A place to feed the soul.

Harry’s Restaurant in Exeter is set in the heart of the city and has been gratifying appetites for 25 years. Rated as one of the best restaurants in Exeter on TripAdvisor, Harry’s has established itself to become the go-to dining den on the neighbourhood food scene.

Founded in 1993 by the Pounds family, Harry’s is still independently owned and run today. The eclectic restaurant, bar and private dining room all sit within the iconic gothic style building, formerly Harry Hems’ 19th century architectural sculptors workshop.

I love this restaurant. It is an independent establishment that has been going for years thanks to its quality food, friendly service and it is staunchly independent. Sitting in its eye-catching Victorian redbrick surroundings, it's hard to miss as you’re walking into town.

For 20 years Harry’s has become part of the city’s foodie furniture - a Saturday lunchtime favourite of ours

Harry's is the kind of welcoming neighbourhood eatery you wish was on your own doorstep but rarely is

As one of Exeter’s longest established restaurants, we’d heard nothing but praise for it’s robust menu, and our meal here certainly didn’t disappoint

What I love about Harry’s is that you know you are going to have good food in a lovely buzzing atmosphere. It doesn’t matter what day of the week it is either… I would recommend Harrys to anyone who wants a unpretentious casual dining experience with a buzzing atmosphere.
Tara Smith; Tara’s Busy Kitchen
They offer a relaxed yet sophisticated setting and their menu is comprised of excellent, hearty food without any pretension. I would genuinely make an argument for Harry’s offering the best steak in town and their skillet pan cookie is worth the trip alone!
