fancier tonic featuring quinine sourced from an altitude above breathing level and an incongruous addition of fresh ginger (this was delicious, if delightfully pretentious) - we ordered scotch eggs from the bar. Tasty but the meat was dense and peeled apart, significantly inferior to the truly excellent versions we'd picked up at Borough Market over the weekend. The retro starter of herby snails on sourdough was OK as was the smoked duck salad, but hardly inspirational. We paid the extra few pounds for the osso bucco with smoked bone marrow main. Unlike any Italian veal knuckle dish as you know it, it was nevertheless tasty if a bit gamey and served with a rich wild mushroom sauce. A sizeable chunk of meat, the large marrow cavities had been scraped clean and the dish garnished with a tasty but minute bit of smoked bone marrow (see a pound coin). Short-changed? Most surprisingly, a small dish of potato mash was served for us to 'share' (delicious but at most two dessertspoonful) which, in the absence of a spoon, we greedily but ineffectually scraped out with our forks. Friendly staff, just short of being there when you need them. A tasty gastropub meal, undoubtedly, but falls short of expectations. A Michelin star - I think not. Not a bad meal meal but our most disappointing experience during a fortnight trip to London.
Wonderful as always

Relaxed Dinner For Four
We have visited the Harwood Arms on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. The venue used to be a bit of a spit-and-sawdust pub frequented by my husbands father some 20 years ago, now its a gastro-pub with a delightful young and enthusiastic staff, serving great food and wine in relaxed surroundings (no spit, and no sawdust!!)
we had a really nice lunch last Saturday...
we had a really nice lunch last Saturday. Service was very good, but we were a little disapointed with the starters. My wife had the duck ham salad, which to be honest was mainly salad with a minimal ammount of duck. we did try to mention this to our waitress, but I was not sure she understood.
The perfect choice!
The ambiance was perfect to celebrate our anniversary with candles and flowers. The service was excellent, the waiter helped us with to select the wine, gave us an extra desert worth trying and even printed a special dedicated menu for us to keep the memory: could not ask anything else! And the food... definitely Michelin standard: the perfect portion of perfect flavors. 110% recommendable!
Fantastic food! Delicious meat.
Since it was my first visit in London, I asked my friends for places to visit and got recommended Harwood arms. Easy to book a table and fantastic food and very good service.
Wonderful food but unusually slow service
For some reason on this visit the service or perhaps the kitchen was very slow and we had to wait half an hour for our dessert course, which to be fair they did not charge us for and gave us a complimentary glass of dessert wine. So in the end we were content, but got home far later than we had wished. The food is as good as you would expect with emphasis on meat and game and beautifully presented.
Excellent, as usual
I've been here 6 times now - mostly with my partner or family, and occasionally with colleagues. Each time they've been outstanding, even with awkward allergies to deal with on some occasions. A revolving gin cocktail special is always something to look forward to, and they ALWAYS recommend fab wines from their extensive list that are perfect for our food and not over-the-top expensive. Can't put a foot wrong!
Very special gastronomic pub
Food and service were exceptional. Staff are kids friendly too. The only issue, if you want to go there by car, is that there are no parking spaces around between 6pm-8pm... But this is not the fault of the restaurant!
