An upmarket Fulham pub with a very serious restaurant (and wine list to match), showcasing prime British produce through skilled, imaginative modern cooking.

The Harwood Arms looks like a pub (albeit an upmarket one) with its large windows, cream walls and green panelling, widely spaced scrubbed tables and bar counter proffering a couple of real ales on tap – but, really, it’s a restaurant. And a much sought-after one at that, so expect to book, provide credit card details and be given a two-hour time slot.

Prime British produce is key, with a mounted deer’s head reminding diners that game is a speciality (vegetarians, take note: there’s nothing for you here). A main course of grilled haunch of Berkshire roe deer was indeed special: deep-flavoured, tender, pinkish meat, accompanied by beetroot, slivers of roast onion, pickled mushrooms and a rich jus. Halibut (from the specials board) was also masterfully cooked, but in size smacked of fine dining rather than pub, with a mere smear of brown shrimp sauce and a few strands of samphire: not enough to make a complete dish.

A starter of Cornish sardine ‘tart’ with heritage tomatoes failed to elevate the humble fish, but fig leaf and honey pudding with blood nectarine (fresh, and as ice-cream) was a fabulous mix of subtle, summery flavours. Our waiter (in a dressed-down uniform of pale blue shirt, skinny jeans and Converse) provided gauche but efficient service. The brown-paper wine list is a serious affair, worth splashing out on.

Unbelievable Gastro Pub - well deserving of their Michelin Star. We visited on a Friday night for a special occasion and it exceeded expectations. The food was unbelievable (main courses were chicken and deer), both cooked to perfection. 

Good selection of drinks were available, the setting is nice as it is a bit off the main area and located on a more suburban street. 


Bank Holiday lunch perfection, not usually open on Monday's, however they are for the bank holidays (they must have known it was my birthday) This is foodie heaven, completely and undeniably worthy of it's Michelin star.  The restaurant is tasteful, simple and understated they let the food do the talking. This is a food pub rather than drinks and all the tables are reserved for eating, enhancing the relaxed dining experience. Praise when praise is due, you do not often find genuine, inspired waiters however The Harwood Arms is definitely doing something right inspiring their staff to speak so knowledgeably and passionately about their menu. Peter guided us through the menu they offer 2 courses for £35.50 and 3 for £42.50 

Expect freshly made Irish soda bread infused with Guinness to get you excited before you have even ordered. 

I started with whipped chicken liver Pate, thyme hob nob crackers and onion Jam, it was unreal. The whipped pate was heaven in pot dreamy texture and taste. Followed by braised jowl of Tamworth pork, with Bacon marmalade, cider pickled cabbage and apple. It tasted in every part as good as you could imagine. I could not recommend the Harwod Arms more. 


You've heard all the hype, but this place doesn't just live up to it - it totally surpasses it.

Lovely intimate dining area with a glass roof (where you can see they grow herbs above) gives it a light and conservatory-esque feel, a chunky wine list filled with hit after hit (try the Malbec), friendly and knowledgeable service, but most importantly: food that's out of this world.

Definitely not your average pub!


The best Sunday roast I have ever had. Obviously expensive given the Michelin star, I am not sure I can afford to go back any time soon but definitely a place where to celebrate a special occasion. We were a group of six and had to book a table three months in advance!


This is right on the edge of restaurant territory. If you want to come in just for a drink, you either need to be prepared to stay at the bar or you're best off coming in either side of regular meal times. What the Harwood Arms is is a very good GastroPub. I wouldn't necessarily say it deserves it's Michelin star but for a pub to have one is pretty impressive. Somewhere else where the Michelin star jars is the price; I really don't think it is a very expensive place to eat considering it's accolades and it's menu. 

It sells itself as a game pub and the menu is small and seasonal. It's speciality venison scotch eggs with a poached egg in the middle are a must try and despite being heavily game influenced, they whipped up a fantastically tasty, if basic, vegan menu on my last visit. Really feels like one of those hidden gems in Fulham but make sure you're in the mood! 4.5 stars.

Although the food it's amazing we have lost a great pub in the neighbourhood - I secretly hope it gets back to its roots.

Stopped in for lunch today, with my daughter, son-in -law, and 10 day old granddaughter. To start the Venison Scotch Eggs not only lived up to all the hype, but exceeded my expectations, they had taken my son when he visited from the "States" two years ago. To follow the Braised neck of Herdwick lamb with rosemary curd, artichokes and garlic 'Melted" in my mouth. To finish we shared some warm donuts with two dipping sides that were most pleasing to the palate. Considering the time it was quite busy. Two other side notes: I had to change my granddaughter's diaper/nappy while I was there and they set up a table for me in a side room. Also, there was another couple from Australia, in town for the Cricket Matches, who were constantly chatting about our baby, and they indicated that from their hotel, they hopped in a cab and told the driver to take them to the best place to eat, The Harwood Arms was the destination. They loved it. They were coming back before they left London. Finally, the cost, very reasonable, yet the atmosphere was unpretentious. I will be back whenever I'm in London. "Thanks again for the fine food and most important the changing table." I rarely write reviews.

Visited for the first time yesterday and had a fantastic lunch. Evenings were booked up a week in advance so settled for a weekday lunch (booked the night before). Even for a late-ish lunch (1.30pm, so expected the work-lunch crowd to have left and there to be little atmosphere) there were a nice number of diners, not too full but certainly not dead. Had some bar snacks to start, which were superb. Then had the venison with crispy garlic potatoes which. was. to. die. for. Portion size was perfect and the wine was well paired with the food, thanks to an extremely informative wine list. I walked away feeling that despite being reaaaaasonably pricey, I had received excellent value for money. I can not recommend this place enough and will certainly, without doubt, be visiting again. 5 stars.

Having been to the Harwood on many occasions now I would, without doubt, rate it as one of the top 20 restuarants in London. The service, food and pricing are always spot on. The menu changes frequently enough to keep clients interested, and the food is made by an ANGEL!! Amazing tastes and twists on tradition without making the food over fussed or pretentious.

Wouldn't call it a pub, but excellent food and service. Prices also very reasonable.
