The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was good, all set in an intimate environment. Will certainly go back.

Very good service, which was to be expected as the restaurant was empty. Food was pleasant enough but wouldn't really want to pay the full price for it.

The food and the welcome. We took a group of friends to Harrisons to sample their taster menu as a belated birthday treat which had been delayed due to family illness. The taster menu was very interesting as well as tasty and well presented and we all enjoyed it. The staff were also very efficient and helpful and we all had a most enjoyable evening.

When we came to make our booking for 8 people, we were told the only days there were spaces were on the Tuesday or Wednesday. (Our vouchers were about to expire on the Friday but we had been unable to use them at an earlier time due to serious family illness). We chose Tuesday and were then told we would have to arrive at 6.00 or 8.30. We were then told that the 6.00 could be stretched to 6.30. As 8.30 was definitely too late for a mid-week booking, we reluctantly agreed to 6.30 although this meant that 4 people in our party would have to rush to get there so early. We were then surprised to find the restaurant was not at all busy that evening so could not see why we had been made to arrive so early. We understand that the bookings need to be spread out for the chef but feel that the restaurant could maybe be a little more flexible in circumstances such as this when it is not particularly busy.

Excellent food

When we arrived,the male waiter said your table is over there.We went to a table and he said not that one and pointed to another! He did not seat us!He left us without a drink for quite a while.There were only another 2 people in the restaurant at that time.Later a lady in her late twentys started work and was much more welcoming than him.It was a shame as the food was amazing
